Broncos win thriller at Hillside, eye playoff berth
In what will go down as one of the wildest games in Kamloops Broncos’ history, the B.C. Football Conference franchise earned a win and took a massive step toward its first-ever playoff berth.
Grady Chalmers of the Broncos blocked an extra-point with no time on the clock to seal a 37-36 win for Kamloops over the Westshore Rebels of Victoria.
It appeared the kick would be retaken after the Broncos looked to have been called for too many men on the field, but the penalty flag was eventually picked up and the Broncos were deemed victors, moving their record to 2-4-1.
Kamloops relinquished a two-touchdown lead in the game’s final two minutes, leaving the crowd stunned and wondering if their beloved and much-maligned Broncos were up to their old tricks.
The Broncos needed to split a two-game set with the Rebels (1-6) in order to stay alive in the playoff race.
They will look to sweep the series in Victoria on Sept. 28.
Next up for Kamloops is a home tilt against the Okanagan Sun (5-2) on Saturday, Sept. 21. Game time is 7 p.m. at Hillside Stadium.
