The Charles Hays Secondary School Rainmakers garnered their first win on the weekend.

’Makers earn split in Kitimat

The Charles Hays Secondary (CHSS) Rainmakers’ senior girls soccer team played in Kitimat this past weekend.

The Charles Hays Secondary (CHSS) Rainmakers’ senior girls soccer team was in action again this weekend, making their first appearance in Kitimat, resulting in a 5-0 loss against Mount Elizabeth Secondary. They bounced back against Smithers with a 2-1 victory.

Coach Kyla Ragan cited the strong result against Smithers as the team starting to gel.

“Our girls played two very strong games this weekend. They are learning to play together now and are starting to understand how to use each other’s strengths. Both games they started a bit flat but with encouragement from their teammates they were able to pull together in the end,” she said.

“On the defensive end, Hannah Wittchen played an excellent game and Becca Phillips really found her place on the field on the left side. We had Alexi Armstrong playing in all different lines and executing each position with ease.”

The Rainmakers’ first goal against Smithers came from Delaney Hubbert. Coach Ragan was pleased with the offensive zone coverage.

“She scored by keeping pressure on the goalie, and was able to slip one into the net in the first half against Smithers. Charlotte Kobza had a perfectly executed penalty kick for the second goal of that game. As well, Henzle Masocol’s constant demands from her team, for crosses and staying on their checks were met this weekend,” the coach explained.

“I am very proud of the girls’ progress and their development from the games.”

The athletes will be back in action next weekend, as soccer season continues.
