Girls’ hockey scores

Life has been busy both at home and on the road for various teams in the Fort Frances Girls’/Women’s Hockey Association of late.

The Fort Frances AtoMC Icebergs and the Fort Frances Tim Hortons Bruins both participated in a tournament in Kenora on Nov. 27-29, with the Icebergs coming away with the bronze medal.

The Bruins, meanwhile, latched onto fifth place.

‘Team Black’ widens lead

The leadership of the Fort Frances Men’s Basketball League is “back in black.”

Sam Soderman netted 27 points to lead Team Black to a 90-77 victory over Team Red in action Tuesday night at J.W. Walker School.

John Sivonen had a game-high 32 for Team Red.

With the win, Team Black (2-0) upped its lead atop the three-team league.

Muskie girls split

The train was coming down the tracks straight for the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints, with a black-and-gold engineer in a bad mood at the controls.

Putting their first NorWOSSA loss of the season the night before behind them, the Muskie girls’ hockey team found an extra gear in delivering a 7-0 thrashing to the Saints last night in Kenora.

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.
