Kenora Slo-pitch is off to a great start. The women's league began their season last night. It was Johnson's Trashers over the Riverview Rebels. Thrasher Debra Kakeway was the hero of the night with a homerun. In other games, Northern Harbour defeated the Strykers, and the Hosers took the win against 3D Contracting thanks – in part-- to a homerun by Melanie McBride-Burtnick.

There is another busy night of slo-pitch planned today. For the women, beginning at 6:30 p.m., the Neniska Crushers will go head to head with the WNHAC Wreckers. That game will go at the Rec Centre. Three games are on the schedule for 7:30 p.m. The Bravettes will face JLR Contracting, and CUPE will take on D. Smith Contacting at the A&W fields. The Hosers will take on True North at Centre. All About that Base will go head to head with Johnson's Trashers at 8:00 p.m. Finally, D&R Plumbing and the Jays will finish up the night at 9:30. Both games take place at the Rec Centre.

On tonight's men's league schedule, the night begins at 6:30p.m. with Caseys taking on DSmith Contracting at the Rec Centre, and Ye Old Gulls facing Holmes Property Care in Keewatin. At 8:00p.m. at the Rec Centre Ray Solar will take on Current Electric, and at 9:30p.m. Cabin Jacks Gunners will go head to head with Bowman Electric.
