….and now let’s get to it with this week’s #CFC50 Games of the Week PREVIEW


No. 2 W. F. Herman Green Griffins (4-0) v. L’Essor (3-1)
Friday, October 14th at 5:00pm
Although L’Essor sports an impressive 3-1 record coming into this game, they’ll have to dig deep going up against a Herman team who has waltzed through their first four games. L’Essor will need to find a way to solve a defence who has not surrendered a single point all season, while also limiting a potent offence led by Brandon McCraney and two-way threat #CFC100 Quintin Seguin. If that isn’t a big enough task as is, they’ll also need to stop the four other Herman players who found the endzone last week.

No. 5 A. N. Myer Marauders (3-0) v. Stamford (0-3)
Friday, October 14th at 3:00pm
Feeling fresh coming off a bye, Myer will look to pick up where they left off against the winless Stamford Hornets. Boasting a roster chalked full of playmakers, the Marauders will once again be relying on #CFC100 quarterback Tre Ford to orchestrate their explosive offence. Some key guys to keep an eye on will be #CFC100 Tyrell Ford, Rushon Dagelman and Tyler Scholz.

No. 8 Cardinal Newman Cardinals (4-0) v. Bishop Tonnes (0-3)
Friday, October 14th at 7:00pm
Newman will be looking to flex their muscles going up against a Bishop Tonnes team still in search of their first win. The Cardinals had their first taste of adversity last week finding themselves up just 16-7 at halftime, but as all good teams do, they shut the door in the second half leaving the field with a 32-7 victory. Bishop Tonnes hopes they can have similar success early, but will need to slow down quarterback Jordan Rimac and Nicholas Petermann if they want to keep this one close for four quarters.

No. 12 St. Roch Ravens (4-0) v. St. Thomas Aquinas (0-3)
Friday, October 14th at 12:00pm
No offence is unstoppable, but at the moment it sure seems like St. Roch has figured out the formula heading into their matchup versus St. thomas Aquinas. In last week’s 56 point performance, wide receiver Dante Waite caught three touchdown passes, Joojo Painsil hauled in one, while Shay Wynter added another – adding up to a staggering five touchdown passes for quarterback Deandre Rose. Even if their opponents find a way to shut down the Ravens’ air traffic, running back Juwan Jeffrey has no issues carrying the load behind a monstrous offensive line. As noted before, no offence is unstoppable, but at this point it seems unlikely that St. Thomas Aquinas’ search for a W will end this week.

No. 13 Huron Heights Warriors (4-0) v. Brother Andre (1-2)
Friday, October 14th at 4:00pm
After pulling a rabbit out of their hat in a 14-11 win over St. Max, Huron Heights hopes to get back to their dominant ways this week versus Brother Andre. A couple players to watch will be #CFC100 Danny McWhirter and quarterback Colin Grant, who were both instrumental in last week’s come from behind victory. McWhirter racked up four solo tackles, three assisted tackles and a pass breakup in a crucial defensive performance that led to an 85 yard game winning drive, where Grant took over and ran the ball every single play.

Huron Heights defeated Downsview (Toronto) in a non-conference game earlier this week by a score of 56-0.

No. 14 St. Thomas More Knights (3-1) v. Bishop Ryan (3-1)
Friday, October 14th at 4:00pm
Bishop Ryan will present a good challenge for St. Thomas More who should be well rested coming off their bye week. The Knights will have to lock down #CFC100 Jacob Patten, while their own #CFC100 Michael Chris-Ike is due for another breakout game.

No. 17 Holy Names Knights (4-0) v. Essex (3-1)
Friday, October 14th at 1:00pm
Essex will need to hold on tight as Holy Names comes into this game flying high after a 46-6 win over Kennedy last week. With a week seven showdown with #CFC50 Herman creeping around the corner, expect the Knights to put their best foot forward with #CFC100 Incho Choi leading way after throwing two touchdown passes versus Kennedy.

No. 18 Jacob Hespeler Hawks (2-0) v. Cameron Heights (0-2)
Wednesday, October 12th at 3:30pm
Cameron Heights may be in over their heads this week when they take on Jacob Hespeler who are coming off a bye. While it’s hard to choose just a few players to watch from a versatile Hawks team, keep an eye out for Darrian Morgan and Devante Hudson who should make some noise on both offence and special teams.

