The Sooke Home Hardware Seahawks Peewee football team hosted its first home game of the season, facing the talented Nanaimo Redmen last Sunday.
This season the Seahawks’ home field is Bear Mountain Stadium, home to the Westshore Rebels football program.
A skilled Seahawks offence poked away at the Redmen’s soft defence, but the Redmen’s kicking teams and trick plays were the advantage.
Seahawks quarterback Brady Greenwood connected with runningback Jacob Arnaud for a sweet, 56-yard touchdown (a 48-yard run after the catch). Greenwood has completed seven passes in ten attempts with no interceptions over the last two games.
Aiden Wood, Alex Campbell, and Miguel LaForge stood strong on the defensive line and Richard Innes led the linebacker corps, but the Redmen’s outside running game was too strong and the Seahawks succumb to their first home loss of the season.
The Seahawks head to Windsor Park to challenge the Gordon Head Raiders this Sunday at 3 p.m.
