The camp started with some tactical training as well as on court practice before the team took on Swedish 4th division team Solfjäderstaden. They are a good team who have their aims set at the
Swedish third division and it looks like they will succeed.

Solfjärderstaden took the lead pretty early and found the net before the two minute mark despite a solid effort in goal by Michael Adamek. The Swedish team had a 1-3 lead after the first
period and wouldn't let Team USA to close. Midway throught the game the score hiked to 4-6 efter a goal by newcomer Mattias Andreasson but the game would end 7-10 and a loss for the U.S.
