Langley Rams run past visiting Huskers

The Valley Huskers were just the tonic the Langley Rams needed.

Coming off a 31-10 loss to the Okanagan Sun the weekend before, the Rams took care of business against the winless Huskers this past Saturday at McLeod Stadium, by rolling to a 46-7 victory.

The win improves the junior Rams’ record to 5-2 on the season while the Huskers from Chilliwack remain winless at 0-7.

Langley sits tied for second with the 5-2 Kamloops Broncos in the B.C. Football Conference standings. The Sun are on top of the conference with a 6-1 mark.

The Vancouver Island Raiders (3-4), Westshore Rebels (2-5), and Huskers round out the BCFC standings.

On Saturday, the Rams’ ground game was effective, with running back Nathan Lund racking up 88 yards and two touchdowns on just four carries.

In total, eight different Rams had at least one turn carrying the ball.

The other Rams’ running major came from Jordan Traversy.

Langley quarterback Jordan McCarty connected on nine of 17 passes for 204 yards and one touchdown, and he was picked off once.

He zoned in on two receivers: Daniel English, who caught five balls for 124 yards and a touchdown, and Malcolm Williams, who made four catches for 80 yards.

Rams kicker Steve Thomas made good on all three of his field goal attempts from 37, 32, and 13 yards away. Thomas also made all five of his converts.

On special teams, John Beckerleg returned a punt for a touchdown.

In a losing cause, Huskers quarterback Dylan LaPrairie acquitted himself well, connecting on 16 of 34 passes for 164 yards and a touchdown to Tyron Ledingham.

Next up for the Rams is their final home game of the regular season this Saturday, Sept. 20 against Nanaimo’s Vancouver Island Raiders. Opening kickoff at McLeod Stadium is 4 p.m.
