Sunset stays in top spot


The opening game of the Fort Frances Men's Basketball League on Tuesday night featured a hard-fought battle that saw all 10 guys give their best effort playing a full 40 minutes.

In the end, John Sivonen's 22 points led Revco (9-8) to a 54-48 victory over Arctic Cat.

Jake McIntosh, meanwhile, did some great outside shooting—draining many baskets with a hand right in his face as he put up a team-high 22 points in a losing cause.

In the night's second game, BDO (1-16) trailed by only 10 points at the half.

But the squad only managed one basket from the floor in the second half en route to a 56-23 loss to Sunset Landscaping (13-4).

The father/son combo of Todd and Wyatt Richards led BDO with 14 points, while Mark Heyens' fast breaks up the floor helped him to a team-high 16 points for Sunset.

Seeming somewhat tired from playing two games on a night, Arctic Cat (9-9) didn't have much of an answer for the smooth passing of RRFN (11-5), which moved the ball around really well en route to a convincing 71-40 victory.

Four RRFN players ended up in double digits, with Sam Soderman netting a team-high 27 points.

Payne Hunter added three three-pointers, which helped him to a season-high 13 points.

McIntosh had 10 points to lead Arctic Cat.
