More teams eliminated


The Rainy River District Fastball League season ended in disappointing fashion for three more squads over the past two nights.
Last night, it was the road team pulling off the upset as Dawson won 12-7 to oust Northwest Bay.
Ryan Anderson’s home run put the visitors up for good while Matt Anderson’s pitching performance held up to send Dawson into the next round.
Glen Smith was tagged with the loss.
On Tuesday, the Couchiching Raiders were knocked out with a 5-2 loss in Stratton.
Guy Arpin got the win on the mound while Jeff Kreger bashed a pair of homers to spark the offence for Stratton, who next will host Dawson on Tuesday (Aug. 13).
In other action Tuesday, the Big Island Huskies topped visiting Sabaskong 11-10 to send the Cubs into hibernation for the season.
Matt Comegan earned the win while Will Handorgan contributed a home run.
Kevin Copenace was saddled with the loss, with Mick Copenace belting a homer in a losing effort.
Big Island next will face either the Sight & Sound Wolves or the Rainy River Royals, whose win-or-go-home match-up slated for this past Tuesday was postponed due to rain.
That game now is set for this Monday (Aug. 12) at 6:30 p.m. at VanJura here.
In related news, an all-star team—playing under the Sight & Sound banner–begins plays today at the North American Fastpitch Association World Series in Des Moines, Iowa. Sight and Sound took on the Tulsa, Oklahoma Gray Sox in their first game in the A-Major Division at 9:40 a.m. CT today. The score was unavailable as of press time.
