With the Sun entering their bye-week, head coach Jamie Boreham said that the time off will be good ahead of their highly anticipated next game against the conference-leading Langley Rams on Sept. 8.

“It’ll be a great test and a great chance for a bounce-back game for us,” said Boreham

The first-year coach said that the team will need to focus on team execution on all sides of the ball, including special teams, in order to be successful.
