Great Britain U20 have been relegated from World Championship (Division 1B) after losing 3-1 against Ukraine on Saturday.
Anton Ruban and Andriy Denyskin put Ukraine 2-0 ahead by the end of the second period, but Duncan Speirs gave GB renewed hope when he fired home in the 51st minute.
GB called a time out with just over a minute to play and replaced goalie Renny Marr with an extra attacker, but the move didn’t pay off as Yaroslav Svishev’s empty-netter with 41 seconds remaining sealed the win for Ukraine.
Hosts Hungary defeated Slovenia 4-3 to secure promotion, pipping Poland to top spot in the six-team tournament.
