There wasn’t much to choose from between the Westshore Rebels and Valley Huskers of Chilliwack in the B.C. Football Conference regular season. Both clubs finished 7-3 and tied for second place while splitting their season series 1-1.

The Rebels and Huskers will settle their regular-season saw-off Sunday in their BCFC playoff semifinal game at 3 p.m. at Starlight Stadium in Langford.

The Rebels had the better offensive output on the season with 345 points scored to the Huskers’ 268. The defences were about even with Westshore allowing 245 points on the season and Fraser Valley 246.

The undefeated regular-season champion Okanagan Sun (10-0) and fourth-place Langley Rams (5-5), the defending Canadian Bowl champions, met in the other semifinal game Saturday night at the Apple Bowl in Kelowna.

The semifinal winners will advance to the Cullen Cup BCFC championship game next Saturday at the home of the highest-remaining seed.

The BCFC champion will play the Ontario Football Conference champion Oct. 29 in the national semifinal with the winner advancing to the Canadian Bowl national championship game to be hosted Nov. 12 by the champion of the Prairie Football Conference.
