Saturday delivered perfect weather for Soccer, with the Sun not only making an appearance late into October but shining down on the work of the Charles Hays Rainmakers who claimed a NorthWest Zones championship in High School Soccer on Saturday.
The Rainmakers won two of the three contests scheduled on the weekend, topping Kitimat earlier in the day with a 4-0 victory in the morning, setting up what would be the tourney finale later in the afternoon against a tough playing Smithers squad.
Smithers moved into position to challenge for the title with a victory over Kitimat earlier in the afternoon.
The final game of the day featured some tough competition in the back and forth match up, with a number of scoring opportunities available for both teams before the game was sent to a shoot out and a 1-0 victory for the Rainmakers delivered the latest banner for the Charles Hays gymnasium.
The Rainmakers and head coach Simon Ruperto are awaiting further details on the provincial tournament, which is expected to take place in the Lower Mainland later this month.
A number of photos of Saturday's action can be found on the CHSS Twitter feed.
Two other squads were in action over the weekend for the Rainmakers, with the Junior Boys Volleyball team going undefeated on the road in Hazelton while the Junior Girls saw action in Smithers.
Volleyball and Rugby will wind down their seasons over the next few weeks, while the Basketball season will begin to heat up as we head into late November and December.
