2011 World Sport School Challenge

Slovakia 3 - Edge School for Athletes 1


CALGARY, Alta. – Tomok Torok finished with two goals and an assist as Slovakia’s national under-17 team opened the 2011 World Sport School Challenge with a 3-1 victory over the Edge School on Monday night.

Despite finishing on the short end of the final result, the Edge School hit the scoreboard first just 2:54 in when Zach Bowles converted a power play opportunity, exciting the hometown crowd solidly behind the Calgary-area school.

But Bowles’ goal seemed to spark the Slovakians, who tied the game before the end of the opening period thanks to Torok, who turned the Edge defenceman inside out before roofing his first of two on the night.

Slovakia carried the momentum from Torok’s goal into the final 40 minutes, outshooting the Edge School 24-15 in the second and third periods. Torok set up Matej Pavlovic midway through the second period to give Slovakia its first lead at 2-1, and added insurance five minutes into the third with his second goal.

Slovakia will look to move to 2-0 when it faces Shattuck-St. Mary’s on Tuesday afternoon (1:30 p.m. MT), while Edge School will try to bounce back against Pursuit of Excellence in one of the evening match-ups (5 p.m. MT).
