"In the first half, we were playing right with them and there were equal opportunities for both sides," noted Muskie head coach Shane Beckett. "We had a little bit of a breakdown at the start of the second half on the first goal they scored, and you can't have any breakdowns against a team like them if you want to win," he stressed. "Their second goal came after we had a mistimed kick that they were able to take control of and while we pushed hard and had a lot of chances to score, we lacked some polish around the goal. "While we're disappointed that we didn't win," said Beckett. "On the positive side, we know that we can play with the teams here as they [Cardinal Carter] were the top-seeded team coming in," he added.

"After we scored, you could feel it on the bench that finally we were clicking and finally, all the things we've been saying are being done and it's happening," noted Muskie offensive co-ordinator Shane Beckett.
"We used to think he was busy before and people would tell us, ‘Hey, you've got to have more to the offence than just Terry Carmody,' and that's when he had 19 carries," noted Beckett.
"It was a TSN turning points for sure because they started moving the ball to that side, and we didn't have our main punter out there so they're getting the ball back with good field position," said Beckett.
"We had our foot on their throat and we let it off," said Beckett noted.
The Hornets, by this time, were taking advantage of Wepruk's dismissal and running it effectively-and found themselves inside the Muskies' 10-yard line with five seconds to go.
"They're going for the end zone," said Beckett.
That they did.And when the ball touched the hands of the Hornets' receiver, a couple of Muskie defenders pounced on him to force the ball loose.But . . . a flag.
"They find an open man who gets his hands on the football and we have two guys collide on the receiver to try and break up the pass, and it was called pass interference," Beckett said of the questionable call.
But did the receiver touch the ball first before being tackled by the Muskie defenders, which is a legal play?
"We were across the field so it's a tough vantage point," replied Beckett, trying to tip-toe around the question.
But you know what you saw?
"I think he had touched the ball first.That's the referee's call and he made the call he did," Beckett said.
Beckett said the whole thing "felt like something out of a movie."
"You start to feel suffocated," agreed Beckett.
"There's always that pit feeling in your stomach that it can't go your way anytime you have to depend on somebody else," said Beckett.
The Muskies now will play the Oak Park Raiders, a perennial power in the league.They are 5-1 in the Kas Vidruk Division and easily handled the Kelvin Clippers by a score of 59-0 last Friday.
So the Raiders, who beat the Muskies 46-7 when they faced each other last season, no doubt will come into the game confident.And, in fact, Beckett is counting on the Raiders to take them for granted-hopefully.
"Terry [Carmody] came off [after the first touchdown] and he wasn't even happy," said Beckett.

"I'm still trying to absorb everything all in right now as I have such a mix of emotions," head coach Shane Beckett enthused afterwards.

"It was a neat experience for the kids, especially with the fact that we playing under the lights," noted Muskie assistant coach Shane Beckett. "The stadium was set up pretty good with the temporary lights that they had, and despite the poor weather conditions, they got a good crowd on hand and they got to see a real good show," he added. It was a back-and-forth affair throughout the contest, with the Eagles holding a 17-14 lead with just over five minutes to go in the fourth quarter and the Muskies finding themselves with a third down-and-eight situation near midfield. "We started to have some problems moving the football near the end of the third quarter, and it continued on into the fourth quarter when we got into that part of the game," Beckett recalled. "On that third-and-eight play, we called a fake punt and it worked like a charm as Aaron Kellar ran for about 35 yards on that play," he said. "And the guys were able to pound the ball up the middle, with Colton Craig scoring the go-ahead touchdown with about three-and-a-half minutes to go. "That put us up 20-17 at that point, and to be able to tack on that extra point was huge as that put Dryden down by four points," Beckett stressed. With a lot of time to work with, Dryden marched towards the red zone-and nearly had quarterback Ryan Martel score on a scramble with a little over a minute to go. That set the stage for a dramatic third-and-goal play with just 42 seconds on the clock. "Their quarterback was scrambling again because of the pressure by our linebackers, and he threw the ball up towards the end zone," Beckett explained. "But Braden Webb was right there to make his second pick of the game and he was able to run the ball out of the end zone, which allowed us to do a couple of kneel-downs and celebrate a victory." Craig led the Muskies on offence, finding the end zone on three separate occasions. "I said to him during the game that it looked like he was running angry at times," Beckett noted. "He was going after guys all the time and he wasn't shying away from any contact, and he was just doing some good, hard running. "One of the things that we preach to our guys is to be the hammer and not the nail, and he was certainly doing that on Friday," Beckett noted. It's often said that any football game is won by the work in the trenches, and Beckett also was quick to point out the play of both the offensive and the defensive lines was key to the victory. "The offensive line was making holes for Colton and Harley [Mainville] to run through and our defensive line was plugging up the holes to prevent their running backs from getting major yardage," Beckett said. "One guy who had a great game and doesn't get noticed all that often was our left defensive end Justin Whitecrow. "He was a silent hero for us out there by forcing their running backs to the inside and into traffic," Beckett lauded. The black-and-gold will look to continue their momentum tomorrow afternoon in Winnipeg when they take on the St. John's Tigers (1-5) in a game that will help determine who the Muskies will face in the quarter-finals next week. "If we get a win there, along with a Dryden loss [to St. Norbert today], that would put us against St. Norbert in the first round, which would be a better match-up for us than facing a team like Sisler or Daniel Mac," Beckett stressed. "Right now we have two wins on the season, and since I've been here at the school, I haven't seen a team with two wins, which is great for the program," he added.

Joseph's] were able to capitalize on their chances and we didn't, which has been the story of our week," Muskie coach Shane Beckett lamented from Windsor. "We out-chanced them by about a 10-to-1 margin, but their goalie was able to make four gigantic saves, including one that was right on the goal line," he added. "Then just before the end of the first half, their best player was able to get a chance on net and he scored an absolutely ridiculous goal to give them the lead." Having lost their first two games of the tournament yesterday, Fort High needed to win out on today and also get some help from the other teams in their pool in order to advance to the playoff round. "We needed to have the team from Windsor [Kennedy Clippers] lose both of their games in order to have a shot," Beckett explained. "But they throttled Timmins 6-0, so at that point we knew it was pretty much over," he remarked. After opening play with a 2-1 loss to fifth-ranked St. Paul (Mississauga) yesterday morning, the Muskies were blanked 4-0 that afternoon by the host Clippers, who entered the 20-team tournament as the defending champs. "That was the best team that I ever coached against," Beckett said of the Clippers. "Our guys never gave up and battled right with them for the first 15 minutes," Beckett noted. "But Kennedy was able to figure out our system right after that, and they showed exactly why they are the defending provincial champions." The Muskies at least will look to finish the tournament on a winning note when they will take on Timmins, also winless at 0-3, at 2 p.m. (EDT). "After losing two games we felt we should have won [St. Paul and St. Joseph's], there's a really bad taste in the guys' mouths right now, especially with the senior players," Beckett admitted. "In those games we felt that we were the better team, so if we can continue to play like that, we should be fine against a short-staffed team in the Flames," he reasoned.
