Muskie boys nab bye


The Muskie boys’ soccer team (5-0-1) swept away the competition in Kenora yesterday to finish in first place and earn a bye to the NorWOSSA final here this coming Wednesday.
James Gushulak and Cam Lidkea both scored twice to pace the Muskies to an 8-0 rout of the Dryden Eagles in their first game yesterday.
Aaron Bujold, Cole Magill, Sully Shortreed, and Nick Hahkala also tallied in the offensive outburst.
Brett Allan then had a pair of markers in a 3-0 win over the host Broncos.
Riley Argue notched the other goal.
In girls’ action, the Muskies (1-4-1) dropped a 2-1 decision to Dryden before battling the Broncos to a scoreless draw.
Pasquel Shortreed had the team’s lone marker against Dryden.
That left Fort High in third place–putting it into a semi-final showdown against Kenora here next Wednesday.
That winner then will face the Eagles, who have the bye to the final by virtue of their first-place finish.
In Rainy River Owls’ playoff soccer action, the girls’ squad nabbed a 3-1 victory over the Sioux Lookout Warriors yesterday in Red Lake to advance to today’s NorWOSSA ‘A’ final against the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints (Kenora).
But the boys lost to the Warriors by an identical 3-1 score in their semi-final match, ending their season.
