Peewee Seahawks lose close game of 10-8

Young Seahawks played Wildcats in 'nail-biter' game

The Sooke Home Hardware Seahawks peewee football team was on the road again last week and faced the Peninsula Wildcats squad in nail-biter game.

Despite a Seahawks gladiator effort, the result was decided in the last play of the game as Peninsula scored a two-point safety to win 10-8.

The Seahawks run defence and special teams dominated the Wildcats. Richard Innes had a 50-yard punt return and the Seahawks kick off team smothered the Wildcats returners and nearly recovered a fumble. Defensive linemen Miguel LaForge, Ethan Agar, Aiden Wood, Tyson Bastone, Matthew Thomson and Richard Innes walled up the Wildcats inside run game, while linebackers Matthew Holmes, Tristan Gallant, Alec McKenzie, and Eddie George controlled the outside. The Wildcats has a strong pass game but Tie Boake made a key interception late in the fourth quarter to keep the game close.

Jacob Arnaud scampered for a 75-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter for the Seahawks and Aiden Wood tapped in the extra kick convert (which counts as two points in the PeeWee division).

The coaching staff is extremely proud of the team. It was the first time the team had played nine-man football – which was a result of Peninsula having too few players on the roster – and they did it with a lot of class and heart.

The Seahawks host their first home game of the season this Sunday at 3:00 p.m. at Bear Mountain Stadium versus the Nanaimo Redmen.
