GB U20 keep medal hopes alive with victory over Romania

Great Britain U20 kept themselves in the hunt for a medal at the World Championship (Division 2A) tournament in Tallinn with a 4-2 victory over Romania.

GB have now won twice this week at the Tondiraba Ice Hall and have six points from four matches.

Liam Kirk scored twice and added two assists for a four-point game, while Kieran Brown and Tyler Cooper both had a goal and an assist.

Head coach, Slava Koulikov, said: “This was a hard-fought win against a side previously unbeaten in the tournament.

“We looked good going forward once again, but I think we tightened up at the back compared to the defeat by Estonia.

“We now have a day off to work on preparations for the final game and we are still in the hunt for a medal, so anything can happen.”

Estonia claimed top spot in the group with a comfortable 7-2 win against Korea. GB’s final match is on Saturday when they meet Spain (face-off 11.00am UK time).
