Mud Dogs earn first point

Staff

The new kids in town are on the board.
The expansion Fort Frances Mud Dogs recorded their first point of the season last night with a 3-3 tie against the host Big Island Wildcats in Rainy River District Women’s Fastball League action.
Candace Handorgan homered for the Wildcats (0-1-1) in a make-up game from May 13.
But her strong effort on the mound was matched pitch for pitch by Mud Dogs’ hurler Erica Paulsen to salvage the draw for Fort Frances (0-1-1).
League action resumes today at 6:30 p.m. on six fronts.
The marquee match-up will be the Fort Frances Herricanes (1-0) hosting the Big Grassy Lynx (1-0) at VanJura—scene of the Fort’s playoff elimination last year at the hands of the Lynx.
Another key game will see the first-place Couchiching Lady Raiders (2-0) visiting Northwest Bay (0-1-1).
The Mud Dogs will host the two-time defending champion Red Gut Babes (1-0-1) while the Fort Frances Juniors (1-0) head west to face the Sabaskong Cougars (1-1).
Sabaskong Tebinaak (1-2) will host the Manitou Blaze (0-1) while Big Island hits the road against the Pinewood Diggers (0-1).
