Huskers seek upset win over surging Sun

The Valley Huskers face a tough task trying to knock off the BC Football Conference powerhouse Okanagan Sun.

Mired in a three game losing streak, the Valley Huskers tackle a tough opponent Saturday afternoon at the newly turfed Exhibition Stadium.

The Okanagan Sun are in town for a BC Football Conference clash, as the Huskers (2-3-1) embark on the stretch run of death.

Over the next four weeks, they’ll face the Sun (4-2) twice.

The other two weeks will pit them against the defending Cullen Cup champion Langley Rams, who lead the league at 5-1.

“It’s a very tough stretch for us,” Huskers head coach Tyson St. James admitted. “We’ll need to execute perfectly and avoid dumb penalties, and I expect to get at least one win out of this.”

Officially, the Huskers have beaten the Sun this season, taking a 1-0 decision Aug. 7. On the field, the score favoured the Sun 65-10.

But, the Sun dressed a player who was property of the Hamilton Hurricanes of the Ontario Football Conference.

He was ineligible.

The Sun forfeited.

Kickoff Saturday is 1 p.m.
