Sun sets on Husker hopes

Chilliwack Huskers
BC Football Conference

The Okanagan Sun rolled up 433 yards of total offence and put 42 points on the scoreboard in a one-sided 42-7 rout of the visiting Chilliwack Huskers on Sunday.

With the loss, the Huskers saw their regular season record dip to 0-6, and they are closing in on two full years since their last B.C. Football Conference win (28-25 over the Vancouver Trojans on Oct. 3, 2009).

On Sunday, the home side used a lethal ground game to grind the Huskers into dust. Arman Bokitch led the Sun with 13 carries, 104 yards and one touchdown.

Steven Doege turned in the Jerome Bettis line with two carries, two yards and two touchdowns.

If there was a bright spot for the Huskers, it was the pass defence, with limited Sun quarterback Jeremy Mraovic to 131 yards, completing 11 of 22 attempts.

Mike Friend reeled in a touchdown pass from Mraovic.

Chilliwack cornerback Tanner Hamade supplied the only Husker points with a 47 yard fumble return for a touchdown.

Chilliwack’s offence failed to reach the endzone and managed a meagre 161 yards, only five of those coming from an ineffective ground game. Husker backs carried 15 times for an awful average of .3 yards per carry.

Making his first start, quarterback David Hollinshead threw 19 times, completing 12 for 161 yards and two interceptions.

Kelowna’s Carson Park ran one of those picks back 18 yards for a score.

Hollinshead’s favourite target was veteran tailback Ben Skerrett, who had two catches for 59 yards, one of those a 39 yarder.

Chilliwack natives Dylan Boykowich and Cody Parray each caught two balls for 25 yards.

Chilliwack’s search for a win continues Saturday night at 7 p.m. as they host the Langley Rams at Exhibition Stadium.
