Tough road trip for Dragons

Dragons name only 1

The Drumheller Dragons had a tough week on the road, falling in two games straight.
On Friday, November 10 the Dragons were in Sherwood Park to take on the North-leading Crusaders.
Sherwood Park scored first, but Tate Yule tied it up for the Dragons less than two minutes later. The Crusaders didn’t stop the onslaught and scored three more to end the first period up 4-1. The two team matches goals in the second period with Vann Yuhas and Jacob Goudreau scoring. Connor Poffenroth scored for the Dragons in the third period, but the Crusaders topped it off with an empty netter with 1:20 left to win 7-4.
The Dragons hoped to regroup the next evening in Olds when they took on the Grizzlys, on Saturday, November 11. The Grizzlys scored first but Poffenroth and Nolan Viesner each found the net to lead 2-1 after one. Olds scored two unanswered goals in the second to end the period up 3-2 and added one more in the third period to take firm control. Poffenroth scored his second of the game and ninth of the season with 2:18 left in the game, but it was too little too late and the Grizzlys went on to a 4-3 win.
This Tuesday, November 14 the Dragons were back on home ice to take on the Camrose Kodiaks. On Thursday they return the favour and head to Camrose. On Friday, November 17, they host the Olds Grizzlys.
