Al’s bomb Taggs

That was one heck of a welcome back party.
Al’s Racquet Stringing celebrated the return of Laureen Peters to their lineup by annihilating Taggs 13-1 in Borderland Soccer League women’s division action last night.

’Canes ‘walk’ all over Babes

Marc Cohn once sang about “Walking in Memphis.”
Add up the combined distance travelled by those who received free passes here last night and someone easily could have walked to Memphis.
No less than 29 walks were issued by pitchers in the Fort Frances Herricanes’ 23-14 victory over the Redgut Babes in Rainy River District Women’s Fastball League action.

Lakers win bid to host Cup

It finally can be carved in stone.
The Fort Frances Lakers officially revealed Saturday that they’ve been selected as the host team for the 2015 Dudley Hewitt Cup (the Central Canadian Junior ‘A’ championship), which will run April 28-May 2.

Warriors sweep twinbill from Cubs

For an injured guy, Sheldon Kelly looked pretty healthy.
The right-hander gave up two first-inning runs, then slammed the door the rest of the way to lead Beef’s Warriors to a 9-2 victory and a sweep of their Rainy River District Fastball League doubleheader against the Sabaskong Cubs last night at Couchiching.

Taggs topples Al’s

If England brought Hannah Firth-Oster on board, they still might be in the running for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Firth-Oster, who usually sports a Team England jersey when she plays, continued her hot streak with two more goals to lead Taggs to a 6-2 win over Al’s Racquet Stringing in Borderland Soccer League women’s division action last night.

Games both end in ties

The four teams playing in the Borderland Soccer League men’s division last night got themselves all worked up into knots.
Nothing was decided in either of the two contests as the evening ended with a pair of draws.

SIJHL may lose team

Nothing is written in stone—or carved in ice—at this point.
But there is a strong possibility the SIJHL may be reduced to five teams for the 2014-15 season as the Wisconsin Wilderness reportedly may be folding.

’Canes keep winning

The Sabaskong Cougars tried to survive doing the “Walk of Life” but the Fort Frances Herricanes’ run-scoring juggernaut killed that idea.
The Herricanes (11-1-1) rolled to a 33-17 victory over the winless Cougars (0-11) in Rainy River District Women’s Fastball League action here last night.

Hyatt, Chill set to defend title

There’s only one first time but Claire Hyatt would be glad to experience that championship feeling once again.
The Muskie girls’ soccer team member will sport a different jersey next week as she and the rest of the Thunder Bay Chill U18 team try to defend their U17 division title from a year ago at the Schwan’s USA Cup International Youth Soccer Tournament in Blaine, Mn.

Stinson able to conquer grief to earn worlds berth

It really wasn’t fair for the rest of the provinces participating in Canadian Gymnaestrada last week in Calgary.
Not when they were going up against a Team Saskatchewan lineup that featured 70 competitors and one guardian angel.
