The Swift Current Broncos suffered another heartbreaking defeat after a solid effort.

The Broncos dropped a 3-2 decision in a shootout against the Brandon Wheat Kings Friday night as Eric Roy and Mark Stone scored in the shootout while the Broncos failed to score.

Brad Hoban scored both goals including one on a deflection with a few dying seconds remaining in the third.

Jon Groenheyde, the game's second star was once again, stellar as he blocked 38 of 40 shots.

The game was scoreless through two until Ayrton Nikkel and Stone scored in the third.

The Broncos now head back down the TransCanada Highway as they play in Moose Jaw Saturday.
