CFC25 Small School RANKINGS (WEEK 5): College Laval establishes their dominance in Quebec

Taking care of business is the theme of the week for the CFC25 Small School Rankings.

For the most part, that means the majority of our ranked programs having a flawless week but it meant a little bit more in Quebec. College Laval and College de Levis have been on a collision course all year long, and we finally got the explosive matchup we’ve been waiting for with College Laval pulling away with the 19-13 victory. The win means College Laval have secured the top seed in the playoffs, and with only one week left in the regular season, it’s possible we get a rematch very soon with some hardware on the line.

Our other big matchup of the week saw Crestwood earn a spot on the rankings after dispatching Thomas A. Stewart in a tight 10-7 contest. Both teams are still hoping to find a way past Holy Cross who continue to dominate with a 34-13 win over St. Peter, but only one score has separated the programs in their three matchups this season. There’s just one week left of regular season action before playoff time, and then there’s no more wiggle room at the top of the division.

Elsewhere some other notable victories came from Vernon who took down AAA Okanagan Mission 14-0 in British Columbia, while Springfield and Sisler continue their race for first place in Winnipeg with each improving to 4-0 on the season. L’Odyssee continue to be a dominant force in New Brunswick picking up their fifth straight win of the season 42-0 over Oromocto, and get ready for some playoff action next week as Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan kickoff their brackets.

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.
