GREAT BRITAIN U16S 7-0 SCOTLAND U17S

Great Britain Under-16s started off their weekend double-header with Scotland Under-17s with a 7-0 victory in Dumfries.

The matches in Scotland are part of a training camp for GB ahead of their participation in the Spring Classic in Swindon at the end of the month.

Finley Howells (7:35), James Spence (14:16) and Ross Clarke (17:05) gave GB a three-goal first-period lead.

Bayley Harewood (21:14), Ethan Reid (25:53) and Jarvis Hunt (36:37) were on target in the second session, while Daniel Hitchings scored GB’s seventh in the third period (56:54).

Netminders Lucas Brine and Bradley Windebank shared the shutout between them.

GB U16s head coach, Steven Lynch, said: “This was a great workout for the boys and an excellent team performance.

“There were many good things across the ice and I was really pleased with what I saw.

“Of course, there are things we have to work on as a team but there are so many positives to take from the game.”

The two sides meet again in Dumfries tomorrow at 4pm.
