Dragons eliminate Eagles from AJHL Playoffs

According to the Alberta Junior Hockey League website, the Drumheller Dragons eliminated the Canmore Eagles from playoff contention Friday with a 5-2 victory at the Drumheller Memorial Arena.

It was a very offensive balanced attack for the Dragons, who had nine players register a single point. Ethan James of Duchess, Alberta, (a southern Alberta village located just north of Brooks) scored the game winning goal for the Dragons with 5:21 left in the second period on the power play from Troy Gedny and Alex Bechtold.

The Dragons defeated the Eagles 4-1 in the best out of seven series in the Alberta Junior Hockey League South Division semifinal and will now play the Brooks Bandits in the South Division final.

The series victory for the Dragons was rather impressive because Canmore was given home ice advantage in the series because of a scheduling conflict at the Drumheller Memorial Arena. The fact that the Eagles were given home ice advantage even though they had eight fewer points than the Dragons in the regular season, definitely puts those in charge of scheduling events at the Drumheller Memorial Arena and the Alberta Junior Hockey League itself in a negative light.
