Muskies swept by Vikings


A berth to the all-Ontarios just wasn’t to be for the Muskie senior girls’ basketball team.
The black-and-gold were swept by the Hammarskjold Vikings at the best-of-three NWOSSAA championship held Friday and Saturday in Thunder Bay.
It was dominant weekend for the hosts as they routed the Muskies 58-21 in the opener Friday.
Ellie Petsnick led the black-and-gold offensively with six points, with Jamie Spencer adding five and Grace Petsnick four.
Then in the second game Saturday morning, the Vikings eked out a tight 41-35 victory to book their ticket to OFSAA on Nov. 22-24 in London.
Fort High had trimmed the Vikings’ lead to as little as 22-18 at halftime in that one but ultimately came up short in the end.
Grace Petsnick and Jamie Spencer led the Muskies with eight points apiece.
Bella Ward added six points while Ellie Petsnick and Sarah Larson both netted five.
Janissa Judson tallied three points to round out the Muskies’ offence.
