Nolan wins award

A gunner from Geraldton made his mark to be named the cream of the crop this past week in the SIJHL.
Fort Frances Lakers’ forward Miles Nolan earned Pizza Hut player-of-the-week honours after scoring three times in two games to help the Lakers grab a 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven semi-final with the English River Miners.

Nolan had a pair of power-play goals in a 4-1 victory in Game 1 on Friday night, then netted an even-strength tally in Game 2’s 4-3 triumph Saturday.
The 19-year-old leads the Lakers in playoff scoring so far with five points in four games.
Game 3 of the series goes Thursday night in Ear Falls, with Game 4 there Friday.
Game 5, if necessary, will go Sunday at 7:30 p.m. at the ’52 Canadians Arena (due to the ice show earlier in the day at the Ice For Kids Arena).
