U13 basketball game:

Kitimat RCMP officers, Haisla Firefighters and parents took on the Haisla U13 basketball team at the Haisla Recreation Centre on October 11th. The adults took an early lead in the very spirited contest, however the U13’s put on a big push in the second half of the game and ended up winning with a score of 44-32. This was in preparation for their upcoming game against another northern team. Fun was had by all, and the youth certainly gave the adults a good run for their money. Good luck on your current season Haisla U13’s, thank you for the invite! The adult MVP for the game will be given to Kitimat RCMP Cpl Darren Gross.
