Lions roar to another shut out win

Oceanside peewee football squad remains unbeaten

The Oceanside Lions are not allowing anything to sneak past them easily.

The solid defence of this local peewee football team has led to another shutout win, 46-0, scored in the heart of the Sooke Thunderbirds’ territory last Sunday.

It was the fourth shut out game in a row for the Lions, who have kept their record slate clean so far with seven wins and no losses. The Lions have scored 352 points in the seven games they have played and gave up only 32 points.

Coach Bruce Neugebauer credited the special teams, who he described as on fire on Sunday. Their speed running up and down the field allowed the Lions to make quick tackles and the ability to take the ball away from the opposition.

The Lions allowed the Thunderbirds only two first downs.

“There were great tackles made by the whole defensive squad,” said head coach Chris Agostini. “It is truly amazing to watch all these kids come together as a team.”

The ability of offensive co-ordinator Brett Reid to gauge the other team’s offence has also been key and will be an asset to the Lions down the road.

“Multiple looks on offence are becoming the hallmark of coach Brett’s stewardship of the offensive regime, something that will be very useful when taking on some of the Victoria power-house teams later this season,” said Neuguebauer.
