Sooke Atom Seahawks fought hard and came up short.

Sooke Atom Seahawks stare down the Gordon Head Raiders

Game summary from Coach Andy in the Sooke Atom Seahawks football game against the Gordon Head Raiders.

Although we had good kick-returns by Simon Herald #3 and awesome runs by both Owen Cheng and Jared Steele, our O-line didn’t respond well: we failed to score a point and didn’t connect offensively with blocks or ball-running against the Gordon Head Raiders.

Having said that, we fought hard  with Caleb Carrier, Jacob LaMontagne, Miguel Black, and Jacob O-Te’s Riley Stratton; and, Carson Montague had great improvement on blocking.

The defence held their own, holding the high scoring Raiders to 18 points while making two big interceptions, by league-leading free safety Ben Power and Thomas Lowerison with his first of the year.

Many good tackles by corner-back L.P. Gagnon, Ben Power, Jared Steele, and Quinn Macdonald. Grayson Hoolaeff wearing #51 saw his first touchdown saving tackle, with more to come! There was also a great game-ending tackle by #68 Kieran “take em down” Franklin on the star quarterback from the Raiders!

Other play-ending tackles came from O-liner Jacob LaMontagne and line-backer Spencer Logan-next game Westhills stadium-Sunday against the Nanaimo Lions.
