    Predictable that seeding committee ranked Pickering as #2 based on past performance.

    #2 vs. #3 in semi-finals barring upsets.

    This is a pretty good draw for the GTA teams.

    If everything goes to plan (according to the seedings), then:

    #9 Notre Dame (Ajax) will have a change to get into the quarter-finals by beating #8 Catholic Central.

    #5 West Hill can make it into the semi-finals be defeating #4 Beal.

    Thus this will give us 4 GTA teams in the semi-finals, therefore this will give the GTA a clean sweep of the medals.

    Those are two intriguing matchups.

    I don't know a lot about Catholic Central except that their coach is one of the best around. Notre Dame can go off when Penola gets hot!

    Beal is an impressive team with some great players and also has great coaching. West Hill has their big three.

    That is what I thought but i wanted to make sure.

    I think Notre Dame Welland is ranked a little low but im basing it on the fact that Notre Dame Ajax was ranked 9.

    Notre Dame Welland is a solid squad.

    Watch out for St. Thomas More @#12. They had a lot of injuries this year... but they are all healthy and are peaking at the right time.

    noter dame being 9 is way too high and st. more is way too low, they should be flopped but then the windsor team would have to play more and they dont want none of that

    St. Thomas More VS D'Youville is going to be a great 2nd round game with a high potential for an upset.

    Glad to see that the top seven teams were based on performance this season and not simply reputation or regional balancing.

    I was also glad to see ND Ajax ahead of ND Welland. Most year's the Niagara version is the better of the two but I've seen both teams play a number of times this year and Ajax is definitely stronger.

    Glebe's ranking might be due to the fact that they performed relatively well against St. Matthew but it might also be a mirage. Their likely second game against West Hill will be the test. They don't need to win to justify it but they need to at least be competitive. From what I understand, they are full of fifth year players and won't be intimidated.

    OTOH, Catholic Central's seeding is one of the worst cases of home cooking I've seen in a long time.

    Not many upsets but here are my predictions:

    ---FIRST ROUND---
    Eastern over More
    D'Youville over Centennial
    MT over Milliken
    CCH (barely) over St. Mike's
    ND Ajax over SJAM
    Campion over ND Wellend
    Beal over St. Anne's
    West Hill over Nantyr
    Pickering over Glebe

    ---SECOND ROUND---
    Centennial over Milliken
    St. Ane's over Natyr

    ---THIRD ROUND---
    Eastern over Centennial
    ND Ajax over CCH
    Beal over ND Welland
    West Hill over Glebe
    D'Youville over More
    MT over St. Mike's
    Campion over SJAM
    Pickering over St. Anne's

    ---QUARTER FINALS---
    Eastern over ND Ajax
    West Hill over Beal
    MT over D'Youville
    Campion over Pickering (You heard it here first...and if I'm wrong, I'm sure I'll never hear the end of it. I think the distractions will come home to roost this round.)


    ---SEMI FINALS---
    Eastern over West Hill
    MT over Campion

    West Hill wins bronze over CAmpion
    Eastern wins gold over MT

    I agree almost 100%. The one change definitely is Pickering over Campion. The other I might change is MT/Pickering and the winner vs Eastern for the gold. Both games could go either way..
