The U.S. National Under-17 Team fell to the Lincoln Stars, 5-3 despite a two-goal performance from Alex Turcotte (Island Lake, Ill.).

Lincoln came out strong scoring three goals in the first frame.

Turcotte put the U17s on the board at 15:57 of the first period. Case McCarthy (Clarence Center, N.Y.) sent the puck to center ice where Turcotte corralled it, skated it to the front of the net, and around the pad of Lincoln’s Tomas Vomacka shorthanded.

Lincoln added two more goals in the second to lead, 5-1 heading into the final frame.
