Reagan Doucette had 13 carries for 225 yards and two running touchdowns, and added a 44-yard touchdown reception. Jasnoor Dhaliwal had 16 carries for 135 yards and a touchdown.

Quarterback Alex Ho went 9-for-23, for 199 yards and a major, and also scored a running touchdown on a four-yard plunge.

In the passing game, Brandon Ho had two catches for catches for 50 yards, and Zach Toews five catches for 65 yards .

“Offensively we played well, despite a two-week layoff,” said coach Paul Gill. “Putting up the offensive totals we did – we as a staff were pleased.”

The defence was led by Toews with eight tackles, and Hurricane stalwarts generated six sacks, three interceptions and a dozen tackles for losses.

“We play our biggest game of the year this Friday against crosstown rival Robert Bateman. With only five league games, every game is so important.”

Friday at 1 p.m. the Hurricanes host the Timberwolves.

Quarterback Mario Narte threw for 181 yards on 6-for-10 passing. He hit Chris Brake on a 24-yard pass for a major. Keenan Godden was a favorite target, and caught three passes for 84 yards.
