RRDFL highlights

The Couchiching Lady Raiders plunder their way into the semi-final with a win over the Northwest Bay Beavers.

The Raiders came out charging hard last Tuesday night with some aggressive base running and swiped multiple stolen bases during the game.  It could have been a costly strategy for the Raiders as they tried stretching out for extra bags led directly to three outs.

Two impaired drivers nabbed

Shortly before 7 a.m. on Sunday, officers from the Rainy River District detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) were dispatched to a single motor vehicle collision in the area of George Road.

As a result of the collision investigation a young driver aged 17 was charged criminally with Operate Conveyance with 80 or more milligrams of alcohol in 100 ml of blood.
