Greece 3 – Canada 2
The two championship favorites met this week in one of the biggest matches of the season. Greece was able to defeat Canada thanks to an amazing performance by goalkeeper Jason Stock. Jason stopped 25 shots as Canada outshot Greece 27 to 14. Soto Sellaidopoulos took care of all the scoring for Greece by recording his first hat trick of the season.
