Team Pacific carried the momentum over from their game against Team Russia.  Ryan Harrison scored just three (3) minutes into the game and 30 seconds later Kevin Sundher gave Team Pacific a 2-0 lead.  Team Pacific continued to battle hard in the first period and team captain Mark Pysyk scored a late period goal to give Team Pacific the 3-0 lead after one (1) period of play.

Team Germany was able to get one (1) back early in the second period when Tom Kuhnhackl scored on a penalty shot.  This did not faze Team Pacific as they continued to battle hard and regained their three (3) goal lead mid-way though the second with Nathan MacMaster’s first goal of the tournament.

Team Pacific played a strong defensive game in the third period not allowing Team Germany to capitalize on any of their chances.  Team Pacific won their second game, 4-1.  Pacific goalie Kent Simpson was sensational in net stopping 32 of 33 shots on goal.

Team Pacific has had great overall team play as all 10 goals have been scored by a different player.  For more information on Team Pacific and the World Under 17 Hockey Challenge please visit the World Under 17 Hockey Challenge webpage .
