Muskies shut out to end season


The Fort High Muskies football team certainly ran into a team eager to prove it had earned its top-seeded ranking.
The black-and-gold ran into a Dakota Lancers locomotive in Winnipeg on Friday afternoon, as the Lancers advanced to the WHSFL semifinals with a 66-0 win over the Muskies.
Dakota came out quickly, notching a touchdown on its first drive and taking a 14-0 lead just over three minutes into the game.
The Lancers eventually led 36-0 at the half before tacking on another 30 points in the second half.
The Muskies were also unable to get much going offensively, regularly going two-and-out and keeping punter Britton Green busy.
Fort High was able to stay positive in the face of a tough defeat, vociferously cheering on the defence to stop the hard-charging Lancer attack late in the fourth.
And when the game was over, the Muskies raised their helmets together and repeated its cheer of “hard work” in full throat.
Dakota, who finished the season at 7-0, moves on to face the Elmwood Giants (3-3-1 in the regular season).
Stonewall (5-2) will face Daniel McIntyre (4-3) in the other semifinal.
