Dragons hold on to third going into Christmas break

IMG 6837

The Dragons are sitting in third place in a highly competitive Viterra South Division after a strong December.
On Wednesday, December 21 the Dragons were in Canmore to take on the Eagles. Canmore came out with more bounce in their step and by the end of the first period were up 3-0. Wil Christian scored less than a minute and a half into the second period, but that was all the Dragons could muster on this night. Canmore scored again in the second and capped it off in the third to win 5-1.
While it is not the best way to head into Christmas break, the Dragons have been playing great hockey through the last couple of months. Leading into Wednesday night’s game the Dragons had handily won three in a row and between November 12 and December 2 went on an eight-game winning streak.
After 36 games, the Dragons are 19-13 with two more losses coming in overtime and two in shoot-outs. They are in third place in the South, just three points behind the Okotoks Oilers and the Brook Bandits who are perennially strong. League-wide they have the sixth-best record.
The Dragons are back in action on Tuesday, January 3 at home to take on the Brooks Bandits.
