It’s with great community pride that I report on the decisive 44-0 chopping of the Prince George Axeman in Kamloops on Saturday.
Caleb “budder” Carrier led his offense at centre to six touchdowns, with accurate and consistent ball-snapping. Two of those touchdowns were by Spencer “the tank” Logan, who fought and ran hard for both. Jared “man of” Steele kicked his league-leading 22 convert (with a grand total of 48 points for his team) and converted four more on the day. Steele threw to Will “the animal” Gorr a 45-yard touchdown pass. Will got four of the six touchdowns and was the most valuable player of the game.
“Slippery” Sam Lowden, on his first carry of the game, slipped and slid his way to a play-saving first down, diving with the ball. Not to be outdone, Hunter “fantastic” Swift blocked and beat players twice his size on the o-line as he ran an eight-yard wedge up the middle, chopping and dropping three Axeman.
An equally stellar performances were executed by AvAn “pitbull” Wickheim on defence with three play-ending tackles, Lowden, Logan and Steele with numerous sacks, and Steele taking huge blocks and rolling off and still bucking those Axeman to the ground.
Carrier came on defence at the end of the game coupled with Gerrit and together they pancaked their biggest player.
In the last play of the game, Steele kicked a 40-yard kick-off, Will Gorr flew down field and recovered the ball, and with that our ball game over. What an incredible season! I am really proud of all the team especially our young Sooke men who did our community proud on and off the field. Thanks to everyone who supported these players!
