Okanagan maintains undefeated record at Rebels’ expense

B.C. Football Conference season wraps up Saturday in Langford

Okanagan Sun quarterbacks picked apart the Westshore Rebels secondary early and often, en route to a 51-10 victory in B.C. Football Conference play at West-hills Stadium.

The Suns’ three pivots, led by Cam Bedore, who threw for 233 yards and five touchdown passes on Saturday, amassed 415 passing yards overall and connected on 19 of 26 attempts to nine different receivers.

Okanagan jumped out to a 35-0 lead in the first quarter and coasted to their ninth straight win without a loss this season. The Rebels, who wind up their season this Saturday (Oct. 3, 3 p.m.) with the annual alumni recognition game at home against the Langley Rams, fell to 2-7.

With Talyn Davies in the saddle at quarterback all game, the Rebels did their best to mount an attack, but could only manage a field goal from Bryce Couture by halftime, when it was 45-3 Sun.

A bright spot came in the fourth quarter, when Davies and receiver Eric Williams connected on a 75-yard passing play for the home team’s lone touchdown.

Williams finished with 88 receiving yards on the day, while Davies favourite target, Hunter Lake, caught nine balls for a total of 79 yards.

All of the Sun’s touchdowns came through the air, with Thomas Huber and Kyle Kawamoto each hauling in two TD passes and teammates Pierre-Luc  Lord and Shai Ross adding one each.

Davies led the Rebels in rushing yardage with 39 on nine keepers, while Dillon Fortune was Okanagan’s top rusher with 80 yards on 10 carries.
