Prince Rupert junior boys basketball squad defeat Terrace

The Charles Hays junior boys and senior girls basketball teams were in action this weekend as high school basketball heated up.

The Charles Hays junior boys and senior girls basketball teams were in action this weekend as high school basketball in the region heated up.

The junior boys played back-to-back games against the Caledonia Kermodes of Terrace and came away with a pair of victories. In the morning game the Rainmakers took a 53-38 victory and followed that up with a 40-28 win in the

afternoon.

According to coach Kevin Sawka, the team is really beginning to click on the court as the season really gets underway.

“Our offense was a bit scattered at times, which happens at the start of the season. Defensively we’re really improving. In the second game the boys held Terrace to two points in the second quarter and six points in the third, and any time you can do that it is impressive,” he

said.

“There were some really good instincts happening out there. It’s a  close knit group of guys and you can see that on the court, they all have each others back and that will only improve.”

While noting strong games from starting point guard Rosendo Masocol and Perry Terrell, Sawka noted the team has a lot of depth this year.

“There were a lot of great contributions from the bench. They kept us in it during the first game and didn’t miss a beat in the second game,” he said.

This weekend the team will leave for Prince George on Thursday to compete in a regional tournament.

The senior girls, under the coaching of Sara Barrow were also in action this weekend, but were unable to pick up a win. The girls were down a number of players due to injuries and illness.
