Ukraine's youth hockey team under the age of 20 beat Poland on November 14 as part of Group B of the World Cup, which is being held in Kyiv. The match ended with a 3:0 score in favor of "blue and yellow", Sport.ua reports.
The Ukrainians managed to execute a productive attack at the sixth minute of the match. Morozov picked the shot at the goalmouth from which Peresunko sent the puck into the opponent's goalposts – 1:0. It is worth noting that Poles played twice in the majority after the first goal during that period, but they failed to equalize the score.
The second part of the game went without goals, but in the third half, Ukraine scored two more times. At first, Morozov gave the second goal pass, this time to Danylenko, who doubled the score in favor of the Ukrainian national team. A noticeable advantage was on the side of the "blue and yellow", and subsequently the referee also appointed a shootout at the Poles' gates, which was implemented by Peresunko and set the final score - 3:0.
Before that, the Ukrainians had already played one match against the national team of Hungary: they lost with the 1:5 score.
Over the next four days, Ukraine's national team will play three more games, in which it will face the youth teams of France (today, on December 15), Italy (on December 17) and Estonia (on December 18).
The French are now leading the group, winning two matches and scoring a maximum of 6 points.
As we reported earlier, Hockey Club Donbas gave the fans a dramatic victory over Latvian Mogo in the penalty shot series. The whole game took place on an absolutely extraordinary level of dedication and tension.
