Game 1 Recap: Broncos 72 vs Huskers 17
Game one is in the books and the Kamloops attack started off the 2015 campaign with the same blistering tempo it showed as Canada's best offense in 2014.
Steve Schuweiler took no time to shake the rust off, as he went to work hitting his favourite target Yachison for four scores, Csincsa for two and the one that kicked off his seven score day to Bernier. After that he made way for fellow fifth year pivot Whitelaw, so our two scores of his own up, one each to rookie fullback Tubajon and speedy receiver Jordan Angove. Jake Palmarin continued where he left off last season with a thunderous ground game, routinely knocking back would be tacklers, showing great burst out of his cuts, and putting a major of his own on the board from 40 yards.
The defense showed that this team isn't a one trick pony with a stellar game of its own, setting the tone on the back end was Chris Rosa with a few punishing hits as new defensive ends McCarty and Lawson took away passing lanes and batted down balls all game long.
Rookie kicker James Barnsley tacked on a few points of his own, consistent with converts and a 30 yard field goal to round out the scoring.
Coach Yamaoka puts his first game away, in Chilliwack, 72-17.
