Huskers open 2013 BCFC season on road

The Chilliwack Huskers visit the Okanagan Sun to kick off the 2013 BC Football Conference regular season schedule.

The British Columbia Football Conference announced their 2013 regular season schedule Tuesday.

For the second consecutive season the BCFC will run an unbalanced 10-week schedule, with one notable difference.

The top-tier teams will face other three teams this season, leaving them less time to mop up on the cellar dwellers.

Last year’s league finalists, the Vancouver Island Raiders and Langley Rams, will face each other three times, with the Raiders hosting two.

The Valley, formerly Chilliwack, Huskers travel to Kelowna July 27, opening the regular season against the Okanagan Sun.

Their first home game comes one week later when they host the Kamloops Broncos. That game on Aug. 3 will be played at Townsend Park, with the artificial turfing of Exhibition Stadium still ongoing.

The Huskers will return to their usual home in week five (Aug. 31), hosting Victoria’s Westshore Rebels.

The Broncos are back in town a week later, and the Huskers play a third consecutive home game Sept. 14 versus the Sun.

The last home game is Oct. 5 versus the Langley Rams.

All Husker home games are on Saturdays, with four afternoon starts. The Huskers are looking to improve on last year’s 1-9 record. Chilliwack won their final game of the 2012 season at home, beating the Broncos 17–10.
