Atom Seahawks defeated by Wolverines

On a wet Sunday afternoon, the Sooke Seahawk Atom football team lost to the Wolverines.

The Seahawk players are waiting for the team captains to return from coin-toss.

The Sooke Seahawks Atom team played on a rainy, muddy Sunday afternoon, on May 4.

This drenched game saw the Seahawks lose their first of the season to the Wolverines. With lots of tackles and quarterback sacks, the turnover-causing defense was led by birthday twin David “Goliath” Heslop.

Heslop was also recognized as Defensive Player of the game. He had one fumble recovery, one pass deflection, three tackles, and one quarterback sack.

Strong plays were also made by Spencer Logan, who had two sacks, and Riley Stratton, Jared Steele, and L.P. Gagnon who each had one sack.

Carrier, Nick Heslop, Lowden, and Davis recorded numerous tackles.

In spite of the strong defense, the team sputtered with its offense. However, the second half of the game started with birthday-twin Nick “fury” Heslop running a kick-off return for 68 yards, with lots of key blocks. You don’t get touchdowns without them! There was also one especially powerful block by Owen “roadrunner” Cheng, converted by Steele. Logan wedged the ball on numerous occasions getting 12-16 yard runs. There were sweeps by Cheng and Heslo in spite of missing a few key short-yardage situations. There was only one completed pass by Steele to Gagnon — with Carrier centering his team superbly.

Sadly, it just wasn’t their day on offense!

The next game is scheduled against Cowichan.
