Sylvan Lake Lakers (2-3) at Camrose Trojans (1-3), 4 p.m. — The Trojans have run into a string of injuries which will hurt, but they still have enough offence to stay with most teams in the league. The Lakers need to pick up their play on defence if they hope to stay in the running for an A-side playoff berth. The fact this game is in Camrose, pick: Camrose.

Lindsay Thurber Raiders (1-3-1) at Wetaskiwin Sabres (1-3), 7 p.m. — The Raiders are consistently improving, but the Sabres are usually a solid team at home. Pick: Wetaskiwin.

Stettler Wildcats (0-3-1) at Lacombe Rams (4-0), 4 p.m. — The Rams are one of the elite teams while the Wildcats are struggling to stay out of the basement. Pick: Lacombe.

Notre Dame Cougars (4-0) at Hunting Hills Lightning (5-0), 7:30 p.m., Great Chief Park — The game of the day. Both teams have outstanding running games with Dale MacDonald of Notre Dame and Stas McPhail of Hunting Hills. The Cougars appear to have just a slight edge on offence, so pick: Notre Dame.
