Lakers’ debut stellar for Park

Once the Fort Frances Lakers got the offence rolling, the rest of the night was a walk in the “Park.”
The Lakers scored four goals in just over four minutes in the second period, and Nathan Park made 24 saves to earn the shutout in his SIJHL debut, as Fort Frances blanked the English River Miners 5-0 last night in Ear Falls.

I’d Hit That moving up

After a season that’s felt like one big lump of coal, I’d Hit That will enjoy plenty of Christmas cheer after its best night of the campaign.
The last-place squad in the Fort Frances Women’s Volleyball League, which earned its first two points of the season the previous week, shocked its opponents last Thursday by garnering all six points in their two matches.

Vous grabs top spot

Somebody had to blink but Josh Mastin’s play opened the eyes of his opponent extremely wide.
Mastin sank a game-high 39 points Monday night to lift La Place Rendez-Vous to a 91-72 win over Taggs in a battle of unbeaten teams in the Fort Frances Men’s Basketball League.
Taggs (2-1) saw Caleb McIntosh drain 29 points for them but had not much of a solution to stop Mastin and the Vous (3-0).

Court teams split

Special Olympics needs volunteers

Looking to volunteer in the New Year? How about helping out with Fort Frances Special Olympics?
The organization is looking for more people to coach its five-pin bowling program, as well as start up a bocce program in the spring, said community co-ordinator Gaby Hanzuk, who makes up the local Special Olympics executive along with treasurer Ellen Caul and secretary Roz Calder.

Lakers getting out of gate better

The Fort Frances Lakers have been physically punctual for their 7:30 p.m. face-offs this year, but more often than not haven’t mentally checked in until around 8:15 p.m.
That trend seems to be reversing of late, though.
