The CWOSSA senior football playoffs are no longer a mystery.
The six-team tournament will feature two entries from WCSSAA(champion and finalist) and single entries from District 1 (Bruce Peninsula), District 5 (Brantford), District 9 (Norfolk) and District 10 (Guelph).
The two WCSSAA entries will advance directly to the semifinal rounds while the remaining four will begin playoffs on the week of Nov. 14 for the opportunity to face them. District 10 will host District 1 and District 5 will host District 9.
Semifinals will be played on Nov. 18 at Jacob Hespeler with the WCSSAA champion facing the District 1/District 10 winner at 5:30 p.m. and the WCSSAA runnerup facing the District 5/District 9 winner at 7:30 p.m.
The championship game will be played at The Jake, a 2 p.m. kickoff on Saturday, Nov. 22. (Click on image to enlarge).
Brantford's Assumption Lions are the four-time defending champions and look to be the early favourites to win it again this year.
The squad boasts a healthy nucleus of players that shredded the Jacob Hespeler Hawks 52-15 in last year's final, including quarterback Liam Putt and receiver Andre Toic.
Jacob Hespeler head coach Greg White called Putt a "magician" after last year's final and he's up to his old tricks in 2014, leading the Lions to a 4-0 record in their league and a No. 14 national ranking by canadafootballchat.com.
Brantford Collegiate is also 4-0 in the District 5 standings and the teams will square off on Thursday in what will very likely be a preview of the championship final.
Jacob Hespeler is ranked No. 25 in this week's list, St. Benedict is No. 35 and Sir John A. Macdonald is No. 50.
