[#CFCscores for BC]

Mount Douglas Rams

No. 21 Mount Douglas Rams (34), John Barsby (18) Fri Sept. 9th

AA power John Barsby jumped out to an early lead and were competitive throughout, however, Mt. Douglas showed why they are champions as they rattled off 27 consecutive points to blow past Barsby. The Mt. Douglas comeback was led by their QB Gideone Kremler, and RB Ben Pierik who rushed for 136/yds and 3 TD’s. This game was surprising when you consider that many felt Barsby would be blown out by the AAA provincial champions.

No. 10 Terry Fox Ravens (21), No. 11 Vancouver College Fighting Irish (22) Fri. Sept 9th

In a tightly contested game between the top 2 ranked teams in BC, the Fighting Irish came out with the win. The game itself wasn’t decided until late in the 4th quarter when the Irish scored what would be the winning TD with only 2:10 remaining on the clock. This was a typical contest between two physical, athletic teams where the focal point was running the ball and playing good defense.

Many of the key players from both teams showed up in this game. #CFC100 Jeremy Kankolongo from Terry Fox, carried the ball 19 times for 112/yds. His lone TD came on 28/yd run in the 3rd quarter. On the other side of the ball, VC’s RB Michael Le out rushed Kankolongo piling up 153/yds on the ground and 2 TDs.


Mercer Stadium New West

No. 30 New Westminster Hyacks (28), No. 7 Notre Dame Pride (19) Fri. Sept. 9th

A banged up New West team defeated No. 7 ND in front of a packed house of over 1000 fans at Mercer Stadium. New West had starters in the first half and backups for most of the 2nd half. The Hyacks also played without 3 of their top 4 RBs, all of whom also play LB. The offense was led by gr. 10 RB Broxx Comia who had 227/yds rushing on 12 carries with 2 TD’s. Comia was replacing the injured Sammy Sidhu. #CFC100 Trew Dancey scored an 8/yd TD late in the fourth.

“It was a good experience for us to play one of the top programs in Canada. There is no doubt that the rules adjustment and the fact that we had played last week was an advantage for us.” said Head Coach Coach Lalji. “We took a step forward today against a good physical team. Our penalties, turnovers and missed tackles were way down. Also given the kids we were missing, it was nice to see others like Broxx step up.”

No. 43 Notre Dame Jugglers (6), STMC (28) Fri. Sept. 9th

These two arch rivals renewed their feud on the field in what many thought would be a cake walk for the ND Jugglers. STMC shocked the Jugglers beating them by 3+ touchdowns as they were led by Tyler Eckert who rushed for 100+/yds and scored 3 TD’s on the ground. Notre Dame was plagued by an inefficient offense and critical turnovers. ND will be looking to rebound next week.

Bev Facey Falcons

No. 3 Bev Facey (55), Ross Sheppard (0) Thurs. Sept. 8th

Bev Facey and Ross Sheppard squared off on Thursday night, however, the outcome of the game was heavily in favour of Facey who took a large first half lead into the second quarter finishing the game 55-0. #CFC100 Chubba Hubbard had 10 caries for 142/yds with 2 TD’s, 1 reception for 19/yds with another TD and was pulled from the game in the middle of the 3rd when the score was no longer in doubt.

No. 1 St. Francis Browns (33), No. 48 L.C.I. Rams (6)  Sat. Sept 10th

The Browns smothered LCI with a solid defensive effort led by its linebacking core that featured #CFC100 LB Joe Dutton who had 5 tackles, 1 sack, 1 TFL, 1 INT, and 1 forced fumble. On offense, the Brown’s relied heavily on their running game which saw Ethan Moroz rush for 100+ yards and 2 TD’s. The Browns still passed for 200/yds even though 2 of their starting receivers were out of the lineup, one of them being #CFC100 REC Jacob Izquierdo.

Campbell Tartans


No. 4 Leboldus Golden Suns (42), No. 18 Campbell Tartans (22) Wed. Sept. 7th

Leboldus doubled up provincial rival the Campbell Tartans. Campbell was unable to stop Leboldus’ offense as the Suns accumulated 437/yds of total offense, averaged over 7/yds per carry on the ground, and accumulated close to 250/yds through the air. This, in addition, with an outstanding individual performance by #CFC100 LB Nick Cross who had 6.5 solo tackles, 1 QB sack, 1 fumble recovery, and also blocked a kick. Offensively, Leboldus was lead on the ground by #CFC100 RB Semba Mbasela who had 17 carries for 133 yds, averaging 7.82/yds per carry, and scored a key TD.



No. 28 Holy Cross Crusaders (30), Marion Graham Falcons (7) Thurs. Sept. 8th

In a game where both offenses were held below 300 total yds, the Crusaders took advantage of a Marion Graham secondary that could not cover David Solie who had 7 receptions going for 126/yds and 3 TD’s. Solie along with QB Jonah Bumphrey, who completed 15 of 20 passes for 183/yds with 4 TD’s. These two alone decided the outcome of the game which saw the Crusaders win by 23 points.

