Britain took the lead, but Norway’s National Ice Hockey team struck back with two quick goals at the start of the third period.

The team finished with a 2-1 victory over the British.

Robert Farmer put the hosts in the lead at 11:27 minutes into the first period, in a match that consistently supplied many chances to both teams.

In the middle period, neither team scored, so the Brits went on the ice with a narrow 1-0 lead as the third and final period started.

Sondre Olden equalized 1.31 minutes into the period. He won the puck in the left circle, went down on goal and sailed the puck over Ben Bowns into the British goal.

Just one minute and 28 seconds later, Markus Søberg put Norway in the lead.

By then, the match was at 42.59 minutes. Søberg feinted Bowns out and flipped the puck over him into the net.

Several chances were missed, even though both teams had goal possibilities towards the end of the game. There is a new battle between the two teams Wednesday night.
