Kicker Riley Stratton shows great form.

Seahawk Atoms say sayonara

Sooke’s Village Food Markets Seahawks Atom football team is sad to report our season has ended.

Sooke’s Village Food Markets Seahawks Atom football team is sad to report our season has ended. On a hot Sunday afternoon against the Peninsula Wildcats-Kicker, Riley Stratton booted three kick-offs 35-plus yards — with special teammates Ben Power, Hunter Nicks, Kieran Franklin and defense holding the Wildcats to only one touchdown in the first half. Defense came alive with Jacob Barney, Keegan Quinn Young, Grayson Hoolaef, Quinn Macdonald, L.P. Gagnon and Spencer Logan smashing and crashing with quarterback sacks and negative yard tackles — throughout the whole game. Offense sputtered again with centre Caleb Carrier anchoring offense with a few fumbles, and not a lot of blocking. We failed to score. The second half was the same story: offense got going; defense fought and only allowed one more touchdown. However, offense sputtered along with no scoring. Quarter-back Jared Steele came on defense in the last few plays and had two quarterback sacks. Final score-16-0 Wildcats. Thanks so much for all your support and see you next year.
