The Fort Frances Muskies are this year’s NWOSSA boys’ curling champs.

The Jackson Marchant skipped rink defeated Kenora’s Beaver Brae Broncos, 10-5, in a tiebreaker to decide the championship at the Fort Frances Curling Club Tuesday afternoon.

The win propels the team to the all-Ontario provincial championship in North Bay later this month.

The Muskies lost to Michipicoten, 8-5, in their final round-robin game Tuesday morning, while the Broncos defeated Thunder Bay’s Superior Collegiate, 9-2, to leave the NorWOSSA entrants with identical 4-1 records and forcing the one-game showdown to decide the championship.

The Muskies beat the Broncos three games to one in the NorWOSSA championship and 7-6 in their NWOSSA opener on Sunday.

In the other boys’ game played in the morning draw, Hammarskjold got by Lake Superior High School from Terrace Bay 4-3.

St. Patrick High School from Thunder Bay defeated Red Lake 5-2 to clinch the girls’ championship, finishing with a perfect 5-0 record. They will represent northwestern Ontario at the OFSSA championship.

St. Ignatius High School, runners-up in the SSSAA championship, finished second with a record of 4-1.

The Fort Frances Muskies were edged 7-6 by Geraldton to finish with a 2-3 record.

Red Lake finished with a 1-4 record.
