U.S. U-17s drop second straight game
[OPEN NORDIC TOURNAMENT] The U.S. under-17 national team dropped its second game in two days at the Open Nordic Tournament in Denmark. Again once, it fell behind
early and could not recover, losing a 4-1 decision to Norway.
Captain John Hou Souter led Norway with two goals. He put the Norwegians ahead after
the eighth minute, and Andreas Helmersen made it 2-0 after 19 minutes, Elijah Rice cut the deficit to 2-1 in the 45th
minute, but Norwegians put the game away with two more goals in the second half.

closes out group play Thursday against the Faroe Islands.
