The West Kelowna Sun Devils knocked off the defending B.C. champion Kelowna Lions 60-23 on Sunday at CNC to capture the Southern Interior Football Conference junior bantam title.
After a tight first half which saw the Sun Devils leading 14-9, West Kelowna took charge in the second half outscoring the Lions 46-14.
Nate Humes rushed for more than 200 yards and two touchdowns, Ty Truong scored two majors and rushed for over 150 yards, while Nick Kopp scored three majors and ran for more than 100 yards.
“Our defense gave the Lions nowhere to run and nowhere to pass ,” said West Kelowna coach Chris Smith, “as the D line of Nate Humes, Jesse Sligtr, Spencer Lindholm, Nick Kopp, Mark Schuppener dominated the line of scrimmage while timely interceptions by Hunter Desson and Chris Smith shut down the Lions passing attack.”
The Sun Devils, who are 10-1 this season, will travel to Vancouver Island this weekend to take on the Victoria Renegades in the B.C. semifinal.
