Arpin races to world championship

Competing at his first-ever World Championship Snowmobile Derby last weekend in Eagle River, Wis., Steve Arpin admitted he was nervous before each race.

Fort teams win tourney titles

Second-period tallies from S. Bliss, G. Madill, and B. Mainville helped the Tooks Hawks (Fort Frances) to a 5-1 victory over Atikokan in the final of the 10-team Emo Cowboys tournament Sunday afternoon.

Bliss put the Hawks up 1-0 with a goal in the first while R. Anderson netted an insurance marker in the third. Atikokan got its lone tally in the second frame.

Cowboys win their own tourney

The Emo Cowboys downed the Whitefish Bay Rangers 6-2 on Sunday afternoon to win their own Bantam tournament at the Emo-La Vallee Community Centre.

The Cowboys jumped on the scoreboard first on Donald Kellar’s marker, assisted by Matt Meyers, at the five-minute mark of the opening frame.

Lee rink off to Kelowna

First, she went out and pulled off an upset win at the “Northwesterns” in Rainy River last month.

Then last Sunday, she went a step further and pulled off an impressive win in the final of the Northern Ontario junior women’s playdowns in Iroquois Falls.

So what’s next for Angela Lee and her Stratton rink? She hopes a national title—and why not?

Seniors bounced in tournament final

The Muskie senior boys’ basketball team dropped a tight 90-84 decision to the host Churchill Bulldogs in the championship game of a six-team tournament in Winnipeg last weekend.

The Muskies came out flying in the final—outscoring the Bulldogs 12-2 to open the game—but then watched as Churchill fought back with some hot outside shooting.
