No. 2 W. F. Herman Green Griffins (4-0) v. Villanova College (1-2)
Four teams have tried, and four teams have failed, as Herman once again pitched a shutout game of football defeating Villanova 50-0. For those keeping track, Herman has now scored 172 unanswered points in 2016, and with the playoffs in sight they show no signs of letting up anytime soon. The wrap sheet for the Green Griffins consisted of touchdown runs by Branden McCraney, Tavien French-Robert, Marko Milovic, Elijah Trealout and Jason Beck, while #CFC100 Quintin Seguin added a receiving touchdown from Michael Beale to cap off an explosive offensive day. Cody Holmes made sure the defence did their fair share of lifting, returning an interception 20 yards for a major, and Zack Goertzen took care of the kicking duties nailing all seven of his convert attempts.

No. 5 A. N. Myer Marauders (3-0)
Bye Week

No. 7 Huron Heights Warriors (3-0) v. St. Maximilian Kolbe (2-1)
It’d be an understatement to say this game came down to the wire, as Huron Heights circled the wagons late to steal a 14-11 victory away from St. Maximilian Kolbe. Despite their efforts being recognized with a spot on the #CFC50, St. Max will be kicking themselves all week after conceding the lead late in the fourth quarter. The Mustangs were a wall on defence in the first half with the only big play for the Warriors coming on a 60 yard punt return by #CFC100 Danny McWhirter, but with just seven minutes remaining and an 11-7 lead – the wheels fell off. Consisting of nothing more than some good old fashion ground and pound, quarterback Colin Grant had his number called on every single play as Huron Heights marched 85 yards in five minutes to seal the victory. If high school football fans are lucky, this won’t be the last time these two #CFC50 teams meet this season.

No. 9 Cardinal Newman Cardinals (4-0) v. St. Mary (0-3)
St. Mary found themselves within striking distance down just 16-7 at halftime, but in the end Cardinal Newman was able to pull away to earn a 32-7 victory. Nicholas Petermann had a stand out performance for Newman in a hard fought game, rushing for over 100 yards and taking a screen pass 20 yards for a major. Other scorers for the Cardinals included quarterback Jordan Rimac who finished with two rushing touchdowns on the day, and Joey DiLabbio who took a handoff 17 yards to the house. Defensive back Kyle Chorazy made some noise on defence as well, snagging two interceptions to help extend Newman’s winning streak to four games.

No. 13 St. Roch Ravens (4-0) v. Our Lady of Mount Carmel (1-2)
St. Roch made it look pretty as they defeated Mount Carmel by a score of 56-15. Big plays were the name of the game with quarterback Deandre Rose finding Donte Waite for 89 yards and three touchdowns, while Joojo Paintsil hauled in five receptions for 91 yards and a major. The Ravens also enjoyed some flashy runs from their tailbacks, including a 21 yard scamper by Juwan Jeffrey who reversed field before tip toeing past the pylon for a touchdown. On the defensive side of the ball, Lesean Britton earned his way onto the score sheet late in the game with an interception on the goal line.

No. 14 St. Thomas More Knights (3-1)
Bye Week

No. 17 Holy Names Knights (4-0) v. Kennedy (2-2)
Despite having the first points scored against them all season, Holy Names shrugged it off as they went on to dismantle Kennedy 46-6. The Crusaders had no issues putting points on the board with Zach Herzog and Marcus Williams-Cooper both finishing with two rushing touchdowns, and #CFC100 Incho Choi throwing touchdown passes to Aramis Stavridis and Adam Cesare.

No. 18 Jacob Hespeler Hawks (2-0)
Bye Week

No. 20 Nelson Lords (4-0) v. M. M. Robinson (0-3)
Nelson improved their record to 4-0 after piecing together another offensive masterpiece in a 49-0 victory over M. M. Robinson. Each game it seems like a new player steps up for the Lords, and the man of the hour this week was Michael Lehmann who had a day to remember. Lehmann was on the receiving end of three touchdowns passes from quarterback Jared Currie, and capped off his performance by taking a punt return back to the house for his fourth major of the day. Also getting in on the scoring action was Will Corby, Zach Ihasz and Ethan Rolle, while AJ Schofield was perfect on all seven converts.

No. 23 Catholic Central Crusaders (2-1)
Bye Week

No. 24 South Lions (2-1) v. Oakridge (1-2)
Oakridge was overwhelmed on both sides of the ball as it took just a quarter and a half of football for South to reach the 35 point mercy threshold. The Lions shuffled in their backups after some impressive performances from their starters, including quarterback Ethan Martin who tossed a pair of touchdowns, and also took a quarterback sneak 48 yards to the house.

