Lakers fill void with Bailey

The injury bug has bitten the Fort Frances Lakers of late and on Saturday the team made a move to help lessen the sting.

The Lakers signed defenceman Kiernan Bailey, who will immediately fill a hole on the team's blue-line after Jarrett Blaase suffered an upper-body injury in Friday's 6-2 road win over the Dryden GM Ice Dogs.

Learning hockey

Local girls' hockey players were able to learn and enjoy the sport over the weekend here. The Fort Frances Girls'/Women's Hockey Association hosted an Esso Fun Day program in conjunction with the IIHF's World Girls' Hockey Weekend on Saturday morning at the '52 Canadians Arena that helped to bring the game to girls who may have never played it before.

Going for pass

Muskie defenders Eli Vandermeer (62) and Wyatt Richards (42) closed in as fast as they could to hurry a throw from Tec Voc Hornets' quarterback Brendan Tokarz during the second half of Fort High's 32-0 win in its annual Homecoming game here on Friday afternoon. The Muskie defence has steadily improved all season and was able to keep the Hornets off the board in that one.

Breaking through

Muskie quarterback Brady Meeks looked to have a step on his Tec Voc Hornets' opponent as he tried to rush for a gain during Fort High's 32-0 rout in its annual Homecoming game here on Friday afternoon. Meeks rushed for 90 yards on 11 carries and punched in a touchdown during the lopsided win.

Taken down

Muskie defensive back Dale Berg (49) helped to tackle a Tec Voc Hornet to the ground to limit the opposition's ground game during Fort High's decisive 32-0 win in its annual Homecoming game on Friday afternoon here.


Grace Smith was locked in as she got ready to complete a lay-up opportunity during the second half of the Muskie junior girls' basketball team's 33-16 win over the Kenora Broncos in NorWOSSA action last Wednesday afternoon at Fort High. Smith led all scorers with 10 points in the win.
