Raiders defenceman Callum Burnett and coach Sean Easton won gold medals with Great Britain under-18s at the World Championships in Estonia.

Having bounced back from their 5-4 defeat against Poland to beat Lithuania 3-2 on Friday, the young Brits edged past Korea in their final match.

That left top seeds Poland needing to beat the hosts in normal time to top the group, but the match went to overtime, which saw GB pip Lithuania by virtue of their head-to-head.

Early goals from Richard Krogh and Finlay Ulrick put GB 2-0 up against Korea and Edward Bradley added a third early in the middle session.

But Korea rallied with three goals in five minutes to level, before Liam Kirk’s goal at the start of the final period proved decisive.

GB then had to wait for the outcome of the last match of the tournament and saw Poland take a 3-0 lead, before Estonia rallied to level.

And an overtime winner was little consolation for the Poles, as GB celebrated promotion to Division One B next season.

Mason Biddulph finished as GB’s top scorer with nine points in five matches and also took the team MVP and best forward prize.
