Spartans go 30-0 against Steelers

Victoria Spartans football team wins against Ladysmith players

The game against the Ladysmith Steelers started with a downfield march that ended up with a field goal kicked by Steele. The Steelers didn’t stand much of a chance against the Victoria Spartans. The Spartans took it 30-0.

Next was a defense interception by Ben “man of the hour” Power which he ran for a pick six touchdown. Power led his team on defence which held the Steelers scoreless although they came close with Cheng making a touchdown saving tackle at our 20 yard line!

Many a good tackle was done by Sam Lowden, Hunter Nicks. Amazing qb sack by LaMontagne.

Offence was centered by Carrier as a starter in his fourth season at center-snapping the ball Carter “the flash” Price caught a 25-yard pass and trotted in for a touchdown.

Quarteback Tyson “the bullet” Boyd had a satisfactory first start with 8 completions, great hand-offs tackles on defence and a touchdown himself!

Spencer Logan had a good day on the o-line blocking to help these scores happen. The next game is on Sunday, September 21 at the Eagle Ridge turf field at 12:30 p.m.

With eight Sooke players on the Spartans team it’s easy to see how our contingent of players continue to wreak havoc on the gridiron.
