The Westshore Rebels came up against an inspired home team in Kamloops on Saturday, losing 38-9 to the Broncos in B.C. Football Conference play.

A late second-quarter safety gave the visitors their only points in a first half that ended 17-2 for the Broncos.

Rookie quarterback Jordan Rodinsky started for the Rebels, but gave way to veteran Hunter Lake in the third quarter.

The third-year Rebel connected with Nathan Leader on a  31-yard touchdown pass just 3:05 into the half that was converted and cut the Kamloops lead to 17-9.

It was all Broncos after that, as Stephen Schuweiler threw two TD passes and handed off for another six-yard score to put the game out of reach.

This week the Rebels get ready for their home opener this Saturday (7 p.m.) at Westhills Stadium against the Vancouver Island Raiders, 44-36 losers to Langley Rams last weekend.

It’s military appreciation night, with half price admission to all military members with cards. Visit westshorerebelsfootball.com for more information.
