Great Britain U18 were beaten 4-3 by Estonia after penalty shots in their final warm-up game ahead of the World Championship (Division 2A) tournament in Tallinn.
Lewis English, Kieran Brown and Richard Krogh were GB’s goalscorers.
Interim head coach, Tony Hand, said: “This was another impressive performance from the team.
“There were so many positives and these two games have shown we can compete at this tournament.
“We now have tomorrow’s practice to fine-tune our preparations ahead of the opening game.”
GB begin the tournament on Sunday when they face Estonia again, this time in competitive action (face-off 6.00pm UK time).
