Peewee Cowichan ‘Dogs bow out

The peewee Cowichan Bulldogs bowed out of the spring football playoffs last Sunday after a tough loss to the Sooke Seahawks.

"Our team played well, but were not able to stop the Seahawks," head coach Devon Lawrence said.

Linebacker Jesse Kwansky and safety Sawyer Ellison held the Seahawks back with key tackles in the first half, while big blocks from linemen Andre Lauzon and Carter Court helped running back Riley Noyce gain positive yardage.

In the second half, receiver Jeevan Nijjar caught a pass from quarterback Aiden Lawrence that again helped the Bulldogs get some badly needed yards. Cornerback Jason Boyd and linebacker Parker Sparks made big tackles. A late push saw running back Zach Pearson take a direct snap and almost complete a successful pass to Jaxson Jones.

Although the season is over, coach Lawrence was pleased with the way things went.

"I am happy to say all the players have grown as athletes and I could not be more proud of how they all have played throughout the season," he said.

The junior bantam Bulldogs still have one game left as they will face the Ladysmith Steelers for the Silver Cup this Saturday at 3 p.m. in Langford’s Westhills Stadium.
