Rainmakers rugby finds success in Burns Lake

The Charles Hays Secondary School Rainmakers rugby sevens squad played in Burns Lake this past Saturday.

The Charles Hays Secondary School Rainmakers rugby sevens squad played in Burns Lake this past Saturday.

In round-robin play, the Rainmakers beat Burns Lake 19-10, and continued that momentum, beating Terrace 26-14. The third game saw the ‘Makers lose a tight one to Smithers 15-5,  earning them a spot in the semifinals.

Then, CHSS took on Burns Lake again. It was a tightly contested match, but the Rainmakers were able to squeeze out the win, 14-7.

The ‘Makers were pretty beat up and sore at this point. Though their round robin match with Smithers was tight, the final proved to be much different. The Smithers Gryphons rolled to a lopsided result of 52-0.

Outstanding play was achieved by star wingers Cody Schaeffer and Ryley Main, with Titan McMaster and Chase Woelders providing stellar offence and defence up the middle. Jason Rioux notched two tries in his debut in Sevens for the Rainmakers.

Sevens is a game that relies on speed, endurance and skill; with an emphasis on the ability to maintain a high level running throughout the game. It is played on the same field dimensions as 15 person rugby and soccer matches.
