Latvia failed to sustain its fast start against Switzerland on Thursday, eventually falling 7-2 at the world junior championship in Ufa, Russia.

Nikolajs Jelisejevs’ power-play goal 2:45 into the first period didn’t unsettle the Swiss, who were looking to bounce back after failing to make the medal round in last year’s event.
