The Dragon’s los­ing streak now ex­tends to six games over the week­end fall­ing to the Brooks Ban­dits and then the Sher­wood Park Cru­saders.

The Dragons were in Brooks on Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 3, to take on the Ban­dits. They only mus­tered one goal from Brady Risk, 5:20 into the sec- ond pe­riod stole it 7-1.

On Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 5, the Dragons headed north to take on the Cru­saders in the afternoon. This time the Dragon had a jump out of as the Ban­dits the gate and went up 1-0 in just 29 sec­onds, with a goal from Cody Young. Tyler Krek­lewich scored on the pow­er­play at the 4:10 mark, how­ever the Dragons were trail­ing 4-2 by the end of the first pe­riod.

Cody Young scored his se­cond of the game late in the se­cond pe­riod to make it 4-3, but the Cru­saders scored two more in the third pe­riod.

Jor­dan Tau­pert scored unas­sisted with 3:35 re­main­ing in the game, but 6-4 was as close as the Dragons could get. Dane Dow stopped 43 shots in the loss.

The Dragons hoped to snap this streak on Tues­day night as they headed to Olds to take on the Griz­zlys, re­sults not avail­able at presstime. This Fri­day they are back home to play the Ban­dits.
