Seahawk Thomas Lowerison runs with the ball at the April 1 game against the Saanich Wildcats.

Seahawks make valiant effort against Wildcats

Sooke's young players lose 24-0 to Saanich's Wildcats

It’s with great pride that Village Food Markets presents the firstgame of the 2012 Sooke Seahawks Pre-Atom fooball.

The Seahawks played in Saanich against the fleet-footed Wildcats on April 1.

The Wildcats jumped to a quick 6 point lead, however, the Seahawks had two great runs on their next possession by newcomer #5 quarterback Malik Youla. Great blocking form from Spencer Logan, Hunter Swift, Manny Ratcliffe, the Fantastic 5 offensive lineman anchored by #6 Sebastian Rice,   at centre guards, Kaedin Rheault,Jacob Barney, Sian Cyr and first year Tyson Robinson — who in his first game ever was a huge presence physically on the field.

Unfortunately the wily Wildcats continued to dominate on offence, scoring 3 more touchdowns — not giving up Sooke offence lead by running back Thomas Lowerison, who zig and zagged his way to two impressive first downs with highlight reel moves left the Wildcats in their tracks. Also on offence, Spencer Logan, muscled his way on many a hard fought run. L.P. Gagnon, Caleb Carrier and Malik Youla ran and clawed,  they were, however, stopped short by the Saanich.

Wing-backs Jared Steele, Quinn Macdonald Adam Hughes and first year player Finn Rogers all had impressive carries on defence. Nose tackle, Jacob Barney, realized his goal of his first sack and fumble play. Luther White had the first tackle of his career and had plenty of help from Tye LInquist. Both first year players held more than their own against bigger and more experienced players.

The final score was Sannich 24, Sooke 0.

Players range from seven to 10 years old.
