Sooke Seahawks are continuing their winning ways with a convincing 22-2 win over Nanaimo Lions this past Sunday.

Offence started with the second play of the game with Jared “man of” Steele handing off to Owen “roadrunner” Cheng, who quickly ran and deeked his way to a 40-yard touchdown. Next quarter Jared Steele connected a bullet-like pass to L.P. “laser” Gagnon for a corner route 35-yard touchdown pass-and-run. Also adding on offence were the Heslop twins, Nick and David, with David sweeping the right side and his brother blocking for a 32-yard gain.

Defence took over allowing only three first downs in the whole game. Nick “fury” Heslop, Owen Cheng, and Spencer Logan all recording one sack. Laser Gagnon got three sacks through numerous play ending tackles by defence AvAn “pitbull” Wickheim, “slippery” Sam Lowden, Caleb “creeper” Carrier (first interception of the year), and Heslop twin David “Goliath” Heslop’s (small in stature big in heart) who also achieved a 15-yard possession tackle-ending play in Nanaimo’s secondary.

Newcomers John “sticky hands” Stalker, Lane “tackle” Stewart, Cade Testa, Nathan Davis and Antonio Cepada measured up on offence, defence and special teams.

In the second half of the game Malik “smoothy” Youla completed a needle threading pass to Laser-and Sam Lowden, passing to Riley “strutting” Stratton who caught this inside post pattern being covered by three Nanaimo defenders jumping and catching, capping, and locking the ball with the finesse of a seasoned wide-receiver.

Offence moved the ball trading possessions with a big run by laser Gagnon setting up the three-play touchdown run with Tyler “the bull” Fogarty wedging, setting up Jacob Barney’s second wedge touchdown play, with Steele getting his second convert of the day. Our boys did us proud. Next up is a game against the Gordon Head Raiders.
