KAMLOOPS — The Broncos have never defeated the Okanagan Sun in the history of the program and it's not likely to happen on Saturday night when they host the undefeated Sun. 

Kamloops is 1-6 on the year, losers of six in a row, while Okanagan is 6-0-1, blanking the Broncos 36-0 in Kelowna in August.

Head Coach Brad Yamaoka says this weekend is an opportunity to play some of the younger players and give them some valuable experience. 

"We want to see where some of the guys are at," said Yamaoka. "We're going to get some looks from younger guys that maybe wouldn't have got a chance if we were in a playoff run."

Yamaoka added that he hopes the Broncos can end the season on a positive note. 

"We're still trying to win football games," he said. "If we can win the last three games, we'll be in good shape. Those are the things we have to focus on. If we can get better and go into next season with a bunch of positives out of this one, in the offseason it'll help with recruiting. You just got to stay positive."

Kick-off between the Broncos and Sun goes at 6 p.m. Saturday at Hillside Stadium.
