Muskie ‘birders’ ousted


The quest for OFSAA gold by the Muskie senior boys’ badminton duo of Robert Stevens and Spencer Pearce came to an end this morning in Aurora.
The NWOSSAA champs lost in straight sets (21-19/21-16) to the Toronto tandem of Wayne Fu and Calvin Sy in ‘B’ draw competition, which brought an end to their tournament.
The black-and-gold had lost their opening match of the ‘A’ draw yesterday in three sets (21-19, 17-21, and 18-21) to Simon Harmgardt and Trevor Hoff from T.A. Blakelock (Oakville), which dropped them down to the ‘B’ draw.
The Muskie twosome quickly rebounded later in the afternoon, however, sweeping Travis Feddemann/Mark Fyk (Smithville) in straight sets (21-17/22-20) to set the stage for this morning’s match.
The OFSAA tournament wraps up tomorrow.
