Okanagan Sun stop Valley Huskers in BCFC semi-final

The Huskers dramatic turnaround season ended on the road at the Apple Bowl in Kelowna.

A hugely successful season for the junior football Valley Huskers has come to an end with a playoff loss to the Okanagan Sun.

The Huskers were in Kelowna Sunday, facing the BC Football Conference powerhouse at the Apple Bowl.

The Huskers lost 47-21 and finish 2018 with an overall record of 6-5.

Chilliwack’s team did some good things against the heavily-favoured Sun, producing 311 total yards.

Quarterback Julian Wytinck completed 18 of 38 passes for 251 yards, including a touchdown strike to Brandon Poulin.

He also ran for a major.

Unfortunately, the pivot was also intercepted three times, including a pick-six touchdown by Trey Adams.

The Huskers didn’t have a ground game to fall back on, with running back Von Richardson limited to 26 yards on seven carries.

Chilliwack’s other score came on a razzle-dazzle play, with wide receiver Anthony Dyck connecting with Poulin on a 54 yard TD toss.

GW Graham grad Treyvon Walsh had a productive day for the Husker D, producing an interception and a fumble recovery. Dakota Mathers, Remis Tshiovo and Jace Harden also recovered fumbles and the Huskers got quarterback sacks from Dawson Davis (two) and Daniel Mills.

Davis led the D with eight tackles.

The Sun move on to face the Langley Rams in next weekend’s Cullen Cup championship game.
