Patrick Thoresen who recently returned from camp in North America scored the lone goal in a 5-1 loss to Finnish Tappara. Thoresen has landed himself in his father`s stal at Storhamar for the season and is considered one of Norway`s brightest prospects. Lars Peder Nagel also played for Norway as they have put together perhaps one of their best National Teams in Years. The Norwegian team arrived right off the bus and were headed to the ice as the game time was changed and this did not suit the team well.
In the other game, Norway rallied from a 4-1 deficit on goals by Lasse Fredriksen (2) and Christian Thygesen to finish with 4-4 tie.
