Staff

The Muskie boys’ hockey team is off to flying start at the annual John Taylor Collegiate Piper hockey tournament in Winnipeg.
The black-and-gold advanced to the championship bracket with a 4-1 win over Springfield Collegiate this morning, getting a natural hat-trick from Blake Wepruk to start the game.
Matt DePiero connected shorthanded off a pass from Ryan Shortreed to round out the scoring.
Fort High had opened the tournament yesterday with a narrow 5-4 victory over Selkirk.
The Muskies next play either today at 5 p.m. or tomorrow at 10 a.m., depending on how the bracket shapes up.
