Muskies lose three of four to Broncos

The Muskie junior girls’ volleyball team was the only one to come home from Kenora with a victory yesterday.
The squad improved its NorWOSSA record to 2-1 with a 3-1 win in the best-of-five showdown against the host Broncos. The scores were 25-20, 12-25, 25-10, and 25-19.
The senior spikers, meanwhile, fell to 0-3 on the season after losing 3-2 in a see-saw affair yesterday in Kenora.
The teams split the first two sets, with the Broncos taking the opener 25-23 before the Muskies battled back with a narrow 26-24 win.
Kenora easily won the third set 25-10 but with their backs to the wall, the black-and-gold pulled out a 25-18 victory to force the fifth-and-deciding set, which the host Broncos won 15-6 to take the match.
In basketball action yesterday, the Muskie junior boys rallied from a halftime deficit to tie the game at 34-34 with three minutes to go.
But the host Broncos prevailed 36-34 to leave weren’t able to do any better as the Broncos narrowly edged the Muskies by a final of 36-34, which leaves the black-and-gold with an 0-3 mark in NorWOSSA play.
And an 18-point performance by Anwar Cheblaoui couldn’t push the senior boys’ team to a win over Kenora. They fell 57-43 to also leave them winless on the season.
The Muskies will have a chance to improve their records here next Tuesday when the Dryden Eagles come to town.
The senior boys (large gym) and junior girls (small gym) will get things started at noon, immediately followed by the matches involving the junior boys and senior girls.
