No. 2 W. F. Herman Green Griffins (3-0) v. Villanova College (1-1)
Friday, October 7th at 5:00pm
Through the first three games of 2016, Herman has yet to allow a single point on defence while piling up 122 points on their opponents. With Villanova in their cross hairs, the Griffins are hoping to continue their flawless stretch and push their winning streak to four games.

No 5 A. N. Myer Marauders (3-0)
Bye Week

No. 7 Huron Heights Warriors (2-0) v. St. Maximilian Kolbe (2-0)
Friday, October 7th at 4:00pm
Huron Heights should get a good idea of what they’re made of as they get ready to take on an undefeated team from St. Maximilian Kolbe. The Warriors have had no issues proving why they are considered one of the best teams in Canada with 70-0 and 55-6 victories to open up the season, but they will need to be on their toes against a Mustangs squad who will be prepared to put up a fight.


No. 9 Cardinal Newman Cardinals (3-0) v. St. Mary (0-2)
Friday, October 7th at 1:00pm
Rested and ready to go coming off a bye week, Cardinal Newman will look to pick up where they left off versus a St. Mary team that is still searching for their first win of the season. The Cardinals will once again be looking for productive days from Jordan Rimac and Nicholas Petermann, who both scored touchdowns in Newman’s 37-7 win over Cathedral in week three.

No. 13 St. Roch Ravens (3-0) v. Our Lady of Mount Carmel (1-1)
Thursday, October 6th at 3:00pm
St. Roch turn their attention to Mount Carmel after a solid 37-6 win over St. Marcellinus last week. If Mount Carmel have any hopes of hanging around in this one, they will need to focus much of their attention on shutting down a deadly Ravens’ aerial attack led by senior quarterback Deandre Rose. A player to always keep an eye on when St. Roch is on the field is Joojo Paintsil, who has proven to be a big play waiting to happen and one of Rose’s favourite targets

No. 14 St. Thomas More Knights (3-1)
Bye Week

No. 17 Holy Names Knights (3-0) v. Kennedy (2-1)
Friday, October 7th at 7:00pm
Playing in a division that includes the second ranked school in the nation, Holy Names has kept pace every step of the way pitching three straight shutouts while accumulating 128 points – which is actually good for first place over Herman having scored six more points thus far. Kennedy has drawn the unlucky privilege of playing back to back games against the two powerhouse programs, with the Knights looking poised to hand them their second loss in a row on Friday night.

#CFC100: DB Incho Choi

No. 18 Jacob Hespeler Hawks (2-0)
Bye Week

No. 20 Nelson Lords (3-0) v. M. M. Robinson (0-2)
Wednesday, October 5th at 4:00pm
Nelson has been firing on all cylinders putting together back to back 50 plus point victories over Notre Dame and Oakville Trafalgar. Leading the way on offence has been Quinn Pritchard and Will Corby, who is coming off a three touchdown performance in the Lords’ 59-6 win over the Red Devils last week. A vulnerable M. M. Robinson squad who has yet to win this season will need to play near perfect football if they want to avoid becoming Nelson’s next victim.

No. 23 Catholic Central Crusaders (2-1)
Bye Week


No. 24 South Lions (1-1) v. Oakridge (1-1)
Friday, October 7th at 1:00pm
After a much needed bye, South is hoping the extra week of preparation pays off as they get set to resume their season versus Oakridge. The last time the Lions were on the field they walked away with a decisive 42-0 victory, and will once again be looking to Nick Morello for a big time game after scoring two touchdowns versus Sir Frederick Banting.

#CFC100: OL Spencer Nichols

No. 26 Denis Morris Reds (2-0) v. No. 27 Saint Paul Patriots (3-0)
Wednesday, October 5th at 7:00pm
In our highly anticipated #CFC50 game of the week, Denis Morris takes on Saint Paul in a clash of unbeaten teams who reside one after another on our rankings. Both programs are coming off convincing victories with Denis Morris defeating Saint Michael 36-7, and Saint Paul taking down Lakeshore 28-7. With very little separating these two on paper, it will likely be the team who can protect the ball on offence and take advantage of some big plays that will keep their winning streak alive. Players to watch in this one will be Cam Lang for the Patriots, and quarterback Travis Arp for the Reds.

No. 28 Paul Dwyer Saints (2-0) v. Brooklin (1-1)
Wednesday, October 5th at 3:00pm
Coming off a 52-0 loss last week, Brooklin might be in for another long day taking on a Paul Dwyer team who has outscored their opponents 48-14 so far this season.

No. 30 Corpus Christi Longhorns (3-0) v. Christ of King (0-3)
Thursday, October 6th at 4:00pm
After enjoying a week off, the Longhorns will be chomping at the bit to get after an 0-3 Christ of King team.

