Lakers blank ’Dogs

Lucky seven?

Try telling that to the Dryden GM Ice Dogs.

Pierce Dushenko made 32 saves for his SIJHL-leading fourth shutout, and even added an assist, as the Fort Frances Lakers blanked host Dryden last night for the second-straight game—this time by a 5-0 margin.

Where’s winter?

It’s already one week into December but it sure doesn’t look like it outside, as can be seen along the riverfront here this morning. Above-average temperatures over the past week have melted the snow that previously had fallen. However, the mild spell is coming to a close, with colder temperatures and a chance of snow on the horizon.

Laker nabs another award

If Nick Minerva keeps this up, he’s going to need a bigger trophy case—possibly one large enough to hold a defenceman-of-the-year award and perhaps even a league MVP.

The Fort Frances Lakers’ defenceman cemented his spot as one of the SIJHL’s elite performers of late with his selection yesterday as the Amyotte’s Awards & Promotions Corp. player-of-the-week.

Lakers romp

Nick Minerva’s offensive break-out apparently has become contagious among his fellow defencemen.

Minerva had five assists to give him eight in the past two games, while Roshen Jaswal notched a hat trick and added a helper, as the Fort Frances Lakers dumped the English River Miners 7-1 on Saturday night in Cochenour.

Muskie boys finish fifth

They lost the wrong game at the wrong time, but it didn’t keep them from ending their weekend on a high note.

Sully Shortreed netted a hat trick to lead the Muskie boys’ hockey team to a 6-3 victory over the Dauphin Clippers yesterday to claim fifth place at the 24-team Victoria Inn High School Hockey Tournament in Brandon, Man.

Spike leaders flawless

On a night with less than a full schedule of games, How I Set Your Mother made sure to get its full allotment of points.

The top team in the Fort Frances Women’s Volleyball League nabbed its first six-point night in three weeks last night to reach 69 for the season.

Muskies win opener

Cooper Witherspoon and Graeme Kitt each scored twice as the Muskies boys’ hockey team opened defence of its title at the Victoria Inn tournament in Brandon, Man. yesterday with a 8-2 romp over the Sanford Collegiate Sabres.

Lakers top Rangers

Nick Minerva is not resting on his laurels.

Two days after being named the SIJHL’s top player for November, the Fort Frances Lakers’ defenceman dished out three assists in a 5-3 win over the host Minnesota Iron Rangers last night.
