Week 10 Power Rankings
#1 Sarnia Imperials (6-1)
The Imps were off this week relishing in their overtime victory versus GTA a week ago. The party should be over by now – time to get back to work. They have a shot to finish first overall but need to take care of business in Sudbury this week.
#2 GTA All Stars (5-2)
Something just isn’t right with the defending National Champs. I can’t put my finger on it but they have some work to do if they are gonna repeat in the NFC. This is going to be an interesting playoff scenario. Still a great team but missing that dominance they had last year.
WIN 21-10 over Ottawa
#3 Ottawa Invaders (6-2)
Well boys – after the dust has settled on your regular season. You’re still a respectable 6-2. Now get ready for playoffs and prove your claims to be number 1 in the NFC. It doesn’t take a genius to see that you’re going to have to go thru GTA in the semi’s. Best of luck!!! Excellent defensive effort versus GTA this weekend.
LOSS 21-10 to GTA
#4 Tri City Outlaws (4-4)
Congrats on the road win in Hamilton – clinched you a first round playoff home game. Well done! All year long – I’ve said that the Outlaws are a tough football team. Looks like you are peaking right in time for playoffs. And you will see Hamilton first round.
WIN 21-14 versus Hamilton
#5 Steel City Patriots (4-4)
Well playoffs are up next for you and a road game to Tri City in two weeks.
Maybe you underestimated them? Or maybe they simply played a tougher game? Going to be a great quarter final.
LOSS 21-14 to Tri City
#6 Sudbury Spartans (3-4)
Kept the perfect record at home going with a dominant performance over the Sault. One more home game versus top ranked Sarnia this week. This will be a good measuring stick for how far your program has come the past few years.
WIN 33-8 over Sault
#7 Sault Steelers (1-6)
Tough road loss with a short bench. It doesn’t help that your QB got tossed early in the game. Becomes a war of attrition and with your short bench – not gonna win many of those contests.
LOSS 33-8 to Sudbury
#8 Oakville Longhorns (1-7)
Another tough year on the field. Playoffs are around the corner and matchup with Sarnia in Sarnia. It’s playoffs time for you and anything can happen.
