The Wheat Kings ended Kootenay's home winning streak at eight games, as well as Ice goaltender Todd Mathews' personal winning streak at a franchise record 11 games.

Brayden Schenn scored twice and Scott Glennie had a goal and two assists for Brandon (33-16-3), while Mark Schneider, Brodie Melnychuk and Aaron Lewadniuk also scored. Brent Raedeke and Jay Fehr each added two assists.
