Saturday, August 15 – Apple Bowl
Kickoff at 7PM
After a successful 52-0 shutout against the Valley Huskers, the Langley Rams (2-1) head to Kelowna to face the undefeated Okanagan Sun (3-0) in a rematch of the 2014 BCFC Cullen Cup championship game.
The Rams are looking like a strong offensive unit this season, led by running back Nathan Lund who rushed 145 yards on seven carries for a pair of touchdowns last week. Most impressively, the Rams scoring was spread across a myriad of running backs and receivers, with Devin Logan and Jason Patko each rumbling for a score. Other touchdowns were scored by first year receivers Seye Akinsanmi and Bobby Pospischil, the latter who led the team with four receptions for 96 yards. On the other side of the ball, the defence was extremely effective, containing the Huskers to only nine yards of rushing. Jesse Cervas recovered a fumble for a score, while Brock Gowanlock and Shaiheem Charles-Brown both recorded a pair of sacks.
Last week, the Sun recorded 396 yards of net offence but had to rely on kicker Thomas Huber five times to finish drives in their 27-3 win over the Raiders. The lone touchdown scored by the team was thrown by Cam Bedore to Kyle Patchell, who had five receptions for 89 yards, while former SFU receiver Kyle Kawamoto led the team in receptions, recording four catches for 105 yards. On defence, the Sun effectively contained the Raiders quarterback, collecting ten sacks with Ryley Butler and Lucas Machado recording three and two, respectively.
Will the Rams be able to battle a dangerous Sun defence to hand the team their first loss of the season, or will they maintain their winning streak? Tune in this week to find out!
