This Sunday April 14, Sooke’s pre-Atom Seahawks football team squared up against Oak Bay where they faced down Gordon Head. Although they lost this game, the Seahawks played a stronger game than last week.

The team has a limited number of players, so there is very little time to rest and recover on the sidelines. For the most part, the players are on for almost the full duration of the game, so they demonstrated excellent stamina.

“The boys played a great game, with a better understanding of plays and routines” writes Emily Lock in a game summary.

Last week, the pre-Atom Sooke Seahawks faced down the Saanich Wolverines at Copley Park in Saanich, Sunday April 7 at 11:00 a.m.  The Wolverines dominated the game, closing with 37:0.
