·         Yesterday the Varsity football team played TA Blakelock at McMaster University, in the Halton Tier 2 Finals.  It was a very close game with both teams playing stout defence.  OT scored first with a touchdown pass from Judhis Lily to Simon Davis.  Blakelock tied the game going into halftime.  Jack Morris led the team in rushing with 91 yards and Judhis Lilly rushed for 83 yards and the go ahead Touchdown.  With minutes to go Blakelock was threatening to take the lead but Davis Boulding caused a fumble to end one drive and then with seconds left and Blakelock attempting a pass in the endzone, Miles O’Sullivan sealed the victory with an interception and a 20 yard return.  Special thanks to Declan Helmkay who gave up his cleats so a teammate could play. 


·         Yesterday the swim team participated in our second swim meet at McMaster with excellent swims across the board.  It was a great day for OT swim with many personal bests.
