Dragons slide continues vs Okotoks Oilers
The Drumheller Dragons are now on a five game slide as they approach the end of their schedule after a tough home and away series versus the Okotoks Oilers.
The Dragons hosted the Oilers on Saturday night at Drumheller Memorial Arena in front of 567 fans.
The Oilers took an early lead six minutes into the first period on the powerplay, but Levi Wunder tied up the game less than a minute later. The Oilers went up 2-1 3:40 into the second period and then Clint Filbrandt tied it up.
After that, the Oilers took off and put together three more goals in the second period. They added a powerplay goal with about five minutes left in the third period, to go up 6-2 for good.
The Dragons had a chance to even the score on Monday afternoon when they headed to Okotoks for the second game of the series.
The Oilers, who are currently third in the Viterra South, outshot the Dragons 45-32. Mike Falanga scored at 8:16 in the first period and then Joren Patenaude scored in the third period, but the rest was all Okotoks as they went on to win 8-2. Jacob Schofield looks for a chance in the third period versus the Okotoks Oilers last Saturday night at the Drumheller Memorial Arena. The Dragons lost both games in the home and away series. With only six games left in the Dragons’ schedule, they are sitting in fifth place in the Viterra South. They have fallen seven points behind the Canmore Eagles and four points ahead of the Calgary Canucks.
This Friday, the Dragons are hosting the Olds Grizzlys and then on Sunday afternoon, they welcome the Grande Prairie Storm to the Drumheller Memorial Arena.
