On Friday night, August 30 the Dragons were back home. And they went on the offense. Camrose scored first, but Luke Fennig scored twice in the first four minutes of the second period to go up 2-1. The Kodiaks tied it but then Myles Hillman put the Dragons back up on top early in the third. Max Kathol made it 4-2 before Camrose found the net again. A goal by Eric Martin scored on an empty net, lead to a 5-3 win.
