The Thompson Sports News


The Brandon Wheat Kings opened up the 2017/2018 WHL season over the weekend with a pair of games against the Regina Pats.

 

Friday evenings’ game, which was played at Westman Place in Brandon, saw the Wheaties stomp the Pats 8-1. Third year player Ty Lewis lead the way for Brandon with two goals and three assists. Regina alternate captain Matt Bradley had the loan goal for the Pats.

 

Saturday saw the two teams face off for the second time, this time at the Brandt Centre in Regina. The Pats came out victories, edging the Wheaties 4-3. George King, who spent most of the 2016/2017 season with the OCN Blizzard, opened up the scoring half way through the first with his first in the WHL for the Pats. Regina took a 2-0 lead into the second period, before Stelio Mattheos, a third round pick by Carolina in the most recent NHL draft, answered back with two of his own for the Wheat Kings. Regina would add two more goals, one each in the second and third, to seal the victory.

 

The Wheat Kings will welcome both Red Deer and Swift Current on Friday and Saturday.
