Better ahead than Red.
So went the story of Tuesday night’s doubleheader in the Fort Frances Men’s Basketball League at J.W. Walker, which saw Team Red suffer two losses.
In a hard-fought contest that went down to the wire, Team White held off Team Red 69-64.
Dustin Mowe paced Team White (2-5) with 18 points.
John Sivonen netted a game-high 29 for Team Red (2-5).
Sivonen added 20 more points in the nightcap, but a worn-down Team Red couldn’t hang with Team Black in a 115-74 defeat.
League scoring leader Josh Mastin led Team Black (6-0) with a game-high 43 points.
Action resumes next week, although the date and venue remained unknown at press time.
The league tentatively was scheduled to switch to Mondays at Fort High, but those plans were delayed by at least one week for unknown reasons.
