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.
Week 9
BYE 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.
Week 9
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.
Week 9
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.
Week 9
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.
Week 9
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.
Week 9
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.
Week 9
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.
Week 9
BYE

Power Ranking – 2016 Week 9

NFC Insider – Power Rankings Week – 9

#1 Sarnia Imperials (6-1)
There is a new kid at the top of the mountain this week. The Imps marched into Brampton and came out with a hard fought overtime victory over the reigning National Champs… Congrats!!
Week 8
WIN 34-28 over GTA (OT)

#2 GTA All Stars (4-2)
The defending National Champs are knocked off at home by Sarnia. This game came down to the wire. This is the second loss of the season for the All Stars who once boasted about running the table. A little more parity in the NFC this season. Don’t count this team out – they have the talent and experience to repeat.
Week 8
LOSS 34-28 to Sarnia (OT)

#3 Ottawa Invaders (6-1)
It’s not often you win in a blowout fashion and drop in the rankings. But Sarnia and GTA went toe to toe like heavyweights in a championship fight. This ranking is not a knock on Ottawa – a top ranked team.
At this point in the season – they are still very much in the hunt. If they want to move up – beat GTA next week.
Week 8
WIN 57-0 over Oakville

#4 Steel City Patriots (4-3)
The Patriots travelled with a short bench to the Sault and scraped out a victory. A win is a win – you got it and you hold the #4 spot for another week. Good work boys!
Week 8
WIN 28-21 over Sault

#5 Tri City Outlaws (3-4)
You avenged the week 1 loss and got it done at home. Nice work!
This week the Outlaws will face Hamilton and what could be a first round quarter final matchup. Win in Hamilton and you secure a home game first round of the playoffs.
Week 8
WIN 28-24 over Sudbury

#6 Sudbury Spartans (2-4)
Another tough road loss and you went 0-4 on the road this season. Back to the warm confines of James Jerome this week against archival the Sault.
Week 8
LOSS 28-25 to Tri City

#7 Sault Steelers (1-5)
The Steelers lost a back and forth tilt against the Patriots. This week they travel up the road to Sudbury to battle the Spartans. This week could see them rise higher in the standings.
Week 8
LOSS 28-21 to Hamilton

#8 Oakville Longhorns (1-6)
The wheels fell off the bus in Oakville this week as the Invaders rolled overtop of them. Been a tough season with 3 sets of back to back games. Keep moving forward boys!!
Week 8
LOSS 57-0 to Ottawa

#2 Ottawa Invaders
The Invaders were also resting this week and will remain in this slot until somebody else steps up and knocks them down.

BYE

#3 Sarnia Imperials
The Imps took down the Patriots in the battle for this ranking. Now they get to face their old nemesis GTA this weekend.
Week 7
WIN 37-21 over Hamilton

#4 Hamilton Patriots
A tough road loss in Sarnia drops this team down a spot. It looks more and more likely that this team will finish 3rd in the East and have to travel to the 2nd place finisher in the West for quarterfinal games.
Week 7
LOSS 37-21 to Sarnia

#5 Sudbury Spartans
The Spartans had a rest week and now get to finish this season with three tough divisional games.
Week 7

#6 Tri-City Outlaws
The Outlaws were also resting last week. Gearing up for what will probably be a showdown for 2nd seed in the West with Sudbury.
Week 7
BYE

#7 Sault Steelers
Coming off a Bye week – the Steelers should still be running high from their road victory in Oakville last week.
Week 7
BYE

#8 Oakville Longhorns
This program has done well off the field but is still struggling on the field. Keep plugging away and they will start to see success on and off the field.

LOSS 31-8 to Ottawa

Power Ranking – 2016 Week 7

Power Rankings Week 7

Rankings #3 and #4 are close and will be decided this week when they play each other.

Rankings #5 and #6 are also a flip of a coin and will be firmly decided when they play each other after this week’s Bye for both teams.

#1 GTA All Stars
This team stays on top until somebody beats them. They are resting at home before the final stretch to playoffs.
Week 6
BYE

#2 Ottawa Invaders
The Invaders were also resting this week and will remain in this slot until somebody else steps up and knocks them down. But the next 3 teams are closing the talent gap.
Week 6
BYE

#3 Steel City Patriots
The Patriots beat Sudbury for the first time in their short history. Looks like they cleaned up in the penalty department. Well done boys!!
Week 6
WIN 28-21 over Sudbury

#4 Sarnia Imperials
They came back after last week’s defeat and took care of TCO. They got their offence moving and the Wright – Lounsbury combo were getting it done. Big game this week.
Week 6
WIN 42-23 over Tri City

#5 Sudbury Spartans
They travelled light to Steel City and couldn’t get it done. This one went down to the wire. And they hung with a top 3 team for 4 quarters.
Week 6
LOSS 28-21 to Hamilton

#6 Tri City Outlaws
They struggled against Sarnia. But this team still plays solid ball. Tough football program that is slowly finding its identity. Watch out for them in the playoffs.
Week 6
LOSS 42-23 to Sarnia

#7 Sault Steelers
Nice job in Oakville boys! This was a big road win for a team rebuilding with new talent. Looks like the defense is still a top tier unit with Brandon Lewis leading the front 7.
Week 6
WIN 18-14 over Oakville

#8 Oakville Longhorns
It’s hard to find words for where this season has gone for the Horns. They have a young team with great numbers, they have some real talent but this season has quickly gotten away from them.
LOSS 18-14 to the Sault

Power Ranking – 2016 Week 6

Power Rankings
Week #6

 

#1 GTA All Stars
Well done All Stars. This team performs a 100% better with Tommy on the field holding a football than off the field with a clipboard. Defense plays a lot tougher when they know the offense is moving the ball.
Week 5
WIN 75-17 over Sarnia

#2 Ottawa Invaders
The only team to beat GTA the past two seasons took care of business at home. They are clearly the second best team in the NFC right now.
Week 5
WIN 24-3 over Sudbury

#3 Steel City Patriots
The Patriots dominated Oakville this week. Playing a complete game and rebounding from a loss a week ago. They got some offense going and defense took care of business. Therefore moving up in the rankings.
Week 5
WIN 28-6 over Oakville

#4 Sarnia Imperials
This team was knocked down a few notches. They have to put this loss behind them and get back to work. No sense dwelling on the past. That means stop posting memories of 96-1 and 75-17… Get back to work boys!!!
Week 5
LOSS 75-17 to GTA

#5 Tri City Outlaws
The Outlaws dominated the Sault in the Sault. This team shows up every week to play and they don’t disappoint. Tough team to play.
Week 5
WIN 30-6 over the Sault

#6 Sudbury Spartans
They gave up big plays and their offense couldn’t get rolling. Can’t win football games if you can’t score. Still they hung with Ottawa for 4 quarters. A program on the right track but still lacking some desire.
Week 5
LOSS 24-3 to Ottawa

#7 Oakville Longhorns
This team is struggling in finding its identity. And this loss to arch rival Hamilton was the exclamation point on the season. Back to work boys!
Week 5
LOSS 28-6 to Hamilton

#8 Sault Steelers
Tough loss, a rebuild season. Championship programs go thru cycles. And the Steelers are working with new talent. Give this team this season and watch them turn around next year.
LOSS 30-6 to Tri City
