Too little too late for the Okanagan Sun on Saturday falling 32-21 in the Cullen Cup to the Westshore Rebels.
After falling behind 32-0 in the third quarter, the Sun started to show some life. Keith Zyla took over at quarterback and punched in from a yard out to get on the board. He then threw a touchdown pass to Sharmar Donelson on the last play of the third quarter.
Kyler Mosley scored the final touchdown for the Sun with a three yard run with just under 10 minutes to play in the game.
However eight turnovers by the Sun helped the Rebels and their field position. They would tally 323 yards on the ground as Jamel Lyles rushed 23 times for 161 yards and had a touchdown.
Quarterback Ashton MacKinnon was named Offensive Player of the Game finishing 9 of 17 for 173 yards and threw three touchdowns. He was also outstanding running the ball. MacKinnon threw majors to Tyvon Blake, Birhanu Yitna and Trey Campbell.
Pierre-Luc Lord was named the Special Teams Player of the Game.
The Rebels will now host their first Canadian Bowl on Saturday November 12 against either the Saskatoon Hilltops or Calgary Colts.
