HOWEVER, EXHIBITING FINE TEAM-WORK, SWEDEN FINISHED THE FIRST PERIOD TWO GOALS AHEAD - BY OHRLUND AND MAATTA. TWO MORE GOALS FOR SWEDEN CAME IN THE SECOND PERIOD FROM A. ANDERSSON AND OHRLUND. THEIR ATTEMPTS TO GO FURTHER AHEAD IN THE THIRD PERIOD WERE FRUSTRATED LINDNER, THE WEST GERMAN GOAL-MINDER, MADE TWENTY-SEVEN SAVES IN ONE OF THE TOURNAMENT'S OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCES.
