·         Yesterday the OT Devils Football team travelled to McMaster for the Tier 2 Halton Championship against St Thomas Aquinas.  Although they were a tough and talented opponent the Red Devils out played them all game.  OT dominated on Defence not surrendering a single point with stellar play from Brett Switzer, Phillip Lombard, Brad Coulter, Tim Baljet and Cole Gronwald.  On special teams Adrian Van De Camp was exceptional with over 100 yards in punt returns and Riley Manning ran a fake punt for a 60 yard touchdown.  On Offence tough running by Josh Ince set up a deadly passing attack with Cale Cutcliffe scrambling out of the pocket and connecting on a pass to Javaughn Burke and Adrian Van de Camp, Trevor Ogilve and Riley Manning for touchdowns.  The players and the coaches would like to give a special thanks to Taylor Hurd, Taylor Black and Tavon Henry for being part of the team through the play offs.  Red Devils are Halton Champs!
