Sooke Village Food Markets Seahawks Atom football team fought a touchdown-to-touchdown battle against the gnarly fangs of the Cowichan Bulldogs. With plenty of good kicks by Riley Stratton (#71) and special teams led by him, he did not allow any field gain on kick-off returns. Offense was anchored at centre by Caleb Carrier (#2). Quarterback Jared Steele pitched to Kieran Franklin (#68) who ran another 60 yards with incredible downfield blocking from Thomas Lowerison (#79), only to be tackled at the eight yard line. On the next play, Steele ran a bootleg run for a touchdown. Kicking a two-point conversion added to the lead.

After a Bulldog touchdown, Steele pitched to Hunter Nicks (#67) who zigged and zagged his way with plenty of good blocking to our second touchdown of the half.

Nicks also caught a hook pass and plenty of good sweeps and runs by Owen Cheng, Spencer Logan, and Ben Power.

Defense sputtered a bit and the next two touchdowns belonged to Cowichan. The last quarter had both teams fighting. Defense was led by Ben Power, L.P. Gagnon, Grayson Hoolaef, Keegan Young and Quinn MacDonald.

The final score was Bulldogs 20 to Sooke’s 14. Next Saturday’s first playoff is going for the coveted silver cup.
