Sooke Seahawks succumb to Nanaimo

The Sooke Seahawks Atom team had quite the game and played strong in spite of setbacks.

The Sooke Seahawks Atom team had quite the game. We arrived to find out we were playing nine man football — not 12 — without any notice. After scrambling, and with first year kicker Riley Stratton leading the way, Sooke fought and got possession with a great pitch by quarterback Jared Steele to Owen Cheng. Sooke scored first, with Owen punching in the convert.

With more than 15 runs to his credit, Owen owned the field for the first half on offence. Additional runs by Jared, Simon Herald and Thomas Lowerison, who caught an awesome pass from Malik Youla.

Middle-field runs by Spencer Logan and Jacob Barney grabbed a number of first downs.

The second half belonged to Nanaimo. With a kick-off returned for a touchdown and a number of fumbles and lack-lustre tackling, they scored two of their three touchdowns of the game. Sooke’s defence was fueled by Logan, Steele, Lowerison, Grayson Hoolaef — who’s on a defensive tear — and Ben Power and Keegan Quinn Young. Linebackers Carrier, Campana, Ward, Wahl and Monteiro all put in a good effort.

Jacob Lamontgane ran back to made a touchdown-saving tackle! In the second half, quarterback Malik Youla pitched, passed, ran and fought his way to many a first down with no scoring. Jacob Daly, Miguel Black, Hunter Nicks Quinn Macdonald and Kieran Franklin all added to our valiant effort: the final score was Nanaimo 22-13.

The next game is scheduled for April 28th against Cowichan.
