Tough throw


Joey Payeur

Fort Frances Herricanes’ pitcher Micaela Jack was all smiles after knocking down a comebacker hit by Michelle Tymkin of the Fort Frances Mud Dogs. But Jack’s subsequent throw to first went wide of the bag, allowing Megan Reid to scamper home from third with the go-ahead run in an 8-5 win for the Mud Dogs in Rainy River District Women’s Fastball League action yesterday at VanJura. Other games saw the Couchiching Lady Raiders beat the Fort Frances Juniors 14-10, the Red Gut Babes slam Sabaskong Tebinaak 25-4, Northwest Bay double the Dawson Diggers 22-11, the Big Grassy Lynx dump the Sabaskong Cougars 13-2, and the Manitou Blaze rout the Big Island Wildcats 28-1.
