The Mount Douglas Football Rams recorded a win over Vashon Island this past on Friday.  After a sluggish first half, the Rams exploded for 4 touchdowns in the 3rd quarter en route to the 49 to 12 win.

“There are still several areas to improve including cleaning up our penalties, as we prepare for challenge of facing top rated Vancouver College Fighting Irish this Friday September 23 at 3:30 pm at Mount Douglas.” said Coach Mark Townsend.

The Rams were led by outstanding defensive play of Quinn Jenish who recorded an amazing 18 tackles, 2 sacks, and 1 interception plus 2 catches for 52 receiving yards.  Spencer Meldrum was 2nd on the team in tackles with 8 plus 1 sack, followed by Soren Hallschmid and Hayden Naylor with 6, Jake Ounsted with 5, and Isaiah Cardilicchia with 4 tackles plus an interception and Mateo Hallschmid with 4 tackles.  Phil Grohovac recorded a sack and Gideone Kremler had an interception.

On Special Teams, Phil Grohovac was a perfect 7 for 7 in convert kicks.

The unfortunate news coming from this weekend is that Nik Schuck suffered a facture in his fibula from the game and will be a cast for a while.

This win wraps up Mt. Doug’s out of conference schedule as they open the season next week in what could be the biggest high school game of the season in BC as the defending National champs will face #CFC50 No. 7 Vancouver College.

We’ve had a competitive pre-season and feel were now ready for league play in the toughest conference in BC.”

No. 45 Centennial Coyotes (0-1) 0, No. 27 Henry Wise Wood Warriors (1-0) 38

no stats reported



No. 1 St. Francis Browns (2-0) 37, Ernest Manning Griffins (0-1) 0 

St. Francis continues to dominate Alberta. With a 37-0 win against the Griffins, St. Francis jumped out to a 30 point first half lead and then emptied the bench, putting all their backups in for the second half. The Browns got a late TD from their second team offense to close out the scoring. The O-line dominated Ernest Manning’s front 7.

For the second consecutive game, Ethan Morroz rushed for over 100/yds and added 2 TD’s. The game saw the return of #CFC100 Jacob Izquierdo who caught 3 balls for 70/yds. Defensively, the Browns did not let Ernest Manning cross midfield as they were once again led by their linbacking core Tyler Stambene who had several big plays including a recovered fumble in which he took back for a TD and also added an INT. #CFC100 Joe Dutton registered a QB sack and had a number of solo tackles.


No. 49 LCI Rams (2-2) 40, Timberlake, ID (0-4) 33

Lethbridge evened its season record to 2-2 with a victory over 0-4 Timberlake. The Rams piled up 455/yds of offense, throwing for 343 and rushing for 112. They were unstoppable most of the day, especially on 3rd down. Even with 4 turnovers, LCI still scored 40 points.

Starting QB Ryan Genswein was 9 for 11 with 236/yds and 4 TD passes. Most of his completions went to REC Tanner McLachlan who had 7 catches for 206/yds and 3 TD’s. The Rams also had a 100/yd rusher, Tanner Sudo, who had 105/yds on 20 carries.


No. 27 Henry Wise Wood Warriors (1-1) 14, No. 3 Bev Facey Falcons (3-0) 35

Facey defeated the Warrior 32-14 on the weekend. The Falcons were led by #CFC100 RB Chuba Hubbard who ran for 250/yds on 23 carries and a single TD. A solid evening for the No. 1 prospect in the country. Any time you average over 11/yds per carry, you are going to give your team an opportunity to compete in the game.

Defensively, the Falcons were led by Chase Avery who had 12 tackles, 8 of them being solo tackles. Avery was all over the field playing from sideline to sideline. Although it was a solid team effort by the Falcons, these two really stood out.


[#CFCscores for SK]


No. 45 Centennial Chargers 38, St. Joseph’s 8

The Chargers displayed a well balanced offensive attack that 181/yds rushing and 183/yds passing. They also had 2 running backs reach 70+/yds rushing and Matthew Baraniuk scored 3 TD’s on the ground while Zack Krysak scored the other TD on the ground. 141 of the 183/yds of passing was directed towards Heintz Willan who took 1 of his 5 receptions 68/yds for a TD.

All points were scored in the first half of the game as St. Joes’ was held under 100/yds of total offense. A lone bright spot for St. Joseph’s was the 1 TD scored by Keagan White in the 3rd quarter.

No. 4 Leboldus Golden Suns (2-0) 56, Winston Knoll Wolverines (0-1) 14 

As the Golden Suns out-gamed Knoll with 505 yards to 180 for the Wolverines. Leboldus had 256 rushing and was led by #CFC100 Nick Cross who had 114/yds rushing on 2 carries averaging 57/yds per carry while scoring 1 TD. The Suns also threw for 300/yds as all 3 QB’s played in the game, the average per completion was 30/yds and starting QB Donnelly, threw 4 TD passes.

Once again Leboldus controlled the game on both sides of the ball and so far have been untested. Hopefully Riffel can give the Suns a competitive game.

The Tartans relied on a dominate rushing attack to beat the winless O’Neill Titans 27-3. The Tartans scored all 4 TD’s in the second half as they ground out 274 yards rushing. Neither team threw the ball effectively, however, Campbell completed 5 for 14 passes, 3 going for TD’s.

