Raiders defenceman Callum Burnett and coach Sean Easton helped Great Britain under-18s to a 6-3 win over hosts Estonia in their first match at the World Championships in Tallinn.

Less than two minutes had been played when Mason Biddulph, son of Brian, opened the scoring.

And he struck again just 10 seconds later, with a power play goal from Richard Krogh and shorthanded effort from Jordan Buesa completing a superb first period for GB.

Buesa made it 5-0 just 90 seconds into the middle session, forcing the Estonians to switch goalies, and they hit back three minutes later.

A shorthanded second in the 32nd minute was followed by a power play effort to make it 5-3, before Patrick Larkin netted GB’s sixth on the next shift.

And there was no further addition to the score as GB held on for the victory, despite being outshot 31-21.

GB play Australia, beaten 4-1 by Korea in their opener, on Monday at 2.30pm.
