McGillis speaking

Former OHL goalie Brock McGillis was at the Townshend Theatre last Wednesay to share with Fort High students his struggles of being a closeted pro athlete, as well as to share his empowering message of self-love and inclusion while also aiming to change the perceptions of LGBTQ athletes and individuals. McGillis is the first hockey player to come out publicly as being gay.

Long shot

Arctic Cat's Joey Theriault tried a long three-point attempt during his team's 54-42 loss to the Revco Renegades in Fort Frances Men's Basketball League action last Tuesday night at Fort High. The league runs every Tuesday, with action beginning at 6:40 p.m.

Skating around

Fort Frances Lakers' forward Ian Tookenay looked to dance his way around Thief River Falls Norskies' defenceman Jake Eischen for a scoring chance during Friday night's 5-1 loss at the Ice For Kids Arena. The Lakers now have lost seven-straight games to remain in fifth place in the six-team SIJHL.

Bantam Leafs nab title

It was a perfect weekend for the Bantam Leafs of the Fort Frances Girls'/Women's Hockey Association.

The squad won all three of its games, then earned a 3-2 victory over East Grand Forks in the championship game to claim the Grand Forks 15U tourney title.

Issy Taylor scored the first and third goals of the game while Tatum Glowasky notched the second one.

Strong forecheck

Muskie captain Annalise (“CC”) Hayes looked to keep Payton Boyko of the Dryden Eagles hemmed in her own zone during third-period action of Fort High's 5-2 win last night at the Emo/La Vallee Community Centre. Hayes notched a goal to help lead the Muskies (5-0-1) to their fifth win of the NorWOSSA regular season.

Muskie girls take revenge on Eagles

Revenge is a dish best served in Emo.

A four-goal first period sparked the Muskie girls' hockey team (5-0-1) to a 5-2 win over the Dryden Eagles last night at the Emo/La Vallee Community Centre.

Last Tuesday, it was the host Eagles who emerged with a 4-3 overtime win, but the Muskies made sure to flip the script in the teams' second meeting of the NorWOSSA regular season.
