JENNA HAUCK/ THE PROGRESS Ryan Beaubien (in green) and the Valley Huskers hosted the Prairie Football Conference Winnipeg Rifles last season, but the 2017 BC Football Conference schedule doesn’t include any out-of-province opponents.

Valley Huskers host Langley Rams in 2017 BCFC home opener

The Huskers start on the road, visiting Kamloops July 29 before coming home to face the Rams.

The Valley Huskers will kick off the 2017 BC Football Conference season on the road.

The junior football squad visits the Kamloops Broncos in a week-one matchup July 29 at Hillside Stadium before returning home for two straight games.

The Husker home opener is Aug. 5 as they host the Langley Rams at Exhibition Stadium. The Vancouver Island Raiders pay a visit the following weekend.

There are no out-of-province opponents on the 2017 sched. The Prairie Football Conference Winnipeg Rifles traveled to Chilliwack last year, winning 35-0, but that experiment seems to have been shelved.

As in past years, the Huskers will play 10 games, two apiece against the Broncos, Rams, Raiders, Okanagan Sun and Westshore (Victoria) Rebels.

BCFC playoffs start Oct. 14-15 with the Cullen Cup set for the weekend of Oct. 21-22.

The BCFC champion will face the PFC champ the following weekend and the winner of that game will take on the Ontario champ in the national title game.
