Sooke Seahawks Atoms win 8-6 over Saanich Wolverines

The Village Food Markets Seahawks saw a hard-fought defensive battle with the wily Wolverines on a hot Sunday afternoon. Sixteen of 22 players played almost the whole game with defense allowing only one touchdown early in the game. Then a persistent, cunning and aggressiveness comeback was led by cornerback L.P. Gagnon, with over seven play-ending tackles-Caleb “butter” Carrier getting three quarterbacks sacks. Spencer Logan saw four backfield and numerous downfield tackles. Shoring up the defense was #60, Owen “the animal” Cheng who despite weighing only 70 pounds drove many a Saanich-player backwards with his might. Grayson Hoolaef achieved a fumble recovery. Miguel Black, Jacob LaMontagne, Nakoda Ward, Josh Campana, and Peter Wahls shored up the D-line, and prowling the backfields, Ben Power, Keegan Young, Quinn MacDonald, and Keefe Monteiro.

Offense was slower to get going with many a first-down from newest quarterback, Spencer Logan and veteran team leader Jared “man of” Steele, with great pitches and hand-offs to Hunter Nicks, Owen Cheng-Jacob Barney. Caleb Carrier anchored the offense with 100 per cent complete snapping and the quarterbacks worked their magic with a hand-off to #68 Kieran Franklin. He ran a 65 yard touchdown like a gazelle, with only one awesome fake to the inside and running it all the way for our first touchdown, Jared Steele with Carrier holding kicked the two point convert to solidify the win.

The next game will be against Nanaimo.
