Central Alberta High School Football League
Lacombe Rams (1-0-0) at Sylvan Lake Lakers (1-1-0), 4:30 p.m. — Lakers’ defence still not where they would like but their offence is still one of the best in the league, led by QB Chase Hoffman, RB Shon Zenert and R Tyler Ledwos and R Tyson Maton. The Rams have played only one conference game and defeated LTCHS by more than the Lakers did. Still have to take Sylvan Lake.
Wetaskiwin Sabres at Notre Dame Cougars, 7:30 p.m., Great Chief Park — Non-conference.
Camrose Trojans (0-1-0) at West Central Rebels (1-1-0), Rocky, 4:30 p.m. — The Rebels show signs of being a solid team, but need a little more consistency. On the other side the Trojans are lacking depth. Pick: Rocky.
Stettler Wildcats (2-0-0) at Ponoka Broncs (0-1-0), 4:30 p.m. — Another tough match up for the Broncs, who are still learning the ropes at the 12-man level. The Wildcats are the top ranked team in the province in Tier III for a reason. They’re rolling even without star RB Braden Nelson. Pick: Stettler.
Hunting Hills Lightning (0-0-1) at Lindsay Thurber Raiders (0-2-0), 7:30 p.m., Great Chief Park — Game could be more interesting than some believe. The Raiders showed a definite improvement from their 28-17 loss to Lacombe to their 24-21 loss to the Lakers. The team, led by Grade 10 QB Braydon Moorman, is young and will continue to improve. The Lightning have one of the better offensive crews in the league led by RB Matt Russell and RB Jin Ohn and QB Scott Pearson, but still young on defence. Pick: Hunting Hills.
