No. 1 South Lions (6-0*, 1-0) – With another convincing win over bitter rival, A. B. Lucas, in the TVRA semifinal. The Lions are truly showing that they are the kings of the jungle with each week that passes by. Up next will be a rematch of last year’s TVRA Central final against CFC50 No. 48 Laurier Rams. We are sure the Rams will be on the hunt for this win. 

No. 2 Séminaire Saint-François Blizzard (10-0) – Did someone say climate change? No they didn’t….it’s still freezing in Quebec. The Blizzard once again took it to their opponent, Saint-Jean-Eudes, in the semifinal match this past weekend, 52-3. Surprise, they will meet again CFC50 No. 16 Curé-Antoine-Labelle Loups in the Quebec final on the 19th.

No. 3 St. Francis Browns (8-0) – The Browns are once again the 2017 Calgary city champs with their win over CFC50 Henry Wise Wood, 29-11. They are clearly determined to get back to the provincial final, but first they have to make it past the CFC50 No. 32 L.C.I Rams in the regional final in Alberta….(insert Darth Vader music here)!

No. 4 St. Paul’s Crusaders (8-0* final) – Lookee here, the Crusaders are the Anavets Bowl Champions for the second year in a row with their 35-0 win against the Dakota Lancers. This will be St. Paul’s 11th league championship in school history, six of those in the last nine seasons. This was their tenth straight appearance in the championship game. 

No. 5 A. N. Myer Marauders (7-0, 1-0) – It must be nice not having a loss for 28 games in a row! WHAT?! The Marauders came up with the shutout, 41-0, over the Greater Fort Erie Gryphons on Thursday night capturing the NRHSAA championship. The last time they lost was to the St. Paul Patriots in the 2014 season. They will go on to face the NCAA champion CFC50 No. 27 the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

No. 6 St. Thomas More Knights (6-0, 1-1) – The Knights have been relatively low key this season, just going about their business, winning week after week. With a 53-7 semifinal win over St. Mary’s this past weekend, they will go on to face CFC50 No. 18 Cardinal Newman for the Golden Horseshoe Athletic Conference playoffs on Tuesday the 21st. We all know what this matchup is usually like for these arch rivals. 

No. 7 Harry Ainlay Titans (10-0, 2-0) – In one of their closer games, the Titans still managed to beat out their opponent, the Salisbury Sabres, 20-3, to become the 2017 Edmonton High School Champions. They aren’t stopping here as they will once again face the CFC50 No. 44 Bellerose Bulldogs for the Alberta regional playoff next weekend. These two teams are no strangers, will the Titans continue their undefeated dominance and get to the promise land of the provincial final?

No. 8 New Westminster Hyacks (7-0, 2-1) – The Hyacks were idle this past weekend and now their journey starts in earnest as they will go into the quarterfinals on Friday. Their opponent – the CFC50 No. 47 Mt. Douglas Rams.

No. 9 Huron Heights Warriors (5-0, 1-1) – The Warriors were also idle this past weekend and will play on the 18th against King City for the YRAA Championship.

No. 10 Holy Names Knights (7-0, 2-0) – The Knights move on with their 47-4 win over St. Anne’s in the semis. They’ve got a matchup coming up for the WECSSAA finals against CFC50 No. 12 W. F. Herman, that one will be interesting to say the least.

About the CFC50

For the eighth year in a row, (CFC) is pleased to bring you the national high school football rankings known as the #CFC50. The #CFC50 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 #CFC50 evaluated?

Leagues included in rankings: British Columbia AAA Varsity, Alberta Tier One, Saskatchewan 12-man 4A, Manitoba AAA Varsity, Ontario OFSAA Bowl AAA qualified teams, Quebec Juvenile Division 1, New Brunswick 12-man, Nova Scotia Tier 1.

The #CFC50 is a RELATIVE RANKING that considers top tier leagues from all eight high school playing provinces (minimum one team represented from each province) and the strength of the league that they play in. 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 #CFC50 is released every Monday (other than on Holidays) at 12 noon.
