PHSS tops lahal lineup

Port Hardy Secondary beats defending champions Fort Rupert to top lahal finale.

Home side Port Hardy Secondary School were crowned victors at the annual lahal tourney last week.

Ten teams took part in the First Nations game, which pits teams against each other in a bid to win the other team’s sticks.

One side takes two pairs of bones, a marked and unmarked bone in each pair, and mixes them out of sight of their opponents. The other side then tries to determine which hand holds the unmarked bone.

Guessing correctly wins the bones, but a stick is forfeited for an incorrect guess.

Defending champions Fort Rupert made it to the final but were beaten out by the team from PHSS.
