WC 2017 Bratislava Slovakia

Game 4 Quarter Final - 29/6/17 @ 13.00

Team GB 5 - Argentina 3

Team GB again made the perfect start with an early goal from Ben Lowe with only 2 minutes 14 seconds on the clock, team GB got into a bit of penalty problems but were up to the task and killed off the oppositions man advantage with only 7 seconds left in the first period Argentina took a penalty for too many men and 18 seconds into the second period Danny Hutchinson made the extra man advantage court scoring a goal assisted by Nathan Finney And Alex Kingston, however less than two minutes later Danny was in the penalty box when Argentina scored on the powerplay. Team GB had to kill another two shorthanded periods of play which they killed with their usual skill, and when Team GB were on the powerplay Alex Kingston scored giving GB a two goal lead again at the 21.21 however with only four seconds to go in the period Argentina cut the gap to one goal.

In the third period team GB took three separate minor penalties but again were up to the task of penalty killing, however because of these penalties GB's offence suffered and they only made 7 shots on goal. With only 1 minute and 18 seconds on the clock of the fourth period Argentina scored their third and game tying goal, Team GB needed a hero and that came in the ever dependable form of Nathan Finney who skated from the centreline after an outlet pass from Danny Hutchinson he then rifled the puck past the Argentinian netminder for the game winning goal. In the later stages Argentina pulled their netminder for an extra skater and when Team GB controlled the puck Danny Hutchinson ragged the puck to burn off some time and finally slotted the puck away for GB's fifth goal with 13 seconds left in the game.

This was always going to be a difficult game against Argentina because of the style of play but the team showed again their talent especially when it comes to penalty killing, with this win Team GB not only secure the place in the semi- final round but also guarantee the place in the 2019 world championships in Canada
