The final Sunday in October saw the Victoria Outlaws (football) win a season-ending battle against the Victoria Hitmen. The Sooke players on the Outlaws team, Jared Steele and Spencer Logan both wreaked havoc along with Caleb Carrier, Hunter Swift, AvAn Wickheim and Sam Lowden. The Outlaws achieved first place on the Island for the Peewee Spartans for the first time.
Starting on the 25-yard line, the boys passed, ran and fought through eight plays ending with Spencer “the tank” Logan getting the first touchdown. Two possessions later, with the same kind of ferocity with excellent snapping from Caleb “budder” Carrier and blocking galore from Hunter “the steamroller” Swift, Gorchounov scored the Spartan’s second touchdown.
With three minutes left in the game, the Sooke boys, all of them on defence, tackled and fought against the Hitmen. They got a few breaks and ended up on our five-yard line ready to score. With first place on the line — last play of the game — “slippery” Sam Lowden and Jared “man of” Steele made a stellar tackle together on one of the best runningbacks in the league. That team-of-two knocked him out of bounds at the two-yard line. And with that take-down, the game ended, and the Outlaws won.
