Lucas ended up registering a goal and an assist in that one after having notched a pair of markers in the Lakers' 5-2 win over the Minnesota Iron Rangers the previous night in Hoyt Lakes.

The return of colder weather to Borderland also has brought with it the return of minor hockey tournaments. It was a tight battle on the ice between the Emo Express Green and the Westend Bruins during Emo's 4-1 win yesterday in the gold-medal game of the Fort Frances Minor Hockey Association's annual PeeWee 'A' tournament at the Ice For Kids Arena.
They may have finished with the same record but the Rainy River Owls' senior and junior boys' volleyball teams had much different conclusions in the NorWOSSA 'A' regular-season finale last Wednesday afternoon at RRHS.
The Rainy River Owls' junior and senior girls' basketball teams have battled hard and shown good resilience so far this season.
That was exemplified even further in their wins over the visiting Red Lake Rams in the NorWOSSA 'A' regular-season finale last Wednesday afternoon.
The juniors romped to a 46-12 win over the Rams to finish with an unblemished 7-0 record.
Legion Br. #29 president Ray Watson, Legion member Rod Davis, and Mayor Roy Avis held up the poppy flag before raising it ain front of the Civic Centre last on Wednesday. The flag is a symbol of remembrance and recognition for the sacrifices made by those who fought for the country's freedom.
The Muskie football team showed all season a never-say-die, never-give-up attitude—and that was much the same in their semi-final loss to the top-ranked Elmwood Giants last Thursday in Winnipeg.
A fourth-quarter touchdown proved to be the difference as the Giants outlasted the Muskies by a narrow 31-30 margin.
Fort Frances Lakers' forward Brett Hahkala did his best to tip a shot in front of Minnesota Iron Rangers' goalie Nick Corneliusen during the third period of his squad's 4-0 win Friday night at the Ice For Kids Arena. Hahkala scored a second-period goal to help pace the Lakers to their seventh win of the season.
It's been a tale of two different seasons for the Muskie junior and senior boys' volleyball teams, but the latter was hoping that anything could happen in the playoffs.
Both squads hosted NorWOSSA semi-final matches yesterday, with the juniors downing the Kenora Broncos 3-1 while the seniors earned a 3-0 sweep over the Dryden Eagles.
They played all season to earn this shot and they were hoping to make the most of it.
Both the Muskie junior and senior girls' basketball teams capped off impressive regular seasons with wins last Tuesday against the visiting Kenora Broncos—and were excited at the prospect of winning gold at yesterday's NorWOSSA playoffs at Fort High.
The first game action of the season can be unnerving for any team—and the Muskie girls' hockey squad isn't exempt from those feelings.
But any bouts of nervousness quickly faded away over the weekend as the black-and-gold compiled a 2-1 record at the annual Scott Clendenning Memorial Showcase at the Memorial Sports Centre.
It was a nice way for the Muskies to kick things off.
