Muskie boys open with win

The Muskie boys’ hockey team had little trouble with the Kenora Broncos here Friday night, opening their best-of-three NorWOSSA semi-final series with a convincing 8-1 win.
Game 2 was supposed to have been played yesterday, but instead that game will go tonight in Kenora.
If the Muskies win, they’ll face the Eagles for the NorWOSSA title.
Dryden advanced to the best-ofthree final after sweeping the Red Lake Rams in their semi-final series Justin Larson had two goals and two assists in Friday night’s win while Josh Sigurdson and Tyler Miller each had two points. Jason Green earned the win in goal.
Meanwhile, the Muskie girls’ hockey team saw their season come to an end here yesterday afternoon after a 5-3 loss to the Dryden Eagles despite having led 3-1 going into the third period.
The Eagles had opened the bestof- three series with a win Friday night in Dryden.
Still, the coaches expected the team to be very proud of everything it accomplished this season.
“We’ve come a long way,” said assistant coach Al Barr. “From getting blown out 12-1, 12-0 to being able to come and play a high calibre team and play with them right to the end.”^Graduating goalie Megan Bob had an excellent game for the Muskies yesterday.
“We don’t know if Megan will be back next year, but I don’t think Megan, or any of them, have any regrets,” said head coach Jim McMahon.
The team will have at least 10 players returning next season and should be able to recruit more than the 13 skaters they had this year.
