GAME 34: 9th-12th and 13th Place determining Quarterfinal match-up between Scotland and Mexico.
COQUITLAM, BC – Israel stuck with Australia for one quarter before the Crocodiles pulled away with a 7-0 run in the second quarter en route to a 21-9 win over Israel. Both offences were explosive, combining for 20 goals, but the Australian experience carried them into the semifinals. The Australian offence was led once again by Gordon Purdie Junior with three goals and six assists. Other scoring came from Jordan Campbell (6G, 2A), Pius Bonjui (4G, 2A), Matthew Wood (4G), Brayden Panting (2G, 2A), Sean Clarke (1G) and Keegan Davies (1G, 1A). Luke Dobson and Lincoln Potter split duties in the cage for the win. Zach Ornstein was terrific for Israel at the faceoff X going 18-for-31 and added two goals off faceoff wins. Nick Schulkin added three goals with singles coming from Sagi Hashai, Yotm Drori, Ilan Hascal, and long-pole Noah Knopf. Australia moves on to face the undefeated Americans on Thursday (14-July-2016) at 4:30 p.m. in the first championship semifinal, while Israel will look to rebound from its first loss of the tournament in a 5th-8th place semifinal game against fellow U-19 tourney newcomer, Ireland, at 3:30 p.m.
