Campaign winds up for pre-atom ‘hawks

Peninsula squad gets the edge

The season came to an end this past Sunday for Village Foods’ Sooke Seahawks Pre Atom football team. The wind-up came at MacAdam field in Duncan. 

The ferocious Cowichan Bulldogs came out chomping and snarling their way to a first possession touchdown – quickly followed by a jet-like, swerving run by Simon Herold tying the game at 6. 

Touchdowns were traded over the next two possessions, Sooke’s being a weaving run by speedster Ben Power – again the MVP of the game. 

The ‘dogs pounced on a Seahawk fumble and scored on the next play. 

In the second half Sooke’s amazing quarterback and offensive player of the game, Louis-Philipe Gagnon swept and tossed with a finishing run by gritty wing-back and fleet-footed Kieran Franklin. The major was followed by a two-point screen pass conversion done to perfection to “sticky-hands” Ben Power. 

There was many a good run by B-back Spencer Logan again carrying two or three ‘dogs nipping at his heels. Spencer also made many a good tackle and received defensive player of the game honours. 

The Defense was led by our always solid and powerful centre and team captain Jacob Lamontagne, aided by Josh Danielson, Caleb Carrier, Manny Ratcliffe. In the end the Sooke boys dropped a 33-21 decision to the up-Island ‘dogs. 

This brought to an end a great season. Many thanks to our sponsor Scott Logan of Village Foods, the Sooke News Mirror, all the parents, coaches, manager and fans – God bless you all – see you next season at the field!      

–Coach Andy Carrier
