Facing the Kenora Broncos in the semi-finals of an eight-team senior boys’ tournament there Saturday, the Muskies admitted they were a bit leery heading into the matchup.

Life couldn’t be any better for the Muskie senior girls’ basketball team heading into the final game of the regular season today against Kenora.

With several players out of the lineup for various reasons, last Friday’s game here against the Kenora Broncos definitely was gut-check time for the black-and-gold.

The afternoon began with the Muskie senior football team smashing a pumpkin bearing the #20 on the sidelines in reference to stopping Byron McKenzie, the Dryden Eagles’ star running back.
It continued with calls of “Stop the pumpkin!” by the Muskie defence before the snap of the ball throughout the game.
It ended with a skirmish involving three assistant coaches.
