Seahawks face off against Ladysmith, Gordon Head

A brief summary from last weekend's football games that had the Seahawks and Warriors pitted against Ladysmith and Gordon Head.

The Sooke PeeWee Seahawks battled hard to the final whistle, but couldn’t keep up with the Ladysmith Steelers on May 16.

The Steelers are one of the two nine-man teams in the league, and that coupled with the early start in Ladysmith got Sooke off to a sluggish start. The Seahawks improved as the game wore on, but couldn’t find the big play to get them back into it.

Two first-year players, Quin Threlfall and Riley Berfelo, continued their fantastic seasons. Threlfall started the second half by returning the kick-off for a touchdown, the third time this season he’s taken a kick-off to the house. He also accounted for one of the Seahawks’ longest runs from scrimmage, and made numerous solid tackles on defence.

Berfelo also ran hard, fighting for every yard he gained.

And on defence he came up with a few tackles for losses and caused a fumble, showing the instincts, speed and strength that have made him such a standout.

Another first year player, Simon Eskildsen, showed the strides he’s made over the course of the season when he swatted away a pass attempt on third down to get his team the ball back. And William Daoust, who scored his first ever touchdown in Sooke’s previous game, came up with a fumble recovery.

The 2-3 Seahawks have three regular season games left before the start of the playoffs. Their next game is against the Saanich Wolverines on May 24.
