Comeback kids buck Broncos for preseason win

Chilliwack Huskers

The Chilliwack Huskers emerged victorious from their preseason opener on Saturday, edging the Kamloops Broncos 19-14 in Prince George.

The Huskers rallied from a 14-0 deficit to get the win, led by quarterback Adann Hendrickson. The starting pivot scampered for one of the Chilliwack majors.

Veteran tailback Ben Skerritt added another with Ty McConnell also finding the endzone. One of the TDs was converted.

More than 500 fans watched the game, a showcase event for the B.C. Football Conference.

Six Huskers, including defensive back Nick Wingfield, were playing back in their hometown.

“It feels great (to get the win) especially since we’ve got a whole new system on offence and defence that everybody is learning,” he said. “We executed pretty well today. A win like this shows that we’re on the right track and if we keep working hard it looks like good things will come our way.”

Chilliwack hosts the Westshore (Victoria) Rebels in the season opener, Sunday at Exhibition Stadium.

Kickoff is 2 p.m.
