Senior girls lone winners


One unbeaten team kept cruising along.
The other one had its plans for perfection derailed.
The Muskie senior girls’ basketball team boosted its NorWOSSA winning streak to 17 games with a 49-13 rout of the Dryden Eagles here yesterday.
Fort High (5-0) led 26-5 at the half, with their suffocating defence creating turnovers time and again that led to several easy lay-ups at the other end.
Cassandra Moffitt had a game-high 13 points for the Muskies while Hannah McLeod and Sierra Cousineau each netted eight.
The drive for five did not work out for the Muskie senior boys’ volleyball team, though.
They lost a hard-fought 3-2 battle (set scores unavailable at press time) to fall to 4-1 on the season.
Dryden improved to 3-2 to pull within one game of Fort High for first place.
Both Muskie junior teams also had a tough time yesterday.
The junior girls’ basketball crew (1-4) hung tough in the first half against undefeated Dryden (5-0), trailing only 15-11 with five minutes left before halftime.
But it was all Eagles from there, who finished the game on a 23-4 run, including a shutout in the fourth quarter, en route to a 38-15 victory.
Abby Sanders had five points to pace the Muskies while Sarah Vandermeer added four.
And in junior boys’ volleyball, Fort High (2-3) was swept 3-0 by the Eagles (5-0).
The senior Muskie spikers next head to Dryden for a tournament this weekend.
The next home games for the four court squads will be their regular-season finales Oct. 30 against the Kenora Broncos, with action beginning at noon.
