Westshore Rebels 45

For the first time in their franchise history the Rebels beat the Raiders and it was the offence that was outstanding scoring 28 points in the second half.   It was a well balanced attack combining for 669 yards of total offence, 346 yards on the ground and 343 through the air.  Running back Jamel Lyles carried 32 times for 270 yards and a 50 yard touchdown, while quarterback Scott Borden made his first CJFL start and finished with 343 yards and three touchdown passes.

The Rebels defence was equally dominating not allowing a point in the second half.   They forced three turnovers as Shaun Robinson recovered a fumble, made a game high six tackles and had half a sack.

The Raiders offence struggled against the Rebels defence.  Dustin Rodriguez caught a game high six passes for 111 yards,    On the defensive side Gehvan McNally-Hardisty recovered a fumble and returned it 95 yards for a touchdown.

The only other Raiders major was a 65 yard punt return by Josh Paisley.

The Rebels (2-0) will hit the road for the first time on Saturday night and face the Okanagan Sun (2-0) while the Raiders (1-1) will host the Valley Huskers (0-2) on Saturday afternoon.

In a game filled with dark clouds, rain and lightning, oddly it was a team called the “Sun” that prevailed.   The visitors gained 375 yards of total offence, gaining 195 through the air and 192 on the ground.  Quarterback Keith Zyla threw his fourth touchdown pass of the season and ran one in as well.  In all the Sun scored five touchdowns on the ground, two of which by Kasey Russell.
