No. 1 South Lions (8-0*, 1-0) – In probably the most anticipated game in Ontario, the Lions weren’t handed an easy win as they have had all season with their 14-1 win against No. 20 Catholic Central. The WOSSAA Champions will now go on to face the SWOSSAA Champions, the No. 9 Holy Names Knights who are coming off a 41-7 win over St. Patrick’s. We think it’s safe to say that the Lions aren’t going to change things up and will win the Western Bowl at the 2017 OFSAA Bowl Festival.

No. 2 Séminaire Saint-François Blizzard (11-0 final) – 2017 Bol d’Or Champions (juv. Div 1)

No. 3 Harry Ainlay Titans (12-0, 2-0) – The Titans defeated the mighty Browns in the Tier 1 Provincial Championship in Alberta with the lowest score yet of the season of 12-3. Stealing St. Francis’ bid for a 3-peat, the Titans claimed the coveted title in Alberta and went undefeated with a 14-0 record. With the young QB that they have, this could be a start to a few years with the Titans as champions, something that we think will only fuel the already heavy rivalry between the north and the south. What fun!

No. 4 St. Thomas More Knights (9-0, 1-1) – The Knights are the GHAC #1 winners which earned their berth to the Golden Horseshoe Bowl in the OFSAA Bowl Festival. They defeated the No. 25 Holy Trinity Titans with a sound 58-18 score. They will now have to face the No. 10 Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Tuesday, Nov. 28th before they can be named Champions.

No. 5  St. Paul’s Crusaders (8-0* final) – AAA John Potter Division Champions – Anavets Bowl

No. 6 New Westminster Hyacks (9-0, 2-1) – In a thrilling semifinal game that almost saw the Hyacks get downed by the No. 24 South Delta Sun Devils who came back in the second half to almost overtake the game, New West managed to hold it together for the 52-45 win. Literally all you need is love as a “group hug” was all the team needed to pull off the win and earn their way to the AAA BC provincial final next weekend against No. 13 the Terry Fox Ravens.

No. 7 St. Francis Browns (9-1) – The Browns had a tough night with their loss against the (now) No. 3 Harry Ainlay Titans and were not able to defend their 2 time provincial championship status. While hoping to hoist the trophy in Alberta for a third time, the Titans spoiled the party and brought the trophy back to the North where it may stay for a few years should they continue on as they did this year.

No. 8 Huron Heights Warriors (6-0, 1-1) – The Warriors were idle this past weekend as they get set to play in the Simcoe Bowl against No. 36 St. Matthew Tigers set to be played on Wednesday in the OFSAA Bowl Festival this week.

No. 9 Holy Names Knights (9-0, 2-0) – The Knights were the victors with their SWOSSAA final against St. Patrick’s, 41-7. However, they do not have an easy game coming up as they will now face the No. 1 team in the country on the CFC50 rankings, the South Lions, in the Western Bowl. We are pretty sure the Lions will take that one, but the Knights sure as heck will give it their all.

No. 10 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (10-0) – In the SOSSAA final, Notre Dame Fighting Irish took it 42-18 over Sir Allan MacNab to get to the Golden Horseshoe Bowl. They will now play the No. 4 ranked team, St. Thomas More on Tuesday in the OFSAA Bowl Festival. We’ll see how that goes ……

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.
