U.S. National Under-17 Team Defeats Czech Republic, 3-1,
in Five Nations Tournament Opener 

Suthers, Anderson and Jones Each Score in Victory
DMITROV, Russia - Keenan Suthers (Macomb, Mich.), Joey Anderson (Roseville, Minn.) and Max Jones (Rochester, Mich.) each scored as the U.S. National Under-17 Team defeated the Czech Republic, 3-1, here today at Dmitrov Arena.

After a scoreless opening frame, the Czech Republic struck first just 44 seconds into the second period on the power play. Team USA responded at 8:38 to knot the game when a Suthers shot from the high slot snuck past Czech goaltender Adam Brizgala. Luke Martin (St. Louis, Mo.) assisted. Anderson's breakaway tally gave the U.S. a 2-1 lead at 15:26. Graham McPhee (Bethesda, Md.) collected a helper on the play.
Jones beat a sprawled out Brizgala at 5:26 of the third frame to give Team USA a two-goal cushion; a lead the U.S. would hold onto for the win. Clayton Keller (Swansea, Ill.) and Anderson picked up the assists.
Jake Oettinger (Lakeville, Minn.) made 25 saves between the pipes for Team USA in the victory.
