CALGARY, Alta. – Patrick Koys scored twice and added an assist and Matej Paulovic, Kristian Horvat and Robert Lantosi each had a goal and a helper as Slovakia won bronze at the 2011 World Sport School Challenge with a 5-2 win over the Edge School on Saturday afternoon.
The Edge School came out with an offensive push in the opening 20 minutes, firing 19 shots at Slovak netminder Maros Mikolas, but it was the European side that took a lead to the dressing room, as goals from Koys and Lantosi gave Slovakia a 2-0 advantage after one period.
Cam Amantea got the Edge School on the board with a power play goal early in the second period, but the Calgary-based school couldn’t capitalize on its momentum and found itself back down by a pair of goals after Koys wired a slap shot past Kyle Baumgardner for his second of the game late in the middle frame.
Slovakia put the game away with goals from Paulovic and Horvat before the eight-minute mark of the third period, although Amantea scored his second of the game to round out the scoring for the Edge School, which settled for fourth place in front of its hometown fans.
