Finland has won its second game in a row and became runner-up in Group B, enough to reach the quarterfinals of the WFC Prague. Norway gets beaten SCORE and moves on to the quarterfinals, the longer route to a potential spot in the QF’s.

The reigning champion was clearly a size too big today for Norway. At 4.00, Sami Johansson opened the score and Joonas Pylsy and Jussi Piha increased the lead. Norway had to wait a long time for its first goal, as only in the third period Patrick Hjemgard found the net for his team. In between, Ville Lastikka and again Pylsy and Johansson had scored, so after Hjemgard’s goal, the score was 1-6.

The 4.188 spectators saw Finland increase the score even more at the end of the game with goals from Lauri Kapanen, Miko Kailiala and Piha again. With this 1-9 victory, Finland has secured a spot in the quarterfinals. Norway will meet Australia in the playoffs.
