Loss to Rams ends Husker playoff hopes

The Valley Huskers ended their season 2-7-1 after a BC Football Conference loss to the visiting Langley Rams.

The Chilliwack Huskers ended the 2013 season with a loss, falling 59-24 at home Saturday to the Langley Rams.

The Huskers finished with a record of 2-7-1, good for fifth in the six team BC Football Conference.

They finished ahead of Victoria’s Westshore Rebels (2-8), and had the same record as the fourth place Kamloops Broncos.

But Kamloops moves on to the playoffs by virtue of tiebreakers.

A slow start found the Huskers down 17-0 to the Rams after one quarter.

Chilliwack’s offence roared to life in the second quarter, putting 17 points on the board. But Langley led 38-17 at the break.

The Rams piled on the points in the third quarter, building their lead to 52-17 before putting it into cruise control for the fourth quarter.

The Husker offence generated a surprising 319 yards of net offence.

Ty Derayos led the running backs with 48 yards on 12 carries, and  Misha Otanga had 42 yards on six carries.

Quarterback Cody Parray did good things through the air, completing 11 of 22 passes with three TDs.

In his final BCFC game, the Chilliwack native threw touchdown tosses to Cody Vinnish, Blake Draper and Dylan Boykowich.

Parray also threw a pair of interceptions, both returned for Langley majors.

Chilliwack’s Evan Foster brought one back 70 yards.

Brandon Klein had a 25 yarder.

Running back Nathan Lund led the Rams offence, carrying six times for 179 yards and three TDs.

His longest run was a 91 yarder.

Three Langley quarterbacks combined for a 10-of-17 passing line with three TDs and one interception.

Ram receiver Kyle Pich hauled in two touchdown tosses, with Malcolm Williams also finding the endzone. Kris Bush had the Husker interception.

Jerry Sidhu led the Chilliwack defence with six solo tackles and Boykowich came up with a big play on special teams, blocking a Langley punt.

Kicker Dan Erickson was good on a 28 yard field goal attempt.
