Great Britain under-18s came up short in a nine-goal thriller with Poland in their World Championship clash in Estonia on Wednesday.

After beating Estonia and Australia in their first two matches, the young Brits fell behind early on, before Mason Biddulph levelled.

Poland scored twice in just over two minutes to move 3-1 up, before Biddulph grabbed his fifth goal of the tournament soon after.

And GB – with Raiders defenceman Callum Burnett among their ranks – turned the match around in the middle period as Reece Cochrane levelled and Liam Kirk set up Kieran Brown.

Tony Hand’s side held their 4-3 lead until the 54th minute and then saw Poland snatch a winner on a break out with 2:28 left on the clock.

Raiders coach Sean Easton is one of Hand’s assistants and they will be looking for a way for GB to bounce back when they take on Lithuania in their next match on Friday (11am), before facing Korea on Saturday.
