Nanaimo’s V.I. Raiders beat Valley Huskers 47-16 in Chilliwack

The V.I. Raiders travelled to the Fraser Valley and once they got there, they took to the air.

North Rainey caught seven passes for 186 yards and two touchdowns, while Mike West and Alex Bonnetplume also made two TD receptions each.

Defensively, Gevhahn McNally-Hardisty, Andre Gordon and Tyler Hill each had an interception. Nathan Cayouette led the Raiders with six tackles and Zach Taylor had five. Matt Hill and Doyle Westlund had sacks and Nils Haeni blocked a kick.

GAME ON … The Raiders take on the first-place Langley Rams this Saturday, Sept. 14, at 2 p.m. at Caledonia Park.