No. 32 Superior Heights Steelhawks (4-0) v. Korah (2-2)
Thursday, October 6th at 4:15pm
Superior Heights continues to make their second go around the division as they take on a tough team from Korah in week five. If this game is anything like their first meeting – which ended 21-19 in favour of the Steelhawks – then buckle your seatbelt because this may turn out to be a game that comes down to just a few inches. The man to watch will be quarterback Noah Griggs, who threw for 180 yards and two touchdown last week in Superior Heights’ 45-7 victory versus White Pines.

No. 34 Holy Trinity Titans (2-0) v. Donald A. Wilson (1-1)
Thursday, October 6th at 7:00pm
Holy Trinity will need to come prepared with their A game versus Donald A. Wilson who is coming off a 52-0 shellacking over Brooklin. Michael Drake was the star of the show as the Titans disposed of Pickering 17-6 last week, but with Donald A. Wilson already giving #CFC50 Paul Dwyer a run for their money this year, Holy Trinity cannot afford to sleep on their opponents heading into this pivotal matchup.

No. 35 Westdale Warriors (2-0) v. Dundas Valley (1-1)
Thursday, October 6th at 3:30pm
After surviving a hotly contested 12-0 game versus MacNab, the Warriors are hoping for a more productive week offensively as they prepare to take on Dundas Valley.

No. 36 Etobicoke Rams (2-0) v. Central Technical (1-1)
Thursday, October 6th at 6:30pm
This past week Etobicoke prevailed 17-6 in another close knit game versus Sir Wilfrid Laurier, making it two games in a row where they struggled to put a substantial amount of points on the board. With that being said, the Rams shouldn’t be too concerned with Justice Allin and Max Melville putting up gaudy numbers as the offence moved the ball successfully in their first two victories. If Central Technical wants to walk away victorious, they’ll need to be persistent facing a stingy Rams’ defence, and hope that this isn’t the week Etobicoke finds a way to turn their potent offensive numbers into points.

No. 37 Centennial Spartans (2-0) v. Guelph Centennial (1-1)
Friday, October 7th at 7:00pm
After showing off a resilient spirit last week in their 9-8 win over Bishop Macdonell, the Spartans hope to stay the course with another victory over Guelph Centennial. Look for #CFC100 Tommy Nield to make an impact at receiver with Centennial looking for a spark on offence.

No. 38 Holy Trinity Titans (3-0) v. Notre Dame (0-1)
Thursday, October 6th at 4:00pm
Holy Trinity has run into very little trouble so far this season, and with Notre Dame next up on the list, the Titans hope to keep their head downs and pull out another victory as they cruise towards a playoff spot.

No. 39 Lorne Park Spartans (3-2) v. Meadowvale
Thursday, October 6th at 3:00pm
With quarterback Alex Lavric leading the way, Lorne Park is hoping to add another tally to the win column when they head into Falcon Field to take on Meadowvale. The Spartans will be looking to carry the momentum from last week’s comeback win over St. Margueritte d”Youville, where they scored 21 straight points in the third quarter en route to a 21-14 victory.

No. 45 St. Matthew Tigers (2-0) v. Franco-Cite (0-2)
Thursday, October 5th at 11:00am
With a resounding 44-0 triumph over St. Mark’s last week, St. Matthew moves into the #CFC50 with a desire to keep on climbing as they search for another win over Franco-Cite.

No. 46 St. Joan of Arc Knights (2-0) v. Patrick Fogarty (0-1)
Thursday, October 6th at 3:30pm
After keeping St. Theresa’s off the board in another shutout victory, the Knights have now outscored their opponents 41-0 in their first two games. It won’t be an easy task, but Patrick Fogarty hopes to dodge the scoring drought that has followed St. Joan of Arc’s opponents around so far this season.

No. 48 St. David Celtics (2-0) v. Resurrection (0-2)
Friday, October 7th at 3:00pm
After some shuffling within the division to begin the season, St. David has prevailed as the team to beat coming off a huge 26-4 win over the previously ranked St. Mary’s Eagles. Don’t let the records fool you however, the Celtics will be in for a battle this week taking on another formerly ranked team in Resurrection. This will be a good test for St. David, and a win will go a long way in solidifying themselves as weekly member of the #CFC50.

No. 50 Frontenac Falcons (2-0) v.sKingston Collegiate (0-1)
Thursday, October 6th at 4:45pm
A new entry on the #CFC50, the Frontenac Falcons earned their keep with a 38-0 blowout over Napanee last week. Kingston comes into this game well rested after a bye, but will need to find a way to keep up with the Falcons’ high powered offence if they want to contend in this one.
