A third day of Zones competition wasn't required over the weekend, as the Charles Hays Rainmakers dominated the court on Friday and Saturday on their way to another Northwest Zones championship and the chance now to defend their Provincial AA title in Langley next month at Provincials.

The Senior Boys began their work on the weekend on Friday afternoon tipping off against Caledonia in the tourney icebreaker at 2PM, taking the first match of the 2020 Northwest Zones 67 to 26.

The 7 PM game saw the Makers' find similar success against Smithers Secondary, besting the Bulkley Valley Seniors 71 to 39.

That set the stage for the Saturday semi final, with the Kermodes prevailing over Smithers, the 68 to 45 victory moving Caledonia on to the Zones final and a 5 PM tip off with the Rainmakers.

With their title defence on the line and another chance for some travel to Provincials the reward, the Charles Hays Boys brought their A game to the court, taking control early and keeping the Kermodes off pace for much of the contest, taking the Zones with an 87 to 37 victory.

The Senior Boys will be making their way to Langley next week with the AA Tournament set to launch at the Langley Events Centre from March 4 to 7.
