Sinclair breaks out


Katie Sinclair is getting back to her old scoring ways.

The Fort Frances native had a season-high four points to lead the Lakehead Thunderwolves to a 10-3 shellacking of the Wisconsin-Stout Blue Devils on Sunday in ACHA Division 2 women’s action.

Sinclair’s second-period goal put the Wolves up 3-1.

She then set up Jordyn Paris’ goal later in the frame before adding assists on third-period markers by Farrah Nicholl and Sarah Dodic.

The previous night, Sinclair netted the game-winner in a 3-0 victory over the Blue Devils.

Sinclair has three goals and five assists in nine games for the Thunderwolves, who this season became the first Canadian team to join the ACHA women’s hockey circuit.

All three Fort players were blanked in a 3-1 loss to the Rocky Mountain Rough Riders later that day. But they were back with a vengeance in a two-game sweep on Sunday.
