Langley Rams are bound for the Cullen Cup, following their 45-15 win over the Okanagan Sun Saturday in the BCFC semifinal at McLeodAthletic Park stadium in Langley.
In what amounted to a rematch of the 2018 Cup, the Sun capitalized on a Rams opening kickoff fumble and took an early 7-0 lead but the Rams dominated the rest of the game.
It was a 7-7 tie game with touchdowns by both teams by the end of the first quarter, but in the second quarter, Rams scored twice more to open up a 21-8 lead and never looked back.
Fresh off his record-setting regular season run, Rams running back Andrew Pocrnic accounted for two touchdowns during the game, carrying the ball 24 times for 190 yards.
Maximillan Joseph had 100 yards on 12 runs.
Rams rushed for 358 yards in total.
Colby Peters scored on a one yard run and threw touchdown passes of 30 and 40 yards to Khalik Johnson.
Ryan Barthelson got one for the defense and Jayden Shielan rounded out the scoring for the Rams with six converts and a 13 yard field goal.
Rams defenders held the Sun offense in check with five interceptions, Barthelson had two while Nathan Murray, Isaiah Okoli and Sebastian Reid each had one.
Nicolas Sorace sacked Sun quarterbacks twice and Caleb Abraham recorded one.
Langley Rams will host the Westshore Rebels (who were 17-7 winners over the VI Raiders) in the Cullen Cup next Saturday Nov. 2.
Kickoff is 2:30 p.m. at McLeod Athletic Park (It was originally set for later in the day, but has been rescheduled).
