Peewee Seahawks stumble versus Warriors

The Sooke PeeWee Seahawks football team played hard on Mother’s Day but came up short against the Westside Warriors in Langford.

The Sooke PeeWee Seahawks football team played hard on Mother’s Day but came up short against the Westside Warriors in Langford.

The offense got a spark to start the second half when Bailey McMillan, starting his second game at quarterback, completed a long catch-and-run score to first-year player Madison Foster. She got behind the coverage, hauled in the arcing spiral and outran the defence to the end zone for her first career touchdown.

Despite some rainy weather McMillan threw the ball well in the second half, connecting with Alec Mackenzie, Matt Holmes and Eddie George. The offensive line did a nice job giving him time in the pocket, anchored by centers Jordan Schutt and Nathan Eldridge.

Defensively, Gabe Christie had his strongest game of the year, getting pressure on the Westside quarterback and being in on a couple of tackles. Logan Winger continued his outstanding first season making numerous open-field tackles on the Warriors’ top running back, one of the best players in the league.

The Seahawks get a bye over the long weekend and hope to come back fresh and healthy for the final two games of the regular season.
