Discipline key for Muskie boys

The Muskie boys' hockey team knows it will have to be a lot more disciplined moving forward.

For now, though, the squad is going to enjoy advancing to another league final.

Matt Spence scored twice to pace the Muskies to a narrow 5-4 win over the fourth-place Saint Thomas Aquinas Saints in Kenora in Game 2 of the best-of-three NorWOSSA semi-final series Thursday afternoon.
