KENORA — Dallas Burgess and Kory Carr have kept their Brier hopes alive.

With two losses heading into Friday morning’s draw, playing in a triple-knockout format, both Thunder Bay skips pulled out wins to stay in contention at the Northern Ontario provincial playdowns at the Kenora Recreation Centre.

Carr downed Kenora’s Ryan Meadows 9-7, ending the hometown hopeful’s chance at victory in the five-day event.

Burgess did the same to Kenora’s other entry, stealing one in the 10th to edge Michael Szajewski 7-6 in C-side competition.

In other men’s play, Sudbury’s Tanner Horgan was pushed to the brink of elimination with a 6-5 loss to Chris Gilbota, Horgan’s second straight defeat. He’ll take on Burgess for a chance to stay alive on Friday night.

Thunder Bay’s Brian Adams Jr. dropped to the C-side after a 9-4 loss on Friday to Sandy McEwan. McEwan and Gilbota will tangle in the evening draw for a spot in the B-side final.

Adams and Carr will play each other for the right to advance, the loser going home with their third loss of the week.
