COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Jack Roslovic (Columbus, Ohio) scored in the closing minutes to send the game into overtime as the U.S. National Under-18 Team skated to an eventual tie with Colorado College, 2-2, Saturday (Dec. 27) at the Broadmoor World Arena.

The Tigers struck first with just 21 seconds remaining in the opening frame to take the 1-0 lead into the intermission.

Christian Fischer (Wayne, Ill.) knotted the score for Team USA just over two minutes into the middle stanza. The lone tally of the second period, Fischer's power-play goal was assisted on by Brendan Warren (Carleton, Mich.) and Casey Fitzgerald (North Reading, Mass.).

Colorado College regained the lead midway through the third period, notching a power-play marker at 9:59. The one-goal advantage would not hold up as Roslovic's score at 18:10 tied the game once more. Matthew Tkachuk (St. Louis, Mo.) and Luke Kunin (Chesterfield, Mo.) earned the helpers.

Michael Lackey (Washington, D.C.) made two saves in overtime, and 21 total in the game, to help preserve the tie for the U.S.

The following night (Dec. 28), Colorado College hung four power-play goals on the U.S. National Under-18 Team and doubled up Team USA, 8-4. Tkachuk potted two goals for the U.S. in the setback while Joseph Masonius (Spring Lake, N.J.) and Troy Terry (Highlands Ranch, Colo.) each had single tallies for the U18s.
