Preseason action

Fort Frances Lakers' defenceman Anthony Antonelli (44) looked to keep a Minnesota Iron Rangers' opponent from scoring during his squad's 6-2 win last night in SIJHL pre-season action at the Ice For Kids Arena here. The Lakers swept the home-and-home series after claiming the opener by a 3-2 margin Saturday night in Hoyt Lakes.

Tackle wheel

Tackling is a crucial skill and it's something that members of the Muskie football team were working on diligently Monday afternoon at their annual training camp at Fort High. The black-and-gold will be polishing up on all their skills the rest of the week and until school starts next Wednesday (Sept. 5) ahead of their WHSFL season-opener against the host Churchill BullDogs on Sept. 7.

Lakers hoping for bounce-back year

The goal is simply this: win another SIJHL championship.

That's the mindset of the Fort Frances Lakers ahead of their annual three-day training camp that opens tomorrow at the Ice For Kids Arena.

After winning three-straight Bill Salonen Cup titles, the Lakers finished in fifth place the last two seasons and were ousted in the semi-finals both times by the Dryden GM Ice Dogs.

Tom's play key in Braves' successful title defence

The Dawson Tigers knew early on that Travis Tom was on his game.

Tom was a wizard on the rubber and with the bat—tossing a no-hitter and clubbing a pair of homers—to help pace his squad to an 11-0 rout of the Dawson Tigers in the deciding game of the Rainy River District Fastball League championship series last Tuesday evening at Couchiching.
