Wheat Kings Busted in Swift Current

  One goal was not enough for the Brandon Wheat Kings for the second straight night as they dropped a 4-1 decision to the Swift Current Broncos on Saturday night.

  Jayce Hawryluk scored Brandon’s only goal, and it came on the power-play in the opening minute of the third period with the Wheat Kings already trailing 3-0.

  Landon Bow made 35 saves in the Swift Current net including 18 in the third period while Jon Martin had his league-leading 19th goal and two assists for the Broncos.

  Logan Thompson made 25 saves in making his fourth start in five games for Brandon.

  Despite their back-to-back losses, Brandon remains just two points out of first-place in the Eastern Conference.

  The Wheat Kings return to action Wednesday when they open a five-game home stand by hosting the Red Deer Rebels (4:00 p.m., Westman Communications Group Place).

Chaff...the military-themed jersey Tanner Kaspick (and the rest of the Wheat Kings) will wear on Remembrance Day was auctioned off during CKLQ’s broadcast Saturday, with winning bid being $700.  Proceeds from the jersey auction go to the Brandon and District United Way...Brandon’s scratches Saturday were F Tim McGauley (upper body), F John Quenneville (upper body), F Braylon Shmyr (illness), F Tak Anholt (illness, conditioning) and F Stelio Mattheos (U17)...Wheat Kings’ prospects Ian Mitchell and Jarrod Gourley helped Canada-White win gold Saturday at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.  Mitchell had two assists and Gourley was pointless in their 6-2 victory over Russia in the gold medal game.
