Team USA would get out of the gates hot as they torched Scotland all game long. The USA offense would dissect that Scotland defense to no end as they would get a 16-2 victory to stay undefeated.

Scotland just could not keep up with the pace of the USA. Their defense is looking better but still couldn't hold that talented USA offense. On offense Scotland was able to make some noise and do some good things when they had the opportunities.

In the first the USA would dominate as they would start the game with a 5-0 run. During that run we would see Ryan Brown net a hat trick as well as Rob Pannell and Tom Schreiber get one a piece. It would look very easy for the USA in the first as they dominated possession time and thus had a ton of opportunities. Scotland's defense just couldn't slow them down.

The second would be much like the first as the USA continued to dominate. Ned Crotty and Jordan Wolf would make it 7-1 before Scotland would finally find the back of the net. Scotland's first goal would come by way of Sean Darroch. That would give a little hope to the Scots but it wouldn't be long before the USA would attack yet again. This time it would be a two goal run by John Haus and Marcus Holman that would put the USA up 9-1 heading into halftime.

The third would see the USA continue to dominate on both sides of the field as their offense and defense were superb all game long. Ryan Brown would start off the scoring before Scotland would awake again. James McBride would give Scotland their second and last goal of the game. USA would close out the third with with a three goal run from Tom Schreiber, Ned Crotty, and Marcus Holman. That would make it a 13-2 USA lead.

USA would close out the game with a three goal run in the fourth quarter. Ryan Brown would get his fifth and sixth goals of the game and Tom Schreiber would get his third. That offensive performance would give the USA a 16-2 win over Scotland.
