Group B

Sweden – Czech Republic 1-5 (highlights)
The biggest stunt of the day came from the Czech talents. After a furious start, which resulted in a 2-0 lead after only 4 minutes playing time, many expected the Swedes to come back in the second period. However, it was Filip Forman who put the 3-0 away with a penalty shot, after which all the pressure fell on the Swedish teens. With clever defensive work on the side of the Czechs, which only Swedish Falun player Malte Lundmark managed to penetrate, combined with physical attacking play, the Czechs managed to get a resounding 5-1 victory.
