Charles Hays Senior Boys Basketball team set for zones

The senior boy Rainmakers are preparing for the Northwest Zones championships this weekend.

The senior boy Rainmakers are preparing for the Northwest Zones championships this weekend and are entering the tournament with momentum following back-to-back wins in Terrace on Feb. 15-16.

On Saturday, Charles Hays left no doubt about the victory in the first game as they defeated their counterparts from Caledonia 73-62. Leading the way for Prince Rupert was Grade 10 student Justin McChesney with 16 points followed by Rosendo Masocol with 14 points.

The second game, however, came down to the final buzzer as the Rainmakers came from behind and got a last-second basket to complete the sweep of Caledonia with a 70-69 victory. The top scorers for the game were the same as the first match, with Masocol putting in 19 points and Justin McChesney netting 15 for the team.

The boys will travel to Smithers this weekend  hoping to wrap-up the season by qualifying for provincials in Langley in mid-March.

Look for results from the zones competition in next week’s issue of the Northern View.
