Wetaskiwin Sabres (2-3) at Stettler Wildcats (0-4-1), 4 p.m. — The Sabres, led by RB Justin Jorstad, have been on a roll of late while the ‘Cats are struggling to find any consistency. Pick: Wetaskiwin.

Hunting Hills Lightning (5-1) at Rocky Mountain House (1-4), 4 p.m. — The Lightning are coming off a disappointing loss to Notre Dame, but should be back on track while the Rebels will have problems stopping RB Stas McPhail. Pick: Hunting Hills.

Camrose Trojans (1-4) at Lindsay Thurber Raiders (1-4-1), 4 p.m., Great Chief Park — Tough one to pick. Both teams have some injuries and some talent, especially on offence. Just a coin flip. Pick: Camrose.

Lacombe Rams (5-0) at Notre Dame Cougars (5-0), 7 p.m., Great Chief Park — Game of the year so far. First place on the line. The Rams appear to have more depth on offence with Brady Olsen and Skylar Sargeant in the backfield and Cole Stewart at quarterback. The Cougars need another outstanding game from RB Dale MacDonald and QB Kyle Devine, but especially from their defence. But until they prove otherwise, pick: Lacombe.

2009 record: 17 right, seven wrong .708

2008 record: 27 right, nine wrong .750

39-year record: 813 right, 246 wrong .768
