Paralympic gold medallists the United States booked their place in the semi-finals with a comfortable victory over South Korea at the World Para Ice Hockey Championships in the Czech Republic.
The American side, who beat arch-rivals Canada in their opening game yesterday, swept aside the Paralympic bronze medallists 4-0 in Group A at Ostravar Arena.
Jack Wallace, Brody Roybal, Declan Farmer and Noah Grove were on the scoresheet for the US, who have guaranteed their place in the last four with a game to spare.
"We're happy to have two wins against a pair of quality opponents at this point in the tournament," said head coach David Hoff.
"We've put ourselves in a good position for the semi-finals, but I think there are areas of our game we can clean up to help us reach another level of play."
