Golden Suns open their season this weekend when they entertain Calgary Canucks Saturday night at eight and Drumheller Falcons Sunday afternoon at two. It is year one for the Suns and they join the Pass Red Devils, Canucks, Falcons, Red Deer Rustlers and Ed- monton Spruce Grove to form the six team AJHL. The league was to have been a seven team affair with the Lethbridge Longhorns. However, the Longhorns have taken a leave of absence for this year at least. A possible rivalry between the Longhorns and Golden Suns now would look to be a Golden Sun Rustler one. "From what I have ways Golden Sun coach Gary Hull, "the league will be very well balanced." Hull has seen all but Spruce Grove and likes what he sees. Rustlers and Suns played twice and settled nothing. Both games ended in ties, 6-6 the first time and a five all deadlock the second. Golden Suns defeated the Canucks 4-3 in their only meeting. "Actually I think it was 5-4 for us laugh- ed Hull. He indicated a couple of goals were called back. "The Rustlers, Falcons and Canucks all look added Hull, "and you never know what Scotty's going to do in the Pass (Scotty in this case being Scotty Munro of the Calgary As it stands now with game one four days away Hull's main concern is the young players on his club. A look through the roster shows just five players with any Tier II experience. The Suns are loaded with talent, but it is young and must be developed. "I still have a lot of work to Hull admits. "Cars is a young club and trying to keep 'them going over a 60 game schedule will be my biggest challenge." Hull went on to say that regardless of what the fellows think the jump from Junior B and Midget is no cakewalk. An outstanding player in Midget or Junior B can be awfully mediocre when he gets into Tier II com- petition. Hull feels that for a club his club in particular to make the playoffs they will need to win more than half their games. "We have thought about that a great said Hull, "and to be honest we feel we will have to have 30 or more wins in the win column-to make the playoffs." He is optimistic about the initial year of the Suns. He will tell you that a lot of hard work has gone into the club and he is looking forward to seeing how it all comes out. Hull has tried to spread his experienced players out evenly to help balance the club. In goal the inside track would appear to belong to 17 year old Craig Archibald of Calgary who played with Spokane in two exhibition games against Taber before deciding to head back to Alberta. Still in camp battling for the other netminding job on the club are Craig Luciak who played AA Midget last year in Edmonton and Bob Iwabuchi. If Hull has a problem on defence, it may be in. numbers. Tuesday he had five dressed, two on the shelf and two more expected for their first workout. At 18 Laurie Reno is the oldest blueliner. Reno played with the Longhorns last year as did Dave Hougen, a 17 year old from Foremost, and Darcy O'Sullivan, also 17. A pair of 16-year-olds, Dale Setoguchi and Mike Panteluk have caught Hull's eye. Setoguchi played with Taber Palace Pats last season while Panteluk is fresh out of AA Midget in Edmonton last year. On the shell are veteran Tim O'Donnell, who in two years in the AJHL has played with the Pass and Lethbridge Sugar Kings, and Bill Shubinski. Three centres will anchor what could be the strong point of the Suns, centre ice. Randy Joevenazzo, a leading scorer in the league last year with the Longhorns, joins Darcy Virostek, a 17 year old up from the Palace Pats and Bob Wallis, 17, a product of Junior B in Edmonton. Flanking the centres at left wing will be Ted Weist, Dean Solheim, Greg Coper and Bruce Green. Weist, 17, was with the Pats while Solheim played Midget in Vernon, B.C. last season and according to Hull is a real comer. "He'll be a said Hull, "just you watch and see." Coper and Green are 16 year olds. Coper hails from Edmonton while Green is from Vernon. On fight wing Don Penner is back after a fling in Junior B ranks with the Pats. He started last year with the Longhorns but left camp early in the season. Also at right wing are Bob Miller, a Tier II veteran at 18. He played in Winnipeg last year; Tom Schiebner an 18 year old Juvenile from Edmonton, Rocky Saganiuk of Edmonton at 16 just out of Midget. So there you have it. The 1974-75 freshly minted Taber Golden Suns. Club president Pat Shimbashi said some time back that the Suns would make people sit up and take notice. Well, they have in more ways than just one. During the course of the summer both Bobby and Dennis Hull paid the Golden Sun hockey schools a visit. The Suns have set up an educational program where a young fellow can get credits for hockey. Actually it goes deeper than just hockey. It is a program where physical fitness, leadership and work within the Taber Minor Hockey Association is involved. All this and they haven't even dropped the first puck. The Herald Sports Goring hurt LOS ANGELES (AP) Butch Goring, Los Angeles Kings' leading scorer last sea- son, suffered 'a shoulder separation in practice Tues- day and will be sidelined for the opening of the National Hockey League season.

Golden Suns are preparing to open Alberta Junior Hockey League season this weekend. Broncos settle for draw, let 4-2 lead slip away SASKATOON (Special) "Well, we're still unbeaten." laughed Earl Ingarfield of the Lethbridge Broncos a few minutes after their 4-4 Western Canada Hockey League exhibition tie with Saskatoon Blades. "We stood a good chance of winning it. lei me tell you." continued the coach "a couple of breaks and it's all ours." After trailing 2-0 early in the second period the Broncos came back and scored four unanswered markers and led 4-2 with six minutes left in the game. However, a power play goal narrowed the count to 4-3 setting the stage for Danny Arndt's second goal of the night which earned Saskatoon the draw. Bryan Troltier, Doug Tetarenko. Ron Delorme and Stan Jensen accounted for the Broncos" goals while rookies Win Winofsky and Bruce Hamilton scored the other Blade goals. Ingarfield used two goalies. Bill Oleschuk and Rocky Bouten as the Bron- cos were outshot 34-28 before a sparse gathering of 485 fans. "All in all it wasn't too bad." said ingar- field. When you consider the Broncos left Tuesday morning, from Lethbridge. at and arrived at it was'a long day. Ingarfield also indicated a makeshift line-up, so he can get a good look at all the players left with the club, didn't help all that much. Broncos chances, and there appeared Jo be a few. were used up by Don Easteott and Delorme. EaslroU just missed on a clear breakaway from centre that would have ran the count to 5-2 while Delorme was robbed twice from close in. Broncos got the nod on eight of 14 minor penalties while both clubs had two majors apiece. "Johnson (Don) handled himself quite well in his fight." Ingarfield said, "so did Brian Souter for that matter." Ingarfieid said he would make some' changes for tonight's game in Regina and then possibly shave more players from the roster. 9 Sunday, in Lethbridge. from p.m. the Broncos.
