Muskie duo nab top 10s

As has been the case all season, the newest runners made the biggest noise for the Muskies.

The Grade 9 duo of Liam George and Tori Toriseva both cracked the top 10 in their respective divisions at the NWOSSAA cross-country running championships yesterday in Thunder Bay.

George was fourth out of 27 finishers in the Midget boys’ division in a time of 15:43.2.

Miners double Lakers

The English River Miners were akin to the free space on the Fort Frances Lakers’ Bingo card the past two seasons.

But Tuesday night, the Miners reached into the ball bin and pulled one out under the ‘N’—as in “no longer.”

English River unleashed 20 shots in a three-goal second period en route to a 6-3 victory at the Cochenour Arena.

Lakers beaten twice at home

There is nothing “special” about the Fort Frances Lakers’ special teams units right now.

Whether it was the other teams’ power play or their own, the Lakers couldn’t seem to keep the red light from going on behind their goalies in a pair of weekend losses at the Ice For Kids Arena.

Road work nears end

Work on Colonization Road East is in its final phase at long last.

Thunder Bay contractor Makkinga Contracting & Equipment Rentals started installing the first lift of asphalt today.

The contractor will pave the section of Colonization Road East between Scott Street and Third Street East.

Then after taking the weekend off, paving will resume Monday.
