Trips to Thunder Bay in recent pre-seasons have not exactly been kind to the Muskie boys’ hockey team.
This past weekend was a definite exception.
The Muskies went undefeated in three outings against the host Thunder Bay Minor Midget ‘AA’ Kings, collecting two wins and a tie.
On Friday, Cole Allan tallied twice while Jace Jackson notched the other as Fort High prevailed 3-1.
Brett Kenny netted the winner in overtime in the Muskies’ 3-2 victory Saturday.
Kenny was back for more yesterday, scoring twice to go along with a goal by James Gushulak in a 3-3 draw.
Spencer Murphy and Darian Klem handled goaltending duties throughout the weekend.
The Muskies will make their tournament debut Oct. 19-22 in Winnipeg.
The squad then opens the NorWOSSA regular season Nov. 14 here against the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints (Kenora).
