In 1961 Moncton High ran a competitive intramural league. In 1962 teams played an exhibition schedule. 
1963 was the first year that a champion was recognized.
From 1963 until 1973 there was no championship game. The team finishing first at the end of the regular season was recognized as the champion. In 1967 and 1970 two teams tied for first so a game was played to decide the champion. 
In the table above the team finishing second in the regular season during that period is shown as the runner-up. 
Many thanks to Rod MacKenzie of Moncton for his research into the early years of high school football.
