The Seaton Sonics lost 22-14 to the Valleyview Vikings in Interior Junior Varsity Foorball League play Wednesday in Kamloops.

Landon Colvin, who rushed for 289 yards on the day, scored both of the Sonic TDs as well as a two-point convert.

Taylor Pelletier, Brennan Kennedy, Kole Duval and Liam Funk provided solid blocking on the O line while slotbacks  Zack Boring, Miles Forest and corner Chris Haber tossed some key blocks in the open field for the majors.

On defence, Shai Baker was the big stick with 14 tackles, while Miles Forest had 11 and Thomas Mackiewich had eight plus an interception.

Boring and Nolan Cummings both racked up five tackles and Dakota William nailed his first sack of the season.

Defensive coach Lee Elliott was very pleased that his players made four goal-line stands.

“Every game we get better,” said Seaton head coach Ron Kirschner. “We still missed some tackles and blocks that we shouldn’t have, but we are gelling as a team and the guys are starting to really understand the game and how to work together.”

The Sonics host the Rutland Voodos Tuesday, 3 p.m. at Greater Vernon Athletics Park.

In other Wednesday action, Rutland stopped the VSS Panthers 36-7. No details were available.
