Effectiveness lesson for USA U16, Canada West won 6-1

The first period was marked by great performances of both goalies. Chase Bergeron made several impressive saves during Canada's power-play opportunities, and Marek Sobkow kept the puck out in a battle right in front of the goal line. The first goal came in the 13th minute when Calyb Moore tapped in a rebound. Although the USA dominanted possession-wise, Ethan Blake made good use of a quick breakaway and doubled the Canadian lead. Following a pair of goals by Nel and Moore, the score changed to 4-0, and Moffett replaced Bergeron in between the American pipes. However, he couldn't stop the Canadian freight train moving at full speed as Canada West added two more to win 6-1.

Jon Silcox (CAN): "The boys were prepared and played the best match of the tournament. The Americans deserve praise, and I wish them good luck in the match for third place. We weren't satisfied with yesterday's game against the Czechs, but we went through our notes and videos. Today, I am proud of the players, but our work is not yet done here. We need to rest and prepare ourselves."

Will Rennebeck (USA): "We thought we were well-prepared. However, we didn't play our game. Our system was failing, which is something we would like to change."
