All Taber Golden Suns teams were on the ice this past weekend as the South Central Alberta Hockey League rolls along.

U15

The U15 Oil Kings also had a two-game road trip over the past weekend. First up was a matchup against the Airdrie Lightning on Saturday morning. Airdrie would score the only two goals in the first and then add two more in the second before Tait Vermeersch scored shorthanded for Taber with Liam Okell drawing the assist. Airdrie would still capitalize on the power play and they took a 5-1 lead into the third period. The Lightning once again scored two goals to open the period and the Suns saw a large deficit to overcome. Heal Arlo would kick start the Taber offence with under 10 to play as Devin Groenenboom and Ryler Kiss found the scoresheet with an assist each. Taber would add one more goal off of Okell’s stick, but that would be as close as Taber got as the game ended 7-3. Lincoln Weiss and Vermeersch had the assists for the final Taber goal. Avery Remfert got the start for Taber and the netminder made 37 saves on 44 shots.

The weekend wrapped up with a game against the Bow Valley Timberwolves. Bow Valley would open the scoring, but Taber would answer back quickly on the power play as Nixen Miller found the back of the net with the assist going to Hunter Simpson. The Timberwolves would add two more and take a 3-1 lead into the middle frame. Taber would start out strong in the second as Mason Noble and Groenenboom had power play markers with Miller and Truett Moeller getting assists. Bow Valley would score another and the home team had a 4-3 lead into the third. In the third, Bow Valley would quick strike for a pair of two goals and that would be all they needed as they took the game 6-3. Griffin Stenger made 36 saveson 42 shots in net.

The U15 Suns now prepare for a two-game weekend at home as the Red Deer Steel Kings come to town on Saturday for a 5:30 p.m. puck drop and then Airdrie on Sunday for a 1 p.m. game.
