Week 3 in the CJFL looked a little like this:

Westshore Rebels 45
VI Raiders 10

The Westshore Rebels continue to roll with a massive win over their island rivals the VI Raiders on Saturday night.  The offence put up 435 total yards including 324 through the air, mostly thanks to starting quarterback Te Jessie who accounted for 286 of those yards and threw three touchdowns.  Back-up quarterback Simon Hales connected on a 38-yard touchdown pass as well.   In all, four different receivers hauled in touchdowns including Kierran Poissant who caught six passes for 107 yards and Eli Nelms-Horton had a 75-yard catch and run major.

The Rebels special teams also got in on the scoring when Gerren Hardisty returned a kick-off 90 yards for a major helping the home side to a very lopsided win.

Over on the defence side Tarick Polius was impressive with four tackles and 1.5 sacks while Cordell Holder blocked a kick, had two tackles and half a sack. 

The only scoring the Raiders could muster was in the second quarter when quarterback Ben Chomolok found Andre Gordon for a touchdown and their kicker Sterling Henry connected on a 36-yard field goal.  Gordon caught a game high seven passes for 113 yards.

Defensively the Raiders would force a pair of interceptions and recovered a fumble, but it wasn’t enough in the loss.

This weekend the Rebels (3-0) will travel to Kelowna to face the Okanagan Sun (2-0) on Saturday night and the Raiders (1-2) are home to the Kamloops Broncos (1-1).

Valley Huskers 14
Langley Rams 7

It was a defensive slugfest on Saturday night in Chilliwack as the Huskers downed the Rams and kept them out of the end zone for their second win of the season.

The Rams outgained the Huskers offence, but the “D” held on for a massive win.  Jaiden Claassen was sensational for the Huskers with a game high eight solo tackles, intercepted a pass and recovered a fumble.   Kurtis Flynn had added six tackles and had a sack. 

Offensively the Huskers scored a pair of rushing touchdowns behind Reece Wyke and Tyran Duval.  Wyke carried the ball 19 times for 117 yards and that major.  Quarterback Josh Janssen was good when he needed to be completing 13 passes for 106 yards. 

The Rams seven points all came from the foot of kicker Tato Ferreyro Araya.  He booted a pair of field goals from 12 and 16 yards respectively and missed one from 39 yards that still garnered a single.  He also caught a game high eight passes for 120 yards.

This coming weekend the Huskers (2-1) will welcome the Prince George Kodiaks (0-2) for the second time while the Rams (0-3) enjoy a bye week. 

Kamloops Broncos 35
Prince George Kodiaks 20

The Broncos pieced together a very balanced attack to bring down the Kodiaks in the very first CJFL game ever held in Prince George. 

The visiting offence gathered 456 total yards led by quarterback Reid Vankoughnett who threw for 294 yards and tossed touchdowns to Kaleb Senz and Colton Meikle.  Senz hauled in four passe for a game high 102 yards, 75 of which came on one strike.   The ground game meanwhile added three more touchdowns led by Cameron Grzegorczyk and his 97 yards and two scores.  Chris Finden also tallied a major. 

The Kodiaks hosted their first CJFL game and scored 14 of their 20 points in the first half. Quarterback Liam Oczkowski threw for 215 yards and hit Jerome Erickson for a 35-yard touchdown strike. Their other two touchdowns came on the ground from Keanu Brown and Andrew Johnson. 

This coming Saturday the Broncos (1-1) stay on the road to visit the VI Raiders (1-2) and the Kodiaks (0-2) revisit the Valley Huskers (2-1).
