Fort Frances Angels' pitcher Rylee Redford had to be nimble as she fielded a squibbler near home plate and attempted to make the throw to first base to gun out Jarrah Tom of the Sabaskong Tebinaak during her squad's 18-9 win in a Rainy River District Women's Fastball League Loser's Side playoff elimination game last Wednesday night at the St. Francis Sports Field.

Fawcett honoured to be a part of this year's HOF class

Scott Fawcett had a highly successful coaching career that spanned nearly 30 years and included 10 championships at various levels of the game of football.

But the Fort Frances native is quick to point out that football is a team sport and all of his accolades came from a collective effort from each of the teams, and players, he helped coach.
