dictionary defines rival as a per sons competitor for some Lethbridge Sugar Kings and Red Deer it can safely be are indeed They are not competing for one anothers The exact opposite could best describe the What they are competing for is the Alberta Junior Hockey League and buttling it out for top honors is nothing new between these two Three hockey seasons or to be more the spring of the Kings and Rustlers fought tooth and nail through a sevengame series with the Kings eventually winning the Alberta title and a trip into the western Memorial Cup It was far and away the most successful season the Lethbridge Sugar Kings have enjoyed in their history in the sixteam Alberta They stopped Victoria Cougars in six games and were finally beaten by Regina Pats in six as a matter of won the west and lost to Montreal Junior Canadiens in the Canadian Last year it was the Rustlers Kings had nothing to do with the good fortunes of the Rustlers as they lost out to Ponoka Stampeders in the semi The is again for the Kings and Rustlers and only the theatres will be The Rustlers will still play their home games in the Red Deer Arena but the Kings will display a brand new building to the the Taber Civic A great deal of emphasis is put on home ice ad The even though the Arena has burned to the will find Taber very much like The good people of Taber and the strong Leth bridge supporters proved that last weekend when the Kings ousted Edmonton Maple finishing the series before a packed house in There was very little to choose between the clubs over the Had the Kings not lost six points in the committee rooms they would have hard pressed the Rustlers for top As it turned they finished a solid second and have another crack at the league One factor that makes junior hockey exciting is because anything can happen and usually Odds on junior hockey games are harder to get than infor mation was on Prime Minister Trudeaus The healthiest team will win the Alberta Junior Hockey League and from this corner the Kings look to be in as good a shape as they have been all Last weekend in Taber they played better than 90 minutes of hockey with veiy little and like one fan pointed out they were going just as fast at the end as at the Kings didnt get roughed up against the Leafs while the Rustlers and Calgary Cougars took turns running at each The Rustlers may be softened up for the Only time will The two clubs meet in Red Deer Saturday and and if the Kings can get a split they will be sitting pretty heading home to the friendly confines of the Taber Civic Centre Wed nesday and I will have to go with the Sugar but it will take them all seven games and it will be a tough My reasons may seem selfish but British Colum bia is beautiful at this time of year and thats where the Kings would head if they won it all in informed sources say that the winner of the Alberta Junior League can go all the Its kind of exciting when you think of it isnt it If you didnt see Joe Frazler knock
