Reach for the Top posted a PDF playoff results sheet showing that all their semifinal and final games were within 60 points. They updated their results live on their Facebook page.

Ben Smith tweeted a sheet ranking this year's Ontario teams against historical top teams. He controlled for PPG, win-loss record, and strength of schedule.

Ben also noted that a team from UTS could very possibly have won Reach provincials this year, if they'd managed to qualify. Reach's regional qualifiers create a bottleneck in the Toronto area, where UTS lost in a single-elimination game. Their results playing in house-reach tournaments this year suggest that they might have been stronger than any team actually at Provincials.
