Reigning EWC champs dethroned

The third time was the charm for Dan and Josh Pollard over the weekend.

After back-to-back years of finishing second to Baudette's Les Morrison and Morson's Oliver Gibbins, the Emo natives captured the 18th-annual Emo Walleye Classic with a two-day haul of 15.69 pounds and dethroned the reigning champs.

Braves remain undefeated

It's been a great start to the Rainy River District Fastball League season for the two-time defending champion Fort Frances Braves.

Cole Tymkin smacked another homer to pace the Braves to a 17-1 rout of the Manitou Thunderbirds on Tuesday night to improve their record to a perfect 3-0.

Owls' squads ready for playoffs

Anything can happen in the playoffs and both the Rainy River Owls' girls' and boys' soccer teams hope things will land in their favour this week.

The girls' squad ended the NorWOSSA 'A' regular season with a loss and a draw to the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints (Kenora) in Red Lake last Wednesday and Thursday to see their record fall to 3-2-1.

Lynx romp all over Mud Dogs

You could say the Big Grassy Lynx bit a chunk out of the Fort Frances Mud Dogs.

The Lynx jumped all over Mud Dogs' starter Jodie Hood en-route to a 12-run first inning and never looked back in a 21-12 romp in Rainy River District Women's Fastball League action last Wednesday night at the St. Francis Sports Field.

Muskie boys pleased to clinch first place

The Muskie boys' soccer team set two goals for themselves heading into this season.

The first was to clinch a first-place bye to the NorWOSSA final and the second was to advance to OFSAA.

Fort High has already accomplished the former, dispatching both the Kenora Broncos and host Dryden Eagles last Wednesday to secure the first-place bye with a perfect 4-0 record.
