Buesa on target as Great Britain U20 win World Championship warm-up

Great Britain U20 warmed-up for the upcoming World Championship (Division 2A) tournament with a 5-2 victory over Korea in an international challenge game at Dumfries Ice Bowl.

Goals by Sam Duggan and Cole Shudra either side of the first break gave GB a 2-0 lead, before Scottish-born Jordan Buesa (above) added a third after 23 minutes.

Korea pulled one back through Juhyung Lee, but Jordan Kelsall restored the three-goal advantage midway through the second period.

Mac Howlett made it 5-1 in the 38th minute, and although TK Lee pulled one back for Korea late in the game GB comfortably held on for the win.

Head coach Slava Koulikov said: “I think we did alright. There were some good points and some points we can correct.

“Overall, it has been good. It is only one game but it was a game against a good opponent. It is certainly something we can review and we can add to it.

“It has been an interesting few days and a lot of work has taken place on and off the ice.”

Tickets for the tournament are available now from the Midsteeple Box Office and Ice Bowl. To purchase online please click here.
