CALGARY - Austin Watson had three goals and four assists to power the United States to a 12-2 win over Latvia in a relegation game Tuesday at the world junior hockey championship.

"I was happy with our effort and intensity," said American head coach Dean Blais. "It was good to see our offence gel and hopefully that can continue."

Nick Bjustad added three goals for the Americans. Jason Zucker, J.T. Miller, Bill Arnold, Adam Clendening, Kyle Rau and Austin Czarnik had the others.

Jack Campbell stopped 27 shots for the U.S., which outshot Latvia 58-29.
