Okanagan Sun schedule unveiled for 2014

As was the case during the 2012 season, the Okanagan Sun will battle the Langley Rams and Vancouver Island Raiders a combined six times during the upcoming B.C. Football Conference campaign.

The conference recently released its 2014 schedule, which has the Sun opening up its 10-game season on the road against the Valley Huskers on July 26. Based on their finishes last season, the Sun, Rams and Raiders are in the top tier of the conference and will play three games against each other in an unbalanced schedule.

The Sun will get its first chance against the defending BCFC champion Vancouver Island Raiders on Aug. 9 at the Apple Bowl in the first half of a home-and-home set. The Sun will host five regular season games with two to those against the Rams and once each with the Raiders, the Westshore Rebels and Kamloops Broncos each.

Okanagan will also play five road games, travelling to Vancouver Island twice, Langley, Chilliwack and Kamloops.

Below is the complete Sun schedule for the 2014 season, as Okanagan plays four of its first five games on the road.
