Lakers show progression on road trip

Head coach Wayne Strachan saw progression as he assessed the Fort Frances Lakers' recent three-game road trip in which the team went 1-1-1.

After opening with a 6-2 loss to the Dryden GM Ice Dogs back on Oct. 7, the Lakers suffered a 4-3 overtime loss to the Thunder Bay North Stars last Wednesday before doubling the Minnesota Iron Rangers 6-3 this past Saturday night.

During a team supper at the beginning of the season, the Muskie junior boys' volleyball squad set a goal of finishing atop the NorWOSSA standings.

The black-and-gold is well on its way to accomplishing that feat with three matches left in the regular season.

The juniors improved to 4-1 with a 3-1 win over the host Kenora Broncos last Wednesday afternoon.

The Muskie football team still has one game remaining in its regular-season schedule.

But the black-and-gold will have a playoff mentality when they face the St. John's Tigers this Friday in Winnipeg.

“Our mindset going into this finale is that [the] playoffs start now,” head coach Mike Cuzzolino said in an e-mailed response to the Times.

Square work nearly complete

The Rainy Lake Square is much closer to completion, with the hope it can be opened to the public by the end of next week.

As of yesterday, the stage decking and the paving stone work all were complete, and all of the steel structures are installed and complete, Operations and Facilities manager Travis Rob told council last night.
