Seahawks eliminated

A week after clinching first place in the Southern Conference, the Seaquam  Seahawks were eliminated in the opening round of the Senior AA playoffs by an opponent they had easily handled six weeks earlier.

The Seahawks lost 35-16 to the Rick Hansen Hurricanes Saturday night at B.C. Place, bowing out of the playoffs in the round of 16. Seaquam topped the Hurricanes 33-6 on Oct. 1.

Playing without several starters due to injury, the Seahawks took a pair of leads early in the game, before turnovers led to a pair of Rick Hansen touchdowns which blew open a close four-point game.

Scoring touchdowns for Seaquam were Taylor Northway and Mark Lego, while Keegan Lensink added a field goal. Lensink added an interception, while Chris Hoegler led all Seahawks on defence with nine tackles.

The Holy Cross Crusaders were also eliminated, losing 34-18 to the Ballenas Whalers Friday in Nanaimo.
