Dragons find new chemistry, rack up three wins

dragonsweek50.jpgThe Drumheller Dragons have turned their game around, racking up three wins this week, showing the offensive prowess crowds witnessed at the beginning of the season.
In a flurry of fresh players entering the Dragon’s den, the team has been revitalized and at the top of their game.
“There have been a lot of new faces in here the last few weeks,” coach Rob Hegberg said. “It has taken time to get our chemistry back.”
After losing 4-1 to the Brooks Bandits Tuesday, December 2, the Dragons quickly bounced back to beat the Calgary Royals at home and in Calgary.
The Royals, holding last place in the south, were outmatched and outplayed Thursday and Saturday, to a score of 7-1 and 9-3 respectively.


Dragons hungry to break losing streak

dragons48.jpgThe Drumheller Dragons seem to be stuck in a rut this regular season, losing their last three games and remaining fourth in their division among a close grouping of five teams. “Every team goes through struggles, gets in ruts, it’s hard to get out of,” explained coach Jason Hegberg. “It’s tough for a guy to find different ways to get things accomplished,” clearly shown in Monday’s game against the Camrose Kodiaks who shut out the Dragons 4-0. The team found themselves trailing by 2 entering the second period. The Dragons were ignited after captain Trent Colberg laid out Kodiak Jeremy Beirnes, heavily leading Camrose on shots on net in the second and third.
