To say Mother Nature wasn't always pleasant in the first half of the Rainy River District Women's Fastball League season would be an understatement.
The season schedule hit its midway point Monday night with a handful of make-up games being played.
The Big Grassy Lynx were the busiest team—playing two contests that included one from back on June 13 against the Fort Frances Angels.
A home run from Nancy Indian wasn't enough as the Lynx fell 20-14 to the Angels.

The MVPs were Micaela Jack (Lynx) and Avery Sivonen (Angels).
The Lynx had a better showing in their second make-up game Monday night, however, as they rolled to an 18-4 triumph over the Fort Frances Her-ricanes for the one that originally was scheduled for June 11.
Indian again homered while Candace Handorgan picked up the win on the rubber.
Dana Ward suffered the loss.
MVP honours went to Indian (Lynx) and Sarah Noonan (Her-ricanes).
