Pictured are the Victoria Spartans Junior Bantam team “chilling” together after a 46 to 26 second half comeback win!

 

After being down 26-16 at the half way point of the game our young men bucked up and took complete control of the game against the Oceanside Titans.

Defense was led by Jacob Lamontagne  and his Sooke teammate Spencer ”I stole the ball” Logan with a “six-Spence” turnover and he ran 40 yards for a touchdown. Jacob on the day led his team with numerous tackles and sacks to foil any offence.

in the second half “Speedy”  Aidan Wilbur retrieved a kick-off for Sooke and  Jared Steele, who had four touchdowns of his own that day, quickly hustled it for another touchdown. Steele, who stepped up after starting quarter back Carter Price was injured, owned the Titans with his amazing runs and lead blocks by Owen Cheng. An O-line centered by Caleb Carrier did not allow a sack with very little penetration. With a touchdown by Will Gor, along with Sam Lowden stepped up to help lead their team at quarter back-Steele who had 5 conversion kicks as well.

Logan, Cheng, Gor who had a 30-yard reception from Steele for his touchdown kept the upbeat aggressive.

The “we never quit”attitude of our young men helped out on offense as well. We are so proud.

Next game Cowichan Bulldogs, Sunday Sept. 28.
