Pre-Atom Seahawks find scoring touch

The Village Foods Sooke Seahawks Pre-Atom (6-10 year olds) football team travelled up to Nanaimo to battle the Lions of the Harbour City this past weekend.

What an offensive battle it was, with both teams trading touchdowns twice in the first half. Sooke’s power running back Spencer Logan (game MVP) with a 30 yard rush scored his first touchdown of the year. Then Simon Herold sped his way to paydirt with great blocks from Thomas Lowerison and Ben Power.

Also in line for credit are Jacob Lamontagne, Caleb Carrier, Cale Vix and Josh Danielson.

The first half defence was led by outside linebacker Louis-Philipe Gagnon with three flying tackles to save the onward assault of the Lions. Also strong were Manny Ratcliffe, Quinn Macdonald, Ian Macdonald (defensive player of the game) and Kieran Franklin bringing up the flank.

The second half saw an offensive explosion with four Seahawk majors.

Louis-Philipe Gagnon (35 yards) and Kieran Franklin (25 yards) turned in super efforts.

With good blocking and a timely hand-off from Gagnon, Ben Power motored upfield for a 30 yard td. To finish the scoring Kieran Franklin cut and chop-stepped his way to another 25-yarder for his second t.d. of the half. It’s also with great pride that Seahawk coaching staff witnessed the debut of a future Seahawk superstar – six-year-old Sian Cyr who, in his first start of the season stood up to the offensive lineman and even pancaked the biggest player on the lions team, then helped him up.

Next game is this Sunday at Eagleridge.
