The Spartans keep on kicking it!

Spartans brave the rain in Parksville

Sooke football players practice and play in the rain

After practising in the pouring rain this past Wednesday in preparation for Saturday’s game against the Campbell River Screaming Eagles. It proved to be a wise thing. On a sloshy, non-draining football field in Parksville this past Saturday our Spartan players showed up in full gear and positive attitude. After being scored on, on the second play of the game our offense, defense and special teams woke up. The dynamic duo of Flash Carter and T-Bone Boyd hooked up for 3 touchdowns in total. Passing and backing each other up like the football playing brothers that they are! We scored 6 touchdowns on the day and you don’t get that without kudos to the o-line’s blocking and snapping lead by Carrier and his crew!! Many a good sweep led to Owen Cheng’s first touchdown of the game.  Later he returned a kick-off for 63 yards-sloshing his way downfield with great blocks and 1 touchdown block by T-Bone with Steele and Boyd getting good yardage returns on kick-offs as well. Finally last week’s d-star of the game Carson “I can run” Montague scored the first td of his career with a nifty/shifty 12 yard run. Good job boys. Defence was led by our very own Jacob the mountain LaMontagne with at least 8 tackles, and 4 sacks at last count. Jared Steele ripped the ball out for us and Jacob recovered a fumble. With numerous tackles by Logan, Cheng, Will Gor, defence held the Comox to 2 scores and 1 convert. Also on this day we saw the debut of our newest running back Aidan Wilbur with with 3 carries accumulated  36 yards. Next week Comox Valley Raiders.
