The Prince George Kodiaks get another crack at the Valley Huskers on Saturday night.

Three weeks after the Huskers handed them a convincing 31-5 defeat July 23 in Chilliwack, the Kodiaks are back on the road, still seeking the expansion franchise’s first B.C. Football Conference win.

The youthful Kodiaks (0-2) were much improved last week in their home debut at Masich Place Stadium but came out on the losing end of a 35-20 decision at the hands of the Kamloops Broncos.

The Huskers (2-1) are coming off a 14-7 win last Saturday in Chilliwack over the Langley Rams. Prince George will be back on home turf om Saturday, Aug. 20 for a rematch against the Huskers.

Saturday’s game in Chilliwack stats at 7 p.m. and you can download the live pay-per-view webcast. The game will also be broadcast live on 99.3 FM Rewind Radio with Ethan Ready behind the play-by-play mic.

The Kodiaks, a team of 17-23-year-olds, are still seeking billet homes for some of the players during the 10-game season, which wraps up with playoffs in November. For more information call 1-705-817-7858 or email nadine.cope@koparadmin.ca.

The Kodiaks are organizing a youth football tackle league which starts on Monday. Kids from kindergarten-Grade 7 are eligible for the league. Practices will be held at school fields in the Hart, College Heights, Bowl and Vanderhoof, with games played at Masich Place Stadium. A Quesnel youth tackle football league open to kids in Grades 4-7 also starts on Monday. Here's where to register.

There are two weeks of the Kodiaks’ summer camps still to come, for kids aged 7-13. The five-day camp sessions include games and activities each day from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Cost to register is $150.
