The Cinderella run by the Muskie senior girls’ basketball team ended over weekend in Thunder Bay as the NorWOSSA champs were swept by the St. Ignatius Falcons in the best-of-three NWOSSAA playoffs.
The host Falcons opened with a 51-19 win Friday afternoon.
Then they sealed the championship—and a trip to the OFSAA ‘AA’ showdown in Sault Ste. Marie this weekend—with a convincing 61-22 triumph Saturday morning.
The black-and-gold, who finished the NorWOSSA regular season in third place with a 2-6 record, upset both the Kenora Broncos and Dryden Eagles back on Nov. 8 to capture their first league crown since 2009.
