Rainmakers play tough but ousted

The Charles Hays Senior Boys Rainmakers hopes to win the British Columbia AAA High School Basketball Championship came to end.

The Charles Hays Senior Boys Rainmakers hopes to win the British Columbia AAA High School Basketball Championship came to end over the weekend — but not by much.

The Rainmakers went 0-4 in the tournament, but the record was far from indicative of the play.

Despite playing top-level competition, the Rainmakers were just a bucket here or there from taking a real run at the title.

The Rainmakers dropped their opener late Wednesday 65-63 to Abbotsford before hitting the court early Thursday only to fall 55-45 to Nanaimo. Again, they were back on the court early Friday but fell flat losing 81-74. Even at 0-3, the Rainmakers came back taking Richmond’s McNair Secondary to the final buzzer losing 77-76.

Prince Rupert’s Justin McChesney was one of only five players at the tournament to receive a Telus Scholarship.