No. 14 St.Thomas More (1-0) 45, St.Mary’s (0-1) 0

STM continues to dominate the HWCDSB league as they defeated the St. Mary’s Crusaders 45-0. #CFC100 Michael Chris-Ike had 100+/yds rushing and scored STM’s first TD on a 52 yard TD run on the opening play in the second quarter. He also scored the Knights final TD on a 6/yd run late in the 4th quarter. Jacob Baker rushed for 5 yards scoring the other TD for STM. QB Zach Odoardi hooked up with Savaughn Magnaye-Jones for 20 and 35 yards through the air. Kicker, Kevin Mutuga, connected on 3 of 4 field goals from 30+/yds, had four conversions, and a single from a wide three-point attempt.

The STM defense was outstanding on the day as they avenged last season’s loss to the Crusaders. “Our defence played amazing. We’re quite proud to shut out a team like that.” said head coach Claudio Silvestri.

“St. Mary beat us last year. But the boys were ready today. Offensively, we were a little rusty early on until our offensive line started to get in the groove.” Silvestri said.

St. Mary’s never really threatened STM and only once had the potential to score. One would get the impression that STM has the potential to go far in their league this season.

No. 6 A.N. Meyer Marauders, No. 9 Huron Hts. Warriors 

Unfortunately, the Marauders and the Warriors game on Friday night was cancelled. The Marauders arrived in Guelph and warmed up,  finding out just 15 mins before kickoff that the refs were booked for the wrong night.

The teams agreed to scrimmage 3 series of 10 plays each starting from their own 35. The Marauders took the ball first and scored on their 2nd play from scrimmage with a dynamic throw and catch play of 70 yds from Tre Ford to his bro Tyrell Ford. The Marauders also scored on their 2nd series of 10 plays with a 5 yd TD throw.

The Warriors were kept out of the end zone on their 1st 2 series on Offense. On the third and last series of 10 plays, each team subbed in 2nd string kids.

No. 24 Nelson Lords 36, St. Thomas Aquinas 6

Nelson opened the 2016 regular season with a 36-6 win over the Raiders under the lights at Nelson Stadium. A great crowd from both schools as well as the Burlington community was treated to an entertaining game on the field. The Lords opened the scoring early in the 1st with a touchdown catch by Will Corby on a pass from Jared Currie. The Lords defence would force a safety and a Jake Mitchell touchdown run early in the second quarter saw Nelson open up a 16-0 lead. Nelson seemed to have the game in control until an excellent run by the Raiders QB got them into the end zone to make it 16-6 at the half.

The second half was all Nelson as they controlled the game along the ground. Zach Ihasz scored early in the third quarter with a short touchdown run. Jake Mitchell would add his second rushing touchdown shortly after and Quinn Pritchard rushed for one of his own to close out the scoring. AJ Schofield added four converts on the night.

The Lords will host the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Thursday afternoon in a JR/SR Doubleheader. A special Thank You to the Burlington Teen Tour Band Drumline who attended the game.


No. 13 St. Roch Ravens 36, No. 20 Resurrection Phoenix 0

The Ravens shut out Resurrection holding them to no points and under 100 yards of total offense. St. Roch relied heavily on their rushing attack led by Juwan Jeffrey who rushed 8 times for 107 yards and 2 TD’s. The defense controlled the game holding Resurrection to less then 1 yard per carry. They also registered 4 QB sacks and 2 forced fumbles.

“Tough night for us. We went down without several key guys and first quarter had two more key guys go down. We ‎don’t have enough depth yet to cope with that. But they were very polished, well coached, fast and very good. They are going to have another great year. Our new guys battled hard and we will learn from this.” – Associate head coach Tony Chris, Resurrection Phoenix

St. Andrew’s College 27, No. 18 A.B. Lucas 14



Recap and photo courtesy: Cardinal Newman

No. 10 Cardinal Newman (1-0) 55, Blessed Trinity 0

Cardinal Newman beat BT by the final score of 55-0. Newman had over 500/yds of total offense and allowed less than 100/yds of total defense. Simply put, they controlled the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. Newman’s QB, Jordan Rimac, threw for 240/yds along with 2 passing TD’s, and 1 rushing TD. Nick Petermann led the team with over 70/yds receiving and 2 TD catches. RB Calvin Kelly added a 37/yd TD run and WR/K Ethan Bastarache had a 75/yd TD run to go along with 2 field goals and 7 converts.

The game was not very competitive as Newman will look to build on this dominant performance.


Recap courtesy of: UCC

Upper Canada College 14, St. Thomas Aquinas 7

UCC played STA in a non-conference game where UCC was the victor.

Both defenses played quite well, while the offenses found it difficult to maintain momentum. Early season jitters and a lack of chemistry affected both teams.

The game was tied 7-7 at half. UCC scored the winning touchdown on an interception that was returned 35 yards for the score. 

[#CFCscores for NB]

No. 46 Tantramar Regional Titans (2-0) 45, Bernice MacNaughton (0-2) 0

The Titans beat BM in a 45-0 no contest as they scored 36 points in the first half. 1 standout of the game was Aidan O’Neil who had 5 rushing TD’s, 2 in the first quarter, 2 in the second quarter, and 1 in the third. O’Neil could have scored a few more TD’s if he had played more in the second half. Jake Vogels complete 5 of 7 passes for unknown amount of yardage that we can find, but did throw for 1 TD.

At no point was there any doubt that the Titans would lose.
