Muskies romp to wins

The Sioux Lookout Warriors couldn’t escape the wrath of Muskie hockey no matter where they went.
The Muskie girls routed the Warriors 15-0 here last night while the boys’ crew laid an 11-1 whipping on their hosts up in Sioux Lookout.

It was a firing range here as the black-and-gold basically lived in the Warriors’ zone the entire game—even switching defence up to play forward and vice-versa throughout the second half.
The Muskies (10-0 in NorWOSSA play) led 3-0 after the first and 13-0 after the second.
That led to a decision to skip flooding the ice between the second and third periods, as well as to play the third in running time to get the Warriors back on the bus quicker for their lengthy journey home.
Meanwhile, the Muskie boys (7-1 in NorWOSSA) raced out to a 6-1 lead after the first and coasted to victory from there.
Goal scorers from both games were unavailable by press time.
The Muskie boys next head to Red Lake for a two-game set today and tomorrow against the Rams (2-8).
Their next home action is this Tuesday in a special 10 a.m. make-up game against Sioux Lookout, which features free admission.
The girls’ squad travels to Kenora on Monday to face the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints.
Their next home game is slated Feb. 11 against the Dryden Eagles.
