Fancy football footwork as Spartans win against Nanaimo

Coach Andy reporting on yesterday’s Peewee (nine to 11-year-olds) game in Nanaimo.

Hello football fans! With over 20 players playing for the Spartans in the Westshore, Coach Andy reporting on yesterday’s Peewee (nine to 11-year-olds) game in Nanaimo.

Pictured is Caleb “budder” Carrier with one of his many blocks after centering the ball, while Spencer “the tank” fought his way to three touchdowns on the day. Carrier enjoyed a whopping 90 per cent snapping success for the day — no small feat at 10-and-a-half years old.

Not to mention great ball carries and blocking from Hunter “amazing” Swift. Jared “leg-of-Steele” kicked five converts and place kicking the ball so far down the field it was in another postal code. Both Steele and Logan got numerous down-field tackles, causing fumbles, and stealing the ball back (the only time stealing is OK).

Jared, on a kick-off himself, ran over 35 yards and tackled the ball carrier. Final score was Spartans 42 to Nanaimo 0. Missing on the day (due to illness) AvAn “pitbull” Wickheim. What a great day for these Sooke athletes.
