Fastballers rained out


The dramatic elements of the Rainy River District Women’s Fastball League playoffs were pushed to the background by Mother Nature.
Last night’s scheduled Losers’ Side semi-final at Red Gut Bay between the second-ranked Babes and fifth-seeded Northwest Bay Beavers was rained out.
The two teams had not set a makeup date as of press time, although a message on the league’s Facebook page suggested they would try to get the game in tonight (weather permitting).
The start time for the makeup game also was unknown, although last night’s affair was slated to begin at 6 p.m.
Whenever it is played, the winner will move on to host the sixth-ranked Dawson Tigers in the Losers’ Side final.
That winner, in turn, then will face the defending champion Fort Frances Her-icanes in the league final.
The ‘Canes advanced to the final by dumping Dawson 13-3 on Monday night in the Winners’ Side final.
Despite the loss, the Tigers stayed alive by dropping down to the Losers’ Side final.
