GAME 10: Day three featured game between the United States and Australia.
COQUITLAM, BC – Australia ran into the powerhouse freight train that is the United States. Princeton commit Michael Sowers scored five goals and added two helpers in the 15-4 win over Australia. Sowers looked like Wayne Gretzky from behind the net, commanding the X and distributing passes with precision after drawing double teams. His prowess around the net left fans in the crowd in awe.
Alex Roesner (2G, 2A) teamed up for three of the first four US goals with Sowers. Jared Bernhardt (2G), Mac O’Keefe (1G, 2A), Simon Mathias (1G, 1A), Dox Aitken (1G), and Bryan Costabile (1G). For Australia, Gordon Purdie Jr. led the way with a goal and assist, and Bryan Panting, Matthew Wood and Liam Hood added singles. Luke Dobson made 14 saves in the Australia net in the loss but was the reason the score stayed closer throughout. Willie Klan and Philip Goss split duties in the cage for the U.S.
