Few changes on final night of Bigfork PRCA rodeo

Print Article

BIGFORK — Five of the seven times/marks posted on Friday held up as the Bigfork Summer Pro Rodeo came to a close Saturday evening with its second performance.

The two events that changed hands on the final night were bareback riding, where Buck Lunak posted a 78-point go on Domino Warrior, to take first place, and in team roping with Brenten Hall and Chase Tryan, they ripped off a 5.4-second time to win that event.

Pascal Isabelle of Okotokos, Alberta, had a 77.5 point ride Friday to lead the bareback. He settled for second.

Will Powell and Caleb Gurdipee, who had the best team roping time for the first performance, drifted all the way back to fourth with their 6.5-second effort.

Chad Johnson won the all-around title for his placing in tie-down roping and team roping.

Two riders added scores in bull riding with Parker Breding leaving the arena with an 82 and Gerald Eash of Trego next with a 78.

Cole Wagner of Valier was the lone cowboy during the first performance to conquer the bulls with an 86 on Blackberry Smoke.

Both performances of the first PRCA event in Bigfork were sold out.
