TURKU, FINLAND -The United States suffered its first defeat in under-19 international play this afternoon when it lost to Canada in an overtime heartbreaker, 11-9, at the 2012 FIL U-19 World Championship. The U.S. rallied from three goals down at the beginning of the fourth quarter to force overtime.

Canada became the first team to defeat the U.S. in U19 international play since sanctioned competition began in 1988. The U.S., which has won all six gold medals contested, is now 37-1 all-time.

After forcing overtime, the U.S. squad took the lead with 1:21 remaining in the first overtime, but Canada responded with three unanswered in the final four-minute overtime period. Midfielder Chad Tutton scored what proved to be the game winner on an extra-man opportunity with 2:01 remaining.

Duke sophomore goaltender Kyle Turri made four saves in second half action as the United States rallied back from the three-goal deficit. Kyle Keenan was held scoreless for the day after opening the tournament with four goals against Australia.

Team USA continues pool play tomorrow, July 15, against England at 12 p.m. (ET).
