The Sooke Pre-Atom Seahawk football team admitted defeat to the Wildcats with a 13-6 loss.

Pre-Atom Seahawks play Wildcats

Sooke’s young footballers make big efforts at Sidney game

It was another thrilling day on the grid iron in Sidney, as the Village Food Markets’ Pre-Atom footballers, aged 7-10, scrambled, clawed, fought their way to a classic contest with Penninsula Wildcats.

First year defensive ends Tye “the tiger” Linquist and Lightning Luther White threw blocks at players twice their size with intensity.

Defence dominated the first half with Sooke led by third year guard Spencer-knock-em-down Logan stirring up the Wildcat offence, along with Caleb Carrier.

Malik Youla had a sack  and recovery and nose-tackle.

Extrordinaire Jacob Barney, Kaedan Rheault, Sian Cyr made moving the ball anything but easy.

Linebackers and ends Jared Steele, Quinn Macdonald, Adam Hughes along with free safety L.P. Gagnon caused four fumbles and two recoveries.

Offence on the other hand dominated the 2nd half with Seahawk qb-L.P. Gagnon, wingbacks Malik Youla and Jared Steel — combining for an exciting criss-cross pattern.

Steele sped 40 yards for his first touch down — well deserved — with four passing attempts and numerous pitches and hand-offs.

It just wasn’t our day to score. Final Wildcats 13, Seahawks 6.
