The Fort Frances Lakers played a double bill against the Thunder Bay Norskies on hometown ice last weekend. Although they put up a strong fight, they were defeated in both games. In Friday night’s match, the Norskies bested the Lakers 6-2. But the hometown boys rallied on Saturday, to nearly even the match, to a razor thin 3-2 loss. This weekend’s games against the Wisconsin Lumberjacks have been postponed. However, two home games against the Red Lake Miners have been added, to take place October 15 and 16 at the Ice for Kids Arena.
