Quick start by Norskies sinks Lakers

The Fort Frances Lakers knew it wasn't going to be their night early on in the first period.

That was made quite evident to them by the front-running Thief River Falls Norskies, who stormed out to an early four-goal lead en route to a 7-1 romp Tuesday night at the Ice For Kids Arena.

It was the Lakers' second-straight loss following a season-high four-game winning streak.

Lifting shot

Evan Wright of the Causeway Cougars fired a shot on Fort Frances Rainy Lake Attack goalie Ashytn Thomson during his team's 3-1 win in Sunday's final of the Fort Frances Minor Hockey Association's annual Atom 'A' tournament. Wright scored twice to lead the Cougars to the gold medal, who won all six of their games over the weekend.

Puck battle

Fort Frances Lakers' forward Nick Lucas jostled for position with Thunder Bay North Stars' defenceman Kyle Auger during the third period of his team's 5-4 loss Saturday night at the Ice For Kids Arena. The Lakers saw their season-high four-game winning streak come to an end with the loss.
