CFC50 High School Rankings WEEK 5: Potentially a new number one program on deck?

The puzzle is beginning to come together across Canada as the top programs separate themselves from the rest of the pack. Do we potentially have a new number one program waiting in the weeds?




  • We had some major questions heading into the week – and now we’ve got some answers. Saint-Jean-Eudes remain undefeated atop Juvenile DI with a 46-20 statement win over Armand-Corbeil. There were questions about if the Condors were nothing more than a paper tiger, but there should be no doubt anymore. It’s going to be an absolute war for the top seed in the playoffs with College Bourget and St-Francois waiting for their chance to knock off the top dog in the final two weeks of the regular season.
  • College Bourget could’ve easily regressed after a heartbreaking loss to Armand-Corbeil, but instead they’ve bounced back with some extra fire in their belly defeating St-Francois last week, and followed up with a definitive 45-14 victory over Cure-Antoine-Labelle. The victory has them back in contention for a top ten spot on the rankings, but they’ll need to avoid looking too far ahead to their matchup with Saint-Jean-Eudes. They will face a resilient College Notre-Dame squad the week before, and cannot afford to take the Cactus lightly, who despite their 2-3 record have been one of the toughest teams to beat losing by a combined 13 points in their three blemishes.
  • The defending Bol d’Or champions St-Francois learned that lesson the hard way this week with a scrappy 9-8 win over College-Notre-Dame. They’re still right on the heels of Saint-Jean-Eudes with first seed in sight, but they have a tough road ahead with Cure-Antoine-Labelle, Armand-Corbeil and Saint-Jean-Eudes remaining on the schedule.


British Columbia

  • Well that didn’t go as planned. All eyes were on the AAA Varsity Championship rematch between Vancouver College and G.W. Graham, but the Grizzlies simply couldn’t keep up with the Irish who ran away with a 50-7 blowout. Last year Vancouver College had some close calls throughout the regular season en route to the title, but this year it looks like nobody can compete on their level. They’re now preparing for what should be a massive test against Carson Graham, but if the Eagles suffer the same fate as the rest of their victims, then we might be looking at the new number one team in the nation.
  • Speaking of Carson Graham, they should be feeling confident after blasting past St. Thomas More with a 42-29 victory. They didn’t have the firepower to keep up with Vancouver College last season losing by a combined score of 85-28 across two contests including the playoffs, but that should add some motivation to any returning players who know what it’ll take to defeat the Irish.
  • It’s been an up and down year for Notre Dame, and this week they suffered another low with Kelowna jumping onto the rankings after a 13-3 victory. The Owls have been on a similar road being competitive in every game since the first snap this year, but now it’s time to see if they can bottle up the momentum to make a playoff run in the cutthroat AAA East Division. Do not sleep on Rutland or Lord Tweedsmuir making an appearance on the rankings later in the year.


  • After a one week hiatus from the rankings, Laurier returns after surviving a wild 26-23 showdown against South. It’s yet to be seen where these two stack up in the TVRA, but we will have a much clearer picture at the end of the month after Laurier takes on Sir Thomas Aquinas, and South takes on Catholic Central. Right now the championship is completely up for grabs with A.B. Lucas also in the hunt after a strong start to the season.
  • Holy Names once again made headlines this week after a 24-2 victory over W.F. Herman. Right now it’s looking like a three horse race alongside Essex and Sandwich, but the Knights can’t afford to fall asleep at the wheel with every week presenting a potential trap game in WECSSAA.
  • The Holy Trinity Titans out of Courtice are finally on the board after sneaking away with a 17-7 victory over Paul Dwyer. The Titans are one of the most successful teams in OFSAA history, but Paul Dwyer will be eager to spoil the party with a rematch in the LOSSA title game in November.
  • Bear Creek had a huge scare this week with Barrie North falling just shy in a 21-14 defeat. It’s looking like Joan of Arc will be a formidable opponent coming out of the Catholic side of Simcoe this season, so learning how to come out on top in a close game like this might be a blessing come playoff time.



  • Does anyone else hear the footsteps? St. Francis are beginning to creep their way up the rankings with another 34-0 blowout victory over All Saints. The Browns have always been one of the teams to beat in Alberta, and after a disappointing season culminating in a first round exit in the Provincial Playdowns last year, they will be hungry to get back to the top of the mountain. Ernest Manning will need to be on high alert in their regular season finale with St. Francis picking up speed every week.


  • It’s been a little while, but Oak Park are finally back on the CFC50 Rankings after a 40-0 victory over the Vincent Massey Trojans. Outside of their big loss to the defending champs St. Paul’s, they have been completely dominant outscoring their opponents 86-0 in three wins. They might not have what it takes to compete with St. Paul’s or Dakota, but we don’t think any other team in Manitoba will be able to keep up with the Raiders this year except potentially Grant Park, who currently sit at 4-0. We’ll get a better idea of what the Pirates are made of when they faceoff against Vincent Massey this week, and then Dakota to cap off their regular season campaign.


  • Campbell were flying high coming off a big win over LeBoldus, but they came crashing back down to Earth as Riffel fought their way to a 21-14 victory. We’re still looking forward to seeing how they compete against Miller this week, but considering Riffel had no answers for the number one team in the country, it doesn’t paint a pretty picture for the Tartans at the moment. On the other side, Riffel will look to capitalize on the momentum with a big matchup against LeBoldus.

New Brunswick

  • Remember all those nice things we said about Tantramar last week? Well it turned out to be a curse as the Titans fell 21-14 to Harrison Trimble. We’ve now hitched our wagon to Kennebecasis Valley as the team to beat, but if we’ve learned anything about the competition in New Brunswick since the pandemic – it’s to expect the unexpected on a weekly basis.
