Brandon Coach Likes Bounce-Back Efforts

The end of October marks about the one-fifth mark of the Western Hockey League season for the Brandon Wheat Kings.

The club sits in a tie for second-place in the East Division with a 9-5-0-1 record, one point behind the front-running Regina Pats.

Wheat Kings' coach Cory Clouston said on Monday's Coaches' Corner on CKLQ that their overall team play has improved over the first two months.

"I like our play, and just the structure of our game has come a long way," said Clouston, "The odd time, we'll get off page and get off our game plan and we look a little more disorganized but when we play our game and work hard, we're a very good hockey team."

The Wheat Kings haven't lost back-to-back games this season, with the latest example of the club's bounce-back ability coming Saturday night with a 3-2 victory over the Edmonton Oil Kings after losing an 8-4 home-ice decision to Moose Jaw on Friday.

"I think the guys have always responded well with very good efforts and, as a coach, that's what you want," said Clouston, "We just want to be more consistent, though. We want to get off that roller-coaster, be a little more consistent and a little more focused each game."

Brandon's next action is Tuesday night, when they visit the Swift Current Broncos.
