Third-straight win for CJ

Ian Jodoin scored twice in the second half to pace CJ Contracting to a 5-0 romp over Manitou Forest Products in Borderland Soccer League men's division action last night at the St. Francis Sports Field.

It was the third-straight win for first-place CJ (5-2).

Lakers' top scorer back

It's tough when any hockey team loses its leading scorer.

Fortunately for the Fort Frances Lakers, that won't be the case next season.

Lakers' head coach and general manager Wayne Strachan last week announced that forward Nick Lucas will be returning to the squad for another campaign.

Desaulniers brightest of all-stars

John Desaulniers shone brightly during the Rainy River District Fastball League's annual all-star game held Thursday night in Pinewood.

Desaulniers was solid on the rubber and also belted a grand slam to left field to pace the East All-Stars to a 11-1 rout of the West All-Stars.

Don Smith also went yard for the East.

Jeff Morrison was tagged with the loss.

Carlson earns accolade

The accolades keep on coming for Molly Carlson.

The Fort Frances native was among 15 Florida State Seminoles' swimmers and divers named to the College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Scholar All-America teams last Wednesday.
