Muskie girls heading off


The Muskie girls’ hockey team will look to hit the ground running this weekend following their two-week Christmas break.
The black-and-gold will be in action at the annual Loop Weekend tournament in Thunder Bay set for this Friday through Sunday, where they’ll face the Midget Fury, Confederation College, and both the ‘A’ and ‘AA’ Midget Queens.
Fort High (2-3-0-1) then will kick off second-half NorWOSSA play next Tuesday (Jan. 8) when they host the Dryden Eagles (6-1) at 7 p.m. at the Ice For Kids Arena.
The Muskie boys, who currently sport a 5-2 league record, also will resume NorWOSSA action next Tuesday when they hit the road to face the Red Lake Rams.
Then they’ll compete at the annual Piper Classic tournament in Winnipeg on Jan. 10-13.
