Great Britain in the semi-finals of B-Pool

After a difficult group phase in the A Pool, the British get back on track with a 6:4 victory over Bermuda. They win the quarter-finals of the B Pool. 

After a group phase in the A Pool without winning a point, Great Britain was keen to put a positive spin on the tournament in the deciding matches in the B Pool. In the quarter-finals, they faced Bermuda, who had finished round robin in the B Pool in broad midfield. 

It was the Brits who started the game better. After just 30 seconds, Smith scored unmarked in front of the opposing goal. The Brits immediately followed up in powerplay, but got caught out by Bermuda keeper Farmer. After this cold start, Bermuda found its feet, but Estey failed several times. After 10 minutes it got its deserved reward. Merritt equalized the game. Shortly before the first buzzer, however, Great Britain responded by taking the lead again through Smith. 

The Brits then put their stamp on the game. A powerplay goal after the first break from a long-range shot by Lewis gave them a two-goal lead. Less than a minute later, Kristof made it 4:1. Holmes then replaced Farmer in the goal of the Bermudas. His team responded and made it 4-2 through Brodsky with a shot from distance, but the joy was short-lived as Holmes was beaten shortly afterwards: Cole scored from the blue line. Bermuda continued to believe in its chances, and was able to celebrate its third goal through Bailey. But the Brits did not let anything else get in the way. Cole increased the lead to 6:3 after a fine solo run. Bermuda’s fourth goal from Matchett was merely cosmetic.
