In terms of competitive balance, this has not been a good year for the Waterloo County senior boys football league.
Not even close.
Looking back on both A and B division results, only seven of 35 games have been decided by 10 points or less. That's one in five, folks.
By comparison, 13 games have been decided by 30 points or more.
The numbers aren't good, especially when one considers there's not a coach in either division that is known for running up the score.
The competitive balance just isn't there.
There have been 22 games played so far in the 12-team A division with the winning teams combining to ouscore the losers by a 835-214 margin. That makes the average score 36.3 to 9.7.
It's no better in the nine-team B division as winners have outscored losers 280-60, which makes the average score 21.5 to 4.6 after 13 games.
Some will argue the disparity has been created by teams like Jacob Hespeler, Resurrection and Eastwood that have won games by huge margins and they'd be partially correct.
Still, these blowouts are no fun for anyone and WCSSAA coaches should consider a return to the three-division system next year to make these games more interesting.
