Muskie girls trade wins

When the hometown head coach is feeling remorseful for the job done by the men in stripes, it’s a good sign the officials didn’t have their finest hour.

The Muskie girls’ hockey team ran into what it and its opponent thought was some shoddy refereeing in a 4-3 loss Saturday to the Duluth Marshall Hilltoppers in the second of a two-game pre-season series there.

Lakers up to No. 4

The Fort Frances Lakers have inched a little closer to the peak of the national Junior ‘A’ mountain.

The Lakers (16-2) hold a seven-point lead over the Dryden GM Ice Dogs (11-4-1-2) for first place in the SIJHL.

Quartet nab six points

Rolling sevens is a sign of good luck at the craps tables.

But four teams in the Fort Frances Women’s Volleyball League were content with hitting sixes last night during matches at Fort High and St. Michael’s School.

The quartet that garnered the maximum half-dozen points available included league-leading How I Set Your Mother, who boosted their league-leading total to 53.
