Esso Leafs score lopsided win

A five-goal second period helped propel the Emo Esso Leafs to an 11-1 blow-out over Fort Frances in Atom hockey action.

Nathan DeBungee led the way with a hat trick while Tyler Kinnear added a pair of goals. Maverick Judson, Ryan Witherspoon, Brock Benjamin, Tyler Cottan, Riley Caul, and Matt Reck rounded out the scoring.

Figure skaters pass test day

Facing the pressure of their first regional test day of the season, members of the Border Figure Skating Club passed in more ways than one here last weekend.

“It was an absolutely excellent weekend,” enthused BFSC co-coach Penny McComb. “We hope for 100 percent passes and we got close to 90 percent.”

KCs finish fourth in Burnsville

After going undefeated in their first three games, the local KC PeeWee ‘AA’ rep team was shut out in their last two to finish in fourth place at a hockey tournament in Burnsville, Mn. over the weekend.

They had started the tournament on fire, pummelling Northern Colorado 9-1 in their first game Friday afternoon.

Spikers bounced at all-Ontarios

When the Muskie senior boys’ volleyball team headed to the all-Ontarios in St. Thomas last week, they knew their opponents would be bigger, stronger, and faster than the ones here in the northwest.

And to be able to compete, they knew they’d have to bring their ‘A’ game to the court.

But that didn’t happen—and the result was an 0-4 record and a quick exit from OFSAA.

Total domination

The Muskies continued their domination of NorWOSSA so far this hockey season with a pair of lopsided wins over the Sioux Lookout Warriors here over the weekend.

Winning 11-1 Friday night and then 13-0 on Saturday afternoon, the victories left the black-and-gold firmly atop the standings with a 6-0 record.

Bonot rink crowned senior champs

With a “Northwestern” crown already under their belt, Bryan Bonot’s rink now has their sights on an even bigger task.

A provincial title.

And why not? Bonot’s foursome of third Terry Lee, second Ron Martinuk, and new lead Ted Stewart (taking over from the injured Ken Noble) were the class of the “Northwesterns” last week in Thunder Bay.

Muskies net another easy win

While being careful not to compare this year’s edition of the Muskies to the team that won all-Ontario gold here in 1989, head coach Glen Edwards admitted he’s having a tough time remembering a past squad that’s had such a dominating start.

The black-and-gold improved their NorWOSSA-leading record to a perfect 4-0 with a 7-2 win over the Dryden Eagles there last night.

Spikers bound for all-Ontarios

Fresh off a sweep of the Churchill Trojans last weekend for the NWOSSAA crown, the Muskie senior boys’ volleyball team is en route to St. Thomas today for the all-Ontarios.

And they don’t plan on just making an appearance there. In fact, the black-and-gold have their sights set on nothing less than a gold medal.
