Sooke Seahawk’s played a strong game on Sunday

Sacks and nose-dives, Sooke Seahawks see it all

Sooke Seahawk Football’s Atom team (11 and 12 year olds) reported on Sunday’s tilt against the ever cunning Saanich Wolverines.

Sooke Seahawk Football’s Atom team (11 and 12 year olds) reported on Sunday’s tilt against the ever cunning Saanich Wolverines. With kicker extraordinaire, #72 Simon Herald placed the kick-off well behind all Saanich players, and our kick-off team surrounded them with no gains at all.

Our D-line, anchored by nose-tackle Jacob Barney and D-tackle Spencer “tank” Logan (with 9 play-ending tackles) and # 3 Jacob LaMontagne, got the only quarterback sack of the game. A sack occurs when the quarterback is tackled from behind the scrimmage line before they can throw a forward pass.

Newcomer defensive-end #19 Keegan Quinn-Young kept the backfield free of any gains with his first interception of the campaign. Quinn-Young had four cross-field tackles ending, many a downfield rush from the Wolverines-Free safety Ben Powers.

Newcomers Nakoda Ward, Peter Wahl, Joshua Campana, and Keefe Monteiro all had excellent debuts on defence.

Offence was run by awesome quarterback Jared Steele, with many a good hand-off and pitch and standing tall in the pocket. There was excellent O-line blocking led by first-year centre Miguel Black, great tackles by Josh Wass and Jacob LaMontagne, and strong guards Caleb Carrier and newcomer Jacob “the mountain” Daly. New tight-ends Carson Montague and Riley Stratton held off the Saanich defence admirably. Wing-backs Kieran Franklin and Thomas Lowerison completed the starting offensive line-up.

Ultimately, the game belonged to newly acquired tail-back #60 Owen “the animal” Cheng, who along with first year fullback  Hunter Nicks  blocked, fought and clawed his way to his first  and only touchdown.

The final score was Saanich 12-6, and the next game is scheduled for Oak Bay on April 14. The Sooke Seahawk football team is sponsored by Village Food Markets.
