The Sooke Seahawks Atom division football kept their undefeated season going with a tough battle against the Nanaimo Bombers on Sunday at Westhills Stadium in Langford.

The Seahawks came out flat in the first quarter against a Nanaimo team that was bringing it and fell behind 6-0 before they seemed to wake up.

In the second quarter Sooke started to play Seahawk football and by halftime had taken a 12-6 lead. Nanaimo continued to battle the Seahawks hard in the second half but our Sooke boys showed Nanaimo why they are still undefeated.

With solid defense and great blocking on the offense Sooke just pulled away from the Bombers and finished with a convincing 25-6 victory. Key players on the mighty Seahawk defence were Gabe Nelson with many tackles and an interception.

Malaki Allen was all over the field making tackles. Defensive linemen Skyler Rossiter, Mikey Lundell and Trysten Schroeder all had sacks and tackles on the day. Rookies Austin Perry and Brody Berfolo chipped in with key tackles when needed.

Linebackers Angelo Avila and Ryan Pfeiffer stood strong not allowing Nanaimo anything in the second half. On the offensive side Nelson and Allen scored two touchdowns each with strong runs. Quarterback Christian Kaisinger has developed into an incredible leader with perfect execution of all plays, strong runs and scored a conversion on a great fake and run. Running Back Travis Robertson had huge blocks all day for his team and running back Dayton Planes ran the ball extremely well against a tough Nanaimo defense.

The offensive line of Xzander Adams, Rossiter, Lundell, Mitchell Rose and Michael Widner played strong football especially in the second half.

Rose battled a bigger Nanaimo opponent the entire game while Widner had to go in at Center when Lundell left the game with an injury and Widner played his strongest game of the season when his team needed him the most. With only one game left in the regular season against the winless Peninsula Wildcats next week the Seahawks look to finish the regular season unbeaten and get ready for a serious playoff run.
