Twisted position

Junior Muskie Grace Kowal had to contort her body a little in order to help return a shot during Fort High's straight-sets win (25-8, 25-11, and 25-9) over the visiting Kenora Broncos last Thursday afternoon. The squad faced those same Broncos today in Kenora, then will wrap up regular-season play tomorrow in Dryden against the Eagles.

Girls hockey

Makayla Gibbs of the Fort Frances Ice Devils looked to clear the puck during her team's 3-1 win over the Fort Frances Heat in yesterday's final of the Fort Frances Girls'/Women's Hockey Association's Novice division tournament. Harmony Yerxa scored all three of the team's goals while goalie Kinsley McCoy earned the win.

Curling bonspiel

Bev Thomson and Joanne Brown got ready to sweep as Deb Cornell threw her rock down the ice Saturday during the men's and ladies' combined bonspiel held at the Fort Frances Curling Club. The trio were part of Nettie Kaufman's rink, who fell in Sunday's 'C' final to Tirzah Keffer.

Loppet skier

Megan Ross was all smiles as she came to the end of her race during the first-annual Rainy Lake Loppet on Sunday that was hosted by the Rainy Lake Nordic Ski Club at its Rocky Inlet trails and drew 20 skiers aged four-50+. Ross clocked in with a time of 17:31 to finish atop the 5K skate race.

Scoring chance

Noah Loveday of the Fort Frances Lakers looked to fire a shot past Dryden GM Ice Dogs' goalie Landon Pavlisin during last night's 4-3 shootout loss at the SIJHL's annual “Showcase” held at the Ice For Kids Arena. Fort Frances lost both of its games at the event, which saw all six SIJHL teams play two games apiece over the two days in front of junior, college, and pro scouts.
