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


No.1 W. F. Herman Green Griffins (6-0) v. St. Anne (0-6)
Friday, October 28th at 3:00pm
How’s the view from up there? Windsor is now home to the top team in the nation after Herman downed #CFC50 Holy Names 30-15 last week in a war between undefeated teams. More importantly, the Griffins have landed the first blow against their local rivals by claiming top spot in the division, but this likely will not be the last time they see the Crusaders with a rematch in the finals a very real possibility. For now, however, Herman turns their attention towards a winless St. Anne team to close out the season. Keep an eye on #CFC100 Quintin Seguin and quarterback Michael Beale who have been a deadly duo all season long.

No. 3 A. N. Myer Marauders (5-0) v. Ridgeway – Crystal Beach Blue Devils (2-2)
Friday, October 28th at 3:00pm
Meyer continue their rapid rise in the rankings as they prepare to take on the Ridgeway Blue Devils. The Marauders’ defence shined versus Churchill last week with Austin Potter powering his way to three first half sacks, while his linemates Troy Colosimo and Jackson Maves both snagged interceptions in a shutout effort. The scorekeepers should expect a steady day with #CFC100 Tre Ford leading the way for a dangerous Meyer offence that features Tyler Hildebrand, Jake Andrews and Rushon Dagelman.

No. 6. Cardinal Newman Cardinals (6-0) v. 12. St. Thomas More Knights (5-1)
Friday, October 28th at 1:00pm
In what has become an annual struggle for first place in the division, Cardinal Newman and St. Thomas More get ready to settle things on the field in our #CFC50 game of the week. Although both teams have displayed tough defences this year, it’s hard to believe this game will lack offensive fireworks. Leading the way for the Cardinals has been the strong play of quarterback Jordan Rimac coupled with a potent ground attack led by Nicholas Petermann, while the Knights answer back with some backfield talent of their own in #CFC100 Michael Chris-Ike and quarterback Zach Odoardi. Newman has had the upper hand in this rivalry in recent history, but that just provides more motivation for St. Thomas More to bring their A game come Friday afternoon.

No. 10 St. Roch Ravens (6-0) v. St. Marguerite d’Youville (3-2)
Friday, October 28th at 12:00pm
The high flying St. Roch Ravens look to keep their undefeated streak alive when they take on a scrappy squad from St. Marguerite d’Youville. Led by quarterback Deandre Rose, it was another offensive clinic last week for the Ravens who have now eclipsed the 50 point threshold in three straight games. While you always need to keep tabs on their playmakers Joojo Paintsil, Juwan Jeffrey and Dante Waite, another player to watch will be defensive back Lesean Bitton who has come up with timely plays on a weekly basis.

No. 11 Huron Heights Warriors (5-0) v. Markham District (0-4)
Thursday, October 27th at 1:30pm
With first place in the YRAA locked up, don’t expect Huron Heights to let up versus Markham District after outscoring their opponents 124-0 in the last two weeks. Watch out for spark plug #CFC100 Danny McWhirter who scored two touchdowns after returning from injury last week – who by the way, does not play on offence. When he isn’t drawing your attention on defence or special teams, expect quarterback Colin Grant to make an impact alongside Aiden Mielczarek who is coming of a three touchdown performance.

No. 14 Holy Names Knights (5-1) v. Villanova (3-3)
Friday, October 28th at 5:00pm
Left licking their wounds after a battle for first place earlier in the week, luckily for Holy Names they won’t have much time to dwell with a quick three day turnaround going up against Villanova on Friday. While they couldn’t get the job done versus Herman, the opportunity was certainly there which should be a nice silver lining and something to build on going forward. Expect Villanova to come out with some fight in their last showing of the season, but nothing will come easy facing a Knights team who will be eager to get back in the win column before the playoffs begin.

No. 15 Jacob Hespeler Hawks (4-0) v. Preston (2-2)
Thursday, October 27th at 7:00pm
Well Preston, take your best shot. After four league games this season, Hespeler has yet to surrender a single point and once again will look to assert their dominance as they run a muck across Waterloo County. Look for the dynamic pair of Darrian Morgan and Devante Hudson to once again lead the scoring parade for the Hawks.

No. 19 Nelson Lords (6-0)
Bye week

No. 21 Catholic Central Crusaders (4-1) v. Mother Teresa (1-3)
Thursday, October 27th at 3:00pm
Charging forward with Regina Mundi hot on their trail, Catholic Central prepare to push their winning streak to five versus Mother Teresa this week. With a potential first place matchup with Regina Mundi looming, the Crusaders will rely on quarterback Jake Beukeboom and running back Derek Aubin to direct traffic on offence, while two-way threat #CFC100 Daniel Valente should once again be a game changer in one way or another.

No. 22 South Lions (4-1) v. Central (5-0)
Thursday, October 27th at 3:00pm
Are you ready? This game won’t be for the weak minded as South look to take control of the division this week when they take on an undefeated squad from Central. The story to follow in this one will be if Central can find a way to score on a South defence who has not given up a single point all season. Racking up 12 sacks last week, the Lions leave no time for opposing quarterbacks to think, and will be looking to Dawson Elliot and Richard Morris to once again cause confusion on the line of scrimmage. On offence, Nick Morello has been a consistent workhorse all season long and will create matchup nightmares catching passes out of the backfield.

