It’s with great pride that Village Food Market’s Sooke Seahawks pre-atom football team had a succesful Sunday on the grid-iron in Langford at Bear Mountain Stadium against the Nanimo Bombers.
The Seahawks earned a victory, with a 38-6 final score.
Offence took off fast with taking only five plays from junior coach Torin Keoughan’s marauding offence to score their first touch down of the game by fleet-footed L.P. Gagnon.
His first of two, followed on the day. Four more touch downs during the next three quarters, led by Spencer ‘Take No Prisoners’ Logan, hauling three or four Nanaimo defenders on numerous runs.
Flying Jared Steele with his second touch down of the campaign and Thomas ‘Tommy Gun’ Lowerison taking a hand-off from first time.
Quarter back Caleb ‘Gun ‘em Carrier’ ran for his first touch down of his Seahawk career.
Many huge blocks led to these touch downs including ‘Mighty Mike’ Allman in his first Seahawk game ever with his mighty seven year old frame, Thomas Lowrison, lineman Quinn Macdonald, Kaedin Rheault, and Hunter Swift, who also ran his first convert point.
On defence Manny ‘The Man’ Ratcliffe had three fumble recoveries and two excellent runs on offence as well.
Defence again was led by player nine, Spencer Logan, who had one sack, causing two fumbles and disrupted the Nanaimo offence constantly.
Super Sian Cyr anchored the offence at center and turned in a good amount of blocks on defence.
Tye Linquist, Luther White, Jacob Barney and Finn Rogers rounded up an incredible day stopping the bombers from bombing us.
Next game is Sunday April 29.
