CFC25 Small School RANKINGS (WEEK 4): Another Alberta program joins the top five as B.C. falls

Did somebody request some movement? Because we’ve got plenty this week on the CFC25 Small School Rankings.

The biggest game of the week was a massive upset in British Columbia where South Kamloops came away with a 7-6 victory against former top five Vernon. This allows Holy Rosary out of Alberta to jump into the top five for the first time this year with a perfect 7-0 record including non-conference matchups. Also in B.C. we saw a clash between two CFC25 programs as Langley held on tight for a 13-7 victory against Robert Bateman, and are now the top ranked program from B.C. on the rankings.

In Ontario we saw a couple of fantastic games that shook up the rankings as Holy Cross took down Thomas A. Stewart in a 16-8 victory, while Delhi dropped their first contest of the season against Pauline Johnson, making for a wild race to the finish in Brant, Haldimand and Norfolk.

Elsewhere Manitoba earned another spot on the rankings as Springfield make their first ever appearance on the list after starting the year off 3-0 with another big 34-0 victory over River East. Vincent Massey out of Brandon also continue to leap frog their way through the rankings after keeping their spotless record alive in a 36-6 win over Crocus Plains.

Get ready for the real madness to begin in the upcoming weeks as playoff brackets are set across the nation … It’s going to be wild ride to the finish line.

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.
