Juniors, Lady Raiders ousted

That’s all she wrote for two more teams in the Rainy River District Women’s Fastball League.
The Fort Frances Juniors’ inaugural season came to an end with a 37-5 loss to the host Big Grassy Lynx last night.

Nancy Indian handcuffed the ninth-seeded Juniors with her complete-game victory and had more than enough offensive support to help fifth-ranked Lynx advance.
Sara Jackson took the loss for the Juniors.
The off-season also began early for the seventh-ranked Couchiching Lady Raiders, who dropped a heart-breaking 10-9 road loss to the sixth-seeded Sabaskong Tebinaak last night.
Janet Bob had just enough of her good stuff working to win the pitching match-up over Couchiching’s Sydney Jones.
Big Grassy now will head to VanJura in a loser-goes-home clash with the third-ranked Fort Frances Herricanes tomorrow at 6 p.m.
That’s because the ’Canes were beaten 9-2 by host Northwest Bay last night to put last year’s league runners-up into last-chance territory.
Darcy Smith worked her way out of a pair of bases-loaded jams to earn the win for Northwest Bay, which won all three meeting with the ’Canes this year.
Laureen Hill took the loss.
Northwest Bay either will travel tomorrow to face Redgut or host the fourth-seeded Manitou Blaze, depending on who won last night’s game between the Babes and Blaze.
No score was available as of press time.
The loser of that game will host Tebinaak tomorrow in another must-win showdown for both squads.
