Muskie boys still unbeaten

The Muskie boys’ hockey team improved to 4-0 in NorWOSSA play following a 4-1 victory over the Kenora Broncos here Tuesday night.
“We moved the puck a little bit better and we missed a few less passes than we have recently,” head coach Shawn Jourdain noted afterwards.

“Overall, though, it was very similar to how we played in our game here [against St. Thomas Aquinas] last week,” he added.
Forward Dylan Curtis kick-started the black-and-gold in the first period, netting two goals in a 22-second span for a lead the team would never relinquish.
“It was a pretty good feeling to help the team out like that,” Curtis smiled.
“We were able to take that two-goal lead and carry that over into the second and the third period, so that was a huge difference for us,” he reasoned.
Braden Webb and Tyler Mosbeck also scored for the Muskies while Broncos’ forward Adam Vaughn ruined Jonah Johnson’s shutout bid late in the third period.
The black-and-gold next will face the host Dryden Eagles tonight in what will be their last game before a work-to-rule edict set out by the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation takes effect Monday.
“We saw Dryden play in a tournament in Brandon this past weekend, and they’ve come along since we played them last,” Mosbeck noted.
“We just need to grind them out and hope for the best.”
With all extra-curricular activities at Fort High grinding to a halt starting Monday, the Muskies have had three of their games scheduled for next week cancelled.
Those games were to see the squad travel to Red Lake on Sunday, pay a visit to St. Thomas Aquinas in Kenora on Monday, and then host Kittson in exhibition action next Friday.
