Sun drubs Huskers, rookie DB ties team record

Okanagan remains undefeated with 71-7 B.C. Football Conference win over Chilliwack

The entire B.C. Football Conference had a hunch Saturday night’s game at the Apple Bowl in Kelowna would be a mismatch.

The assumption couldn’t have been more accurate as the unbeaten Okanagan Sun manhandled the winless Valley Huskers 71-7.

The Sun, now 4-0, scored nine touchdowns against the Huskers (0-4), including six in the first half.

But the biggest story came from Sun rookie defensive back Aldrich Berrios, who recorded four interceptions to tie a team record, first established by Darby Ray in 2003.

Berrios also recovered a fumble as the Huskers turned the ball over an astounding 11 times (seven interceptions, two fumbles, twice on downs).

Nick Wenman made his third straight start at quarterback for the Sun who rang up 38 points in the second quarter.

Wenman threw four first half touchdowns passes, one each to Nate Anderson, Robbie Rodrigues, Spencer Schmidt and Liam Crane. Kyler Mosley and Carter Gordon scored rushing majors to make it 46-0 at the half.

The Sun generated 409 total yards through 30 minutes before pulling back in the second half. They still finished with 569 total yards, including 338 on the ground.Running back Joseph Okenlola accounted for 133 yards on just nine carries, reaching the endzone twice.

The Huskers offence posted miserable numbers for a fourth straight week.

Quarterback Noah Falconer completed 10 of 23 passes for 124 yards, but also served up three interceptions. Nicolas Nica came on in relief, threw nine passes and had four of them picked off.

Shut out in their previous two games, the Huskers finally scored a touchdown, courtesy receiver Marius Anghel on a pass from Nica. Overall they’ve still managed just 15 points on the year.

Anghel was a bright spot on a dark day with two catches for 99 yards.

The ground game continues to be a major problem for Chilliwack.

Garrett Fedak was the leading rusher this week with just 33 yards on six carries. Collectively, the team rushed for 47 yards on 15 carries.

Defensively, Keishon Joseph had an interception for Chilliwack and Mason Peleck led the Huskers with eight tackles.

The team visits Victoria’s Westshore Rebels (3-1) this weekend.
