Brandon provided all the offense they'd need in the first period with goals from Jesse Gabrielle and Richard Nejezchleb for a 2-0 lead. Regina's Morgan Klimchuk scored the lone goal of the middle frame but that was all the scoring the Pats could muster.
The Wheat Kings' Jace Hawryluk, Ryley Lindgren and John Quenneville scored in the third to put the game on ice.
Brandon outshot the Pats 42-29 while going 1/7 on the powerplay and 2/3 on the penalty kill. The attendance was 4705.
Regina's Daniel Wapple made 37 saves in the loss while Brandon's Jordan Papirny made 28 saves to collect the win.
The Wheat Kings move on to face Edmonton in Round 2 while the Pats are headed home.
