Senior Boys Rainmakers at Provincials
Tournament time for Charles Hays takes us into March and the AAA Provincial Championships now underway at the Langley Events Centre, as the Rainmakers take on some of the best that BC has to offer.
The four day tournament tipped off yesterday with the North Coast boys taking on Lord Byng in the opening round of the high tempo tournament.
The Rainmakers went into the 2017 Provincials ranked at the number six heading into the opening day.
The AAA Preview show took note of some of the buzz about the Rainmakers as they arrived in Langley for Tournament time, you can listen in to the comments from Howard Tsumura and Chris Kennedy at the 38 minute of the video below.
