The Latvian U-18 national team led by Oļegs Sorokin lost to the Austrian U-20 national team 5-6 in extra time at the U-20 Four Nations tournament in Vojens (Denmark).

Dmitrijs Diļevka, Rauls Ladusāns, Ričards Pētersons, Pavel Nikitins and Antons Macijevskis scored goals for the Latvian national team. On the other hand, Bruno Osmanis collected two assists.

Defender Oskar Nilas Briedi was recognized as the best player in the ranks of the Latvian national team in this game.

In the first match of the U-20 tournament, our U-18 national team lost 0:4 to Denmark, but on Friday they capitulated to the Norwegian U-20 national team 2:7.

Before going to Denmark, our hockey players held joint training sessions at HS “Rīga” ice hall on November 6 and 7.

Latvia’s U-18 national team includes two goalkeepers, nine defenders and 13 forwards.

Herbert Vasiļjevs, Maksims Širokovs and goalkeeper coach Edgars Lūsiņš will assist Sorokin in his work with the Latvian U-18 hockey team this season. On the other hand, Raivis Miezāns will take care of the physical training, while Artūrs Barovskis will perform the duties of the video coach.

Next year’s U-18 World Championship elite division tournament will be held in Finland. The national team led by Sorokin will play in one subgroup with the USA, Slovakia, Finland and Norway.
