Spicer, Carlson to play in Portage next season

After playing for their hometown team for the last two seasons, forward Colton Spicer and defenceman Jon Carlson are moving from the Fort Frances Lakers.

The local players, along with goaltender Talor Joseph were traded from the SIJHL club to the MJHL’s Portage Terriers last Wednesday, in exchange for twin forwards Bryce and Lyndon Lipinski, along with a player development fee.

Bass champs

Jamie Bruce, left, and Bryan Gustafson held up four of the five bass that they caught on Saturday, which allowed them to win the 2013 “Castin’ for Cash” tournament on Lake Despair. Meanwhile, at right, Solly McBride held up one of the five fish that she and her husband, Doug, reeled in on Day 2.

Big fish

With some help from his dad, Corey, Chase Curtis hoisted up the 4.50-pound bass that his father reeled out of Lake Despair on Saturday during the annual “Castin’ for Cash” bass fishing tournament.

Thunder Bay Chill defender Paul Dillon passed the ball to Max VanDrunen during the Chill’s youth soccer clinic at the Struchan Gilson pitches here. A total of 30 Fort Frances Youth Soccer players took part in the two-day clinic, which wrapped up yesterday afternoon.

Coming through

Chris Sinclair of Manitou Forest Products rounded his way around Tim Campbell of Senior Pharmasave during a Borderland Soccer League men’s division game yesterday evening. Although Sinclair would set up a goal by Ahamadou Idrissou moments after this photo was taken, Senior Pharmasave had the last laugh in coming away with a 4-3 victory.
