‘Warm wishes’ redux

Remember the Tim Hortons’ “Warm Wishes” commercial from a year ago? Some of that sense of wonder is back with recent evidence of “yarn bombing” in downtown Fort Frances and other parts of town, including a bench on the waterfront. Several local people agreed to put up the yarn, which is the same as that used in last year’s commercial.

Spikers break for holidays

It was a makeup night but Mary Kay was nowhere to be found.

The Fort Frances Women’s Volleyball League spent its last evening of action before its two-week holiday break getting caught up on games previously postponed.

How I Set Your Mother continues to rule the roost with 69 points, with That’s What She Set not far off the pace in second (63).

Leaders win pair

Josh Mastin has some impressive net gains Tuesday night.

He was a point-producing machine in leading Team Black (4-0) to a pair of wins in Fort Frances Men’s Basketball League action at J.W. Walker School.

Mastin lit up Team White for a season-high 60 points in a 139-67 rout in the opening game of the night.

Dustin Mowe had 32 points for Team White (1-3).

Legal Eagles come up short

The Fort Frances Calder Legal Eagles couldn’t quite find an effective flight path.

The local Atom ‘AA’ girls’ hockey team went 0-3-1 at a tournament in Thunder Bay over the weekend.

The Eagles opened play with a 4-2 loss to the Thunder Bay Fury, with Eva Gerstner and Kassidy Gurniak getting the goals.

Muskies return with split

The basketball magic still was working but the volleyball illusionists ran out of tricks in NorWOSSA action Tuesday in Dryden.

The Muskie boys’ basketball squads held up their end of the bargain, beginning with the junior boys’ 70-27 rout of the host Eagles.

Aaron Bujold once again had a game-high 30 points for Fort High (2-0) while Sekina Scheibler added 16.

Snow nixes games

Not even Canada’s national on-ice passion could overcome the fury of the recently-reawakened Old Man Winter.

The two-game NorWOSSA showdown here between the Muskie girls’ hockey team and the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints (Kenora), scheduled for last night and this afternoon, was postponed due to yesterday’s snowstorm.

A make-up date has yet to be announced.

Laker splits award

This time, Pierce Dushenko will have to share the throne with another masked man.

The Fort Frances Lakers’ goalie yesterday was named co-winner of the Amyotte’s Awards & Promotions Corp. player-of-the-week honours with Dryden GM Ice Dogs’ netminder Paul Laferriere.
