Court teams win three

When Gord McCabe's gang found their footwork, it started putting the boot to its opponent.

Grace Petsnick had a game-high 18 points as the Muskie junior girls' basketball team opened the NorWOSSA regular season with a 49-29 victory over the host Kenora Broncos on Tuesday.

“We started slowly and played pretty uninspired defence in the first quarter,” conceded McCabe.

Lakers go winless in pre-season

Any panic buttons in Wayne Strachan's office remain unpushed at the present time.

The head coach and general manager of the Fort Frances Lakers wasn't about to get all worked up over an 0-3-0-1 record in the SIJHL pre-season, which ended with the Lakers dropping both ends of a home-and-home series against the English River Miners over the weekend.

Senior girls finish 1-3

Dan Bird expected scoring to be a sore spot for his team this season.

So far, he looks to be a soothsayer.

The co-coach of the Muskie senior girls' basketball team watched his squad exceed 21 points just once in four games as they went 1-3 to finish tied for fourth with the Churchill Trojans in Pool 'B' of a tournament in Thunder Bay over the weekend.

Junior hoopsters dominate in Dryden

It was all Fort High from the get-go at the four-team round-robin event as the Muskies went 3-0 to capture the title—winning every game by at least 19 points.
