Broncos buck Muskies in shutout win

If you had told Muskie head coach Bob Swing that his team would be on the receiving end of seven International Falls Bronco fumbles in their game there Friday night, he’d have worn a smile as big as Rainy Lake.

Unfortunately, the black-and-gold failed to capitalize on any of those gifts and headed home on the short end of a 26-0 score, dropping their overall season record to 1-1.

Badiuk places fourth at triathlon

Despite a wipeout during the mountain bike portion of her sprint triathlon, Connee Badiuk still managed to place fourth overall in the women’s division Sunday in Kenora.

“I had a great race . . . it was my best time ever,” enthused Badiuk, who competed in the 35-39 age division and finished with a time of 1:24.49.

Kiwanis night golf another hit

The fifth-annual Kiwanis “Nite Lite” golf tourney Friday night at Kitchen Creek was another success, raising $705 for the club’s “Young Children Priority One” projects.

The nine-hole, best-ball event, which got underway with a shotgun start at 9 p.m., attracted 51 golfers divided into 14 teams.

Emo clobbers Barwick for fastball title

You could have called it the Rainy River District “Longball” League championship.

The Emo Bulldogs slugged five home runs last night, including a grand slam, to clobber the Barwick Blue Knights 14-2 to claim their third-straight RRDFL title.

The teams had met last Thursday but the game was called in the bottom of the seventh inning due to darkness with Barwick leading 7-6.

Muskies set to battle Broncos

After passing their first test of this young football season with last week’s 22-14 exhibition win over the Sturgeon Creek Schooners (Winnipeg), the Muskies’ second test will be a whole lot tougher.

They head across the river Friday night to take on the International Falls Broncos—and they’d better be prepared.

More practices, less games: CHA

The most influential minds in Canadian hockey, meeting in Toronto last week to discuss the state of our national pastime, came away with a long list of recommendations, including having more practices than games.

“I think the biggest issue is the practice-to-games ratio and the availability of ice time,” noted Lynn Kellar, president of the Fort Frances Minor Hockey Association.

Muskies sink Schooners in debut

“They’re not as good as they were last year,” said Brett Watt, head coach of the Sturgeon Creek Schooners, referring to the Muskies after their 22-14 victory over the Winnipeg squad here last Friday.

Then again, it’s tough to top the 62-0 shellacking the black-and-gold handed the Schooners a year ago.

Certainly, all things pointed to a closer game this time around.
