Langley Rams took a tough loss to the Valley Huskers in their first road trip of the season on Saturday, Aug. 6 at Exhibition Field in Chilliwack, falling 14-7.

It was their third loss in a row for the defending Canadian Bowl champions, who have had trouble stopping teams so far and their offence has been struggling.

Rams kicker Tato Ferreyro Araya had a good game, providing all seven points for Langley.

Ferreyro Araya booted a pair of field goals from 12 and 16 yards, missed one from 39 yards that still garnered a single, as well as catching a game-high eight passes for 120 yards.

Rams outgained the Huskers offence, but the Chilliwack defence held on for the win.

Huskers’ Jaiden Claassen recorded a game high eight solo tackles, intercepted a pass and recovered a fumble.

Kurtis Flynn added six tackles and had a sack.

Huskers scored a pair of rushing touchdowns behind Reece Wyke and Tyran Duval. Wyke carried the ball 19 times for 117 yards and the major. Quarterback Josh Janssen completed 13 passes for 106 yards.

Early in the season, Rams are currently sixth in the standings of the seven-team B.C. Conference of the Canadian Junior Football League, with the Westshore Rebels in first.

Next up for the Rams, a trip to Kamloops and the Broncos on Saturday, Aug. 20 at Hillside Stadium.
