The Muskie football team is looking like the one to beat this season in the WHSFL’s seven-team Currie Division (‘A’).
A 41-0 crushing of the host Lorette Scorpions on Friday afternoon gave the black-and-gold (3-1) their third-straight win.
The Muskies now sit in a three-way tie atop the division with the St. John’s Tigers and Elmwood Giants, with two games remaining in their regular season.
Muskie quarterback Brady Meeks was outstanding again in Friday’s romp, going seven-for-10 for 130 yards and three touchdowns.
He also picked up 17 yards on three carries.
Cam Bowles, meanwhile, rushed for 160 yards on 12 carries while punching in two touchdowns.
Brett Allan added 132 yards on six carries and a touchdown score.
Riley Argue had five catches for 93 yards while also scoring a touchdown, with Braden Bodnarchuk recording three catches for 56 yards and two scores.
On defence, Colten Allen led the way with nine tackles while also notching two sacks and a forced fumble.
Brett Allan had six tackles, Wyatt Richard had five, and Aaron Scheibler recorded four.
Riley Argue had three tackles while William Richards, Carson Noga, Kaden Kocuiba, and Sheldon Kelly had two each.
Zander Morrison recorded a fumble recovery while Kocuiba forced a safety.
The Muskies next are in action this Thursday (Oct. 4) when they host the Maples Marauders (1-2) at 4 p.m.
Then they’ll cap their regular season by hosting the Tigers (3-1) on Oct. 12 at 4 p.m., which also will be the team’s annual Homecoming Game.
Fort High has the bye in the final week of the regular season.