VM Trojans

No. 14 Vincent Massey Trojans (20), No. 17 St. Paul’s Crusaders (21) Fri. Sept. 9th

In a battle of the 2 top teams in Manitoba, the Crusaders survived round 1 of what could become a playoff matchup later on in the year. The game was dominated by RB/Rec Remis Shiovo from St. Pauls who rushed for 139/yds on 14 carries, averaging 9/yds per carry. He also caught the ball out of the back field accumulated 84/yds on 3 receptions accounting for 80% of the Crusaders total offense. #CFC100 DB Shae Weekes was part of a solid defensive effort that made big stops at the end of the game when they had to.

[#CFCscores for ON]


No. 6 A.N. Myer Marauders (26), No. 8 London Catholic Central Crusaders (10) Fri. Sept 9

In a battle of Top 10 nationally ranked teams, the Marauders jumped out to an early lead on the efforts of QB Tre Ford and brother Tyrell. Tre had 2 TD passes and his brother was on the receiving end of 1 which was a dynamic 88/yd TD. Tyrell also dominated on defense pulling in 2 INT. Aside from the Ford brothers, Jake Andrews from Myer, also contributed 2 TD’s, 1 TD reception, and 1 explosive 73/yd punt return he also took to the house.

The game was played in front of several CIS coaches on the campus of the University of Waterloo. The Marauders, put things on cruz in the second half and won the game 26-10. The two teams will mostly likely dominate all the competition in the regular season schedules and both will have a solid opportunity to win division and/or conference championships.

Lorne Park Spartans (6), St. Paul Patriots (15) 

On Thursday night in Niagara Falls, the Spartans showed their youth and inexperience in a 15-6 non-conference loss to the St. Paul Patriots.  With 38 of their 52 players just starting their grade 11 year, this might be the youngest team Lorne Park has ever fielded, and they looked it.  “We made a lot of mistakes tonight”, said head coach Scott Price after the game.  “Defensively we missed tackles, took penalties, blew assignments, and took bad angles.  On offense we had a lot of drops, three turnovers, we weren’t lining up correctly, and guys were running the wrong routes.”

For the second straight week, QB Alex Lavric connected with WR Ryan Davies for the lone Spartans score, but the second and third teams had trouble getting anything going.

After allowing St Paul to score on their opening drive, the Spartans defense settled down fairly well.  The Patriots were able to move the ball through the middle of the field all night, but there wasn’t much room to be had in the Lorne Park end of the field.  The Patriots put the game away late in the fourth quarter with their second touchdown after two Spartans penalties kept the drive alive.

The Spartans will travel to Toronto on Friday for their final preseason game against the Richview Saints.  This will be the last opportunity for Lorne Park to figure things out on both sides of the ball before the start of the regular season on the 23rd.

St. Roch Ravens (42), Lakeshore Catholic S.S (0)

On Friday September 9th , the St Roch Ravens travelled to Port Colborne On, to play a non-conference game vs Lakeshore Catholic S.S. It was a solid start to the pre-season for St Roch coming away with a 42-0 victory.  

DB Lesean Betton opened the scoring 5 minutes into the first quarter jumping a WR screen and returning the pick six 55 yards to put the Ravens up 6 -0. QBs Deandre Rose and QB Shaye Wynter split time at QB, producing efficient performances with Rose going 9-12 for 155 yards and 3 TDs and Wynter going 5-6 for 65 yards passing with a TD as well as a 40yrd run. They spread the ball around nicely finding 5 different receivers on the afternoon. Gabe Appiah-Kubi had 81 yards receiving with a TD,  Shaye Wynter added 2 catches and a rec TD and Aman Aujla had 2 rec TDs. Juwan Jeffrey and Deandre Taylor rushed for a combined 100+ yards with 2 TDs.

On Defense, Brandon Frimpong and Kadeem McFarlane helped keep the shutout in tact by doing a solid job of containing the Lakeshore RBs and putting pressure on the QB.

The St Roch players and coaches would like to thank Coach Tessier and the Lakeshore team for making this an enjoyable experience and wish them luck with their season.

The Ravens take on the Resurrection Phoenix this Friday Night to wrap up their pre-season before starting their regular season Friday Sept 23rd.

No. 50 Tantramar Regional Titans (40), Harrison Trimble Trojans (14) Fri. Sept. 9th

Tantramar came out and played very well early on. Harrison Trimble was out of sorts digging themselves into a hole the first quarter where they gave up a TD and quickly gave up another special teams TD. Once the Trojans settled in, they were too far behind and were unable to make up ground already lost. Throughout the game, Aiden O’Neal was, at time, unstoppable leading Tantramar to a victory.
