Despite outshooting the Broncos 17-9 in the first, the Pats found themselves down 1-0 at the break.
In the second, a tough bounce off a skate ended up on the tape of Matteo Gennaro in the slot who spun and buried into the top corner and it was 2-0 Broncos after 40 minutes.
In the third, the Broncos powerplay extended the lead to 3-0 before Cale Fleury broke through for the Pats with his ninth of the season and it was 3-1.
Swift Current restored their three goal lead with another powerplay goal to make it 4-1 and that was the final score.