No. 23 Denis Morris Reds (5-0) v. Saint Francis (2-3)
Wednesday, October 26th at 3:00pm
The Reds hope for another all-around team performance this week when they take on Saint Francis. The easier question after their 46-0 win over Holy Cross was who didn’t score for Denis Morris, as Mike Domanico and Mason Kaminga both registered a pick-six, while six separate players marked their name down on offensive scoring plays. Watch for quarterback Travis Arp to show off his arm talent once again after going 6/8 for 116 yards and two touchdowns last week.

No. 27 Corpus Christi Longhorns (6-0) v. Jean Vanier (0-5)
Friday, October 28th at 6:30pm
With first place in the Richardson Division already clinched, Corpus Christi take a trip to the basement this week to pay a visit to a winless squad from Jean Vanier. The Longhorns will be looking to flex their muscles on defence after earning their third shutout of the year versus Loyola last week.

No. 28 Superior Heights Steelhawks (7-0) v. Korah (4-3)
Friday, October 28th at 7:00pm
Championship season is upon us with the first of many finals taking place in the Soo this week, as the Superior Heights Steelhawks take on the Korah Colts. Don’t let the records fool you, this game should be competitive with the first meeting between these two going down to the wire. The Steelhawks came out on top 21-19 in that contest, but with all the money pushed to the centre of the table, anything can happen on the river. Superior Heights will look to quarterback Noah Griggs and a band of playmakers consisting of Cooper Laframboise, Kristian Shuttleworth and Connor Breachin to get the job done on offence, while they look to Nick Wildman, Justin Cond and Andrew Batman to wreak havoc on defence.

No. 29 Etobicoke Rams (5-0) v. Lawrence Park (3-1)
Thursday, October 27th at 3:00pm
Lawrence Park has a chance to complicate things in the TDSB standings this week as they take on the well rested Etobicoke Rams who are coming off a bye. With a single game separating these two in the standings, the Rams will need to be diligent if they want to keep the top seed with just two weeks remaining until the playoffs begin. As per usual, keep your eyes glued to the running back tandem of Samuel Conteh and Justice Allin who are liable to break one at any time.

No. 31 St. Joan of Arc Knights (4-0) v. St Joseph’s (0-3)
Friday, October 28th at 2:30pm
Joan of Arc continue their march towards a perfect season as they take on the winless St. Joseph’s Jaguars. Along with a perfect season in the standings, the Knights’ defence is on a mission of their own as they’ve still not allowed a single point all year.

No. 36 St. Marcellinus Spirit (4-1) v. St. Thomas Aquinas (0-5)
Friday, October 28th at 12:00pm
Finding themselves tied with former #CFC50 Lorne Park for second place, St. Marcellinus will look to keep pace with another win over St. Thomas Aquinas. With just two games remaining and the season series over Lorne Park, all the Spirit need to do is win out to clinch the second spot in the division, which would delay a potential rematch with #CFC50 St. Roch until the championship game.

No. 37 Frontenac Falcons (5-0)
Bye week

No. 38 St. James Lions (6-0)
Bye week

No. 40 St. Peter Knights (4-1) v. St. Francis Xavier (2-2-1)
Friday, October 28th at 1:00pm
With first place still hanging in the balance, St. Peter hopes to stave off St. Francis Xavier to lock up top seed in Ottawa heading into the playoffs. It has been a rough go the last few weeks for St. Francis Xavier who have failed to score in back to back blowouts, leaving the door wide open for St. Peter to snatch the division title away from St. Matthew.

No. 41 St. Benedict Saints (4-1) v. St. Mary’s (1-4)
Wednesday, October 26th at 3:00pm
St. Benedict hope to be telling their opponents from St. Mary’s “better luck next week”, as a win for the Saints would solidify a first round matchup between these two teams. Players to watch will be quarterback Alex Douglas and his trusted sidekick Andrew Horscroft, who have delivered standout performances all year long for St. Benedict.

No. 45 St. Maximilian Kolbe Mustangs (3-1) v. King City (2-2)
Thursday, October 27th at 4:00pm
It seems like forever and a day ago that St. Max took part in a live football game – 20 days to be exact – but the Mustangs will finally get a chance to release some bottled up aggression this week when they take on King City. This game will have huge implication in the standings with St. Max currently tied with Bill Crothers in second place, while King City lurks in the shadows looking for a way to further muddy the waters.

No. 48 North Park Trojans (5-0) v. Pauline Johnson (2-3) 
Thursday, October 27th – Semi-Finals
North Park hope their first appearance on the #CFC50 isn’t the last as they look to punch their ticket to the Brant County finals with a win over Pauline Johnson.

No. 50 Sir Wilfrid Laurier Rams (4-0) v. Tillsonburg (0-4)
Thursday, October 27th at 3:00pm
Defence has been the name of the game for Sir Wilfrid Laurier who make a late, but timely first appearance on the #CFC50. Over the course of four straight wins, Laurier have not allowed the privilege of more than 10 points to any opponent from the Darnell Division, which is apart of the perennially strong TVDSB football scene. Tillsonburg will be in for a long day as the Rams look to keep a firm grip on first place with just two weeks remaining in the regular season.
