Sooke’s Atom Seahawks finish the year with a “Stellar” performance in their game against the Ladysmith Steelers. The game was lead by all-star quarterback Jared “man of” Steele. He successfully ran a “read-option play” three times. Sooke scored five touchdowns. Riley Stratton and Spencer Logan both charged up the gut on seven-yard runs. Nick Heslop zigzagged his way for 25 yards. Owen Cheng took a reverse hand-off from Heslop and ran 40 yards. Jared had a great downfield “pancake block.” And Steele had a strong side bootleg touchdown of his own!

With many a first down sweep-and-run, AvAn Wickheim moved the ball along with great blocking. On offence, first year lineman Zander — with Filgate, Stratton, Youla, and Davis — ran well. The league-leading defence allowing only one first down. Logan, Stratton, Carrier, and Steele had numerous sacks and tackles.

The tackle of the game for the second week in a row went to Pitbull Wickheim, who made a picture-perfect open-field tackle on a speedster from Ladysmith, which surely would have resulted in a touchdown early in the game.

Gagnon, Carson “crusher” Montague, Testa, David Heslop, and Davis tackled and charged the o-line.

The final score was 32-0 for Sooke. The Atom boys measured their play, and when the game started to get rough, our young men got rougher and stood up for their teammates. Gagnon, Steele and Logan lead the way.

It was a great season, and injury free.

The playoffs happen this weekend against long time cross-town rival, Saanich. It will be a barnburner for sure!
