    Japan beat the United States 6-3 in the men's ice hockey competitions at the Harbin Universiade on Wednesday.

    Japan will play Czech Republic to compete for the fifth place in the men's ice hockey while the USA will face the host China to vie for the seventh place on Thursday.

    "It's an important match for us. We did well in the power play and the transition was fluent too," said Mahon Mark, head coach of the Japanese team.

    "I was very disappointed with the lost. Japan played well and we deserved the lost," told the head coach in American team Joe Augusine.

    "We didn't prepare well for the match against Japan and I should take the responsibility," he added.

    The Japanese were brought unbridled joy as Motoki Sakagami scored the first goal on a power play at 6:10 of the first period.

    Their joy didn't last long as Krannich Kyle and Jason O'bannon scored, through power play and equal strength respectively, at 12:52 and 17:09 for the USA in the same period to take the lead.

    However, the Americans could not continue their domination as two Japanese forwards Tanaka Ryo and Konno Mitsuyoshi added two goals at 25:07 and 30:29 both through power plays to finish the second period at 3-2.

    Though Johnny Liang scored in the third period, the American's hope were completely dashed after Japan made three more shots to seal the victory at 6-3.

    Earlier in the day, Russia thrashed their arch rival Slovakia 9-3.

    Already settled the top place in the group, Russia found the rhythm early in the first period when Vasiliy Tokranov scored at 9:57 minutes on power play, helping his team take a lead at 1-0.

    The Slovakian rallied after the substitution as Jan Babic and Michal Babic found home in 23:53 and 26:25 respectively in the second period to lead the match but Russian choked the Slovakian surge with two goals at 3-2 in the same period.

    The Slovakian still saw a slim hope looming ahead after they leveled the score at 3-3 early in the third period but Russia controlled the game since then with six more shots in a row in dazzling speed, settling the match at 9-3. (Northeast web)
