CFC25 Small School Rankings (WEEK 6): B.C. program joins the top five, shocker in QC and hardware in AB

Oh Quebec, you never seize to amaze us.

Just when you thought College Laval was going to run the table, they suffered an unexpected 24-7 loss to Saint-Georges to end their regular season campaign. Thankfully they still hold onto the top seed thanks to their victory over College de Levis a week ago, and it might just be the wake up call they needed before playoff time.

Elsewhere there was some hardware to handout in Alberta as Medicine Hat were crowned Rangeland Conference champions after defeating Crescent Heights 42-7 in the finals. Over in the Rocky View Football League finals we saw Cochrane fight to the bitter end in a classic against George McDougall coming out on top 28-21 in an overtime thriller. It was a revenge game for the Cobras who suffered their first league loss since 2014 to the Mustangs, and now they’re on a collision path with top five ranked Holy Rosary to meet in the Tier III Alberta Finals if they can avoid any upsets along the way. Lastly we’ll have another championship bout to report on next week as Leduc prepare to take on Paul Kane in the Miles Division finals. After we take care of that bit of business, it’ll be time for the best part of the year as Alberta begin their provincial brackets from Tier I – Tier IV on November 13th.

We’ve also got some big news out of Nova Scotia as the newly ranked Park View Panthers prepare to put their undefeated record on the line against Lockview. The Panthers have outscored their opponents 398-19 this season and are coming off a win in the semis against formerly ranked Halifax West. Out in Saskatchewan we’re introduced to the juggernauts of the Rural Division this season with Weyburn making their first appearance on the list this year, while Sheldon Williams prepare to take on Greenall in the city finals. Finally we see St. Mary’s jump back on the list after defeating Owen Sound in a tight 8-0 contest.

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.
