Lakers fall to Miners

A three-goal outburst in the first period ultimately was the Fort Frances Lakers' undoing in a 5-2 loss to the English River Miners on Saturday night at the Ice For Kids Arena.

Arena to trim hours on weekend

The Memorial Sports Centre won't be open quite as late in the evening on Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays this spring.

This first was done last year as a cost-saving measure.
