Silver showing

The Muskie junior girls’ basketball team out-hustled and out-manned the Superior Gryphons on Saturday en route to a 45-5 win in tournament play at the “Fish Tank.” The black-and-gold (2-1) ended up finishing second to Hammarskjold (3-0).

Shortreed settling into starter’s role between pipes

In a season marked by unprecedented turnover, it just may be a familiar face who decides how far the Fort Frances Lakers are going to go.

“We’re still in a ‘go’ pattern,” committee chairman Tom Fry said this morning.

Thundering hits

Fort Frances Lakers’ defenceman Ben Hilborn stopped Fort William North Stars’ Ryan Magill in his tracks with a solid open-ice hit during SIJHL action at the Ice For Kids Arena on Saturday night. The Lakers dropped a 4-2 decision after losing 11-6 the night before to fall to 2-7-2 on the season.

Lakers’ goalie Jameson Shortreed kept the game close, stopping an unprecedented 68 shots.
