Offensively, Ben Firth was the top performer with 80 yards rushing. Maxwell Mckinnon had 40 yards rushing and a touchdown.

The loss dropped their record to 2-3. On Saturday morning at SRT their Valley Community Football League playoff hopes will be on the line in a game against the Chilliwack Giants at 11:45 a.m.
