No. 1 St. Thomas More Knights (4-0, 0-1) – The Knights cruise though another week with their win against Bishop Tonnos, 64-0. To date, they are 166 points for and only 16 points against in the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District. Cathedral, their opponent this week, currently sits 2-2 with 83 points for and 44 points against. The contest will be more competitive, but the remaining games should be victories. Then the path to OFSAA begins and we’ll see our current No. 1 work its way back to the tournament…or not.

No. 2 Harry Ainlay Titans (4-0, 2-0) – The Titans came away with another easy win, 56-1 against Spruce Grove this past weekend. All eyes now shift to Alberta this upcoming week as Harry Ainlay faces off against what is being touted as their toughest opponent to date, No. 22 Salisbury Sabres. Both teams are 4-0 in regular season play in the metro Edmonton area. Ainlay has 276 points for and only 8 points against, while Sal is right behind them with 235 points for and 14 points against. Both teams are loaded with CFC100s and other great talent. CFC will be on sight for this matchup, stay tuned for the game preview and live coverage.

“Finally, after blasting all comers in Metro Edmonton Division I by ridiculous scores, these two top dogs will meet in the most anticipated match-up of the season in the Edmonton area. Could be a preview of the Metro Edmonton Division I Championship on Nov. 9 at Commonwealth Stadium.” – Football Alberta

No. 3 Saint-Jean-Eudes Condors (6-0) – And now for this…the game of the week this last weekend in the country did not disappoint. In a low scoring affair with the condors winning 10-4 against the former No. 3 Séminaire Saint-François Blizzard, we wondered when or if the Blizzard would ever be unseated from the top 5. CFC100 Mathieu Roy had a game for the Condors carrying the ball 33 times for 231 yards and 1 rushing touchdown. This game would have been a defensive minded fan’s dream. Our hats are off to the Condors as their opponent is one of the best in the country. That being said, they go on to play Roger-Comtois this upcoming week who is 1-4.

No. 4 St. Francis Browns (2-0, 2-0) – As we said for the Ainlay / Sal game, in southern Alberta, we have the top two Calgary teams battling it out in a traditional rivalry game at McMahon Stadium. St. Francis was on a bye this past week, so they come into this game relatively rested. While they have only played 3 games versus Notre Dame playing 4, they have 111 points for and 0 points against. ND on the other hand has 166 points for and 15 points against. These two teams have a long history of playing eachother each year and usually it’s one of them that ends up in the provincial championship. We hear it’s a wild ride at McMahon as the fans are incredible and the school spirit of both teams is intense.

“Annually the game of the year in the regular season of Division I in Calgary. This year is no different as both teams come into this game ranked highly at #2 and #3 in Tier I respectively. As usual, McMahon Stadium needs to come into use as the crowds for this game far outstrip what can be accommodated elsewhere.” Football Alberta

No. 5 Catholic Central Crusaders (3-0, 1-1) – Catholic Central shut our St. Andre Bessette, 44-0, this past weekend. They remain undefeated and will face the other undefeated team in their league, Regina Mundi. Both these teams seem fairly matched up in points for , 82 for RM and 73 for CCH, however it’s the points against that are the difference with CCH only allowing 3 points against and Regina Mundi, 20. This should be a good game to get to in the London, Ontario region.

No. 6 W.F. Herman Green Griffins (3-0) – In our other game of the week this past weekend, the Green Griffins managed to unseat Holy Names from the top 10, 17-9. With only 12 points against, the green machine remains undefeated in the AA Tier 2 league. Holy Names is AAA Tier 1, so hats off to them. Herman goes on to play Vincent Massey this up coming week who sits at 2-1 in AA.

No. 7 Séminaire Saint-François Blizzard (4-1) – The Blizzard, no doubt, walked away from this one, as they lost to Saint-Jean-Eudes 10-4, with heavy hearts being fierce competitors, but we think they should hold their heads high as they do football a great justice with the program that they have. CFC100 Mohamed Elshal came away with 9.5 tackles with help from Simon Larouche with 7 tackles. Quarterback Thomas Girard had a tough day with 3 interceptions which could have made the difference in the scoreboard. However, we don’t think that this is the end of these two teams meeting again. The bol d’Or is the ultimate goal and we believe that these two will be back at it for that. The Blizzard will face Charles-Lemoyne this week.

No. 8 A.B Lucas Vikings (3-0, 2-0) – The Vikings remain undefeated and climb in the top 10 with their win over Parkside Collegiate, 45-10. They will meet up against East Elgin this weekend who are 1-2.

No. 9 Leboldus Golden Suns (5-0, 0-1) – Leboldus has cracked the top 10 with their recent win over No. 44 Miller with a final score of 34-29. These two teams have played each other twice now, with Leboldus winning each time, but not more than a score. They have been tight games and, no doubt, uber competitive. It won’t get that much easier this next week as they meet a strong Riffel team (4-1) in the Regina, Saskatchewan area.

No. 10 Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers (3-0, 1-1) – This week in BC was a wild one. The Panthers are hanging on to their undefeated record in regular season with their win over a gritty No. 19 St. Thomas More, 27-21. They will be on the road to Kelowna this week for the Apple Bowl where they will face the Kelowna Owls who are 1-2 in the eastern conference of the BCHSFA.

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.
