Team Black primed

It’s been quite a chore for anyone else to beat Team Black in the Fort Frances Men’s Basketball League this season.

Trying to do it when one has just played a down-to-the-wire barnburner only makes it tougher.

Kellar nets six goals

With over a month passing between games, Sara Kellar had plenty of pent-up energy to unleash—not to mention a stockpile of super shots.
