Sooke Seahawk players helping the Warriors face off vs. Saanich Wolverines.

Power running carries Peewee Seahawks to impressive victory

A summary of how the Sooke Peewees did versus Saanich last weekend.

Local Seahawk players helped the Warriors to their second consecutive victory against our x-town rivals Saanich Wolverines.

In a hard fought back and forth game with the Warriors coming out on top 24-22, “machine” Carrier snapping and along with “Mountain-Man” LaMontagne double team blocking those massive interior lineman all day long.

Owen Cheng down field blocking, Spencer Logan had numerous tackles on defense and Jared Steele in his first game of the season had a fumble recovery with a healthy 12 yard gain.

Riley Stratton also in his first tussle hammered away at those running backs all game. Next contest in two weeks against Peninsula.

Coach Andy Carrier

The Sooke PeeWee Seahawks outmuscled the Peninsula Wildcats in a 42-0 win April 19 at Greenglade Community Centre in Sidney.

First-year players Quin Threlfall and Riley Berfelo both scored their first (and second) ever touchdowns.

Threlfall started the scoring by taking the opening kick-off all the way, then Berfelo dismissed a would-be tackler before running to the endzone on the Seahawks’ second possession.

Hunter Swift kicked both converts to put Sooke up 16-0. He also converted numerous third downs on the day, and scored just before half-time to remove any ambitions Peninsula might have had heading into the break. Swift finished three for four on convert attempts.

Sooke found the end-zone every time they had the ball, thanks largely to the strong blocking and power running of centers/full-backs Anthony Tucker and James Mullen. Both were nearly flawless on their snaps, and both ran the ball effectively.

Two Seahawks played their first ever games after missing the Week 1 contest. Jordan Quissy’s and Connor Warford’s effective blocking kept the offense rolling, while their stout play on the defensive line helped declaw the Wildcat’s attack.

Kingston Foster, Dawson Reid and Paul Mattson rounded out the linemen corp that dominated the trenches, giving QBs Connor Keys and Brody Reinsch plenty of time to get the ball to their running backs. Both QBs also converted third and shorts with QB sneaks, and Reinsch added a fourth quarter touchdown.

Wide receivers William Daoust and Simon Eskildsen both came close to hauling in passes. Eskildsen made a few key blocks on the outside, while Daoust earned the Seahawks a first down with a nice run.

Sooke’s defence was anchored by the outstanding play of outside linebackers Westley Cornwall and AvAn Wickheim. Both aggressively hemmed the Wildcat’s offence in, and the couple of times Peninsula did get around them, cornerbacks Dane Pfeiffer and Reid Gerhardts were there to make the stop.

The 1-1 Seahawks look to improve their record next week against their arch-rivals, the Westshore Warriors.

Kick-off is 3 p.m. Saturday, April 25 at Westhills Stadium in Langford.

Coach Nathan Lowther
