BRANDON, MB - The Regina Pats finished off the 2018-19 season with a 5-4 shootout loss in Brandon to the Wheat Kings on Saturday night.

In the first, the Wheat Kings scored 19 seconds in and then added another before the six-minute mark to lead 2-0. The Pats got one back from Carter Massier, his fifth of the year, and it was a 2-1 game after 20 minutes of play.

In the second, Brandon went back up by two on a goal from Connor Gutenberg and led 3-1. The Pats got it to within a goal late in the period when Ty Kolle finished off a pretty pass from Ryker Evans for his 15th and it was 3-2 after forty minutes.

In the third, Ty Kolle scored his second of the night and 16th of the campaign to tie it 3-3. The Wheat Kings got a shorthanded goal to take the lead back, but with 3:30 left in regulation, Austin Pratt put home his 25th to tie the game and force overtime.

The extra frame solved nothing, and the Wheat Kings would end up taking the extra point in a five round shootout, 5-4 the final score.

The Pats were outshot 42-38. The powerplay was 1/4 and the penalty kill went 4/4. Ty Kolle led the offence with two goals and an assist, while Max Paddock made 38 saves.

Quick Hits- Brett Clayton recorded an assist in his final game of his WHL career.
- Nikita Sedov put up nine assists against the Wheat Kings this season.
- The Pats finish the season with a 4-2-0-2 record against the Wheat Kings.

Thanks for an entertaining season, a rebuilding year which was expected. Majority of the games were entertaining. Looking forward to next year when the young players are bigger, stronger and faster. 3 Saskatchewan teams in the playoffs probably cheer for MJ and PA.

Long tough season and there were far too many blowouts and shutouts. Started the season bad even with lots of returning talent that didn't play and it killed the Pats. I trust management realizes the free pass is over and rose is off the bloom. Time to produce a consistent winner like other places in the CHL do. There were a few somewhat bright spots but nothing close to what is needed. They had better do something because that was not good enough. There is clearly some dead weight on this roster. If better isn't provided to the heavy paying fans they may vote with their feet. That would be an unfortunate return to the likes of the previous ownership. After 30 years of bad ownership people wants championships and not excuses. Too many of the latter have been provided. If Everett can make the playoffs 16 years in a row we should be able to as well unless there is some reason why. Sustained success?

Perhaps another 3 years and they MIGHT be back in the thick of things again.
