Muskies open with draw

The Muskie boys' soccer team is off to a nice start at the OFSAA 'AA' championships in Windsor.

Fort High kicked off action in Pool 'B' at the 20-team tournament with a 2-2 draw against Father Bressani CHS (YRAA) this morning.

Cam Lidkea and James Gushulak netted the goals for the black-and-gold.

Outage planned

More than 1,060 district Hydro One customers will be affected by a scheduled power outage this Sunday (June 10), in addition to all Fort Frances Power Corp. customers in the Town of Fort Frances.

Charges laid in fatality

Charges have been laid in connection to a fatal crash that occurred two years ago in Chapple Township.

A 28-year-old Fort Frances woman was charged with causing death by criminal negligence, dangerous operation of a vehicle causing death, and impaired operation of a vehicle causing death.

Outage in district

Some Hydro One customers in the west end of Rainy River District suffered an unexpected power outage yesterday afternoon.

Hydro One reported crews had to cut power in order to make repairs to a wire burning on a crossarm.

A total of 718 customers in Lake of the Woods, Pratt, Big Island FN, Morson, Sutherland, and Big Grassy River FN were without power from about 1:45-3 p.m.

Muskies champs again

Death, taxes, and the Muskie boys' soccer team winning the championship.

Those seemingly are the only certainties in life.

The Muskies netted a pair of goals in the second half as they nabbed their eighth-straight league title with a 2-0 shutout of the visiting Kenora Broncos in the NorWOSSA final yesterday afternoon.

Junior athletes claim crown

The Muskie track-and-field team claimed its first-ever junior title at the NWOSSAA championships that ran Tuesday and Wednesday in Thunder Bay.

Eleven different Muskies also qualified for the all-Ontarios set for June 7-9 in Toronto, the most Fort High has ever sent.

Tori Toriseva won the junior girls' 300m race while Alacea Yerxa nabbed bronze in the 1,500m.
