B.C. Football Conference season features 10-game balanced schedule

  • Mar. 25, 2015 11:00 a.m.

For the first time in four seasons, the Okanagan Sun will play a balanced schedule.

The 2015 B.C. Football Conference schedule released this week has the Sun opening its 34th season at home to the Westshore Rebels on Saturday, July 25.

The Sun will play 10 games this season, two against each conference opponent.

“I love the balanced schedule,” said Sun head coach Shane Beatty. “I truly believe the league will be much better this year.

“Victoria will be much better with J.C. (Boice) as the head coach and Doug Hocking as the defensive coordinator. Kamloops will be much better with Brad Yamaoka and the addition of Todd Graham. I’m stoked to get going and I look forward to opening with Victoria.”

From 2012 to 2014, the Sun played an unbalanced schedule, including three games each last year against Langley and Vancouver Island.

The Sun will gets its first crack at the defending BCFC champion Rams on Saturday, Aug. 15 at the Apple Bowl.

As in years past,  the first three Sun home games will be played on a Saturday night, under the lights with kick off at 7 p.m. against the Rebels, Rams and Huskers.

Following the Labour Day bye, the remaining two Sun home games will be Sunday afternoons at 1 p.m. (Sept. 13 and 20) against the Raiders and Broncos.

The final two regular season games, the Sun find themselves on the road in Westshore and Kamloops on Sept. 26 and Oct. 3.

Sun season tickets are on sale now for the 2015 season, see www.okanagansun.ca for more.

The Sun will hold their spring camp May 29 to 31.
