CFC50 Rankings Week 3: Three new top 10 teams as chaos sets in across the country

Week 3 provided the drama we are accustomed to across the nation with some massive movement on the CFC50 High School Rankings, including three new top ten teams.

The number one team in the nation nearly saw their reign come to an end as Huron Heights fought their way to a 22-20 victory in non-conference action against Notre Dame from Welland. The Irish have proven they belong in the conversation as one of the top ten teams in Canada including their dominant victory over Nelson two weeks ago, while the Warriors will be looking to keep their unbeaten streak alive this week with another tough matchup against top 15 ranked Korah, who’re coming off a 31-7 victory against St. Mary’s. Elsewhere in Ontario we saw the regular season begin in Hamilton with St. Thomas More dominating Cathedral 57-0, and in the Halton region Holy Trinity defeated St. Thomas Aquinas 36-9, and Corpus Christi handled business in their season opener against Loyola with a 42-13 victory.

We saw a huge surprise come out of Regina where third ranked Miller had zero issues taking down their rivals from LeBoldus in a 32-0 stunning display, and convincing us they deserve to move up to second ranked in the nation. Their closest rival this year might be Riffel, who also improved their record to 2-0 with a convincing 42-7 victory versus O’Neill. LeBoldus will be looking to bounce back with a game against Riffel this week, while a matchup between Miller and Riffel looms in week four. The regular season kicked off across the province in Saskatoon with no surprises as St. Joseph defeated Centennial 44-0, and Holy Cross defeated Walter Murray 41-1.


We’ve finally caught up with the action in Manitoba where there’s been a massive shuffle in the standings to begin the year with St. Paul’s improving to 2-0 after back-to-back wins against ranked opponents Vincent Massey and Grant Park. The surprise team so far has been Dakota Collegiate, who’re off to a hot start with a 35-28 victory against Grant Park, and a 31-0 thrashing against Steinbach. It’ll be a very intriguing matchup when the Crusaders and Lancers meet this week with first place and bragging rights on the line – also a potential top ten spot.

As always, Quebec is the hardest province to predict every season with Academie Saint-Louis jumping up the rankings after pulling off a massive 18-7 upset over the reigning champions from College Notre-Dame. Saint-Jean-Eudes almost provided some drama with a big bounce back game against top ten Charles-Lemoyne, but unfortunately fell short of the line falling 35-33. That left Seminaire Saint-Francois to take the early lead in the power rankings with their 45-0 victory over College-Jean-Eudes, and now they prepare to take on Cure-Antoine-Labelle, who snuck away with a 19-16 win over College de Levis this week.

There was another surprising outcome in Alberta as Ernest Manning continue to prove they belong in the top contenders conversation after tying Raymond 34-34. Recently Calgary has been owned by St. Francis and Notre Dame, but it appears the Griffins might be able to shake up the division this season with a very talented roster. Unfortunately we will have to wait another month to find out if they can make it a true three horse race with back-to-back games against the Browns and Pride on October 13th and October 20th. Lethbridge are also off to a blazing start to the season with a perfect 3-0 record after defeating Carston in their first league game. The Rams are always hard to judge playing outside the major cities, but they could be a real threat when it’s time for the provincial playdowns.


BC still continue to settle scores in their lengthy preseason schedule with one more week before the regular season fully kicks off, but we still had some surprising results that shook up the rankings. Mt. Douglas came away with a close 28-24 victory over last year’s runner-ups from Terry Fox, and St. Thomas More make their first appearance on the rankings this year after easily defeating formerly ranked Lord Tweedsmuir 40-0. Expect plenty of movement to take place on the West Coast once the regular season finally gets underway with everyone gunning to take down the reigning champions from G.W. Graham.

Lastly on the East Coast there were no surprises with Auburn Drive taking down Lockview 28-14, but we have a sneaky feeling the Nova Scotia division is wide open for the taking this season with multiple contenders including Bay View and Citadel. Meanwhile in New Brunswick the defending champs from Saint John had no problem dispatching Harrison Trimble 42-7, and Kennebecasis Valley defeated Leo Hayes 42-0. It’s looking like it could be another two horse race between the Greyhounds and Crusaders this season unless Tantramar can wiggle their way into championship contention once again after dominating the province for the past decade.
