Atom division Seahawks now 3-0 with hard fought win over the Westshore Warriors

Our Sooke Seahawks got off to a rough start in their first home game against the Westshore Warriors last Saturday.

It was cold, raining hard, and the Warriors enjoyed a significant size advantage. The Warriors scored a touchdown on their very first possession.

Down 6-0, Seahawk coaches Tony Nelson, Ozzy Avila, and Mike Kaisinger used positive encouragement to give our little guys courage. “Hit them low, and they will come down!”, Coach Tony shouted.

The Seahawks defense went on to use a combination of sheer determination, hard hits, and swarm tackles to paralyze the Warriors offense.

In one play, Seahawks Avila Angelo was flattened by a legal straight arm from Warriors tough guy Torin O’Hara. That only emboldened teammate Brody Berfelo to promptly take down Torin an instant later.

Brody’s next play was to help Avila up off the field. The Seahawks offense responded with 4 unanswered touch downs. Two from Gabe Nelson, one from Christian Kaisinger, and another from Avila Angelo.

In an interview following the game, Seahawks Defensive Captain Gabe Nelson summarized the day. “Those guys were big!”

Final score, Seahawks 24 – Warriors 6.

Our  Sooke Seahawks next home game is vs the Gordon Head Raiders on Sunday May 3, 10 a.m. at Goudy Turf Field in Langford.
