Norskies hold off Lakers

A Jake Eischen power-play goal with just under six minutes to go proved to be the game-winner as the Thief River Falls Norskies held off a late Fort Frances Lakers' rally in a 5-3 win last night at the Ralph Engelstad Arena.

The Norskies came out strong, grabbing a 2-0 lead after the first period on goals by Alec Severson and Tate Steffan.

Lakers lose in return

Malcolm Huemmert scored twice and added an assist to help the Dryden GM Ice Dogs to a 6-1 victory over the visiting Fort Frances Lakers on Saturday night in both teams' return from the SIJHL's holiday break.

Dryden wasted little time getting going as Rayman Bassi opened the scoring just 10 seconds into the game.

Milk Calendars available online

The Dairy Farmers of Ontario's Milk Calendar, which for years had been available to Ontario residents as an insert in the Fort Frances Times and other newspapers, will not be distributed that way this year.

But there's still a way for fans of the popular calendar to get their hands on it.
