Dragons Down the Saints

The Dragons took on the Spruce Grove Saints on Friday, October 26 at the Memorial Arena.  The Saints were able to get on the scoreboard at 12:24 of the 1st with a goal from Dylan Richard.  The Dragons tied the score at 10:51 with a goal from Ryan Bloom.  The Saints added a power play marker at 15:56 from Dylan Hollman, then Mitch McNamara made it 3-1 at the 17:16 mark to end the 2nd period.  The Dragons were not going down so easy, they came out strong in the 3rd.  At 11:55 Brennan Baxandall with an assist from Chris Rauckman put the Dragons within 1 of the Saints.  Mitch Gartner scored the tieing marker from Hunter Mills on the power play at 19:57.  This game was then headed to overtime.  The overtime format is 3 on 3 for 5 minutes before you head to a shoot out.  A shoot out was not needed in this game.  It was a short lived overtime, Ryan Aasman made a quick pass to Chris Rauckman who shot up the ice, stepped over the blue line and let a rocket go to beat the Saints netminder, Nathan Park.  Dragons won 4-3.

Next Dragons action is on Tuesday, October 30 against the Olds Grizzlys at 7:30pm.
