Sun quarterback Cam Bedore tossed five TD passes in the first quarter of Saturday's BCFC game against Westshore.

Bedore throws five as Sun buries Rebels

Okanagan goes to 9-0 on BCFC season with easy win in Victoria

It was over pretty much as quickly as it began.

The Okanagan Sun scored 35 points in the opening quarter, then rolled to a 51-10 victory over the Westshore Rebels Saturday in BCFC action in Victoria.

The Sun, now 9-0, is a win away from locking up an unbeaten regular season in 2015.

Quarterback Cam Bedore unloaded for five touchdowns passes in the first 15 minutes of the game—two to Thomas Huber, two to Kyle Kawamoto and another to Pierre Luc-Lord.

It was the first time in his junior career that Bedore had thrown five TD passes in a game, let alone in one quarter.

The 22-year-old W.J. Mouat grad said the scoring outburst was a product of another solid effort by the entire Sun offence.

“I think as we’re getting later on in the season, the offence really clicking,” said Bedore. “All aspects are getting better, we’ve studied a lot of film and we’re exploiting defences better.

“We’ve been getting great catches from our receivers,” he added, “our running backs and O-line have been doing a great job…it’s the whole offence.”

Fellow Sun QB Josiah Joseph added a nine-yard touchdown pass to Shai Ross in the second quarter.

The Sun piled up 561 yards in total offense, including 415 in the air.

The remainder of the Sun’s points came on three field goals from Thomas Huber, who now has 121 points this season, 11 short of the Sun’s all-time record of 132 set by Steven Shott in 2010.

On defense, Sun linebacker and reigning BCFC defensive player of the week Keagan Hughes picked up where he left off with three tackles, a sack and a knockdown.

The Sun will look to close out the BCFC regular campaign at 10-0 when they visit the Kamloops Broncos Saturday night. An Okanagan win would set up another meeting between the teams Oct. 18 at the Apple Bowl in the conference semifinal.

The Sun has gone 10-0 four times in team history, the last in 2004.
