Bertrand, Eisho star in OFC play

ofcBurlington Braves quarterback Jason Bertrand is week seven’s Outstanding Offensive Player of the Week in the Ontario Football Conference.

On the other side of the line, is across-the-bay rival Hamilton Hurricane Aram Eisho, who garnered the Defensive Player of the Week honour for his linebacker efforts.

Bertrand collected his first award of the season as he led the Braves to a 31-24 victory over the visiting St Leonard Cougars. His passing and running accounted for 326 total yards.

The Braves captain completed 15 of 23 pass attempts for 233 yards and three touchdowns. He scored a TD of his own on one of his five rushes for 93 yards in week seven of play.

Meanwhile, Eisho, the two-time Canadian Junior Football League Defensive Player of the Year, took charge as the Hurricanes rolled over the visiting Ottawa Sooners 40-17 on Saturday afternoon. The St. Jean de Brebeuf grad was credited with 28 defensive points. The 6’1” 195 pounder made 13 solo tackles, assisted on one and had a special teams tackle to round out an outstanding effort.

The Outstanding Special Teams Player of the Week was Mike Ingratta, kick returner for the Windsor AKO Fratmen.

Ingratta captured the special teams award as the Fratmen defeated the London Beefeaters 23-1 on Saturday. The Leamington native returned three punts 124 yards. The longest was an amazing 110 yarder that started in Windsor’s end zone.
