[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 Helmersenmade 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.

The USA had dropped its first game on Monday to host Denmark, 2-0, after conceding two early goals. It closes out group play Thursday against the Faroe Islands.
