Ice Hockey: Britain edge closer to medal despite setbacks
Monday 19 April 2010
Great Britain maintained their 100 per cent start to their World Championship campaign with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over South Korea in Slovenia yesterday.
It keeps Britain, who followed a 26-hour bus ride due to flying restrictions because of the cloud of volcanic ash with a 4-1 success over Croatia in their Division One Group B opener yesterday, on course for another medal having claimed bronze in Poland last year.
Phil Hill opened the scoring for Britain on the powerplay in the 27th minute but Korea, who lost their first game 4-2 to Hungary, hit back in the 38th minute through Dong Hwan Song.
However, Jason Hewitt netted what proved to be the game-winning goal for GB with 10 minutes left and despite Korea pulling goaltender Sung Je Park for an extra skater, they could not find an equaliser.
Britain next face hosts Slovenia on Tuesday before games against Hungary on Wednesday and Poland two days later.
