It was a great day on the trails for the Muskie Nordic skiing team last Wednesday in Kenora.

The nine-member contingent all clocked impressive times at the Mount Evergreen Classic, which was the first race of the NorWOSSA season.

Emma Toriseva and Kayli Machura finished 1-2 in the junior girls' division with times of 20:09 and 21:18, respectively.

Landon Okell and Benjamin Norlock each scored twice to pace the Red Lake Gladiators to a 7-1 romp over the Lake of the Woods Bears here Sunday afternoon to claim the title of the Fort Frances Minor Hockey Association's annual Bantam 'A' tournament.

After a mostly back-and-forth first period, the Gladitors struck three times within the last five minutes to grab a 3-0 lead.
