The home team lost 28-6 to the defending Cullen Cup champions, getting their points on a pair of field goals by Dan Erickson and Leiland Kelodanski.

Huskers head coach Tyson St. James was impressed with his team’s effort.

“The team is looking good and I am very happy with their ability to stop the Rams from scoring in the second half,” he said. “The team is definitely ready for the start of the regular season.”

The Husker home opener is Aug. 3 versus the Kamloops Broncos, with a 1 p.m. start at Townsend Park.

The Huskers will be using that field until mid-September, with their usual home at Exhibition Stadium being renovated.
