World Championships 2013

03/06/2013 Game 2

Great Britain 5 Vs Austrailia 4 (OT Win)

In a close game team Great Britain win near the end of sudden death overtime.

It was not until nearly ten minutes gone that we had the first goal in the game scored by Australia and it was not until 19:44 that Jack Clarkson equalised the score assisted by Mark Hallam, the Aussises then went on to go ahead in the third quarter by scoring two goals to GB's one.

GB showed great character by coming from behind in the fourth period to tie the game then get a go ahead goal with just over 2 minutes left on the clock with goals coming form Phil Hamer and Jack Clarkson, with only 31 seconds on the clock and with their netminder pulled for an additional skater the Australian's scored to send the game into sudden death overtime.

The overtime period was near its end and penalty shots looked on the cards when with only 5 seconds Kurt Waller stepped up for a breakaway and scored assisted by Hamer and Pearman

This was a bit of a wake up call for team GB who did not play their best against an ever improving Australian side, however on the plus side GB showed they can dig deep and get a result.
