The Brandon Wheat Kings got off to a quick start on home ice against the Regina Pats Friday night and never looked back.
Goals by Baron Thompson and Nolan Patrick in the first four minutes of the opening period sent them on their way to a 5-3 win.
Regina trailed the game 4-1 after two periods, but Austin Wagner’s 26th of the year followed by Adam Brooks’ 32nd of the year pulled them to within one before the Wheat Kings sealed it with an empty-netter.
Brooks had three points on the night as he reached the 300 career point level.
The Pats will play their 4th game in 5 nights Saturday at Mosaic Place as they skate with the Moose Jaw Warriors in a 7 o’clock puck drop on 620 CKRM
