Game Story

BØGLE LEADS NORWAY TO FIRST WIN

WENDY GRAVES

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Magnus Bøgle assisted on goals from Morten Værnes, Loyd Remi Solbert and Emil Sørheim and Norway scored a 3-1 win over Korea for its first win of the 2016 World Sledge Hockey Challenge.

Værnes also picked up assist, as did Audun Bakke and Knut Andre Nordstoga.

Kjell Christian Hamar earned the win in goal.

Woo-Chul Park had the lone goal for Korea. Jae-Woong Lee took the loss in net.

Norway outshot Korea 13-6.

Wednesday’s game marked the first meeting between the teams at a World Sledge Hockey Challenge, and 1,000 schoolkids were there to cheer them on.

The only goal of the opening period was scored by Norway on the power play. Bakke barely kept the puck in at the blue-line and continued to control play up high. He left a pass for Bøgle, who in turn gave the puck to Værnes. Værnes’ shot from outside the top of the left face-off circle beat Lee short side.

Korea’s best shot at a goal in the opening 15 minutes came when the team was awarded a penalty shot, but Hamar came up big with a blocker save on Young-Sung Kim

Korea upped the physical play in the second period, throwing more checks to try and get Norway off its game. Norway, however, was unfazed and continued to create more scoring chances.

With two minutes to play in the second period, Bøgle picked up his second assist of the game, when he sent a short pass to Solberg, who slid the puck in from the top of the crease.

Park broke up Hamar’s shutout bid with seven minutes to go in regulation. A loose puck found its way between the top of the left circle and the blue-line, where with a quick flick of the wrist Park sent it high into the net.

Norway got that goal back late in the third. Bøgle left a drop pass for Sørheim, who went low glove side with a shot from the high slot.
