The Westshore Rebels eclipsed the Okanagan Sun in a battle for first place Saturday night in Kelowna – Aug 19, 2019

The Okanagan Sun were unable to win last night’s contest on stellar defence alone, as the team struggled offensively.

The 2-0 Sun faced the 2-0 Westside Rebels and got off to an unfortunate start when quarterback Alex Douglas threw an interception early in the contest.

The Sun’s defence shone bright, countering the team’s offensive woes with several interceptions throughout the game.

In Saturday’s low-scoring affair, the Westshore Rebels finished with 16 points, the final six coming from two field goals.
