CFC Events

No. 1 Holy Trinity Academy Knights (9-0) – The Knights move on in the Alberta playdowns after their victory over Cardston, 36-22, in the South Tier 2 regional semifinal. They will now face the Bert Church Chargers to see if they get to the final championship game. Read game recap here.

No. 2 Sém. Saint-Joseph Vert et Or (9-0) – The Vert et Or beat Collège de Lévis, 17-3, in the juvenile D1b league this past weekend. They will once again face off against CFC25 Collège Bourget in the Bol d’Or. This will be another tight one as it was when Saint-Joseph beat Bourget, 20-17, in week 6.

No. 3 Vernon Panthers (5-0, 2-0) – Coming off their first round playoff bye, the Panthers will play Windsor in the AA Varsity quarterfinal set to play on BC Place. Will Vernon carry on and defend their provincial title from last year?

No. 4 Portage Collegiate Trojans (9-0) – With a 51-7 trouncing over Garden City in the D2 semifinals in Manitoba, the Trojans move on to the championship where they will face Miles Mac, who they beat in week 4, 23-21. This looks to be another close one and one you won’t want to miss. Read game recap here.

Who’s getting ranked?

For the first time, (CFC) is pleased to bring you the national ‘Small School’ high school football rankings known as the CFC25.

The CFC25 rankings considers all conference and non-conference games (in Canada and the United States) while scrimmages are not evaluated (there is no such thing as an exhibition game – those are classified as non-conference games) and forfeit* wins are not considered towards overall record.

How is the CFC25 evaluated?

Leagues/teams included in rankings:

  • British Columbia: AA Varsity
  • Alberta: Tier 2-4
  • Saskatchewan: 12-man 3A rural, Saskatoon  – 5A, Regina – Stewart
  • Manitoba: Division 2 and 3 Varsity
  • Ontario: NSSAA – Haldimand-Norfolk, BAA – Bluewater, COSSAA – Kawartha, COSSAA – Bay of Quinte, LRFL – Lanark-Renfrew, LGSSAA – Brockville, EOFC – Cornwall
  • Quebec: Juvenile Division 1b
  • New Brunswick: 12-man D2E and D2W
  • Nova Scotia: Div. 2 Nova – Sydney Academy, Horton, Millwood, Avon View, Cole Harbour. Scotia – Sackville, Park View, J.L. Ilsley, Central Kings, West Kings (***NS league was re-aligned Oct. 1, 2019. These are now the Division 2 teams and will take into affect for week 7 ranking)

The CFC25 is a RELATIVE RANKING that considers small school leagues from all eight high school playing provinces (minimum one team represented from each province) and the strength of the league. Additional criteria used to determine the relative ranking are the ability to accomplish winning a championship, the impact players and performers on that team (ie. CFC100s, CDN All-Stars etc.), and a team’s coaching and recent tradition.

The CFC Scouting Bureau consists of CFC Reporters, CFC Scouts, and selected local reporters and scouts who submit local ranking results on a weekly basis. The CFC25 is released every Tuesday (other than on Holidays) at 12 noon.

For all your recruiting and player news, we’ve got you covered with the most in-depth analysis and insider information you’ll find in Canada.
