The Valley Huskers took another loss Saturday at their first away game of the season at Hillside Stadium in Kamloops.

The Broncos reminded the Huskers of their last meeting two weeks before, this time beating them by a bigger margin, 45-15.

The Huskers put as many kicked points up as otherwise, with the sole touchdown run in by quarterback R.J. Begg.

The Huskers just couldn’t match the offensive output of the home team.

While their rushing games were almost evenly matched, it was passing where the Broncos dominated.

Kamloops threw for four touchdowns, with Chilliwack throwing four interceptions.

Kicker Dan Erickson hit 20 and 25 yard field goals for his contribution.

Corner Jason Ghag proved his game with six tackles and an assist, marking more than any defensive player in the game.

The Valley Huskers will travel to Westhills Stadium in Langford Saturday to take on the Westshore Rebels for the second of five away games.
