Hornets sting Seahawks

Surrey's Frank Hurt Secondary makes a statement against Seaquam rivals in high school AA Varsity football action.

The Frank Hurt Hornets varsity football team improved its record to three wins and one loss with a convincing 39-13 victory over the Seaquam Seahawks Friday afternoon (Oct. 11).

For Frank Hurt, it was the last home game of the season and they made sure they gave the home fans something to cheer about.

“Seaquam are a very good team and physical,” said coach Frank Hurt Duane Linnen, “but we were running on all cylinders today, we are finally becoming a team.”

On the ground, running back Bashiru Sise-Odaa led the team, carrying the ball 11 times for 120 yards and two touchdowns.

Wide receiver Rahshon Loobie hauled in three catches for 100 yards and three touchdowns, the first of which came on a 50-yard spectacular catch over the outstretched arms of Seaquam defensive back Matsaki Kawanami.

On the defensive side of the ball, Loobie also had an interception while Alex Garcia and Raj Sandhu both had six tackles and two sacks each.

The defensive line of the Hornets put pressure on Seaquam quarterback Josh Secord-Yanciw most of the game, forcing him to scramble outside the pocket.

For Seaquam, star receiver Kawanami was held to only three catches all game.

Coach Linnen knows the playoffs are going to be a tough test for his squad.

“I’ve been telling our team we need to be more physical and they showed me they can play that way,” he said. “Now we need to take it to the next level if we want to make the playoffs, it’s not going to get any easier.”

Frank Hurt has an exhibition game scheduled for Oct. 19 against Ballenas in Parksville with their final regular season game on Nov. 2 against Holy Cross.

Seaquam plays their cross town rivals in South Delta on Oct. 19 with their final game of the season against Spectrum Nov. 2 on Vancouver Island.

In other high school action Saturday, Holy Cross defeated Hugh Boyd 14-10 in overtime.
