Sooke players dominated once again in the Victoria Spartans 22-6 win over Nanaimo Harewood Dawgs in junior bantam football action Saturday.

After overcoming a slow start and down 6-0, Jared Steele ran a 55-yard sweep and Sam Lowden punched it in from the three-yard line behind center Caleb Carrier.

The defence then stepped up with a “pick 6” interception and touchdown by Owen Cheng.

Still on defence, Steele wreaked havoc tossing much larger opponents, Spencer Logan trampling O-line players.

Quarterback Will Gorchonov added a 65-yard bootleg touchdown to finish off the scoring.

Simon Hales kicked two converts and kept the Dawgs’ offence away with booming punts and well placed kicks.
