Great Britain ease past Estonia to set-up final day showdown with Hungary

Great Britain defeated Estonia 7-1 in their second game at the Olympic qualifying event in Nottingham on Saturday.

Brett Perlini (2), Scott Conway (2), Ollie Betteridge, Scott Conway, Ben Lake and Jonathan Phillips got the goals to set up a winner-takes-all showdown with Hungary.

Head coach, Pete Russell, said: “I thought the last two periods were really good. I wasn’t really happy with the last 10 minutes of the first, but we were very strong in the end.

“It was a packed crowd tonight and a great atmosphere. We had amazing support from our fans.

“We are looking forward to Hungary. It will be a different type of game and we must rest now ahead of a massive day.”

GB face-off against Hungary at 6.00pm, with the winners advancing to the final qualifying in August for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.
