Westshore Rebels running back Johnny Quan

Rebels get some ‘super’ help trying for second straight win

Westshore squad looks to pull into tie for third with Kamloops

With a bye week helping heal up some nagging injuries, the Westshore Rebels juniors look to even their B.C. Football Conference record to 3-3 tomorrow at home against the Kamloops Broncos.

Having posted their most lopsided win of the season on Aug. 23, a 41-7 drubbing of the Valley Huskers, the Rebels return to Westhills Stadium for a 3 p.m. game against the Broncos, who sit in third spot at 3-2.

Heading into the game, several Rebels are among the league leaders in various offensive categories.

Quarterback Hunter Lake, the defending BCFC offensive player of the week, is sixth overall in rushing with 216 yards on 21 carries, while running back Johnny Quan is 12th at 173 yards.

Jordan Rodinsky and Nathan Leader sit third and fourth for receiving yards with 386 and 382, respectively, while Griffin Dear is 13th with 222 yards. Leader’s 23.9 yards per catch are tops in the league among receivers with 15 or more receptions.

Lake is also third in total passing yards (1,342) and touchdown passes (10) and fifth in passer rating (76.8 per cent).

The Rebels will be helped in spirit at least by the presence of the Superheroes of Victoria at the game. Players joined the local charity group for a fundraiser photo shoot for B.C. Children’s Hospital last weekend at Uptown.
