Lakers finalize roster

After hours upon hours of evaluation, Wayne Strachan has decided on the group that will look to continue a winning tradition.
The Fort Frances Lakers released their roster for the 2014-15 season last night while also making a flurry of last-minute roster moves to round out the unit that will look to defend its SIJHL crown.

Second half sinks Muskies

Things are trending upward for the Muskie football team, though there’s still plenty of work to do.
The black-and-gold hung tough for the first half but were outscored 16-0 after halftime to fall 36-13 to the host Dryden Eagles in WHSFL action Friday night.

Another exhibition win for Lakers

It’s only the preseason but the Fort Frances Lakers seem to be back to their familiar winning ways of a season ago.
Alex Rezansoff scored on the power-play with 2:35 left to cap a three-goal rally in the third that lifted the Lakers to a 4-3 victory over the host Minnesota Iron Rangers on Tuesday night.

Eighth for Morrisseau

With conditions leaning towards the miserable side, the Muskie golf team got its first competitive swings of the season yesterday in Dryden.
Tyson-Skylar Morrisseau topped the locals with an eighth-place finish in the field of 31.
He carded a round of 89 in the first NorWOSSA event of the season.
“I think he was slightly disappointed,” Muskie golf coach Brian Johnstone said of Morrisseau.

Youth indoor soccer in works

Amy Wilson-Hands isn’t about to let the icy grip of winter stop her ambitions to help create a rock-solid grassroots foundation for soccer here.
Those in Grades 6-9, looking for more opportunity to develop their skills, will get the chance to do so Sundays from 6-9 p.m. starting Sept. 14, when the first youth indoor soccer program takes place at Robert Moore School.

Muskies blanked to open season

Just having enough players to make the road trip to Brandon last Thursday had to be considered a victory for the Muskie football program considering the shorthanded situation it faced only days earlier.
A victory on the scoreboard, however, will have to wait for another day.

Lakers pleased to bring back Aiken

It’s like three wins in two.
Just two days after opening their SIJHL pre-season schedule with a pair of victories, the Fort Frances Lakers bolstered their lineup by reacquiring forward Brent Aiken from the Mattawa Blackhawks (NOJHL) for forward Mark Spong.

Lakers reacquire Aiken, cut goalie

A familiar face is back in the fold for the Fort Frances Lakers.
The team announced yesterday it had traded forward Mark Spong to the Mattawa Blackhawks (NOJHL) in exchange for the playing rights of forward Brent Aiken.

Lakers win openers

Alex Rezansoff is still running wild.
The former Wisconsin Wilderness forward tallied twice both nights to help the Fort Frances Lakers capture a pair of weekend victories in the first two games of the pre-season for the defending SIJHL champs.

Muskies blanked in opener

It can only get better from here.
The Muskies were blanked 30-0 by the Neelin Spartans in their WHSFL regular-season opener yesterday in Brandon.
“Our inexperience shone through. We’re really raw,” Mike Cuzzolino admitted after his head coaching debut with the black-and-gold.
“Lots of guys got their eyes opened a bit.”
