Muskie court teams struggle in Dryden

The four Muskie court teams followed a similar pattern against the host Dryden Eagles yesterday, with only the junior girls’ basketball team coming home with a win.
The junior dumped the Eagles 49-23 to improve their NorWOSSA record to 4-1.
Kayla Windigo led the way with 15 points. Taylor Meyers (11 points) and Lauren Gurski (nine) also contributed at the offensive end.
But the Eagles got their revenge on the basketball court later in the afternoon when their senior girls’ team trounced the black-and-gold 36-21.
In a near carbon-copy of last week’s loss to the Kenora Broncos, the Muskies (1-4) fell behind early and could not overcome the deficit despite a strong fourth quarter of play.
Emily Haggberg and Alyssa Holliday were the high scorers for the Muskies (their point totals were not provided).
And it was another tough day for the Muskie boys on the volleyball court—both the junior and senior spikers were swept in three sets by the Eagles to remain winless in NorWOSSA play.
The junior Muskies started strong, losing the first set 25-22 against a strong Dryden team.
But, as has been the case all season long, the black-and-gold faded as the best-of-five match progressed and lost the next two sets by scores of 25-17 and 25-12.
The seniors, meanwhile, came out flat to start their match, dropping the opening set 25-14.
They lost the second one 25-18 before coming on strong in the third set en route to a 25-23 setback.
The Muskies resume NorWOSSA action next Tuesday (Oct. 24) when they host the Kenora Broncos starting at 3:30 p.m.
