Out of the bag

Bill Godin of Devlin held the bag open while his partner, Nolan Mann of Fort Frances, returned a walleye to it that they had caught as part of their 6.73-pound Day 2 haul during the top 10 boat parade on Saturday afternoon at the Emo-La Vallee Arena. The duo finished third at the 18th-annual Emo Walleye Classic with a two-day total of 14.53 pounds.

Boys out to capture ninth-straight title

Another successful regular season is officially in the books and the Muskie boys' soccer team is one step closer to their ultimate goal.

The conditions were poor and they definitely didn't play their best brand of soccer, but the black-and-gold still managed to earn a win and a draw in their final league games last Wednesday in Kenora against the host Broncos and Dryden Eagles.

EWC champs

Dan Pollard hoisted up a walleye that was part of he and his son Josh's 8.91-pound Day 2 haul that made them the champs of the 18th-annual Emo Walleye Classic over the weekend. After back-to-back years of finishing as the runners-up to Les Morrison and Oliver Gibbins, the Pollards topped the 30-team field this year with a two-day haul of 15.69 pounds.

Anything can happen in the playoffs and both the Rainy River Owls' girls' and boys' soccer teams hope things will land in their favour this week.
