Sooke Seahawks take on Peninsula Wildcats

A quick look at what's been happening with the Sooke Seahawks boys team over the last week or so.

The Atom division Sooke Seahawks hoped to finish the regular season undefeated Sunday as they took on the Peninsula Wildcats at Goudy Field in Langford.

The game featured a beaten Sooke team against a winless Peninsula team and certainly played out that way. The Seahawks scored early and often as they came out hungry in their quest to be only the second team ever from Sooke to have an undefeated regular season.

Knowing they were playing a weaker opponent and the fact it was the last game of the regular season the coaches took the opportunity to give everyone who hadn’t run the ball a chance to line up with their first ever carries.

Starting running-backs Malaki Allen and Dayton Planes scored great touchdowns before the back ups came in.

Planes also had two spectacular catches in the contest playing his best game of the season in limited action. Starting Quarterback Christian Kaisinger also hit the score sheet with a touchdown before being replaced by back up QB Angelo Avila in the second half.

Avila scored a 60 yard touchdown on his first run in the second half.First time ever ball carriers Michael Widner, Trysten Schroeder and Austin Perry all scored touchdowns in their chance to run the ball. Big Seahawk Skyler Rossiter swatted away Peninsula tacklers like bees as he scored a conversion given his first opportunity to play running back.

Other players with strong runs in their first chances were team captain Mikey Lundell, Xzander Adams and mighty Brody Berfolo with a nifty 20 yard run to the outside.

As usual, offensive lineman Mitchell Rose and Center Brynn Phillips blocked extremely well for their team. On the defensive side, Peninsula couldn’t move the ball against Seahawks defense and didn’t really even come close to scoring. The Seahawks defense finished the season as the #1 in the league only giving up 31 points in the entire eight-game season. Defensive coordinator Tony Nelson, with help from assistant coaches Mike Kaisinger and Qzzy Avila  did an outstanding job teaching these young boys fundamentals and proper tackling techniques.

Defensive Captain Gabe Nelson and Safety Malaki Allen were the biggest factors in solidifying the best defense in the league but it truly took a team effort to achieve the teams success. Head Coach and Offensive coordinator Darryl Pollock also gives Nelson and Allen kudos not just for their amazing efforts blocking and running the ball but as team players, blocking their tails off on Sunday so their team mates can enjoy success in their first chances running the ball. With running back Planes raising his athletic ability the last few games the Seahawks are firing on all cylinders heading into next week’s playoffs.

The Seahawks will take on the third place  Westshore Warriors in the semi finals next weekend.

The Seahawks defeated the Warriors 24-6 earlier in the season and the way the team is playing hope to run right over them in their quest for the championship.
