Hard Sun beats down on Langley Rams

The Rams started strong but couldn’t keep up with the Sun.

The Langley Rams had a good start to their game against the powerhouse Okanagan Sun, but by the second period Saturday they were trailing.

The Rams began their home game at McLeod Athletic Park by taking the lead 3-0 in the first quarter, and holding off the Sun’s offence.

They also gained more ground than the Sun throughout the game.

But the Sun began striking back in the second period.

They managed to block two kicks by the the Rams, and they frustrated Langley’s quarterback Colby Peters. Cole Klughart and Shaun Robinson each managed to sack Peters during the first half.

The Rams did manage to put together several strong plays. Peters finished 18 of 30 passes for 213 yards, and tossed a touchdown pass to Khalik Johnson.

Johnson caught a game-high nine passes for a total of 136 yards.

Nathan Lund, a Rams running back, scored the team’s other touchdown, and Kyle Clarot, hero of the Rams victory over the Huskers last week, had an interception.

On the Sun side, quarterback Nick Wenman finished 11 of 25 passes for 214 yards, threw a touchdown pass to Kyler Mosley, and ran one in himself.

Running back Kelton Kouri rushed for a pair of majors.

The game ended with a score of Sun 34, Rams 17.

The Sun remains undefeated for the season at 3-0, while the Rams swallowed their second home field loss and stand at 1-2.

Next weekend, the Rams visit the 2-1 Westshore Rebels.
