Playing to Win: Wettges dominate in OVFL Prospects Game (VIDEO)

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon at McMaster Universities Ron Joyce Stadium, the OVFL hosted in 4th annual ‘Prospects All-Star Game’, pitting the leagues best young football players against each other. With an opportunity to travel to Quebec and play a team of the provinces best players on the line, the Wettges Conference dominated the football game and earned themselves a trip east with a 42-7 win over the Adams Conference.

After blocking an Adams Conference field goal attempt early in the first quarter, the Wettges division scored the games opening touchdown on a beautiful catch and run from receiver Dejuan Martin. From there the Wettges players never looked back, building up a 28-0 lead at the half.


Raishaun Provo  (CFC Top 100) started at quarterback for the Wettges team and threw the games opening touchdown to Martin. Despite an extremely strong performance from their squad, Provo and teammate Joshua Henry (CFC Top 100) who also had a touchdown catch both felt they had room for improvement.

“I feel like I made a few mistakes,” said Wettges quarterback Raishaun Provo. “Overall I had a good game but could have cleaned up on a few things.”

“I did okay,” Henry added. “A couple of dropped balls but other than that I did good.”

The Adam Conference squad was able to move the ball fairly consistency throughout the game but were stung repeatedly by interceptions and turnovers that allowed their opponents more opportunities to score and add another nail to the coffin.

Farhan Imtiaz, defensive back for the Wettges was extremely active throughout the game, leading the team defensively with three interceptions and was awarded the defensive player of the game award for his efforts; Gurjant Singh (CFC Top 100) earned the honor for the Adams Conference.


With a total of 58 yards and a touchdown for the game on his eight carries, Kyle Amburlsley was awarded offensive player of the game for Wettges while D’saun Greenaway (CFC Top 100) earned the title for Adams. Wettges player Travis Pinto was awarded his team Most Valuable Player award with his two touchdown catches while Angelo Delsordo was named for Adams. Delsordo scored the only Adams touchdown when he intercepted a pass that he returned 50 yards for the score.

The game serves as a medium for these talented young athletes to showcase their skills infront of friends, family and also a large collection of Canadian university scouts that are invited by OVFL president Marie Jackson.

“When you have the best [players] on both sides of the ball, you can really compare how talented these players really are,” said OVFL President Marie Jackson. “The scouts get to see the best from both sides of the ball.”


With the Wettges Conference earning the victory, they will now travel to Quebec in two weeks to play another all-star game against one of the provinces squads. While most Wettges players were unaware of what type of team the Quebec squad is like, they did not sound scared.

“I just found out today that we would be playing them,” Provo stated after the game. “We just got to go their and do what we did here today; just play, and finish.”
