The Valley Huskers held their own against the visiting Westshore Rebels until the fourth quarter Saturday at Exhibition Stadium. Losing 28-14, the Huskers were within a single touchdown’s reach most of the game, but couldn’t quite catch their opponents. Defensive tackle Jessie Smith played exceptionally with a QB sack and two blocked kicks. And while the offence of the huskers was more impressive on paper than the Rebels’, the home team gave the ball up three times. The Rebels returned two interceptions for a total gain of 116 yards.
