Erik Foley scored for the second straight game, but the U.S. fell to Finland, 2-1 here tonight at the 2016 USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp at USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Michigan.

Both teams traded chances early in the first period and while the United States nearly converted on a power play, Finland entered the first intermission with a 1-0 lead off a goal by Eeli Tolvanen.

Finland extended its lead to 2-0 with 4:29 left in the middle stanza when Sami Tavernierโ€™s shot slipped past Jake Oettinger.

Foley brought the United States back within one 3:17 later when he back-handed a pass from Christian Fischer for a power play goal.

Despite outshooting Finland, 14-5, in the final frame, the United States was unable to find the equalizing goal. Oettinger finished with 25 saves in the loss.
