CFC Prospect Game 2019

Nominate a player

No. 1 St. Thomas More (8-0, 0-1) – The Knights had a busy week with two games played. The first, they won 47-0 against Cathedral for the HWCD semifinal and then went on to beat CFC50 Cardinal Newman in the final. These performances have earned them the right to compete for one of two bids to represent GHAC in the OFSAA Bowl. And compete they will against CFC50 No. 19, the Nelson Lords who are also undefeated at 7-0. CFC predicts that STM won’t be giving up the number 1 spot anytime soon, but with how things went this last week, we may be eating our words.

No. 2 Harry Ainlay (8-0, 2-0) – The Edmonton city championship was a rematch of the CFC50 Salisbury Sabres who lost to the Titans in week 7, 10-26. This past week’s result was not much different with the final score being 25-7 for Harry Ainlay. Ainlay moves on in the Alberta playdowns and will face the Lindsay Thurber Raiders (8-2) in the north regional finals. The winner of this game will go on to the Alberta Bowl Tier 1 provincial finals on Nov. 24th.

No 3. Catholic Central (7-0, 2-1) – CCH had a solid win over St. Joseph’s, 38-6 for the London District final. They will now for for the WOSSAA final against CFC50 No. 6 A.B Lucas who is also undefeated at 8-0.

No. 4 W.F. Herman (6-0) – Herman has slowly worked their way up the CFC50 rankings all season – just handling their business. They beat Sandwich, 39-14, this past week in the WECSSAA semifinal. They will challenge Holy Names (7-1) in the final. These two teams met back in week 4 where Herman beat Holy Names, 17-9.

No. 5 Seminaire Saint-Francois (9-1) – Look who’s back on top in the juvenile division 1 league in Quebec. They beat Cure-Antoine-Labelle, 39-29, for the chance to once again compete in the Bol d’Or. After the surprising upset of the CFC50s College Jean-Eudes/Saint-Jean-Eudes game last week where College Jean-Eudes (6-4) was the victor, the Blizzard will play CJE for the provincial title.

No. 6 A.B Lucas (8-0, 2-0) – In what sounded like it a tough, defensive battle, the Vikings defeated CFC50 No. 24 London South in the TVRA final and lived to see another day. Whether they like what that day looks or not is the question as they will now face CFC50 No. 3, the Catholic Central Crusaders in the WOSSAA final.

No. 7 Lord Tweedsmuir (6-0, 1-1) – It starts to heat up now in British Columbia with the wild card round done and on to the quarterfinals. Tweedy was on a bye for that round and now get back to work against the New Westminster Hyacks (5-3, 1-1) who are coming out of the wild card round with a win against Abbotsford, 44-7. This will be the first time these two teams have played each other since 2012 at the senior level. They match up pretty well with boatloads of athletes. Look for an acrobatic show!

No. 8 Vincent Massey WPG (9-0-1, 1-0) – Congratulations are in order for the Trojans as they are the new Manitoba AAA provincial champions as they beat the CFC50 No. 16 St. Paul’s. How this went down in nothing short of epic as the Trojans scored a touchdown late in the 4th to give them the lead 28-25. The Crusaders had their chance to kick the field goal and tie it up to send them into OT, but the kick was blocked and the Trojans came out the victors. We can only imagine the elation and devastation from both teams, but that’s why we love playoffs. We’ll be seeing these two back at it next season.

No. 9 Notre Dame CGY (8-0, 0-1) – The Pride also played two games this past week; one against Bishop O’Byrne, 32-3, and CFC50 Henry Wise Wood, 29-12 for the Calgary city final. They will go on to play the CFC50 St. Francis Browns (4-2) – another rematch from earlier in the season. You may recall they won that thriller, 14-10, at McMahon Stadium. The Browns will try to earn the right to get back to the Alberta Bowl, but they will have to get by the Pride first in the south regional semifinal.

No. 10 Miller (8-2) – And then there was Miller. Say hello to the 2018 Saskatchewan 4a 12-man provincial champions as they went on to beat soundly the CFC50 No. 43, the Centennial Chargers from Saskatoon. The final score of that game was 45-0. The last time Miller won the championship was back in 1971 when they beat Evan Hardy, 33-7. Congratulations to the Marauders.

Who’s getting ranked?

For the ninth 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 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.

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.
