Raiders roll to 10th win of season


The Couchiching Raiders are proving to be a problem for a lot of teams in the Rainy River District Women's Fastball League.

Grace Bragg and Darcy Jones homered to pace the Raiders to their league-leading 10th win of the season in a 19-12 decision over the Fort Frances Angels last night at Couchiching.

Raelle Redford hit a homer in a losing cause for the Angels.

Bragg also earned the pitching win for the Raiders (10-1) over Riley Redford of the Angels (3-7-1).

In other games last night, the Sabaskong Tebinaak nabbed just their second win of the season with a 17-12 decision over the Dawson Tigers.

Candi Kelly nabbed the win for the Tebinaak (2-8).

Tina Jack homered while Cass Teeple suffered the loss for the Tigers (2-9).

Shae Smith went yard twice to pace the Northwest Bay Beavers to a convincing win over the Fort Frances Mud Dogs.

Darcy Smith garnered the win for the Beavers, who improved to 8-3 with their sixth win in a row.

Casey Meyers hit a pair of round-trippers and suffered the loss for the Mud Dogs (4-5-2).

And the Fort Frances Her-icanes improved to 9-1-1 with a convincing win over the Red Gut Babes.

Mariah Leahy earned the win over Tracy Morningstar of the Babes (1-6-3).

The Renegades (9-1) at Big Grassy Lynx (5-4-1) game was postponed and will be rescheduled for later in the season.

The Manitou T-Birdies (1-9) had the bye.

In Rainy River District Fastball League action on Tuesday night, three of the six scheduled games to open second-round play were postponed.

But for the three that were played, offence came in bunches.

The Lakers defeated the Goldeneyes 16-4 in an all-Sabaskong showdown.

Cecil Copenace slugged a grand slam to score all of the Goldeneyes' runs, but it wasn't enough.

James Yerxa garnered the win for the Lakers (5-5) over Cole Beacham of the Goldeneyes (2-8).

Mike Jourdain cranked a homer but it wasn't enough to keep the Couchiching Raiders from suffering a 13-8 setback to Windey's Warriors.

Rob McGinnis nabbed the win for the Warriors (6-5) while Jourdain was tagged with the loss for the Raiders (6-5).

And the Barwick Blue Knights crushed six home runs in a 23-9 romp over the Stratton Eagles.

Mike Anderson smacked two grand slams, while Brad Wakefield, Jaxon Calder, Ryder Woolsey, and Ryan Redford also went yard for the Blue Knights (7-4).

Brandan Pratt garnered the win over Marissa Kerry of the Eagles (5-6).

The Rainy River Royals (6-4) at Dawson Tigers (6-5) game has been rescheduled for July 18 while the Manitou Thunderbirds (2-8) at Northwest Bay Chieftains (2-8) game is now set for July 23.

The Fort Frances Braves (9-0) at Sight & Sound Wolves (6-4) game will be made up at a later date.

There are six games on the slate tonight, which are all 7 p.m. starts (weather permitting).

The Eagles will welcome the Tigers, the Blue Knights will make the trip to Sabaskong to take on the Lakers, the Goldeneyes will square off against the Royals in Rainy River, the Raiders will lock horns with the Chieftains, the Warriors will aim to hand the Braves their first loss of the season at Couchiching, and the Thunderbirds will try to take flight against the Wolves at VanJura.
