Seahawks battle against top Saanich team

The young players put up a good effort, but lost 12-0 against the Saanich Wolverines

It’s with great pride that I report on Village Food Markets Sooke Seahawks pre-atom football.

On a hot, dry Mother’s Day we faced Saanich Wolverine’s unbeaten this season.

Five games, and outscoring their opposition by more than 170 points in those games.

However this was not to happen today.

Defence lead by #9 Spencer ‘Bone-crusher’ Logan, L.P.’Firecracker’ Gagnon, Jared ‘The Hawk’ Steele, Thomas Lowerison, fleet-footed Finn Rogers, Caleb Carrier, Luther White, Hunter Swift, Kaedan Rheault, and Jacob Barney combined for eight sacks, 25 tackles, four fumbles, three recovered fumbles and a very concerned Saanich offense.

Offense was led by Jared Steele, Thomas Lowerison, Spencer Logan and marvellous Malik Youla with big blocks great runs and just missing a bullet-like pass that bounced off his helmet.

O-line blocks again fueled by Tyson Robinson, Tye Linquist, Adam Hughes, and center Sian ‘Big Man’ Cyr and Mighty Mike Allman.

As Coach Charlie from Saanich told me, “We were lucky today, you have great kids in Sooke and hard players.”

With a few questionable calls we lost 12-0. Next game against Westshore on June 3rd.

I’m so proud of our boys
