Rough start for Rainmakers Volleyball in Langley

The opening day of the AA Provincials in Langley proved to be a challenging one for the Charles Hays Rainmakers squad, as the Senior Boys found themselves on the short side of the scorecards for much of the play Wednesday.

The Rainmakers finished in fourth place in Pool D Play yesterday, picking up one win on the eight sets of the day at the tournament, though they were close in many of the games played through the morning and into the afternoon.

The Rainmakers were topped by Woodlands  25-12 in the first game, making things interesting in game number two by a score of 25-21.

Charles Hays took Prince Charles of Creston to three sets, dropping the first game 25-19, but bouncing back to win the second set by the same score, the Creston squad won the tie breaker set 16-14.

The third and final group of games for the Rainmakers saw them facing down Sa-Hali out of Kamloops, with the Interior team taking the first match 25-14 and winning game number two 25-17.

With their victories Sa-Hali claimed the most most success of the Opening Day Pool D action, winning all three match ups with six victories over the course of the day on the court Wednesday.

The Rainmakers now move on Round Two with a 9 AM match up with MEI, the Abbotsford based squad had a very successful Opening day winning all three matches, with six of seven victories on the day.

Hopes of advancing further in the Provincial tournament will have to come through one of the top teams in High School Volleyball, with the Eagles considered one of the powerhouse squads of the Lower Mainland.
