Great Britain 5 Latvia 6
Peter Woods, the Great Britain coach, was not a happy man after his side's 6-5 defeat to Latvia in their opening World Championship Pool B game in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, yesterday.
Britain lost to a goal scored midway through the final period by Alexander Belavskis, who struck for Latvia while their opponents were a man short. "The refereeing was a bit one-sided and the penalty which led to their winning goal was something of a mystery call," Woods said. "We had nine penalties [against us] while they had only two, and the refereeing was a major factor in the game."
Britain's next game in the tournament is against Switzerland today.
