Team USA claims second place at Under-17 Four Nations in Plymouth


By @StefanKubus –

PLYMOUTH – It wasn’t the result they were hoping for, but they’ve still claimed some hardware.

Team USA finished the 2018 Under-17 Four Nations with silver after falling to Russia 3-2 in Saturday night’s championship game in overtime.

Ty Smilanic, a Little Caesars and Belle Tire alum, scored twice, but Russia’s Shakir Mukhamadullin scored his team-best fourth goal of the tournament in overtime to give the Russians a win one night after the U.S. beat them 4-2.
