Rainmakers Volleyball heads for placement round in Langley

The prospect of a British Columbia championship banner has grown dim, but for the Charles Hays Senior Boy's Rainmakers there's still a fair bit of competitive volleyball to be played, as the team prepares for Friday action on the placement side of this years provincials.

Thursday the Rainmakers ran into the top team of the tournament to this point, as they took to the court against the Fraser Valley's MEI Eagles.

A team highly touted to make it to the finals and judging from Eagles play of Thursday, that would seem to be a pretty good assessment of that team's talent pool.

Charles Hays gave it a good run, but the Eagles were in little difficulty on Thursday taking the Rainmakers in three consecutive sets, 25-11, 25-15, 25-12.

From there the Abbotsford squad knocked off another big name for BC Volleyball in Vernon's Seaton, setting up a shot for the Finals.

Thursday afternoon the Rainmakers then settled in for a pair of sets with Pacific Christian, dropping the first match to their opponents 25 to 15, while holding their opponents close in the second match almost forcing a third game, coming up just short 25 to 23.
