Fort Frances Lakers’ defenceman Michael Chapman tried to zoom his way past Thief River Falls Norskies’ defender Greg Paseschnikoff in the offensive zone during the third period of his squad’s 8-2 romp in the SIJHL season-opener for both teams on Friday night at the Ice For Kids Arena. The Lakers’ then rallied for a 3-2 overtime victory the following night at the Ralph Engelstad Arena to sweep the home-and-home series and start the season with a 2-0 record.
