Valley Huskers try to avoid 0-10 in BCFC season finale

The Huskers (0-9) host the Kamloops Broncos (1-8) Saturday at 1 p.m. at Exhibition Stadium.

The last chance for the Valley Huskers to avoid a third straight winless season is Saturday afternoon when they host Kamloops at Exhibition Stadium.

The Huskers (0-9) and Broncos (1-8) kickoff at 1 p.m., meeting for the second time this season.

The first wasn’t a good one for the Huskers, who opened the season back on July 29 with a 41-8 loss at Kamloops.

Chilliwack is coming off a lopsided home loss to Victoria’s Westshore Rebels last weekend. The visitors scored 25 second quarter points en route to a 42-17 win, led by quarterback Scott Borden.

The Rebel QB was quietly efficient, completing 14 of 23 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns.

Borden found Dusan Greenaway and Austin Lindo-Brow for scoring strikes and Victoria got rushing majors from Trey Campbell and Jeremie Drouin.

The Rebels added a defensive touchdown from Daniel Clarke, who intercepted a pass from Husker pivot Noah Falconer and ran it back 63 yards.

Victoria’s other points came off the foot of kicker Kyle Clarke, who booted five converts plus field goals of 29 and 37 yards. He settled for a single on a missed 50 yarder.

Chilliwack’s offence struggled against the tough Victoria D, generating 130 yards of net offence.

Falconer threw 19 passes, completing five.

One was a 57 yard touchdown toss to receiver Marius Anghel, but Falconer also served up interceptions to Daniel Clarke (for the TD), Brandon Gandrie and Robbie Lowes.

Nicolae Nica saw action in relief of Falconer. One of his three completions (on 13 attempts) was a 12 yard touchdown pass to DeAndrey O’Connor.

Keegan Vicklund led the Husker ground game with 32 yards on 10 carries.

The Husker defence had some good moments.

Desmond Jeanson came up with an interception that he returned 40 yards and Alex Zamora and Keishon Joseph both had fumble recoveries.The pass rush counted four quarterback sacks, two by Tyler McStravick and one each by Daniel Kabongo and Travis Dietrich.

James Moar led the D with five solo tackles.

Chilliwack’s special teams produced two blocked kicks, by Jeanson and Joseph.

— The B.C. Football Conference is conducting all-star voting and two Valley Huskers are up for consideration.

Defensive back Desmond Jeanson leads the team in tackles with 38 total tackles, has two interceptions and one forced fumble.

Ball-hawking DB Danny Harris has three interceptions, five passes defenced, a fumble recovery and 26 total tackles.