No. 26 Denis Morris Redmen (3-0) v. No. 27 Saint Paul Patriots (3-1)
This game was a true test for both sides as they set out to determine who the best team in the region might be, and in the end it was Denis Morris getting the better of Saint Paul en route to a huge 21-0 victory.

No. 28 Paul Dwyer Saints (3-0) v. Brooklin (1-2)
Paul Dwyer continues to roll after crushing Brooklin 44-0.

No. 30 Corpus Christi Longhorns (4-0) v. Christ of King (0-4)
Corpus Christi showed no ill effects from their week off as they took down Christ of King 33-0.

No. 32 Superior Heights Steelhawks (5-0) v. Korah (2-3)
Korah put forth a scrappy effort once again, but Superior Heights prevailed 21-15 for their fifth straight win and the season sweep over the Colts. Quarterback Noah Griggs powered his team to victory connecting with Kristian Shuttleworth for two touchdown passes, and completed the hat-trick with another strike to Issac Belisto.

No. 34 Holy Trinity Titans (2-1) v. Donald A. Wilson (2-1)
Holy Trinity threw the first punch going up 7-0 early after a 27 yard run by Brady Loenhart, but Donald A. Wilson showed off their thick skin coming out on top 21-14.

No. 35 Westdale Warriors (3-0) v. Dundas Valley (1-2)
Westdale continues to dominate the public football scene in Hamilton after blanking Dundas Valley 26-0.

No. 36 Etobicoke Rams (4-0) v. Central Technical (1-2)
Etobicoke once again clamped down on any offensive production from their opponent, handing Central Technical a 28-0 loss. On the flip side, the Rams offence enjoyed a breakout day with the running back duo of Justice Allin and Samuel Conteh combining for 135 yards and three touchdowns, while quarterback Max Melville finished with 200 yards passing. Daniel Diodati generated some points on defence snagging a pick six for Etobicoke’s fourth touchdown.

No. 37 Centennial Spartans (2-1) v. Guelph Centennial (2-1)
#CFC100 Tommy Nield did all he could to help his team pulling down a highlight reel touchdown grab, but in the end it wasn’t enough as Centennial fell to Guelph CVI by a score of 28-16.

No. 38 Holy Trinity Titans (4-0) v. Notre Dame (0-2)
Holy Trinity has now strung together four very impressive wins in a row after breezing by Notre Dame for a 56-21 victory.

No. 39 Lorne Park Spartans (4-2) v. Meadowvale (0-3)
Arriving just before kickoff because of issues with their team bus, Lorne Park remained unfazed walking away with a 42-7 victory over Meadowvale. The Spartans ran just 21 offensive plays due to a scoreboard malfunction shortening the game, but that makes their six touchdown performance all the more impressive. Lorne Park opened up the scoring with a 67 yard punt return touchdown by Sam Mackenzie, followed up by Chris Tyson slicing through the Falcons’ defence for a 10 yard rushing major. Meadowvale did answer with a touchdown of their own cutting the lead to 14-7, but that’s when quarterback Alex Lavric took over, tossing back to back touchdown passes to Ryan Davies and Will Manko. Tyson added one more touchdown to his total, while the final nail in the coffin came on an exhausting 104 yard connection between Lavric and Manko.

No. 45 St. Matthew Tigers (3-0) v. Franco Cite (0-3)
St. Matthew continues to rack up the wins after cruising by Franco-Cite 29-9.

No. 46 St. Joan of Arc Knights (3-0) v. Patrick Fogarty (0-2)
St. Joan of Arc’s offence exploded for 55 points as they earned their third straight shutout victory over Patrick Fogarty. The Knights surpassed their entire point total for the season which was hovering at 41 points coming into the game.

No. 48 St. David Celtics (3-0) v. Resurrection (0-3)
With nothing to lose and everything to gain, Resurrection came prepared to lay it all out on the line, but St. David stood tall coming away with a clutch 24-17 decision. Fans couldn’t have asked for much more in terms of entertainment with the game knotted up at 7-7 after two quarters, then 14-14 deep into the second half. The turning point came late in the game when quarterback Justin Henderson hooked up with Jahnei Powell for a 60 yard touchdown pass, which turned out to be the difference maker as the Celtics continue to reign supreme over the District 8 this season.

No. 50 Frontenac Falcons (3-0) v. Kingston Collegiate (0-2)
Frontenac had no problems handling Kingston City, running away with another 38-0 victory.
