Blue Knights romp over Royals

Vaughan Wilson and Jaxon Calder both homered to pace the Barwick Blue Knights to a 15-2 romp over the Rainy River Royals in Rainy River District Fastball League action on Tuesday night.

Tanner Smith garnered the pitching win for the Blue Knights (10-4) over Myron Armstrong of the Royals (7-5).

Stock cars, go-karts washed out

Borderland Racing Association and Borderland Kart Racing action were both a no go over the weekend.

Heavy rainfall last week caused the infield of the Emo Speedway to take on too much water and it couldn't be drained quick enough in order for the races to go ahead.

But despite that, local racers were still able to get into races at other speedways over the weekend.

The Angels' ace did what she needed to on the mound and clubbed a pair of homers—including a grand slam—to pace her team to a 15-11 win over the Red Gut Babes in Rainy River District Women's Fastball League action on Monday night at the St. Francis Sports Field.

Corrections

In a story about Fort Frances Sports Hall of Fame inductee Barney Maher in last week's Times, Maher's wife was incorrectly identified as Barb.

Maher's wife was in fact named Lois.

In a second correction, “Castin' for Cash” champions Joel Pagnac and Larry Foss hauled in 13.59 pounds on Day 2, not 12.79 pounds as reported in last week's Times.
