Broncos beat Muskies

Take away Derek Schelske and the Muskie ‘A’ football team would have scored a shutout.
The Kenora Broncos running back ruined the annual Homecoming game for the black-and-gold by rushing for three touchdowns to lift his team to a 20-2 victory Friday afternoon in Winnipeg High School Football League action.
The Muskies (0-5) went toe-to-toe with the undefeated Broncos (5-0) in bizarre weather conditions, which alternated between sunny skies and driving rain complete with bitterly cold winds.
But after taking a 2-0 lead into the second quarter via a conceded safety, the Muskies were kept off the scoreboard the rest of the way by a stingy Bronco defence.
Meanwhile, Schelske scorched the Muskie defence with three big plays, including a 41-yard run in the second quarter that set up his three-yard touchdown plunge two plays later to give Kenora a 7-2 lead.
Then in the dying seconds of the first half, Schelske shook off at least two Muskie tacklers while rambling 62 yards for the major and a 14-2 lead.
He returned to inflict more damage in the third quarter, taking a pitch around the left corner and sailing 71 yards down the sideline to the end zone.
The Broncos missed the convert to leave the score 20-2.
The Muskies are scheduled to host the Grant Park Pirates here this Friday at 3 p.m. before closing out the WHSFL regular season next Friday (Oct. 18) against Sisler on the artificial turf at Winnipeg Stadium.
