Fury chew up Rockettes

Katie Beninger is a big believer in bulk production.

Beninger racked up four goals to lead the Fine Foods Fury to an 8-4 victory over the Wright Physiotherapy Rockettes in Borderland Women’s Indoor Soccer League action last night at Fort High.

It’s been feast or famine lately for the third-place Fury (4-4), who scored eight goals two weeks ago, then were shut out last week.

‘Red’ splits pair

After emptying the gas tank to win their first game, Team Red had no time to refuel before its second one.

Team Red (6-9) missed its first 10 shots yet only trailed by six points after the first three minutes.

Curlers open with wins

Chris Silver and Erin Tomalty no longer have a zero in their career OFSAA win column.

Silver, skipping the first Muskie boys’ rink to reach the all-Ontarios since 2011, edged the Frank J. Hayden Huskies (Burlington) 5-4 in their only game yesterday.

Accompanied by The No. 2-seeded rink in Pool ‘D,’ the Muskies were up two coming home without hammer.

Lakers lock up first

The road to the Bill Salonen Cup once again will go through Fort Frances.
