Practice prowess missing

KIRK PENTON

Doug Berry said Alexis Serna didn't have his best week of practice, and the Bombers head coach couldn't be happier about it.

In defending his kicker, who is a woeful 60% on field goals in the past month, Berry has pointed out Serna rarely misses in practice, but then the rookie goes and, more often than not, whiffs when it matters most.

Berry is hoping the opposite will happen tonight against the Stamps after Serna had a so-so week in practice.

"That's the way it usually is," Berry said. "When he's been good during the game he's had a horrible day in practice. So I feel real good this week."

PICKING IT UP

Defensive backs Anthony Malbrough and Wes Lysack were swapped for each other Oct. 2, 2005.

It took nearly three years and a combined 76 games, but one of them finally got an interception for their new team. Now, they're picking off passes like apples off a tree.

Lysack, a Winnipeg native playing for the Stamps, snapped the interception drought Aug. 22 against B.C. Malbrough followed that up with his first pick as a Bomber nine days later.

Lysack has since picked off three more passes, and Malbrough has added a second.

EXTRA POINTS

Winnipeg is the only team Calgary hasn't beaten this season. The Bombers won 32-28 July 24 at Canad Inns Stadium ... Winnipeg's leading receiver, Derick Armstrong (knee), won't play today.
