Sooke's Seahawks score a touchdown.

Won by one, with seconds to spare

The Seahawk Atom football played a nail-biter of a game on Sunday, April 28, against the ferocious Bulldogs of Cowichan Valley-Down.

The Seahawk Atom football played a nail-biter of a game on Sunday, April 28, against the ferocious Bulldogs of Cowichan Valley-Down. They scored two touchdowns by the end of the first quarter. The defence led by Gagnon in jersey number six, who caused a fumble and recovered it, with an assist to Steele and safety Ben Power, sporting number 73. They settled into a groove that stopped their offence on every possession for the other three quarters.

Jared Steele, wearing number 66, played both ways and disrupted the quarterbacks all through the second half with six tackles. Quinn Macdonald, Peter Wahls, Jacob Daly, Jacob Lamontagne, Miguel Black, and Keegan Young shored up the D-line.

Offense was a different story. Spencer “the tank” Logan, sporting jersey number nine, had numerous runs, one with three guys dragging on him. He had a 30 yard run and then punched it in for the team with his first touchdown. Jared Steele, along with fantastic fullback Hunter NIcks, with his first touchdown of the year, did hand-off after hand-off with excellent help from the O-line. The O-line was led by Jacob (never lets his team down) Lamontagne, Caleb Carrier, Riley Stratton, Jacob Daly, Simon Herold, Owen Cheng, Malik Youla, (who himself handled his position as our other quarterback with poise and expertise of players older than him!). The line aided a 25-yard run weaving and fighting off five different tackles scored our second touchdown. With the game on the line Simon Herold came through with a two-point conversion kick-defence then had two quarterback sacks and thwarted the Bulldogs offence and we won our game 14-13!

What a great bunch of Sooke kids who never quit and won with less than 40 seconds on the clock! Coaches are so proud of our crew!