No. 20 Nelson Lords (4-0) v. T. A. Blakelock (0-3)
Thursday, October 13th at 2:00pm
With their sights set on extending their winning streak to five, Nelson prepares to lock horns with the winless T. A. Blakelock Tigers. The spotlight will once again be drawn to the Lord’s high powered offence, which features quarterback Jared Currie alongside Michael Lehmann who is coming off a four touchdown performance versus M. M. Robinson.

No. 22 Catholic Central Crusaders (2-0) v. St. Thomas Aquinas (2-0)
Friday, October 14th at 3:00pm
After a long bye week combined with the holiday weekend, Catholic Central hopes to release some pent up aggression as they take on their rivals from St. Thomas Aquinas. The Crusaders will be looking to open up some holes for their running backs behind an offensive line led by #CFC100 Hamada Kanaan, while #CFC100 Daniel Valente hopes to provide a spark on defence.

No. 23 South Lions (2-1) v. East Elgin (0-2)
Thursday, October 13th at 3:00pm
After forcing them to flick the switch on the scoreboard halfway through the second quarter versus Oakridge, South looks to impose their will once again this week when they line up against East Elgin. Ethan Martin will lead the way for the Lions after an impressive showing last week throwing two touchdown passes and rushing for another.

No. 25 Denis Morris Reds (3-0) v. Notre Dame (2-1)
Wednesday, October 12th at 2:00pm
After coming out on top 21-0 in their clash versus Saint Paul, Denis Morris will look to continue their run atop of the standings with a win over Notre Dame.

No. 26 Paul Dwyer Saints (3-0) v. Holy Trinity (2-1)
Thursday, October 13th at 2:00pm
With the playoffs rapidly approaching, Paul Dwyer will be in for a battle taking on the former #CFC50 Holy Trinity Titans as they try to navigate their way through a tough division.

No. 28 Corpus Christi Longhorns (4-0) v. Frank Hayden (3-1)
Friday, October 14th at 2:00pm

No 32 Superior Heights Steelhawks (5-0) v. St. Mary’s (3-2)
Thursday, October 13th at 4:15pm
This game will be a derby between first and second place in the standings, and although Superior Heights is the favourite, don’t sleep on St. Mary’s who held their own in the teams’ first matchup of season. Steelhawks’ quarterback Noah Griggs hopes to carry over the chemistry he had last week with Kristian Shuttleworth after the pair connected for two touchdowns in a 21-15 win over Korah.

No. 33 Etobicoke Rams (4-0) v. Richview (0-2)
Friday, October 14th at 7:30pm
After seeing their hard work on offence pay off with some points on the board last week, Etobicoke will once again look to the backfield tandem of Justice Allin and Samuel Conteh to lead the way versus Richview.

No. 34 Holy Trinity Titans (4-0)
Bye Week.

No. 35 Westdale Warriors (3-0) v. Ancaster (2-1)
Thursday, October 13 at 3:30pm
Ancaster will be prepared to take their shot at the reigning champs, but it won’t be easy with Westdale feeling confident and home field advantage on their side.

No. 37 Lorne Park Spartans (4-2) v. St. Marcellinus (2-1)
Friday, October 14th at 12:00pm
It should be a shootout type of game as quarterback Alex Lavric and the Lorne park Spartans take on St. Marcellinus this week. The trio of Ryan Davies, Will Manko and Chris Tyson will be looking to make their mark once again after combining for four touchdowns versus Meadowvale.

No. 41 St. Matthew Tigers (3-0) v. St. Peter (2-1)
Friday, October 14th at 6:00pm
St. Peter presents a sneaky challenge for St. Matthew this week as they look to string together their fourth straight win.

No. 45 St. James Lions (4-0) v. Centennial (2-1)
Friday, October 14th at 7:00pm
After joining the #CFC50 ranks with an impressive 4-0 start to the season, St. James will need to buckle down as they prepare for a visit from the former #CFC50 Centennial Spartans. After drawing triple coverage at times last week, Centennial’s #CFC100 Tommy Nield will once again be the man to stop if the Lions want to nail down a big statement win.

No. 48 St. David Celtics (3-0) v. St. Benedict (2-1)
Friday, October 14th at 3:00pm
After St. David walked away with a 31-30 victory in their first meeting of 2016, this game is shaping up to be a good tussle between the top two teams from District 8.
