Ukraine - Germany 1-11 (1-0, 0-3, 0-8)
Host Germany remained the dominant team at the World U20 Championship Division I Group A in Bad Tolz after an 11-1 thumping of Ukraine- Germany has now won all of its games by a margin of at least six goals and will face Austria on Saturday for the gold medal and promotion game.
Germany took awhile to get its offense going as Ukraine's Georgii Kicha scored the only goal of the first period, a power play tally at 19:47.
But the lead was short-lived as Germany sparked to life in the second period. Constantin Braun equalised in a five-on-three power play at 25:23 before Patrick Hager and Frank Maurer closed the second period with a 3-1 lead for Germany.
Germany made its closing statement clear in the third period, piling on eight more goals. Defenceman Stephan Daschner stood out with two goals and three assists. Six of the eight goals were scored on the power play not least because of an aggressive atmosphere in the last period with 66 penalty minutes against Ukraine and 29 against Germany.
