The Muskies court teams were close in three of four matches yesterday in Dryden, but couldn’t quite stop the Dryden Eagles from taking flight.
Only the junior boys’ volleyball team (4-1) came home victorious, though it didn’t come easy—needing five sets to take a back-and-forth 3-2 win by scores of 25-23, 14-25, 25-21, 23-25, and 15-13.
The senior squad (2-3) fell in four sets by scores of 25-19, 25-21, 17-25, and 25-15.
On the hardwood, both Muskie hoops teams suffered a pair of overtime heartbreakers.
The seniors (4-1) suffered their first loss of the NorWOSSA campaign with a 28-23 setback.
Meanwhile, the juniors (2-3) were edged 27-26 after allowing the Eagles to battle back from a 13-10 halftime deficit.
Dryden eventually won it by sinking the winning foul shot in the extra period.
Sarah Glover netted eight points to lead the black-and-gold, with Alanna Walsh and Celia Berry adding six apiece.
No scorers were reported for the senior game.
The Muskies won’t resume league play until Oct. 26 when they visit Kenora.
Fort High will host the NorWOSSA playoffs Nov. 10.
