Sun slam Huskers in BCFC season opener

The Valley Huskers are off to a rough start in BC Football Conference play, losing 65-0 in their Sunday opener in Kelowna.

The Valley Huskers were demolished in their 2013 BC Football Conference opener, losing 65-10 on the road in Kelowna.

The Huskers and Okanagan Sun squared off Saturday at the Apple Bowl, and the visitors got off to a solid start.

Through one quarter, the Huskers held an edge in possession time that translated to a 7-0 edge on the scoreboard.

Danton Nagorski, owner of one of the great names in football, got the Husker touchdown on a 15 yard run.

His score capped off an impressive 19 play drive that included four third down conversions.

But things fell to pieces in the second quarter as the Sun put 37 points on the board.

They added two TDs apiece in the third and fourth quarters, scoring in just about every way imaginable.

Alex Bradley and Dillon Fortune collected rushing majors.

Jesse Dendall, Tommy Howes and Thomas Huber reeled in TD passes from Sun quarterbacks Cam Bedore (two) and Theo Deezar (three).

Landon King, with a 30-yard return of a blocked punt, and Robbie Yochim, with a 10-yard interception return, scored the Sun’s other majors.

The Huskers got three points on a 36 yard Dan Erickson field goal.

The Huskers have their home opener Saturday against the Kamloops Broncos, the only team they beat last year.

Game time is 1 p.m. at Townsend Park and tickets are $10 at the gate.

This game will include a special on-field tribute to former Husker Kyle ‘Sunshine’ Osterlund, who passed away unexpectedly before last season.

DJ Rockadile is performing before the game, and as Evolution Dance Studio performs at half time.

Everyone’s favourite apes, Bongo and Tongo, will be in the stands leading the cheers.
