Sooke Seahawk Atoms duking it out against Gordon Head Raiders.

How the ball spins: Sooke football news

A summary of all the Sooke Seahawks games from last weekend.

The Sooke Seahawks Atom division football continued their winning ways on Sunday to improve their record to 4-0; their opponents were the Gordon Head Raiders. Sooke’s defence once again swarmed like bees to every Gordon Head ball carrier not allowing the Raiders any chance of scoring on this day.

Led once again by defensive captain Gabe Nelson with hard hitting tackles all over the field. Safety Malaki Allen also had many solid tackles.

Other notables with solid defensive efforts were Trysten Schroeder, Brody Berfolo,  Michael Widner, Dayton Planes and big Seahawk Skyler Rossiter smashed through the Raiders O-line time and time again.

On the offensive side of the ball, with Captain and center Mikey Lundell and powerful guard Xzander Adams home sick, the Hawks turned to first year player Brynn Phillips to step into the Center position.

With only 10 minutes practicing snaps for his new position Phillips handled the duties like  an experienced veteran rising to the occasion when his team needed him.

With Adams out, up stepped rookie Angelo Avila to fill in an unfamiliar position.

Rossiter and Widner again with strong O-line work and Mitchell Rose again continues to impress blocking whistle to whistle on every single play.

Scoring for Sooke was Nelson with three touchdowns, Quarterback Christian Kaisinger with two touchdowns and Allen with a touchdown and many big runs. Running backs Dayton Planes and Travis Robertson blocked extremely well and had solid runs themselves.

Coaches attribute the early season success to how hard this team works in practice. They take that hard working effort with them into the games proving time and time again hard work pays off. Next Saturday the unbeaten Seahawks travel to Nanaimo hoping to keep the success going.

As for the Warriors, they went 3 and 0 with Saturday’s romp over Nanaimo; local Sooke players now playing for Westshore figured prominently in the win-Carrier snapping at 100 per cent success.

Aided  by his loyal mountainous guard-Jacob LaMontagne who had three players on him when he played defence, Jared Steele with numerous tackles at Safety-Acoya Williams standing big in O-line-story of the day goes to Riley ”the leg” Stratton who, with no notice or practice, stepped up to fill in for our absent kicker.

Numerous 40-yard booming kicks on kick-off-2 converts helped add to our score and keep those gnawing Lions at bay and deep in their territory.

Well-executed game plan by the Warriors and our Sooke boys.
