Muskie boys looking to put tough weekend into rearview mirror

Sometimes the best thing to do is just move one.

After the weekend they had, that's probably the best course of action for the Muskie boys' hockey team.

The black-and-gold went 1-0-1 in Pool 'B' play before losing both playoff games in the Boston Pizza Division at the annual Piper Classic Tournament of Champions in Winnipeg held Friday through Sunday.

'Poker run' ready to go

If you've been itching to get out on the snowmobile trails, this weekend is a great time to do it.

The Borderland Snowmobile Club will be holding its first “poker run” of the season on Saturday from Fort Frances to Emo.

Registration is from 10:30-11:30 a.m. at the Fort Frances groomer shack on Eighth Street.

On the brooms

The Muskies compiled a 2-2 record over the two-day event.

Curling delivery

Ashley Payne was dialed in as she prepared to throw a rock during the Muskie girls' curling rink's 9-5 win over the Rainy River Owls on Monday afternoon at the NorWOSSA qualifier at the Fort Frances Curling Club. The black-and-gold topped the field with a perfect 4-0 record. See story, more photos on B2.
