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.
