The Okanagan Sun will look to build on 10-0 regular season with a meaningful playoff run.

Sun a perfect 10, playoffs on deck

Okanagan defeats Kamloops to go 10-0 in the BCFC, will play Broncos again in semifinal Oct. 18

The 2015 edition of the Okanagan Sun is in some rather elite company.

Shane Beatty’s crew is just the fourth Sun team in history—and first in 11 years—to post a 10-0 BCFC regular season mark.

The Sun secured its record of perfection with a 51-38 victory over the Broncos Saturday in Kamloops.

“It’s a testament to the hard work the guys put in during the off-season and all season long,” Sun defensive lineman Jonas Gering said of his team’s record. “We came together as a family and worked hard towards the same goal. It’s a great accomplishment for our team.”

While the Sun will take some time to savour their distinction, the next and most immediate goal will come into focus.

Okanagan, which now sits three wins away from a national championship, will host the Broncos on Oct. 18 in the BCFC semifinal.

“We’ve accomplished our first goal, but now that’s over and it’s time to move on,” he said. “Each week is a new chapter and we have three more steps to take. We’re focusing on the next game and nothing more.”

The winner of the BCFC semifinal will move onto the Cullen Cup final the weekend of Oct. 24 and 25 against the winner of the other semifinal between the VI Raiders and Langley Rams.

Meanwhile, in Saturday’s win in Kamloops, running back Abdi Nasir-Abdi enjoyed a career game with four touchdowns, carrying the ball 17 times for 86 yards. Cam Bedore connected on three TD passes with Kyle Kawamoto.
