NYI Peewee 5, Beijing 3
DJ Walsh scored two goals and one assist as the PAL Jr. Islanders peewee team defeated Beijing 5-3 Saturday morning in Harbin. Beijing defenseman Zhu Qizhang gave the Islanders defensemen fits throughout the game and scored his first of two goals just 57 seconds into the first period. The Islanders responded midway through the frame with three straight goals from Cole Brennan, Walsh and Tim Duffy. After exchanging goals in the second period, the teams headed into the third with the Islanders ahead 4-2. Qizhang’s second goal of the game drew Bejing within a goal early in the final frame, but Walsh stymied the comeback bid with his second goal in the final 1:44 of regulation.
Russia 8, NYI Bantam 2
The PAL Jr. Islanders bantam team suffered its first loss of the tournament Saturday afternoon, falling to a strong Russian team 8-2.

The bantam squad looks to rebound Sunday, when they play their final two games of the tournament.
