Mason Brown / QB / Westshore Rebels
25 of 39 for 275 yards 3 TDS 1 INT
1 reception for 8 yards
7 carries for 81 yards
The Westshore Rebels found themselves in must win territory Saturday at home to the Valley Huskers. And while the afternoon was a disappointing one for the home team as a 52-38 loss eliminated them from play-off contention it was not due to lack of effort on quarterback Mason Brown’s part.
Brown had his best overall game, statistically at least of the season throwing the ball and moved the ball with his feet as well as he did all he could to claw his club into the post- season.
This is Mason’s and the Rebels first BC Lions Player of the Week
Darby Kwan / LB / Kamloops Broncos
Seven tackles / 1 assisted tackle
The Kamloops Broncos 2018 season has been well documented for all it’s struggles as the team has limped to an 0-9 season.
But in a year of surprises that made the season as interesting as it has been for the 0ther 5 BCFC clubs, the Broncos almost pulled off a miracle upset of the 1st place Okanagan Sun.
The Broncos led 10-8 until late in the contest thanks to a stubborn and aggressive Broncos defence that was led in no small part by linebacker Darby Kwan. He was around the ball all afternoon for a Broncos team that showed this team doesn’t intend to quietly go away.
This is the first BC Lions Player of the Week for the Broncos this season
Brandon Poulin / Returner / Valley Huskers
Two kick returns for 138 yards and 1 TD
Three punt returns for 12 yards
The Huskers were in a shootout with the Westshore Rebels and special teams in no uncertain terms were the reason the Huskers came away with the W.
Every time the Rebels scored the Huskers answered back with a strong kick return and two of them went for touchdowns. In the second quarter, after a Rebels touchdown gave them a 7-3 lead, Poulin answered with a 96-yard gallop to the end zone to give his club a 10-7 lead and set the tone for what the day would be like for the hometown Rebels.
This is Poulin’s 2nd BC Lions Player of the Week of the season
