Lakers hoping to right the ship

The Fort Frances Lakers are mired in a five-game losing streak but head coach and general manager Wayne Strachan still feels optimistic the team can snap out of its slump.

Strachan made a number of transactions on Friday to help improve the squad, acquiring forwards Adam Withers from the Waywayseecappo Wolverines (MJHL) and Christian Ward from the Oklahoma City Blazers (WSHL).

Wrestling practice

Members of the Mighty Mustang wrestling program are hard at work learning the basics of the sport to get better prepared for the upcoming season, including this pair engaged in a drill during practice last Wednesday at the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School gym in International Falls.

Scheibler rambles to division's top offensive award

While the season may have ended in disappointment for the Muskie football team, its star player left a lasting impression in the eyes of the WHSFL.

Sekina Scheibler was presented with the Elite Performance Center Offensive Player of the Year award for the Andy Currie Division ('A') at the WHSFL's annual awards banquet, which was held last Wednesday in Winnipeg.

Passing across

Muskie defenceman Bryon Stewart looked to make a cross-ice pass to teammate Auston Armstrong during Fort High's 5-1 win over the visiting Kenora Broncos last Tuesday night (Nov. 28). The squad next is off to a weekend tournament in Brandon, Man.

From the corner

Fort Frances Lakers' forward Carter Chorney looked to fire a sharp-angled shot from the corner past Thief River Falls Norskies' goalie Bailey Schmitz during the third period of the host team's 7-3 loss here Friday night. Chorney did notch a goal but it wasn't enough as the Lakers suffered their fifth-straight loss.

Lakers fall to Norskies

The Thief River Falls Norskies showed Friday night just why they are the best team in the SIJHL.

Parker Simonson and Boe Bjore each netted a pair of goals as the Norskies skated to a 7-3 win over the Fort Frances Lakers at the Ice For Kids Arena.

The loss was the Lakers' fifth in a row.
