Muskie boys place third

It's been another great start to the season for the Muskie boys' soccer team.

After defeating both the visiting Dryden Eagles and Kenora Broncos by a combined 7-0 total in the NorWOSSA season-opening games last Wednesday, the black-and-gold kept that momentum rolling as they battled to a third-place finish at the Broncos Challenge Cup tournament in Kenora over the weekend.

'DU' banquet #1

As he has done for many years, auctioneer Telford Advent of Riverbend Auction Services entertained those on hand and got them into the spirit of bidding on the plethora of items that were up for grabs during the live auction portion of the night at the 35th-annual Ducks Unlimited banquet and auction Friday at the Fort Frances Curling Club.

Tending goal

Muskie rookie goalkeeper Jersey Masson may have been a touch late in stopping this Dryden Eagles' goal but she buckled down and helped Fort High secure a 3-2 win in the NorWOSSA regular season-opener last Wednesday morning at Fort High.

Big swing

Taylor Pagee took a big cut at a pitch during the first inning of the Fort Frances Her-icanes' 19-2 romp over the Manitou T-Birdies in the Rainy River District Women's Fastball League season-opener last night at VanJura.
