CFC50 High School Rankings WEEK 2: Non-Conference battles help settle some debates

29 programs hit the field last week, including some cross-provincial battles between Saskatchewan and Alberta to spice things up early in the season.

Everyone always wants to know how their province stacks up against the rest in Canada, so it’s always great when programs put their reputation on the line regardless of the results. Notre Dame out of Calgary took on Holy Cross out of Saskatoon, and it turned into a hard fought battle that saw Notre Dame come out on top 16-8. In our other cross-province matchup, Raymond tested their skills against another Saskatoon program in St. Joseph, and were able to overwhelm their opponents with a high-powered 45-24 victory. Kudos to all four programs for setting up some compelling matchups to find out where they stand amongst the top programs in the country.

In the same vain, it’s always fun to see programs head down south to really test their toughness against high schools in America, which is exactly what our top two programs did last week with differing results. Number one ranked Huron Heights represented the maple leaf with pride in their 21-13 victory over St. Mary’s in New York, while St. Thomas More gave it a go in Ohio where they fell 42-0 to Canfield. You never know how these games are going to end, but we do know both programs will come back with a brand new perspective as they prepare to take on their Canadian counterparts the rest of the season.

Elsewhere in Ontario we saw a couple massive non-conference matchups between Notre Dame out of Welland and Nelson, with the Irish proving why they’re considered one of the best in province defeating the Lords 35-13. In the other matchup top ten Catholic Central travelled to Kingston to take on Holy Cross coming away with a convincing 23-0 win to kickoff their season. Lastly Korah continued their dominance in Northern Ontario by taking down their rivals from Superior Heights 46-6 in their season opener. Get ready for more action from Ontario with leagues across the province preparing to hit the field this week.


Heading back to Alberta and Saskatchewan, the regular season is underway in the Edmonton Metro region with Salisbury taking down Spruce Grove 48-21, while Lethbridge prevailed in a non-conference battle 45-17 against All-Saints from Calgary. Across the border the season also began in Regina, where the reigning provincial champions Miller got off on the right foot taking down Winston Knoll 36-21. Perennial contenders LeBoldus also got out of the blocks with a 20-3 victory over O’Neill, while Riffel earned a spot at the bottom of the rankings with their 35-19 win over Campbell.

Quebec entered week two of the regular season with a big CFC50 clash between Seminaire-Saint-Francois and Saint-Jean-Eudes, but the Blizzard weren’t interested in any dramatics taking home a definitive 34-7 victory. Reigning champions College Notre-Dame held onto their top ten status with a close 21-14 win over Cure-Antoine-Labelle, which was enough to convince us the Loups deserve an early nod on the rankings despite dropping the contest. It’ll be very interesting to see how Cure-Antoine-Labelle stack up when they take on the likes of Charles-Lemoyne, who cruised to a 44-13 victory over Armand-Corbeil to start the season 2-0.


We’ve got action on the East Coast where we had a provincial finals rematch between Auburn Drive and Bay View with the Eagles coming out on top again in a tight 18-13 battle. We have a feeling this won’t be the last time they meet this season barring the re-emergence of Citadel, who saw their stranglehold on the province end last season. In New Brunswick the top two ranked programs took care of business in week one with defending champions Saint John take out Tantramar 21-7, while Kennebecasis Valley defeated Fredericton 41-0.

Exhibition season continued in BC where programs continue to jostle for position and figure out their final depth-charts. BC has the most comprehensive preseason schedules in the nation with two more weeks of exhibition games before the real competition begins, which provides us with a great look at how the rest of the season may play out. Last week we saw top programs G.W. Graham, Terry Fox, Vancouver College, Mt. Douglas and Lord Tweedsmuir take care of business, while Centennial found themselves in deadlock tie against Mt. Boucherie.
