Football practice

The Muskie football team had some of its members show up for an extra practice session Sunday afternoon at Fort High in order to get some prep work in for tomorrow's home game, which slated for 4 p.m. against the Maples Marauders. Those on hand worked hard on receiving drills like this one for a portion of the practice.

Circling in

Nick Hahkala of the Fort Frances Lakers looked to motor his way toward the net around his Minnesota Iron Rangers' opponents during the first period of his squad's 6-5 win in their home-opener Friday night. The Lakers then fell 5-3 to the visiting Thunder Bay North Stars the following night to suffer their first loss of the SIJHL season (3-1-0-0).
