Court teams sweep

The beat goes on.

Four more games between the Muskies and Kenora Broncos yesterday resulted in another four wins for Fort High, which has not lost a NorWOSSA game to the Broncos this school year.

In junior boys’ basketball action, the first-place Muskies (5-0) romped to a 70-33 rout over the host Bronco (1-4).

Aaron Bujold led the attack with a season-high 38 points.

Leaders widen gap

Objects in the rearview mirror of How I Set Your Mother are not closer than they appear.

The Fort Frances Women’s Volleyball League leaders widened the gap over their nearest pursuer with another maximum six-point outing last night to boost their season total to 81 points.

Dustin dynamite for Fury

Whatever plan the Boston Pizza Ball Blasters may have had to stop Bryanna Dustin last night didn’t work.

Dustin netted six goals to power the Fine Foods Fury to an 11-3 romp in the Borderland Women’s Indoor Soccer League action last night at Fort High.

Team Red falls twice

Better ahead than Red.

So went the story of Tuesday night’s doubleheader in the Fort Frances Men’s Basketball League at J.W. Walker, which saw Team Red suffer two losses.

In a hard-fought contest that went down to the wire, Team White held off Team Red 69-64.

Dustin Mowe paced Team White (2-5) with 18 points.

John Sivonen netted a game-high 29 for Team Red (2-5).

Carlson leads Knights

Fort Frances native Megan Carlson had a big hand in helping the Lynn University Fighting Knights capture top team honours at their first-annual Sprint Invitational in Boca Raton, Fla. on Saturday.

With 705 points, the Knights easily outdistanced the second-place East Stroudsberg (Pa.) Warriors, who finished with 473.

Girls’ hockey scores

It was a busy weekend for the Fort Frances Girls’/Women’s Hockey Association both here and out of town.

The Fort Frances Atom ‘AA’ Calder Legal Eagles hung in with the Gillons’ Atoms (FFMHA) before falling 1-0 on Saturday.

Several teams from the FFGWHA then headed to Dryden for the annual Kathy Sanders Memorial tournament.

Bantams take silver in Kenora

The Kenora Thistles once again were a thorn in the side of the Fort Frances Bantam ‘AA’ Canadians.

Jacob Frankcom netted a pair of goals, including the game-winner four minutes into the third period, to lead the host Thistles to a 3-1 win over the Canadians in the final of the ‘AA’ Bantam Challenge Cup on Sunday.

Brady Bodnarchuk netted the Canadians’ lone goal.

Dozens stand for election

Nearly three dozen men and women have been nominated to run for Couchiching chief and council in the Feb. 24 election.

The four nominations for chief include incumbent Sara Mainville, along with Louis “Smokey” Bruyere, Scott McPherson, and Brian Perrault.

Lakers lose again

New blood in the Fort Frances Lakers’ lineup also meant a new outcome—but not the one the squad was hoping for.

Former Laker Ben Smaha scored the game-winner in the third period last night as the host Dryden GM Ice Dogs won 4-2—their first in nine tries this season against Fort Frances.
