Huskers score in the air, still can’t nab victory

The Valley Huskers couldn’t quite get their rushing defence or offence together Saturday night, losing 49 - 33 to the Kamloops Broncos at Exhibition Stadium. The Huskers passing game gained them the most traction, with wide receiver Tyron Ledingham (second in the league with 300 receiving yards) catching the most yards of the game. But despite two rushing touchdowns for Chilliwack, it was an unbalanced ground game. Bronco Aaron Morran, league leader in rushing yards, scored two touchdowns and shared the majority of the Kamloops running game with teammate Jacob Palmarin.
