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.
