      EAR FALLS, Ont. – The Fort Frances Lakers rode the strength of a four-goal second period and the shutout goaltending of newcomer  Nathan Park to blank the English River Miners 5-0 Thursday evening in a Superior International Junior Hockey League match-up at Ear Falls Arena.

      After a scoreless opening session, Fort Frances struck four times in a span just four minutes to take control of the contest.

      Colton Spicer got the visitors going with his 12th of the season at 6:52.

      That was followed by a Mason Meyer shorthanded effort a minute and a half later.

      The Lakers added to their cushion at 9:23 courtesy of Carter Chorney while Marco Romano added another at 11:06.

      Matt Vela then capped things off for Fort Frances in the final frame as the league-leaders won for the 21st time in 2014-15.

      Park kicked out all 24 shots fired his way is his SIJHL debut.

      Greg Harney saw 32 shots in a losing cause for the Miners.

      North Stars edge Iron Rangers

      THUNDER BAY, Ont. – The Thunder Bay North Stars used the strength of two third period power play goals to pull out a 4-3 victory over the Minnesota Iron Rangers in Superior International Junior Hockey League play Wednesday evening at the Fort William Gardens.

      Each team would score once in the opening 20 minutes A.J. Rupert getting the Iron Rangers on the board midway through the frame before Daniel McKitrick countered for Thunder Bay at the 13-minute mark.

      After Matthias Gardiman made it 2-1 North Stars at 6:54 of the second during a man advantage opportunity, Minnesota supplied tallies from Seth Chumley to tie it at 13:14 and Alex Arnold on the power play five minutes later to give the visitors the lead entering the third.

      In the final frame, Thunder Bay drew level at 12:26 as McKitrick notched his second of the night to level the proceedings.

      Then with overtime looming, the North Stars picked up the game-winner with 63 seconds left in regulation as Brandon Wolframe buried the difference maker with his club up a man.

      Nathaniel Dupuis was solid in the Thunder Bay net making 37 saves to register the win.

      Kyle Carignan faced 24 shots in a losing cause for Minnesota.

      SIJHL action resumes Thursday as the English River Miners host the league-leading Fort Frances Lakers in a 7 p.m. start at Ear Falls Arena.
