Centra reclaims top spot

It would be easier to predict the weather in Fort Frances a month from now than to score against Centra Pipelines at the moment.

Max Williams had the only goal of the game as Centra blanked CJ Contracting 1-0 in Borderland Soccer League men's division action Tuesday night.

Lady Raiders rally for win

The play started with a groan and ended with a group hug.

Manitou romps over Pharmasave

James Pavier became bored with stopping goals so he spent the second half scoring them.

After a flawless first half between the pipes, Pavier left the net and scored twice as Manitou Forest Products blanked Pharmasave 6-0 in Borderland Soccer League men's division action Monday night.

Also scoring twice was Chris Sinclair, whose four total tallies leads the league.
