A third period power play goal against on Friday to the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers and Team SD 19U falls to 0-1-1 with a 2-1 loss.
Mitchell’s Kelsey Amick tied the game at 1-1 with a power play goal in the first period but it was all Team SD could muster as they were held to just one goal in each of its first two games.
