Caledonia Kermodes win two in Rupert

The first weekend of Terrace's senior high school basketball season is over, and the Kermodes are off to a good start

The first weekend of the senior high school basketball season is over and after the dust settled the Caledonia Kermodes stole two games from the hometown Charles Hays Rainmakers in Prince Rupert on  Saturday, Dec. 1 at the Charles Hays gymnasium.

The Rainmakers and Kermodes were both missing players due to the BC High School Volleyball Championships but the shortened benches continued the rivalry and battled it out on the court.

The Kermodes won game one by a score of 81 – 60 but the game was actually much closer than the score appears. Game two saw a closer—and more defensive—game as the Rainmakers held a 3 point lead at the half before the Kermodes clawed back in the final frame for a 55-47 win.

Kermodes were led by Reegin Maki, Patrick Kurek, Kynan Finnie and Brennan Jay while Chris Mair and Drew Robinson were the anchors for the Rainmakers.

The Kermodes and Rainmakers will return to meet again at Caledonia next weekend, the 14th and 15th, after competing in a tournament in Vanderhoof this weekend.
