ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. - Kyle Lamb scored two power-play goals to lead Ontario to a 5-2 win over Pacific in the gold medal game at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge on Sunday.

Ontario captures its 4th Gold Medal since this event’s inception in 1995. Team Pacific lost its third consecutive gold medal game to capture a silver medal. Player of the game honours went to Kyle Lamb for Team Ontario while Brock Bradford took home the award for Team Pacific.

TSN will televise the gold medal game of the 2004 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge from St. John's, Newfoundland, on a tape delay basis. The U-17 gold medal game, was played on Sunday, Jan. 4th, will be aired on Monday, Jan. 5 at 3:00pm ET / 12noon PT, immediately following the World Junior Hockey Championship Gold Medal Game from Finland which will be aired 12noon ET / 9am PT on Monday, .

The Gold Medal Final was another rematch from the round robin between the two teams, where they played to a hard fought 5-5 tie in round robin action.

In the gold medal match-up, Team Ontario opened the scoring in the first on a power-play goal by Andrew Cogliano. Team Pacific responded with a goal by Brock Bradford while on a 5-3 power-play. The first period ended in a 1-1 tie, with the two teams trading power play goals.

Team Ontario broke the deadlock when Kyle Lamb scored a power-play goal just 50 seconds into the second period.

Team Ontario widened the gap with goals by Kevin Baker and Cal Clutterbuck to increase its lead to 4-1. Team Pacific came back from 4-0 down versus Team Ontario in the 5-5 round robin game, but they were not able to pull off the same heroics in this one.

Team Ontario added a power-play goal in the third on a goal by Kyle Lamb, his second of the night. Team Pacific’s Kris Russell scored a short handed goal with just under 5 minutes remaining, but it was too little too late.

Andrew Cogliano had 1 goal and 2 assists, and Patrick McNeill added three assists for Team Ontario in the 5-2 win.

This game set a tournament record for highest ever attendance with 6,247, which was a sell-out at Mile One Arena.

Canada's regional teams swept the medals for the first time at this year's World Under-17 Challenge, finishing 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Canada enters 5 regional teams at this event, while the other five teams are made up of international all-star or national teams.
