The Charles Hays Senior Boys continued to impress with their play as they Rainmakers took on the challenge of the AAA level Brookswood Bobcats over the weekend and took a pair of victories from their play at the CHSS Gymnasium.
Friday night they opened up the two game series, with both games showcasing a high tempo of play and some close scoring, the AA level Makers providing for a strong challenge for the lower mainland squad.
The back and forth of the play on the night was a case of the two teams testing each other out, trying to determine where the best results on the court could be found.
The Rainmakers finding their path to victory with a strong close in the second half on the way to the 73-66 victory.
Saturday afternoon brought the two teams together for the finale for the trip to the North Coast for the Langley squad, with the Rainmakers claiming a 69 to 57 victory in a tightly contested game, with contributions from much of the Rainmaker roster on the day.
Kai Leighton, Tyler Jones and Rylan Adams helped to set the pace for the Rainmakers over the course of the two games of the weekend, with other contributions from much of the Rainmaker roster through the two games.
The Tour for Brookswood began Thursday night with a game in Terrace at the Caledonia gym, which went the way of the Kermodes.
Brookswood returned to Terrace on Saturday, though it's not know if their planned second match up with the Kermodes went ahead.
That as some extreme weather created a bit of chaos in the Terrace area over the weekend prior to their plans for departure back south.
The Senior Boys will be the travelling squad this weekend, as they make their way to Vancouver and the much anticipated Emerald Tournament at Vancouver College, the trek south will run from January 22 to 26.
That trip to Vancouver will once again provide the Rainmakers with a chance to measure their game with that of some of the top teams from the Lower Mainland and across British Columbia.
