Wetaskiwin Sabres (1-2) at Lacombe Rams (2-0), 4:30 p.m. — The Rams appear to be the best team in the league at this point and are only getting stronger with defending rushing champion, Brady Olsen, returning. The Sabres are still coming together. Pick: Lacombe.
Sylvan Lake Lakers (1-2) at Rocky Rebels (1-2), 4:30 p.m. — Lakers aren’t as strong as in the past, but are still talented enough to push for a playoff spot. The Rebels are improved, but are still a step behind. Pick: Sylvan Lake.
Lindsay Thurber Raiders (0-2-1) at Notre Dame Cougars (2-0), 4 p.m., Great Chief Park — The Cougars opened the season worried about their running game, but Dale MacDonald has eliminated those worries. The Raiders have an outstanding passing game, but need to find some consistency on the ground. Pick: Notre Dame.
Camrose Trojans (1-1) at Hunting Hills Lightning (3-0), 7 p.m., Great Chief Park — Could be one of the better games on the day. The Lightning are off to a great start while the Trojans showed their offensive potential in a 54-0 win over Rocky. The fact the game is in Red Deer, pick: Hunting Hills.
