Lakers' roster taking shape

The Fort Frances Lakers' roster for the 2018-19 season continues to take shape.

Head coach and general manager Wayne Strachan last week announced that four players had re-signed with the team while another had committed to go to school.

Among those returning to Fort Frances next season is last year's leading goal-scorer Jaedin Ness.

Pair of racers nab first wins

It was time for a pair of new faces to shine at the Emo Speedway on Saturday night.

Tyler Brown and Aaron Blacklance both nabbed their first checkered flags of the Borderland Racing Association season in the WISSOTA Modifieds and Midwest Modifieds divisions.

Brown, from Rainy River, earned his win over the likes of Brady Caul of Fort Frances and hometown star Brody Strachan.

Beavers ground T-Birdies

After rolling to a league-best 14-1 record in the regular season, the Northwest Bay Beavers kept that momentum going in its first Rainy River District Women's Fastball League playoff action of the year.

Darcy Smith pitched brilliantly to pace the Beavers to a 22-2 rout of the ninth-ranked Manitou T-Birdies last night.
