IP action

Erika Morrison of the FFGWHA Timbits and Jesse Calder of the Fort Frances Kings were locked in a race for a loose puck and did their best to get to it first during the Fort Frances Minor Hockey Association's annual IP1 Jamboree on Saturday afternoon at the Ice For Kids Arena. A total of 11 teams took part in the event, which places all the emphasis on having fun and none on the scoreboard.

Knocked off puck

Cole Magill was caught up in a battle for the loose puck as he tried to keep his balance and fend off Sioux Lookout Warriors' defenceman Kendall Schulz during the Muskie boys' hockey team's 3-1 win in the opener of their best-of-three NorWOSSA final last Wednesday night at the Ice For Kids Arena. Magill tallied an empty-netter late in that one to seal the win.
