Game Report 1903 World Sledge Hockey Challenge
PLAYED AT: MacLauchlan Arena
Date: Dec 6, 2017
GAME NOTES: U.S. TOPS CANADA FOR FIRST PLACE AT WSHC JASON LA ROSE CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Brody Roybal opened and closed the scoring, leading the United States to a 5-2 win over Canada and first place in the preliminary round Wednesday at the 2017 World Sledge Hockey Challenge. The Americans finished the round robin unbeaten for the fourth year in a row, and will face Italy in their semifinal on Thursday afternoon (12 p.m. AT). Canada meets Korea later in the day in its semi (7 p.m. AT). Pressure in the Canadian end led to the opening goal, with Roybal jumping on a turnover before tucking a shot around goaltender Corbin Watson (Kingsville, Ont.) for the 1-0 lead. Declan Farmer took advantage of a fortuitous bounce less than three minutes, doubling the lead after the puck hopped over the stick of a Canadian defender at the hashmarks. Billy Bridges (Summerside, P.E.I.) got the crowd at MacLauchlan Arena back into it before the end of the opening frame, wiring a shot past U.S. netminder Steve Cash with the Canadians enjoying a two-man advantage. The P.E.I. native struck again just shy of the 10-minute mark of the second period, playing give-and-go with Liam Hickey (St. John’s, N.L.) before netting the tying goal. But Josh Misiewicz restored the American lead late in the middle frame, finishing off a pretty passing play in front of Watson. Kevin McKee added a little insurance less than a minute into the third period when his shot went up and over the Canadian keeper, chasing him from the net in favour of Dominic Larocque (Quebec City, Que.). Canada pushed to get back into it, outshooting the U.S. 6-4 in the third period and 22-14 overall, but Roybal finished the scoring into an empty net with 21 seconds to go.
