Huskers stunned by Sun

Chilliwack Huskers, BC Football Conference

The Chilliwack Huskers put three touchdowns on the board, but surrendered a whole lot more in a 48-21 loss to the Okanagan Sun on Saturday.

Playing an afternoon game at Exhibition Stadium, the home team saw its B.C. Football Conference record slip to 0-9 with just one game remaining in the 2011 season.

If the Huskers don’t win a road game in Kamloops this weekend, they’ll have gone two full seasons without a win.

The Huskers stayed close to the Sun (8-1) through 15 minutes, trading touchdowns with the second ranked team in the BCFC.

The Sun started to pull away in the second quarter, building up a 27-14 halftime lead.

The visitors led 34-21 through three quarters before hitting cruise control in the fourth.

Adann Hendrickson went the distance at quarterback for the Huskers, going 17 of 40 passing for 185 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Chilliwack native Cody Parray had the touchdown grab, the only points the offence produced while generating 185 total yards.

The ground game continued to sputter. Hendrickson scrambled for 94 yards on seven carries. Beyond him, running backs Misha Otanga and Mohammed Ellahib combined for seven yards on eight carries.

The other Chilliwack majors came from the defence. Rookie cornerback Tanner Hamade continued his outstanding season, taking two interceptions back for TDs. The Abbotsford native is a strong candidate for BCFC rookie of the year.

Despite Hamade’s best efforts, Kelowna still managed to generate 550 total yards of offence.

Quarterback Jeremy Mraovic completed 14 of 28 passes for 304 yards, throwing touchdown tosses to Tommy Howes, Dan Turek and Arman Bokitch.

Bokitch led the Sun ground game with 18 carries for 132 yards and two majors.

Evan Polack carried eight times for 44 yards and one touchdown. Sun kicker Steven McFadyen added two field goals with a long of 34 yards.

The Huskers are in Kamloops Saturday to face the Broncos (1-8). It is the second meeting of the season between the two clubs.

Kamloops took the first matchup, winning 37-14 in Chilliwack in week two.
