Standing in their way, a hard working team from Terrace as the Caledonia Kermodes look to book their own ticket to High School Basketball's Big Dance in Langley.
The two teams will settle it all for 2017 today and tomorrow at the Charles Hays Gymnasium.
The schedule for the double knock out Northwest Zones looks like this.

Charles Hays Claims NW Banner
Advance to Provincials March 8-11 at Langley Events Centre
Saturday 1 PM -- Rainmakers 68 vs Caledonia 45
Friday 7PM -- Rainmakers 71 vs Caledonia 36
Both the Rainmakers and the Kermodes have been on the radar of the Vancouver sports media for much of the basketball season, as both have travelled south for tournament action through the 2016-17 season.
The Rainmakers have been frequently found among the Top Ten listings over the course of the season, while Terrace has received a few honourable mentions as well as those listings were delivered over the last four months.
Heading into this weekends showdown, the latest AAA BC High school rankings, Charles Hays is listed at 7th overall, a spot that they have held from the last release.
