CFC50 High School Rankings WEEK 2: College Bourget prove they are ready for the bright lights in DI

The action is starting to heat up across the country with conference matchups taking place in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick this past week. We also saw three programs head south to test their skills against American opponents, and a juicy cross-country showdown between Nelson and St. Joseph in Ontario.




  • Well that didn’t take long eh? After moving up from Juvenile DII to DI this year, College Bourget have announced their arrival with authority after taking down previously top ten ranked Charles-Lemoyne by a score of 29-7. You never know how a program is going to react when they step up, but right now it looks like College Bourget are ready to challenge for the top spot in Quebec this season. The Voltigeurs have to avoid any hubris with another important matchup against a very skilled Armand-Corbeil this week.
  • Another school to keep tabs on in the race for the Bol d’Or will be Saint-Jean-Eudes, who improved their record to 2-0 with a 33-27 victory over College Notre-Dame. Next up will be a key game against Charles-Lemoyne, who will be desperate to get a win under their belt after struggling in their first two contests against Seminaire-Saint-Francois and College Bourget.
  • Cure-Antoine-Labelle make their first appearance on the rankings after fighting their way past Armand-Corbeil for the 21-18 victory. They got shutout by Saint-Jean-Eudes in their season opener, but any team who overlooks the Loups this season will be making a grave mistake.


  • After taking down Lethbridge the week before, Bev Facey were in for a battle against #2 ranked Harry Ainlay in their first conference matchup of the season. Unfortunately they couldn’t find the same success with Harry Ainlay asserting their place in the hierarchy with a convincing 45-14 victory. The Titans will be looking to keep the ball rolling this week against a tough squad from Austin O’Brien.
  • Raymond were one of the programs that decided to take an early trip across the border to see where they stand against American competition. The Comets ended up on the losing end against Sandpoint out of Idaho, but the experience they gained will be invaluable when they hit the field against their top rivals from Alberta later in the season.
  • Ernest Manning, Notre Dame and Salisbury all took care of business in their first week of conference play. The big matchup to watch this week will be Ernest Manning against Notre Dame to decide who the top dog in Calgary might be this season.



  • Miller started off their campaign with a clash against Harry Ainlay that ended in a 23-23 draw, and they had no time to rest with a huge game against their rivals from LeBoldus to kickoff conference play. The Marauders handled the Golden Sun in a 23-2 win, but despite the loss, LeBoldus should come away with a bit of confidence knowing that if they can figure out the offensive side of the ball, maybe they will have a chance to compete with Miller when it matters most come playoff time.
  • The current kings of Saskatoon showed no fear traveling to Ontario to take on Nelson on home soil, but St. Joseph couldn’t get the job done in a tight 27-24 contest. It’s a statement win for Nelson, who will be hoping to carry the momentum into this weeks non-conference matchup against Jacob Hespeler, who will provide another steep test for a program who’re looking to climb the OFSAA mountain once again.
  • Holy Cross found themselves deep in the mud against the defending 5A provincial champions from Bishop J. Mahoney in their first game of the season, but they dug deep to come away with a tight 19-18 victory. It’ll be very interesting to see how St. Joseph deals with Bishop J. Mahoney on October 5th after they put a real scare into the Crusaders. It looks like Saskatoon will be one of the regions to keep an extra eye on this season.

British Columbia

  • Non-Conference preseason action continued in BC as every program tries to figure out where they stand across the province before taking on their divisional foes. Vancouver College once again proved they will tough to knock off their perch with a decisive 42-6 victory over Terry Fox.
  • It’s always tough to gauge where everyone stands this early in the year, but we got a little more clarity with a terrific overtime battle between St. Thomas More and Notre Dame. STM were able to squeeze out the 20-14 victory, but both programs should be feeling confident after getting the chance to test their mettle in a close contest against stiff competition in September.
  • We did have our first conference matchup that will count towards the standing with a rivalry matchup between Carson Graham and Handsworth in the Buchanan Bowl. At the end of the day their was no doubt who the better team was with Carson Graham lifting the trophy above their head after a dominant 50-0 performance on home turf. The Eagles will now fly south next week to take on Napavine High School in Washington.
  • G.W. Graham took the trip to Washington this past week to take of Prairie High School in Washington, and they should be bursting with pride after taking down their American counterparts by a score of 35-33. You never know how these cross-border matchups will end up, and the main objective is to gain experience – but it’s always nice to see the Maple Leaf end up on top.


  • Ontario is slowly coming to life with six programs hitting the field this week, and Korah are the first to register a conference victory with a 30-14 win over White Pines. The pride of Sault Ste. Marie are on a mission to win their fifth straight OFSAA banner, which would match the records set by W.F. Herman from 2012-2016 and St. Thomas More from 2015-2019.
  • GTA powerhouses Huron Heights and St. Andrew’s College both got off on the right foot with massive victories to begin their campaign. The Warriors took down St. Jean de Brebeuf by a score of 43-6, while the Saints won 36-0 over Brebeuf College.
  • Holy Trinity out of Oakville wasted no time claiming their first victim with a monstrous 60-0 over Frank Hayden. The Titans are looking to get back to the OFSAA Festival for the first time since 2014.
  • We wrap up this week’s coverage with the current GHAC title holders heading south to measure themselves against Fort Frye in Ohio. Bishop Tonnos weren’t able to walk away with the W, but they will be one step ahead of the competition on their hunt for a second straight OFSAA banner.
