The Westshore Rebels visit to Langley on Saturday was a painful follow-up to the team’s B.C. Junior Football conference opener two weeks ago.
The Rebels suffered a sobering 69-10 loss to the Langley Rams, dropping the Langford-based club to 0-2 on the season.
It doesn’t get any easier as the Rebels host the Okanagan Sun (2-0) at Westhills Stadium on Saturday (Aug. 10). The Sun have outscored their opponents, the Valley Huskers and Vancouver Island Raiders, 82-13 in two games.
Running back Emanuel Juma, a first year player from Windsor, Ont., scored the Rebels’ only touchdown against the Rams and led both teams in rushing with 104 yards on 13 carries, including a 59-yard ramble.
The Rebels slowed the bleeding in the second half, limiting the Rams to 32 yards rushed and 57 passed, down from the Rams’ 429 yards in the first half.
Kick off Saturday is 4 p.m.
