Victoria player helps Sooke player up.

Wins elusive for ‘hawks

The Sooke Home Hardware peewee Seahawks made the trek to the Nanaimo to face the Broncos in the Seahawks’ second game of the season. With Jacob Arnaud as quarterback, our players fought through their hardest game yet. 

Having only 16 players ready to field, first year players like Alex Campbell, Braedon Gouk Quinn Plant and Juilan Peterson play both sides of the ball for most of the game. Even with the valiant effort of all the players, the Seahawks fell to the Broncos 43-0

During the first half the Broncos were held at bay with key plays like a  fumble caused by Torrington Keoughan during a goal line push by the Broncos. The offense also drove the ball downfield with big runs by Garret Tunkow. All team members finished the game with high spirits, and ready for another hard week of practice to prepare for our home game next against the Westshore Warriors on Sunday, April 10.

 The Village Foods Sooke Seahawks Pre-Atom football team started Sunday’s game versus Victoria with a speedy 15-yard gain by first year running back Kieran (roadrunner) Franklin.  

Offensive player of the game – quarterback Tyler Umbach then handed off to speedster  mvp of the game Simon Herold and he ran 30 yards for his second touchdown of the season. Again Tyler passed for a two-point conversion on a screen pass to Louis-Philipe Gagnon. Two-way player, centre and nose-tackle Jacob LaMontange, also the defensive player of the game anchored his way to numerous blocks and tackles. 

Second year players Ben Powers,Thomas Lowerison, Caleb Carrier and Grayson Hoolaeff made numerous tackles and stopped Victoria’s offense consistently. Spencer Logan rushed for  20 yards and again carried 3-4 players on each 4-5 yard rush with him. Newcomers Beau Hicks, Ian Macdonald, Adam Hughes, Manny Ratcliffe, Josh Danielson (playing both ways for most fo the game) fought continously to maintain their lead. Jared Steele and Cale (horse) Vix shedded blocks and made it difficult for the Victoria team. Final score was 22-8 for the Victoria Vikings.
