Double wall

Joe Hardy (#6) and Jaxon Gartzke (#17) looked to combine to form a stellar wall on a block during the Muskie junior boys' volleyball team's 3-1 win over the Dryden Eagles in the NorWOSSA final last Tuesday afternoon at Fort High. That good defence was key after the Muskies had dropped the first set but then rallied back to snatch gold away from the Eagles.

Sharp angle

Fort Frances Lakers' captain Nick Lucas looked to fire a shot from a sharp angle upstairs on Thief River Falls Norskies' goalie Fletcher Bolda during his squad's 6-4 win here Saturday night. 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.

Hockey tourney

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.

Owls' hoops squads eager to start playoffs

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.

Poppy flag

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.

Tip

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.

Spiker squads set for playoffs

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.
