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.

Miller finishes second

Local kindergarten teacher (RRDSB) Priscilla Miller finished second overall in the Running Room-sponsored Canada Day 5.16K in Winnipeg.

The race cap allows a maximum of 450 runners thus providing a deep field.

The slightly “long” 5K includes significant trail running.

Miller ran 21:56 which averages to 6:50 minute per mile pace.

Centra romps over shorthanded CJ

Although it was a less than ideal situation for CJ Contracting, it still fought hard to the very end.

Fielding just the minimum seven players needed in order not to forfeit, CJ (1-2-2) ultimately ran out of gas as they suffered a 7-0 setback to Centra Pipelines in Borderland Soccer League men's division action last Wednesday night at the St. Francis Sports Field.
