Peewee Seahawks take on Wildcats

The Seahawks walked away with a loss of 26-8 against the Peninsula Wildcats

The Sooke Home Hardware Seahawks Peewee football team hosted the Peninsula Wildcats last Sunday in exciting mid-season play. A sliver of two points was the difference the last time these two teams faced. The Wildcats widened the gap in the result of this rematch, however the Seahawks came together as a stronger team.

Runningback Aiden Wood scampered for a 60-yard touchdown in the Seahawks first play from scrimmage – led  by blocks from Spencer Leslie and Jaden Dawe. The touchdown was set up by a 25-yard kick return by Josh Petite. Wood also tapped in the 2-point kick convert to give the Seahawks an 8-6 lead in the first quarter.

Although the Seahawks were plagued by injury among seven of their starters, rookies like Ethan Agar, Tyler Scheubel, Michael Gaj and Matthew Holmes stepped up to make key plays on the defence. Also racking up some tackles were first year Peewees Tie Boake, Connor Ward, Bailey McMillan, Jacob Laliberty, Dreyden Lindquist, Alec McKenzie and Dalton Franche.

Quarterback Brady Greenwood earned a first down on a keeper late in the game, adding to the 12 first downs tallied between rookie runningbacks Eddie George and Matthew Thomson. The Seahawks offence maintained polished drives and had good control of the football but weren’t able to capitalize again in the game. The Wildcats took advantage of a couple bounces their way and finished the game on top 26-8.

A big thanks to coach Richard Whitely, trainer/coach Brian Cownden and team manager Doug Agar for their support on the sidelines.

The Seahawks will celebrate Mother’s Day (May 13) on the gridiron by taking on the league-leading Saanich Wolverines at Bear Mountain Stadium (Goudy Field) at 3:00 p.m.
