Sooke Seahawks – Sunday summaries

Rundown of pre-atom, atom and peewee football action from April 10

After four hard-fought quarters, the Village Foods Pre-Atom Sooke Seahawks suffered their fourth loss of the season Sunday at the EMCS field. 

Holding the top-ranked Westshore Warriors to only three touchdowns and no converts was a testimony to how hard the defence worked on this day. Team captain Jacob LaMontagne had seven tackles and caused three fumbles. Caleb Carrier (doubling as centre), Tyler Austin, Cale Vix and Josh Danieleson rounded out the d-line. Defensive player of the game Thomas Lowerison landed quite a few good wrapped-up tackles. Spencer Logan blocked and rushed with Westshore players hanging onto his heels. Quinn MacDonald and two-way player Adam Hughes rounded out  the defense.

MVP Ben Powers had quite a few runs and doubled as quarterback with 20-yard passes that unfortunately were not caught. Quarterback/two-way player Tyler Umbach tossed and made many a hand-off, however, the Westshore defense was stronger on this day. 

Offensive player of the game, Beau Hicks worked the O-line and had many good blocks. Although small in size, (like Manny Ratcliffe, Louis Philipe Gagnon, Grayson Hoolaeff, Kieran Franklin, and Jared Steele) they were big on the field, holding their blocks and playing with big-hearts like the Sooke youth they are. Final score-Westshore 18-Sooke 0. Next game (for all three Sooke teams) will be versus the Cowichan Bulldogs in Duncan this Saturday, April 16.

 Facing up to a big, skilled and hardworking Westshore squad the Sooke Handcraft Woodwork atom Seahawks knew they’d have their hands full, and that they did in a 12-6 Westshore win.

Many good efforts were put in, however, by the Sooke side. Defensive kudos were dispensed by coach Darryl Pollock to a number of athetes, led by Alec McKenzie whose hard tackle and heads up play generated the Seahawks’ only score.

McKenzie managed to strip the ball from the Westshore player and scamper some 60 yards for a touchdown.

Other defensive standouts were: Zac Bedford, Robbie Lowerison and Cole Johns.

On the offensive side of things productive running by Nick Pollock, and the punishing, up-the-gut rushing of Jordan Schutt garnered happy attention from the sidelines. Other d-men coming in line for credit were Tyson Bastone, Ky Berger, Conner Ward and Randy Ross.

The Sooke Home Hardware peewee Seahawks held home turf at EMCS last Sunday for their third game of the season. Despite a tight first half and only an eight point  difference, the Westshore Warriors finished on top 31-0.

The punting of Braedon Gouk helped push the Warriors back into their own end in  the first half, but the Warriors sprung a touchdown run late in the second quarter to take the lead.

The Seahawks 14-man roster meant most players were on the field for the entire game. But they hammered away for big plays. Ten different players got at least one tackle – led by Quinn Plant with five tackles and one interception in the game. Torin Keoughan blocked a kick in the second half.
