This time Whitecourt had the jump outshooting the Dragons 13-5 in the first period. There was no scoring until the second when Whitecourt connected on the powerplay. Whitecourt scored again to go up 2-0 just 31 seconds into the third. They added an empty netter to win 3-0.
On Saturday, September 30, the Dragons were back on the ice to play against the Spruce Grove Saints. After a scoreless first period, Vann Yuhas put the Dragons up, assisted by Adam Raesler and Easton Adrian, just 59 seconds into the second period. Just 34 seconds later Raesler scored his sixth of the season assisted by Adrian and Coy Pighin.
In the third period, Spencer Claerhout scored his first of the season, assisted by Kai Matthews, to go up 3-0. The Saints added one with 13 seconds left to stave off a shutout.
