"For an opening game, things looked pretty good from front to back and from young to old," said Muskie head coach Shane Beckett.
...
"I like that they applied what we have been working on the last couple of weeks," noted Beckett. "Their movement off the ball, their communication, their triangles off the ball were all good. "Defensively, we worked on being good as the initial defender, and we were good from the Grade 9s up to the Grade 12s," he added. The teams took part in a spontaneous penalty kick shootout after the final whistle for extra practice. "You don't get an opportunity that often to do this when the season isn't on the line," Beckett remarked. "It's good to be able to rehearse it a bit." The Muskies head to Winnipeg for a tournament this weekend, with Fort High in the same pool as the St. John's-Ravenscourt Eagles and St. Paul's Crusaders. "It's a pretty good pool to be in because I think we'll be evenly matched with both teams," Beckett predicted. "The weather the last couple of years has meant we haven't gone," 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.

"Since I've been involved with the program for nearly 10 years, it's the first time we've won at OFSAA and it might be the first time the program has ever done it," enthused Muskie head coach Shane Beckett. "One of the biggest issues we have had when we come down here is that while we say we can win, we don't honestly believe that we can do it," he admitted.
...
"We were flying all over the field," Beckett recalled. "Our game plan of applying high pressure caused their fullbacks and their midfields to cough up a lot of balls, and our defence was playing well in our end, so we spent the majority of the game in their half of the field. "Both of the goals that we scored were kind of sloppy, as one bounced off of a defender and the other was misplayed by the keeper," he noted.
...
"We really called out the boys before the game to go out and play with pride, and they went out and responded to that by playing their hearts out," Beckett said. "They pushed the game to Prince Edward and carried the play for most of the game, and we also out-chanced them for the most part. "But we just couldn't put the ball into the net," he sighed. The Muskies had opened OFSAA play Thursday with a pair of losses-falling 3-0 to the top-ranked Cardinal Carter Cougars in the morning before losing to the St. Mary's Huskies (Toronto) 1-0 that afternoon. "In the first half we were playing right with them [Cardinal Carter], and there were equal opportunities for both sides," Beckett noted. "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," Beckett admitted. "We were pretty flat in the first half against St. Mary's," he continued.
...
While the 1-3 record wasn't quite what the Muskies were hoping for, Beckett feels the team did perform quite well against the top teams in the province. "I think that our defensive systems worked well," he remarked. "And while our place in the pool won't show it, the one-goal games that we lost showed that we aren't as far back to those teams. "Even though we only came back with one win, that is huge for us as it should hopefully get the monkey off our back for the future," he stressed. Although six players from this year's squad (Tim Metke, Gavin Moorhouse, Braedon Keast, Brandon McGinnis, Jason Angus, and Sinclair) will be leaving the program, Beckett also feels the future is looking bright, especially with the performance of some of the younger players at OFSAA.

"And with our Grade 11 players, Scott Parsons played well in net, Colton Craig was electrifying up front, and Lucas Koomans was a dominant force for us," Beckett added.

The Muskies wrapped up play in Pool 'A' this afternoon against the St. Thomas Aquinas Raiders of Oakville (the outcome was not available as of press time) before making the long trek back to Fort Frances. Following a 3-0 setback to the top-ranked Cardinal Carter Cougars (Leamington) in their opening game yesterday morning, the Muskies fell 1-0 to the St. Mary's Huskies (Toronto) that afternoon. "We were pretty flat in the first half, and the goal that they scored came on one of those goalmouth scrambles after the ball slid underneath of [keeper] Scott [Parsons]," Beckett recalled.

"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.
