Sooke football players key to 40-0 Spartan’s Island Championship

A decisive victory margin of 40-0 against Victoria Hitmen saw local Sooke boys lead the Spartans (Westshore) to the Island Championship.

With a stellar performance and a decisive victory margin of 40-0 against the Victoria Hitmen the local Sooke boys led the Spartans (Westshore) to the Island Championship.

Pictured above with his team, Spencer “the Tank” Logan, who smashed his way over 35 yards on three carries, with a play ending three-yard rush, ploughed his way into the end-zone with three Hitmen hanging on. Caleb “Budder” Carrier, centre extraordinaire who held the player of the game award (the Golden Sword of Success) had over 25 snaps. One included a 10 yard long snap on a fake field goal attempt, blocked by Jared Steele, as Will “the Animal” Gourachev swept into the end-zone. It was of his three touchdowns on the day.

With Steel kicking five converts, two punts and seven kickoffs, his “Leg of Steel” was no match for those Hitmen returners. Steel picked up a fumbled ball near the end of the game and ran 45 yards for our fifth and final touchdown.

It was an incredible game, and the Sooke boys more than measured up. They help carry this team — with play ending tackles from AvAn Wickheim, Logan, and Steele with too many tackles to write about. The O-line and outside blocking from Hunter “Fantastic” Swift and “Slippery” Sam Lowden, the Sooke players help the Peewee Spartans to their first Island Championship ever.

A perfect 7-0 record, with the next stop in Kamloops for the Provincial Championship. Stay tuned: there’s more great football to follow.
