A dominant performance at the TEP Showcase in Toronto, Ontario saw the German select team defeat Jamaica easily 7-1 on Friday night to finish off the first full day of competition.

Despite some good chances by Jamaica early in the contest, Germany would dominate the first period. Germany’s roster featured prospects playing in German junior leagues, while Jamaica was made up of players from local Canadian tier two hockey leagues in Ontario.

Germany’s Valentin Busch got his country on the board first after knocking in a rebound off of Lars Schiller’s point shot that went off the end boards and back in front, beating Jamaican netminder Adam Wisco on the left side to make it 1-0.

Then, two minutes later, Germany scored yet again. Luca Glaser found the loose puck off a Jamaican defender and fired a quick shot past Wisco, beating him over his glove to make it 2-0.

With 1:35 left in the first, Germany took a commanding 3-0 lead. This time, Maximilan Adam's shot whisked past Wisco, using a pass from Tom Knobloch effectively before sending it off quickly into the net.

Things weren’t going well for Jamaica, who would surrender a fourth straight goal. At 3:49, Charly Jahnke somehow managed to beat Wisco on a shorthanded floater, going up high to make it 4-0 with most of the game still to go.

13:42 remaining in the game, Jamaica finally got on the board for the first of the game. The team showed some solid pressure early on before eventually having Carter Thorton fire a shot from the left faceoff circle past Patrick Berger and in to make 4-1, giving the team just a bit of life.

With nine minutes left, Germany scored their second shorthanded goal of the game. It wasn’t as easy this time, but Fabian Koziol jammed one in close to make it 5-1. Nic Kalpouzos would beat Wisco blocker side with just over six minutes to go before Nocan Regan finished off the game in the final minute, giving Germany the final 7-1 victory.

Jamaica has two games to play on Saturday, starting the day off with a 12:30 PM game against NHD before meeting the Rayside Balfour Canadians to finish off the tournament at 5:30 PM.

Earlier in the day, Jamaica easily defeated the Midland Flyers 5-1 to start the tournament. The game was dominated by special teams, with Dante Jones’ goal proving to be the only one that wasn’t on the power play or penalty kill. St. Michaels Buzzers star Cameron Searles was the talk of the game, scoring shorthanded and on the power play to record two goals in the victory.
