Rebels’ QB wins second award despite loss

Hunter Lake passed and ran with heart against Broncos

He tried to do it all to help his Westshore Rebels beat the Kamloops Broncos last weekend at Westhills Stadium.

Quarterback Hunter Lake’s mighty effort fell just short, as the Rebels lost 24-14, but he was rewarded this week by being named the B.C. Football Conference’s B.C. Lions Offensive Player of the Week for a second time this season.

Lake threw for 381 yards, completing 21 of 41 passes, and two touchdown passes, to Griffin Dear and Jordan Rodinsky.

Lake also ran 10 times for 115 yards as the home team tried valiantly to get back into the win column.

The Rebels, now 2-5 on the season, head to Kelowna this weekend to take on the league-leading Okanagan Sun (6-1). With the final playoff berth still up for grabs and three games left, the Rebels will need at least two wins to overtake the Vancouver Island Raiders (3-4).

The Rebels play the last-place Valley Huskers next weekend in Chilliwack then finish off with a game in Nanaimo against the Raiders that could well decide fourth spot. The Raiders have a pair of tough games in a row, against Langley and Kamloops, before the season finale.
