-After Russia flew out to a 3-0 lead at each team’s first games at the World U17 Hockey Challenge in Quispamis, New Brunswick, Canada Red came back. Portland’s Seth Jarvis scored in the second with an assist going to Brandon’s Ridly Greig and Seattle’s Payton Mount added another in the third period off a set up by Jarvis.
