Muskies bucked by Broncos

The atmosphere was electric last night at the Ice For Kids Arena but the Muskie boys' hockey team couldn't capitalize on it.

Playing in front of a large contingent of their raucous faithful, the International Falls Broncos skated to a 2-1 exhibition win over the black-and-gold in the second instalment of the annual “Border Battle” between the two squads.

Jr. squad nabs title

It was an impressive weekend for the Muskie junior boys' basketball team in Kenora over the weekend.

The squad won all three of its games en route to the Kenora Invitational Tournament title.

The black-and-gold opened play Friday with a 44-8 romp over Whitefish Bay, who were filling in for Pelican Falls as they couldn't make the trip.

Two teams top night

Take A Hit and the Volley Llamas both garnered the maximum six points in Fort Frances Women's Volleyball League action last night.

How I Set Your Mother and Gillons' were right behind with five each.

Scared Hitless and Duck and Dive both nabbed four points while Safe Sets and Let's Talk About Sets each snared three.

Quick start by Norskies sinks Lakers

The Fort Frances Lakers knew it wasn't going to be their night early on in the first period.

That was made quite evident to them by the front-running Thief River Falls Norskies, who stormed out to an early four-goal lead en route to a 7-1 romp Tuesday night at the Ice For Kids Arena.

It was the Lakers' second-straight loss following a season-high four-game winning streak.

Figure skaters impress

Local members of the Border Figure Skating Club had an impressive showing during the “Icebox Days” competition on the weekend over in International Falls.

Adalynn Seguin claimed third in the Basic 1 elements while Tayah Cumming nabbed second in Basic 2 elements.

Aubrey Johnson, meanwhile, took second spot in the Basic 3 elements, with Bryden Strachan right behind in third.
