Huskers showing signs of improvement

The Chilliwack Huskers are still winless, but recent performances suggest they are getting better.

The Chilliwack Huskers played their best game of the 2012 BC Football Conference season Saturday, but it wasn’t enough in a 33-3 loss to the visiting Westshore Rebels.

Facing an offence that had put up 48 and 58 points in two previous games, the Chilliwack D did well to limit the damage.

Rebels running back Greg Morris topped 100 yards (145) and had two touchdowns, but he was far more dominant in the two previous meetings.

Victoria quarterbacks Mark Black and Jesse Herman combined to go 12 of 18 for 145 yards through the air.

Fikreiwnet Yitna had three grabs for 77 yards and Eric Eggleston had five for 57.

They had one TD apiece.

Jerry Sidhu led the Husker defence with seven tackles.

The Husker offence actually moved the ball in this one, generating 180 yards of net offence. Most of the yardage came via the right arm of quarterback Brady Churly, who completed 15 of 33 passes for 151 yards.

Josh Hayden led the pass catchers with six grabs and 67 yards. James Archer caught five balls for 50.

Chilliwack’s ground game remained nonexistent, posting just 29 yards on 16 carries.

Chilliwack is on the road this weekend, facing Kamloops.
