Preseason in Prince George

Chilliwack Huskers

The Chilliwack Huskers have been practicing for more than three weeks.

This weekend, they finally, they get to hit someone other than their own teammates, travelling to Prince George for a preseason game against Kamloops.

The B.C. Football Conference is considering the possibility of putting a team in PG in the not-too-distant future, and the preseason game is a way to gauge fan interest.

For several Huskers, the game is a homecoming.

Chilliwack head coach Luke Acheson has made a point of recruiting in Prince George since taking over the Huskers after the 2009 season.

The Huskers went 0-2 against Kamloops last year.

Chilliwack lost 26-13 at home Aug. 7 and 26-3 the following week in Kamloops.

The Broncos are the BCFC’s newest team, coming in as an expansion squad in 2007.

The Huskers host the Westshore (Victoria) Rebels at Exhibition Stadium July 31, with kickoff at 2 p.m.
