Your Drumheller Dragons traveled to the mountains to face the Canmore Eagles for the final time in the regular season. The Dragons were going into the game leading in the season series 4-1.
The last time these two teams met, Drumheller came back from a 3-1 deficit to win 7-3. Drumheller was looking to dominate again tonight.
 
The Dragons opened the scoring at 2:16 of the first when Alex Rotundo scored his 4th of the year from Scout Truman and Roc Truman. Drumheller added to their lead at 2:59 when Bradley Stonnell snapped a shot of a nice face of win by Jordan Taupert. It was Stonnell's 7th on the year. Drumheller would continue to dominate the period with play mainly in the Canmore zone. The Dragons added another at 11:39 when Aiden Yakimchuk stretched a pass over the Canmore defenders to send Markus Boguslavsky in on a breakaway. Boguslavsky made no mistake as he went top corner for his 14th of the year to make it 3-0 Dragons. That would chase Canmore goalie Logan Dyck from the net. Drumheller would add one more on their first powerplay of the game when Scout Truman scored his 8th of the season from Roc Truman and Troy Dudley. Canmore would get on the board with 52 seconds left in the period on a shot by Mark Drohan that was tipped in front by Tian Rask to make it 4-1. Drumheller out shot Canmore 16-7.
 
In the second, Canmore would come out with more of a fight. They would make it 4-2 at 8:29 when Tian Rask would score his second of the game. Drumheller would answer back quickly only 37 seconds later when Alex Rotundo would score his second of the game on a beautiful setup from Eric Martin making the score 5-2, With 3:17 left to go, Canmore would make things interesting on a goal by Zach Carlson to make it 5-3 Drumheller.
 
Canmore came out strong in the third testing Hunter Virostek. Virostek was up to the task squandering Canmore's chances. Drumheller would make it 6-3 on a nice goal by Shane Ott from Derrick Budz. Canmore would answer at 15:41 with a goal by their captain Colton Young. The Dragons would take a penalty with 1:35 left so Canmore pulled their goalie for a six on four advantance. Brayden Nicholetts cleared the puck from his own back line and it went into the empty net to make the final 7-4.
 
With thw win, Drumheller extends their win streak to six games and remain six points back of Okotoks for second in the AJHL South Division.
