Lakers fall to Rangers

The first step on the path to a “three-peat” was more of a stumble for the Fort Frances Lakers.

Kenny Hasbergen notched a pair of goals to pace the Minnesota Iron Rangers to a 3-1 win over the Lakers last night in Hoyt Lakes in the first SIJHL pre-season game for both squads.

Hasbergen scored the lone goal of the first period.

Peterson duo takes Falls title

Blood is thicker than water and it fishes better, too.
