Block attempt

Muskie Connor Nelson looked to manoeuvre his way around a Kenora Broncos' block attempt during the squads' 1-1 draw last Wednesday morning in the NorWOSSA regular season-opener at Fort High. The Muskies then downed the visiting Dryden Eagles 5-0 that afternoon before finishing sixth at the Broncos Challenge Cup tournament over the weekend in Kenora.

DU auctioneer

Telford Advent, auctioneer for Riverbend Auction Services, entertained those on hand with a mix of humour and skill as he auctioned off the plethora of items at the Ducks Unlimited banquet and auction Friday night at the Fort Frances Curling Club.

DU banquet successful yet again

It was a night of good food, good prizes, and good fellowship at the 34th-annual Ducks Unlimited banquet and auction held Friday at the Fort Frances Curling Club.

Heading ball

The Owls also were blanked by that same score that morning by the visiting St. Thomas Aquinas Saints (Kenora). See story, more photos on B2.

Mixed start to Owls' season

Both Rainy River Owls' soccer squads know they'll be in tough in NorWOSSA 'A' action this season.

That was made pretty evident last Wednesday and Thursday by the visiting St. Thomas Aquinas Saints (Kenora) and Sioux Lookout Warriors.

The girls' squad opened with a 2-0 shutout loss to the Saints on Wednesday before battling them to a scoreless draw the next morning.
