Muskies roll to third straight win


The good times keep on rolling for the Muskie football team.
The Muskies scored two touchdowns in the third quarter en route to routing the Tec Voc Hornets 32-0 on Friday afternoon in their annual Winnipeg High school Football League Homecoming game at Fort High.
It was the third straight win for the black-and-gold, who improved to 3-1 in the six-team Currie Division (‘A’).
After a scoreless first quarter, Muskie wide receiver Carson Noga found some room on a reverse play and rambled one into the end zone from 20 yards out to open the scoring early in the second (the extra point was good).
Kicker Sean Huziak then punted home a long single through the Hornets’ (1-3) end zone and the Muskies also got a point off a touchback to carry a 9-0 lead into halftime.
In the third, Muskie quarterback Brady Meeks connected with wide receiver William Richards in the end zone on a 16-yard score to extend it to 16-0 (the extra point was good).
Meeks found receiver Ayden Gushulak-Kelly later in the frame for another major in the end zone while Fort High also got another touchback to carry a commanding 24-0 lead into the fourth.
The Muskies then put nine points on the board in final frame to seal the win, which was capped off by a roughly 30-yard rushing touchdown by Meeks.
Meeks finished the game going 12 of 16 for 206 yards and two touchdowns. He also picked up 90 yards on 11 carries with another TD.
Defensively, Jacob Argue and Colten Allen led the way with three tackles each. Noga had one tackle and a forced fumble.
Huziak went a perfect 4 of 4 on extra-points while also picking up 100 yards on three punts.
The Muskies will resume WHSFL action on Thursday when they head to Winnipeg to take on the Maples Marauders (2-1), with second place in the division on the line.
Fort High then will conclude the regular season on Oct. 17 on the road against the last-place Neelin Spartans (0-4).
