Top shelf shot

Fort Frances Lakers' forward Ian Jarvis blasted the team's lone goal top-shelf past Thief River Falls Norskies' goalie Jackson Nelson during last Tuesday's 7-1 loss at the Ice For Kids Arena. But the Lakers exacted some revenge with a 2-1 shootout win Saturday night at the Ralph Engelstad Arena to snap a three-game losing streak.

Eluding check

Joe Glowack of the International Falls Broncos looked to avoid the oncoming freight train in Muskie forward Jon Busch during his team's 2-1 exhibition win Monday night at the Ice For Kids Arena. The Broncos swept the two-game “Border Battle” series after having won the opener 5-4 in overtime back on Dec. 22 over in the Falls.

Watts bowling

Jeff Watts prepared to throw a ball during the annual Open zone roll-offs Saturday afternoon at Plaza Lanes. The Fort Frances bowler wound up averaging 257 over the 20 games to top the men's division and earn a berth at the provincial championships in Azilda (Sudbury) in March.

Muskies bucked by Broncos

The atmosphere was electric last night at the Ice For Kids Arena but the Muskie boys' hockey team couldn't capitalize on it.

Jr. squad nabs title

It was an impressive weekend for the Muskie junior boys' basketball team in Kenora over the weekend.

The squad won all three of its games en route to the Kenora Invitational Tournament title.

The black-and-gold opened play Friday with a 44-8 romp over Whitefish Bay, who were filling in for Pelican Falls as they couldn't make the trip.

Atom AA action

Dakota Cooper of the Fort Frances Canadians looked to jam one past International Falls Broncos' goalie Caleb Joslyn during the host team's 5-2 win in yesterday's final of the Fort Frances Minor Hockey Association's annual Atom 'AA' tournament. Cooper later notched a goal while Hunter McLean and Landon Hanson each scored twice, with Gage Mitchell earning the win between the pipes.
