Stelio Mattheos (Brandon Wheat Kings) scored a first period penalty shot as the two sides came out of the first frameĀ knotted at one.

Canada climbed ahead 3-1 on second period goals from Maxime Comtois (Victoriaville Tigres) and Isaac Ratcliffe (Guelph Storm), tallies that came five minutes apart.

Entwistle would score midway through the third frame to solidify the 4-1 final score as Canada outshot the Latvians 50-18.
