Rebels double up Huskers

Chilliwack Huskers
BC Football Conference

The final score looked better but the end result was another loss as the Chilliwack Huskers dropped a 28-14 decision to Victoria’s Westshore Rebels on Saturday.

Chilliwack’s struggling B.C. Football Conference squad saw their record slip to 0-3.

Victoria was led offensively by 19-year-old running back Niles Goguen.

Goguen rolled up 62 yards rushing on just six carries, adding another 40 yards receiving for 102 yards of total offence.

His efforts helped Victoria’s offence overcome an otherwise sloppy effort punctuated by two interceptions, two fumbles and one blocked field goal attempt.

The Rebels led 9-0 early in quarter two on a two-point safety and a 19 yard touchdown run by quarterback Cat Todorovich.

Victoria kicker Quinn Van Gylswyk boomed a couple kickoffs into the endzone for singles as the Rebels carried an 11-0 lead into halftime. The Huskers trailed 13-0 early in the second half before a 15 yard touchdown run by Adann Hendrickson cut  the deficit in half.

Mark Black replaced Todorovich behind center, leading Victoria on two crucial scoring drives to put the game away.

The backup QB threw a touchdown toss to Goguen, then found Eric Eggleston on a 22 yard catch and run.

Hendrickson led Chilliwack on a late eight play 90 yard drive, throwing a five yard touchdown pass to Jake McKinnon to wrap up the scoring, and make the final score more presentable.
