Anthony Louis scored a pair of unassisted goals in the third period to lead the U.S. National Under-18 Team into the 2012 U18 Four Nations Tournament championship following a 5-3 victory over Sweden on Friday at the Ann Arbor Ice Cube in Michigan.
Sweden pulled to within 3-2 on a power-play goal by Robert Hagg 1:26 into the third before Louis converted a wraparound at the 12:52 mark. Hagg then scored his second of the game to cut the deficit to one at 17:23 before his team pulled the goalie for an extra attacker. Louis then completed the scoring on an empty-net goal with 12 seconds remaining.
The United States finished pool play with a 2-0-1 record and will play Sweden on Saturday in the tournament final at 7 p.m. ET. Finland will battle Switzerland in the third place game at 3:30 p.m.
