Limerick, IRE—All eyes were on Owen Hiltz on Sunday, who put up a 5G, 1A performance in a decisive 13-1 victory over England.
Ross Scott (3G, 1A) and Carter Page (2G, 1A) also made their presence known to the English defence. Caleb Creasor blocked every shot in the first half, and Aden Walsh all but one in the second for an 83 per cent save percentage.
“I felt like we got off to a great start. We saw really unselfish play from the team, and had great execution,” said head coach Matt Brown. “We had a bit of a lull in the middle there, after the potential lightning delay, but ultimately we pulled through with the win and it’s just another step in this process.”
Canada is up 2-1 through the tournament, and will round out pool play on Monday night against the Haudenosaunee at 7 p.m. IST.
The quarterfinals begin on August 17, and the full playoff schedule will be announced as it becomes available.
