An ail-star at the I provincial tournament Wolsey i is a real good outside shooter and strong on Ibe boards. He is 6'2'' and figures to give Karren lots of talent at the guard posi- tion. Complementing Williams at forward will be Alex Dudas, a graduate of Catholic Central High School in Lethbridge. "He's a real speedster." said Karrcn. "He handles the ball real well and is a good inside and ouiside shooter." Dudas is 6'1" but appears to be taller and is an exceptional jumper. Lining up at the other guard for Karren's Kodiaks Friday will bo Kendon Eakett, who like Dudas is an excellent ball han- dler and fine shooter. He toiled with the Cardston High School last year and played for the Magrath seniors on a number of occasions. Eakett is an even six feet in height.

Stanley, who faces the formi- dable task to trying to find ways to stop the Saskatchewan offence, says the Riders are "the most dynamic team, offen- sively. that we play." "Tire first thing you have lo do is respect George Reed. especially (ho he said "but Lancaster (quarterback Ron Lancaster) is the man and we just have to hope he doesn't come up with a hot hand." "We'd like to dump Ron early and establish something, but it isn't going to be easy." MUST BE READY Head coach Jim Spavital, who takes a team consisting mainly of playoff "rookies" into the contest, says the club "will just have to be ready lo play if we intend to stay in the game." Spavital says the two-week layoff may have hurt the club in its timing, but Stanley said flatly: "Don't worry about the layoff, we'll be ready lor them." The Bombers will be healthy for the contest, with the only injuries to Larry Kerychuk, out for the season with a shoulder problem, and halfback Bobby Kraemer who has been limping most of the year. Spavital says he's hoping for a little wanner weather, but added "we've worked on our running game to prepare for the weather."
