Battle of the Prince's set for Charles Hays this weekend

Hoops fans will be heading to the Prince Rupert Boulevard campus this weekend as the Charles Hays Rainmakers Boys teams take on some visitors from the eastern side of the Highway 16 corridor, making for an opportunity for someone to lay claim to the bragging rights as the Best of the Prince's.

Prince George's Duchess Park Condors are the competition with both the Junior  and Senior Boy squads set for two days of competition at the CHSS Gymnasium.

The action tips off later this afternoon when the Junior teams take to the court at 5:30 PM, with the back end of the double header featuring the Senior teams starting at 7PM.

The two teams get back to it on Saturday with the Junior game scheduled for an 11:15 AM tip off, followed by the Senior's showdown at 1PM.

Admission at the door is 5 dollars for adults, 2 dollars for students.

The Condor's have made the journey west a road trip like experience, stopping in Terrace last evening to take on the Caledonia Kermodes.

The Duchess Park Senior squad comes into the weekend play after securing an 89-41 victory in Terrace, while the Junior Condors will be looking to get back on track following a two point loss to the Kermodes.

Weekend Scoreboard:


Charles Hays Senior Rainmakers 83 vs Duchess Park 68  
Charles Hays Junior Rainmakers 57 vs Duchess Park  22


Charles Hays Senior Rainmakers 69 vs Duchess Park 47
Charles Hays Junior Rainmakers 56 vs Duchess Park 48

The Charles Hays Junior Girls are off to Terrace for weekend play.

CHSS Jr. Girls 60 vs Hazelton 34
CHSS Jr.  Girls 46 vs Smithers Secondary 39

As we outlined on the blog yesterday, the Senior Girls team is in the spotlight, as they take on some top level competition out of Vancouver at the 26th Street Tournament.

The Rainmakers had a rough launch to the three days of tournament play dropping a 74 - 38 decision to the high tempo Little Flower Academy squad.

The Senior Girls return to action this afternoon at 2:15 in a matchup with Lord Byng Secondary

Former Charles Hays teacher Brian Cameron has been watching some of the action and forwarded a number of photos to the CHSS twitter feed for Rainmaker fans to enjoy.
