Advocate Selections


Hunting Hills Lightning (1-0) at Stettler Wildcats (0-1), 4:30 p.m. — Both teams have outstanding running backs in Stas McPhail with the Lightning and Josh Meyer with the ‘Cats. The fact this game is in Stettler may be the difference. Pick: Stettler.

Rocky Rebels (1-0) at Notre Dame Cougars (0-0), 4:30 p.m., Great Chief Park — The Rebels are definitely improved as their win over Stettler showed. However, the Cougars are always one of the better teams in the league and should be once again. Pick: Notre Dame.


Wetaskiwin Sabres (1-0) at Sylvan Lake Lakers (0-1), 4:30 p.m. — A tough one to pick considering Wetaskiwin got off to a good start while the Lakers showed no offence against Lacombe. Then again the Lakers will be better at home. Pick: Sylvan Lake.

Lacombe Rams (1-0) at Lindsay Thurber Raiders (0-1), 7:30 p.m., Great Chief Park — The Rams turned in an impressive performance in their 30-0 win over Sylvan Lake. The Raiders didn’t show a lot in a loss to Hunting Hills and also have run into a string of injuries. Pick: Lacombe.

2009 record: one right, three wrong .250

39-year record: 797 right, 242 wrong .767
