Okanagan Sun 49
Valley Huskers 7
The Sun stay undefeated as they ran wild on the Huskers on Saturday afternoon in a lopsided victory that saw them gain 306 yards on the ground and 493 yards of total offence.
Running back Jevon Garwood led the attack with 98 yards on 10 carries and scored two touchdowns. Aidan Wiberg also got into the endzone as did Tristen Peddle. Meanwhile the aerial assault saw quarterback Dominic Britton complete 13 of 15 for 192 yards and threw two touchdowns to Noah Bymak.
The Sun defence was outstanding with five sacks and four turnovers. They held the Conference’s leading rusher Reece Wyke to just 48 yards, Kemarr Bishop had a pair of interceptions and Dawson Puk added another.
The Huskers were quiet on Saturday with their lone touchdown coming in the third quarter. Quarterback Josh Janssen found Dhag Mora for the score.
Next weekend the Sun (7-0) host the Langley Rams (4-4) and the Huskers (5-3) will enjoy a bye week.
Langley Rams 19
VI Raiders 14
Down 7-5 at the half, the Rams came back to beat the Raiders on Saturday afternoon outscoring them 14-7 in the second half.
They would do most of their damage on the ground chewing up 250 yards. Kairo Hassan gathered 88 yards on four carries and Derek Best added 86 yards on 14 carries. Linebacker Cole Barron lined up in the Rams jumbo package and punched the ball into the endzone from a yard out.
Quarterback Trey Jones completed 10 passes for 146 yards and found Best for a touchdown out of the backfield.
Defensively Barron led the way with six solo tackles while his team collected five sacks and forced four turnovers, all of them were on downs.
The Raiders offence was held to 191 total yards but did manage a couple of scores. Quarterback Ben Chomolok threw a 10-yard touchdown strike to Maren Bradbrook and also ran in a touchdown to account for the scoring.
Next weekend the Rams (4-4) visit the Okanagan Sun (7-0) and the Raiders (1-7) host the Westshore Rebels (5-2).
Kamloops Broncos 47
Prince George Kodiaks 17
The Broncos collected a lopsided win over the Kodiaks at Hillside Stadium this past Saturday and quarterback Reid Vankoughnett was simply outstanding.
He threw three touchdown passes to Colton Meikle on only nine completions for 289 yards. He also ran for three touchdowns on four carries, accounting for a total of six majors.
Over on the defensive side the Broncos forced six turnovers, five of them interceptions. Keegan Curtis had three of those picks and Nolan Marsden-Beck added another and five tackles to lead his team.
The Kodiaks did move the ball through the air to the tune of 275 yards, but the five interceptions hurt. Quarterback Sam Sabine found Jerome Erickson for a touchdown and running back Quinn Neukomm scampered three yards for a major.
On Saturday these two will play the second half of the home-and-home as the scene shifts to Prince George where the Kodiaks (1-6) will be waiting for the Broncos (3-4) to arrive.
