Court teams win three

When Gord McCabe's gang found their footwork, it started putting the boot to its opponent.

Grace Petsnick had a game-high 18 points as the Muskie junior girls' basketball team opened the NorWOSSA regular season with a 49-29 victory over the host Kenora Broncos on Tuesday.

“We started slowly and played pretty uninspired defence in the first quarter,” conceded McCabe.

More pasta chefs needed

The Fort Frances Chamber of Commerce is looking for more chefs to participate in “Pasta Palooza,” which is scheduled to take place next Wednesday (Sept. 27) upstairs at the Memorial Sports Centre.

Four teams have been confirmed for the event, with a possible fifth one pending, Chamber executive director Jennifer Soderholm said yesterday.

Muskie boys go unbeaten

Trips to Thunder Bay in recent pre-seasons have not exactly been kind to the Muskie boys' hockey team.

This past weekend was a definite exception.

The Muskies went undefeated in three outings against the host Thunder Bay Minor Midget 'AA' Kings, collecting two wins and a tie.

Broncos blank Muskies

So much for thoughts of a winning streak for the Muskie football team, at least for now.

Coming off a season-opening victory Sept. 8 that snapped a nearly two-year losing skid in the WHSFL, Fort High fell 36-0 to the Kenora Broncos in its home-opener Friday afternoon.

Junior hoopsters tops

The toughest opponent for the Muskie junior girls' basketball team this NorWOSSA season has been firmly established.

It will be their own overconfidence.

Fort High tore through both their NorWOSSA rivals en route to winning the Dryden Eagles' pre-season tournament with a 3-0 record.

Lakers finish pre-season winless

The Fort Frances Lakers finished their SIJHL pre-season schedule winless after suffering a pair of losses to the English River Miners over the weekend.

Kyle Rosolowski, Ryan Patterson, and Nolan Dawson notched second-period goals Friday night in the Miners' 3-1 win at the Ice For Kids Arena.

Westin Cardwell stopped a penalty shot to earn the victory between the pipes.

Tymkin invited to Stars' camp

A funny thing happened on Cole Tymkin's way back to London—he got detoured through the Lone Star state.

The 18-year-old Fort Frances resident, originally from Rainy River, is in Austin, Tex. today for the opening of training camp with the Dallas Stars after the NHL team yesterday made him one of 62 invitees to the camp.

Muskie lauded

Sekina Scheibler ran all the way to one of the first WHSFL awards of the season.

The Muskie running back was named the Currie Division's offensive player-of-the-week Tuesday following his phenomenal performance in Fort High's 42-18 win Friday over the host Maples Marauders.

Scheibler had 19 carries for 309 yards, averaging more than 16 yards per rush.

Lakers beaten again

The Fort Frances Lakers will be fine with not seeing Clayton Brown for a while.

After scoring a pair of goals here Friday, Brown netted the game-winner on the power play last night in Hoyt Lakes to give the Minnesota Iron Rangers a 3-2 victory and a sweep of the teams' pre-season series.

Terry Fox Run set for Sunday

The weather may be a question mark, but the dedication to stopping cancer for those coming out to the Sorting Gap Marina is unquestionable.

Sunday marks this year's national Terry Fox Run, with the 25th anniversary of the Fort Frances edition set to go with registration at 1 p.m. and then the 5K walk/run at 2 p.m.
