Your Drumheller Dragons continued on their three game road trip Sunday in Lloydminster where they faced off against the Bobcats.

Drumheller was coming off a hard fought victory in Bonnyville the night before where they won 3-2.  The Bobcats were also coming off a win on Saturday night where they blasted the Calgary Canucks 7-1.  One team was going to continue their winning streak but which was to be determined.

The first ten minutes of the game, both teams struggled to get momentum.  It did feel like a Sunday afternoon game.  The Dragons opened up the scoring with 6:06 left in the period when Brady Risk scored his fourteenth of the year from Shane Ott and Brett Edwards to give Drumheller the early 1-0 lead.  One minute later, the Bobcats were on the power play and capitalized when Jordan Borysiuk scored to tie the game 1-1.  Before the first period would wrap up, Brett Edwards would give the Dragons the lead with his fourteenth of the season from Jordan Taupert and Alex Rotundo.  Drumheller lead 2-1 after one period.

The second was a quiet start by both teams as they each struggled for control of the puck and the game.  The Dragons took control with work on the special teams.  Derrick Budz took the puck away from a Bobcat defender to give him a breakaway.  He scored short-handed with his tenth of the season unassisted to give the Dragons a two goal lead.  Later in the period, Brady Risk would score his second of the game, on the man advantage, from Shane Ott and Jordan Taupert to make it 4-1 Dragons.  

The Bobcats would try to come back in the third with some pressure in the Dragons zone.  Lloydminster would get one back with just over ten minutes left in the game when Mason Waite would score from the point to make it 4-2 Drumheller.  The Dragons would seal the deal on a shot by Aiden Yakimchuk where he scored his third of the year from Jordan Taupert and Alex Rotundo.  With his third assist of the game, Jordan Taupert would break the team record for assists in a career with 96.  Daniel Allin would get his third win of the weekend.  With the win, the Dragons maintain their lead over four teams tied for third place in the south division.
