Levi Weaver of the Chilliwack Huskers goes up against a Langley Rams player at Exhibition Field on Saturday.

Huskers better but still winless

BC Football Conference, Chilliwack Huskers

If you’re looking for moral victories, then Chilliwack’s 20-7 loss to the Langley Rams on Saturday night was a step in the right direction.

If you’re looking for actual victories, then the local B.C. Football Conference team is still looking for a win, sporting a record of 0-7 with three games to go.

The Huskers were better on the scoreboard at Exhibition Stadium, giving the coaching staff some positives to build on.

Quarterback Adann Hendrickson had one of his better games of the year, going 16-of-37 passing for 208 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Hendrickson added another 52 yards on seven carries, finishing as Chilliwack’s leading rusher. Receiver Adam Leggott had perhaps his best game of the year, catching three balls for 72 yards.

The Chilliwack D had unquestionably its best game of the year, yielding 307 net yards while only allowing Langley into the endzone twice. The Rams only had 67 yards of offence in the first half, and led 6-0 at the break on two field goals by Nick Taylor.

Langley’s O moved the ball more effectively in the second half. Quarterback Brandon Leyh scored one Ram major on the ground.

He hooked up with receiver Nick Downey for the other, going six of 13 passing for 93 yards on the day.

Chilliwack’s lone touchdown came in the fourth quarter, with Peter Johns snagging a Hendrickson pass.

The Huskers hit the road this weekend, travelling to the Island to face the unbeaten defending BCFC champion Nanaimo Raiders.

The last home game is Oct. 1 at Exhibition Stadium versus the Okanagan Sun before the Huskers finish on the road, visiting Kamloops Oct. 8.
