PLYMOUTH, Mich. — Jon Mor stopped all 29 shots he faced, Gavin Hain scored twice and K'Andre Miller registered three points as the Team USA under-18 squad pinned a 5-0 loss on the Central Illinois Flying Aces on Saturday.
The game was marred by 125 total penalty minutes, 74 of them going to Central Illinois. All but 17 of the penalty minutes came at the 6:08 mark of the third period when four players on each side were given 10-minute misconducts.
Kris Carlson also made 29 saves for the Aces, who slipped to 7-6-1.
After a scoreless first, USA seized control by scoring on three times while peppering Carlson with 16 shots in the second. Hain struck first at 8:48, less than six minutes before Trevor Janicke and Patrick Giles each scored in a span of 38 seconds.
Hein picked up his second goal with 9½ to play. After the Aces' Sebastian Dirven received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for spearing with 5:19 left, K'Andre Miller finished the scoring with a power play goal.
The Aces return to Grossinger Motors Arena this week for a two-game series with Youngstown, with 7:07 p.m. faceoffs Friday and Saturday.
