THUNDER BAY – Dallas Burgess has an uphill climb at the 2021 world junior qualifier in Saskatoon.

The Thunder Bay curler dropped to 0-3 on Wednesday, falling 7-4 to Whitby, Ont.’s Scott Mitchell in Draw 6 play.

Mitchell stole a single in the second end to lead 2-0, but Burgess bounced back with a pair in the third to even the match.

It was all Mitchell from there.

The Ontario skip put up three in the fourth and stole points in the fifth and sixth ends to put the game on ice.

Burgess, lead Brayden Sinclair, second Matthew Duizer and third Jackson Dubinsky will look to put their first win on the board on Thursday night against Moncton, N.B.’s Josh Nowlan.
