Lakers' win streak halted by North Stars

It was good while it lasted.

The Thunder Bay North Stars survived two separate comebacks by the Fort Frances Lakers in escaping with a 5-4 victory Saturday night at the Ice For Kids Arena that snapped the hosts' four-game winning streak.

Thunder Bay jumped out to a quick start—grabbing a 2-0 lead in the first period on goals by Alexander Erwin (9:58) and Turner Santin (15:36).

Beaudry rink's run wraps up

Hailey Beaudry's Northern Ontario rink has seen its run come to end at the Canadian Junior Curling Championships being held in Shawinigan, Que.

The squad, which curls out of the Fort William C.C. in Thunder Bay, fell 6-5 to Alberta this morning to finish with a 3-7 record overall after going winless in the four-game championship round.

Driving the lane

Senior Muskie Cole Kowalski looked to drive his way to the hoop during Fort High's 78-69 loss to the visiting Dryden Eagles in NorWOSSA action Monday afternoon. Kowalski poured in 14 points for the black-and-gold but it wasn't enough as they saw their league record fall to 2-3. The junior squad had much better success, though, routing the Eagles 61-15 to improve to 4-1 in league play.

Woodland back with Lakehead coaching staff

Former Muskie Evan Woodland once again will be involved with the game he loves.

The Lakehead University men's basketball team announced earlier this month that Woodland would be joining its staff as an assistant coach.

Joining Woodland on head coach Ryan Thomson's staff will be Matt Erdman, also as an assistant, and Jamie Searle, who will be in charge of player development.

Stick check

Neebing Hawks' defenceman Keaton Cristofaro tried his best to knock the puck away from Noah McPherson of the Fort Frances Canadians during his team's 3-1 win in Sunday's final of the annual PeeWee 'AA' tournament held here. McPherson scored the Canadians' lone goal as they settled for a silver medal.

Standing tall

Junior Muskie Grace Petsnick looked to tip the ball over the net during Fort High's straight-sets victory (26-24, 25-15, and 25-23) versus the visiting Dryden Eagles in NorWOSSA action Monday afternoon. The squad improved their league record to 4-1 with the win.
