Muskie hopes of a championship at the eight-team Marshall Hilltopper Classic in Duluth have been dashed.
Fort High fell 5-3 to the Edgewood Crusaders (Madison, Wis.) last night, which knocked the black-and-gold to the consolation side of the tourney.
The Muskies will look to earn a trip to the consolation final when they take on Irondale (Mn.) this afternoon.
A loss, however, would drop Fort High to the seventh-place game tomorrow morning.
After the tournament, Fort High will be back in action Jan. 4 with an exhibition game against the host International Falls Broncos.
