Peewee Seahawks shutout by visiting bulldogs

The Sooke Peewee Seahawks football team couldn’t get their offense unleashed against the Cowichan Bulldogs.

The Sooke Peewee Seahawks football team couldn’t get their offense unleashed against the Cowichan Bulldogs, falling 18-0 to the visitors at Westhills Field in Langford on April 28.

The large and aggressive Bulldogs’ defensive front overwhelmed the Seahawks’ offense. Sooke didn’t manage a first down until the fourth quarter, and surrendered an interception return for a touchdown in the second.

Defensively, Sooke had some strong performances. Cornerback Tie Boake continued his strong play with a strip and fumble recovery early in the first. Boake has generated a take-away in three consecutive games. Nick Mason worked hard and was one of the team’s top tacklers on the day, including two straight to stop a drive deep in Seahawk territory. Safety Alec McKenzie ended another drive with an interception inside his five yard line.

Penalties also bit into Sooke’s chances. Two consecutive plays summarized the Seahawks’ day. With the score 12-0, Sooke looked to have a nice second down run to make it third and less than a yard. But a penalty after the play made it third and about 15 instead, forcing a punt. On the ensuing punt, the team took a no-yards penalty which moved the ball to Sooke’s five yard line. One play later, it was 18-0 and game over.

The Seahawks look to get back to their winning ways next week against the Peninsula Wildcats on May 5 at Greenglade Community Centre in Sidney.
