Beavers sitting atop ladies’ standings


The Northwest Bay Beavers are showing early on that they’re the team to beat in the Rain River District Women’s Fastball League this season.
Shae Smith homered to lead the Beavers (4-0) to a 21-9 romp over the Fort Frances Angels on Monday night.
Darcy Smith earned the pitching win while Rylee Redford was tagged with the loss.

MVP honours went to Kailey Greengrass (Mud Dogs) and Taylor Pagee (Her-ricanes).
The Emo Renegades, meanwhile, rolled to a 23-7 rout of the Sabaskong Tebinaak in Barwick.
It was supposed to be a home game for the Renegades but the Emo diamond was not suitable for playing, causing the game to be relocated.
Mykenzie Borger picked up the win while Sheila Prince was tagged with the loss.
MVPs were Borger (Emo) and Savannah Prince (Sabaskong).
And Summer Leonard homered as the Manitou T-Birdies roared to a 18-8 victory over the Big Grassy Lynx.
