Huskers still winless after Kamloops clobbering

Chilliwack's Valley Huskers are 0-4 with dim playoff hopes after a lopsided defeat at Kamloops Saturday.

Chilliwack’s Valley Huskers fell to 0-4 Saturday, losing their first road game of the year in Kamloops.

The host Broncos demolished the Huskers 45-15 at Hillside Stadium, taking advantage of seven Chilliwack turnovers.

Husker quarterbacks Dylan La Prairie and R.J. Begg combined to throw four interceptions (three by La Prairie).

One of those was returned 20 yards for a major by Bronco defender Mike Ochoa.

The Huskers fumbled the ball away twice and also had a turnover on downs.

Working with short fields, the Broncos still rolled up 550 yards of net offence. Kamloops quarterback Steve Schuweiler passed for 328 yards and four touchdowns. Devin Csincsa caught two of them, with Jesse Neufeld and Derek Yachison also finding the endzone.

Running back Jacob Palmarin picked up 113 yards on 10 carries and Connor Whitelaw had a rushing major.

Kamloops kicker Aaron Smit booted a 14 yard field goal and added six converts.

Turnovers aside, the Husker offence did OK, generating 412 net yards.

Running back Benedict Muhima had his best game of 2014, topping the century mark with 121 yards on 15 carries.

Felix Kaanon led the receiving crew with 95 yards on five carries.

R.J. Begg had the only offensive major.

Kicker Dan Erickson booted field goals of 20 and 25 yards.

Cody Parray had the other Chilliwack touchdown on a 10 yard interception return. Hayden Jeffery also had an interception, and Owen Roche came up with a fumble recovery. Jason Ghag led the Husker D with six solo tackles.

Chilliwack stays on the road this weekend, visiting Victoria’s Westshore Rebels for a Saturday afternoon (1 p.m.) tilt at Westhills Stadium.
