The Brandon Wheat Kings will have to wait at least one more game to be crowned WHL champions.

The Seattle Thunderbirds avoided the sweep on Wednesday with a 6-1 win in Game 4 of the WHL Final. Brandon still holds a commanding 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Devils prospect John Quenneville was held off the scoresheet one night after scoring twice in the Wheat Kings' 3-2 overtime win in Game 3. He leads the WHL playoffs with 15 goals and ranks second with 26 points in 20 games.

Game 5 is set for Friday in Seattle, where the Wheat Kings can close out their first WHL title since 1995-96.
