The United States Under-17 Select Team scored five power-play goals en route to a 10-1 win over Slovakia tonight in the 2016 Under-17 Five Nations Tournament at the Dr Pepper StarCenter in Frisco, Texas.
“Our guys competed real hard,” said Cory Laylin (St. Michael, Minn.), head coach of the 2016 U.S. Under-17 Select Team. “I was really happy with the attitude of our team and the work ethic across the board.”
Slovakia took an early 1-0 lead 38 seconds into the contest on a goal by Martin Fasko-Rudas. The U.S. responded with a pair of goals at the 6:11 and 6:46 marks of the first period. Jack Randl (Carpentersville, Ill.) scored first, deking past a Slovak defender and beating Slovak goaltender Matej Batory with a high shot to tie the game, 1-1. Then, 35 seconds later, Jacob Semik (Canton, Mich.) collected a cross-crease feed from Randl and fired a shot past Batory to give the U.S. a 2-1 advantage. Ryan Savage (Scottsdale, Ariz.) then poked home a rebound off of a Gavin Hain (Grand Rapids, Minn.) shot late in the period to make it 3-1 Team USA after one period.
The U.S. scored three straight power-play goals to break the game open in the second period. Calen Kiefiuk (Macomb, Mich.) increased the U.S. lead to 4-1 at 4:10 of the period, then Devlin McCabe (North Oaks, Mich.) scored his first goal of the tournament 2:35 later followed by Savage scoring his second of the game to give Team USA a 6-1 advantage at the 10:56 mark of the period.
