Nightmare season continues for Huskers

The Chilliwack Huskers are 0-4 and are finding life to be more difficult than ever in the BC Football Conference.

If the Chilliwack Huskers thought their winless 2010 and 2011 seasons were rough, they had no idea what was coming in 2012.

A 58-0 loss in Victoria Sunday left the Huskers at 0-4.

But it’s not even that they’re winless. Local junior football fans are used to that by now.

It’s the way they’re losing.

Cummulatively, the Huskers have scored 26 points this season (average of 6.5 per game) while surrendering 234 points (average of 58.5 per game).

There are no signs of progress, no indicators that the team is heading for anything but another 0-10 finish.

Coming into the season, Victoria’s Rebels were supposed to be a beatable opponent.

On Sunday, Westshore rolled up 608 yards in total offence, including 336 along the ground.

Rebels running back Greg Morris was a one-man wrecking crew, rumbling for 264 yards and four touchdowns on just 13 carries. Let us spare you pulling out the calculator and tell you he averaged more than 20 yards every time he touched the ball.

Victoria didn’t require a passing game.

Still, quarterback Mark Black threw a couple touchdown tosses, one each to Vinne Cannata and Catlyn Todorovich.

Todorovich topped 100 yards receiving (104) on four catches.

Tyson Plain was one defensive standout for Chilliwack, picking off a Black pass and returning it 29 yards. Brandon Vickers and Kris Bush made the stats sheet with fumble recoveries.

Chilliwack’s offence struggled, even by recent standards.

Chilliwack generated 37 yards of net offence, all of it coming in the first half. In the second half, the Huskers lost one yard.

Quarterback Braden Churly went three of 11 passing for 16 yards and one interception. He was the team’s leading rusher with 25 yards on four carries.

Things could get real ugly for the Huskers this weekend as they travel to Nanaimo to face the defending Canadian champion Vancouver Island Raiders. The teams clash Saturday at 2 p.m. at Caledonia Park.

The next home game is Sept. 15 versus Langley.
