Prince Rupert senior boys basketball team undefeated in Vanderhoof tournament

The Charles Hays Secondary School Rainmakers senior boys continued their undefeated season over the weekend.

The Charles Hays Secondary School Rainmakers senior boys continued their undefeated season over the weekend, taking first place in a multi-team tournament in Vanderhoof.

The team started off the tournament against  their counterparts from Smithers. When the final buzzer sounded, the Rainmakers took the 58-50 victory. Grade 11 forward Keenan Pahl was named the Player of the Game in the win.

The next game saw the Prince Rupert squad tip-off against the host team from Nechako Valley. Despite home court advantage, the Vanderhoof team were no match for the Rainmaker, who handily won 69-54. Grade 10 forward Justin McChesney was named Player of the Game for his play on the court.

The boys then came up against their toughest  challenge to date, facing DP Todd Secondary of Prince George — a team currently ranked sixth among all AA teams in the province. DP Todd took a solid lead into the second half, but Prince Rupert responded with a 14-4 run late in the game to pickup the 68-64 victory and remain undefeated throughout the weekend. Grade 11 guard Rosendo Maacol was named the Player of the Game in the final game of the weekend tournament.

Head coach Mel Bishop said he was impressed with how the team performed over the weekend and is optimistic for the remainder of the season ahead.

“The team played really well. Defensively, they were really good on the ball,” said Bishop.

Next up for the senior boys Rainmakers is a trip to the Lower Mainland to compete at the 2013 North Shore Invitational Tournament. Charles Hays will start off the tournament on Dec. 12 against Sentinel Secondary of West Vancouver. The tournament includes 16 teams from across the province competing in a double-elimination format tournament.
