Pine River Fire Department and steeds win tournament
The Pine River Fire Department took home a trophy from the Jan. 7 Dairyland Donkey Basketball game at the Pine River-Backus School.
Pine River rallied after a near defeat in the first game of the night against the Backus Fire Department. While Backus led 6-2 until half-time, Pine River came back in the second half and tied up thanks to a penalty from Backus at the last second. An arm wrestling tie-breaker earned Pine River a spot in the final game.
The second game pitted the Scamp Travel Trailer Company against the Backus Locker, with Scamp advancing to the final round, where they were beat out by Pine River.
The event was a fundraiser for the Backus Cornfest.
