Barwick batters Big Island


The Barwick Blue Knights kept their perfect record intact in a makeup game against Big Island last night.
Barwick romped to a 19-2 victory to improve to 3-0 in the Rainy River District Fastball League standings.
The game originally was scheduled for Thursday night (May 13), but was postponed due to poor weather.
J.J. Landry and Mike Wilson homered for Barwick while George Oltsher earned the win on the mound.
Will Handorgan was tagged with the loss.
The full schedule resumes tonight with five games, including the Fort Frances-based Sight & Sound Wolves travelling to face the Big Grassy Braves.
Other action pits the Big Grassy Lightning at Sabaskong, Manitou facing Barwick, Big Island up against Rainy River, and Stratton battling Northwest Bay.
