Raiders rough up Huskers

BC Football Conference, Chilliwack Huskers

Vancouver Island Raiders defensive back Cody Biduke

The Chilliwack Huskers surrendered 356 rushing yards and 75 points on Saturday, losing a laugher to the Vancouver Island Raiders.

Chilliwack made the long trip to Caledonia Park in Nanaimo, and found themselves blitzed by the still-unbeaten Raiders (8-0). Nanaimo led 16-0 after one quarter and 40-0 at the half.

Four Nanaimo ball-carriers topped 50 yards, led by Alex Jobson, who had seven carries for 120 yards and a touchdown.

Aston Galloway (two for 60, two TDs), Taylor Favel (one for 55) and Jordan Botel (four for 54, one TD) helped the Raiders chew up big chunks of yardage on the ground.

Andrew DeLeon had a 41 yard touchdown run on his only carry of the game and Favel added a 66 yard punt return for a major.

Nanaimo quarterback Jordan Yantz didn’t throw often, but was effective when he did.

Yantz completed eight of 14 passes for 141 yards and two majors.

Backup Dustin Pederson threw two passes in mop-up time, completing both with one TD.

Nanaimo’s leading receiver was Dustin Pederson, with four catches for 78 yards. Andrew Smith, Whitman Tomusiak and Marshall Cook reeled in touchdown tosses.

Chilliwack’s offence managed 150 net yards on the day.

The rushing game generated 34 yards on 12 carries.

The passing game generated 161 yards as quarterbacks Adann Hendrickson and David Hollinshead combined to complete 14 of 31 attempts with three interceptions.

Dylon Chapdelaine, Brandon Larocque and Cody Biduke had the picks for Nanaimo, with Spencer Riche adding a fumble recovery.

Local lads Dylan Boykowich and Cody Parray contributed to the Chilliwack attack. Boykowich led all Husker receivers with four catches for 52 yards.

Parray caught one for 20.

With the loss the Huskers record slipped to 0-8, with just two games remaining in the 2011 season.

The Huskers host the Okanagan Sun Saturday at 7 p.m. at Exhibition Stadium before finishing on the road Oct. 8 in Kamloops.
