Haiti comes into the game against Great Britain after a convincing 6-2 win over Hong Kong and exit the initial stage top seeded in their division. Great Britain finished in second place in the B1 division and beat Bermuda 5-3 just 24 hours earlier.
Haiti struck just 1:43 into the game, and guess who; it was their captain, Paul-Arthur Plasir finding the back of the net with a nice wrister from the right side off the rush. They continued to press it and GBR found itself reeling mid-way through the first when Chery found the back of the net soon after to make it 2-0. Haiti found itself down on a 5-3 kill and GBR pounced, cutting the lead to 2-1 with Ellard finding a rebound in front.
Alex Paul put Haiti up 3-1 about five minutes into the 2nd on the power play and they never looked back. Penalties continued to play a factor in the game. Haiti continued its strong play on special teams throughout, and GBR never managed to take advantage on the power play despite a number of opportunities. Haiti went on to win 4-1 after a lone goal from Eddy Nadeau in the 3rd.
This sets up a big match-up for Haiti tomorrow night, as they play a strong French squad who have proven that they can both run and hang with the physically strongest teams in the corners. Great Britain will have a quick turn-around and have Cayman Islands tomorrow morning at 9am.
