The Drumheller Dragons were able to pick up two of a pos­si­ble four points when they hosted both Cal­gary teams at home; one hold­ing strong to the first place spot in the Viterra AJHL south, while one that is still look­ing to pick up its sec­ond win of the sea­son.

On Fri­day night the Dragons hosted the Cal­gary Canucks, who were sport­ing a 6-3-1 record. The Canucks went up late in the first pe­riod. The Dragons out­shot the Canucks 14-7 in the sec­ond pe­riod and an­swered back 13 min­utes in, when Bray­den Ni­c­ho­letts found the goal.

The Canucks opened the third pe­riod with four straight goals in the first 5:36 of the game. Joren Pate­naude scored on the power play about nine min­utes in, but it was too lit­tle too late as the Canucks won 5-2.

The Dragons were back in ac­tion on Satur­day night when they took on the Cal­gary Mus­tangs. The Dragons out­shot the Mus­tangs 37 to 29 as they cruised to a 6-2 win. Right away, the Dragons jumped out to a 5-1 lead in the first pe­riod with goals from Evan Ro­chowiak, Ni­c­ho­letts, Brett Camp­bell, Ste­fan Wood and Brady Risk be­fore the Mus- tangs found the net.

The sec­ond pe­riod was score­less. Seven min­utes into the third pe­riod, Risk scored his sec­ond of the game. The Mus­tangs scored at the 12-minute mark, but that was as close as they could get.

Camp­bell had three points with a goal and two as­sists and Dane Dow has his first win in net.

This week the Dragons are in Cam­rose on Tues­day, October 11, re­sults not avail­able at press time, and then back on home ice this Satur­day to play the Fort McMur­ray Oil Barons. On Sun­day af­ter­noon, they play a mati­nee ver­sus the Grande Prairie Storm.
