Ponoka Stampede rodeo results Day 4

Day 4 saw plenty of movers and shakers at the Ponoka Stampede rodeo.

With cowboys and cowgirls jockey for position in Monday’s final, plenty of big-time performances turned heads on Friday.

Ty Erickson vaulted into second in steer wrestling with the fastest time of the week on Friday. Tanner Brunner still leads all cowboys with a two-run time of 11.3, just ahead of Erickson’s 11.8. Ponoka’s Ben Ramey sits sixth overall at 13.7.

Jacob Stemo of Bashaw had the best bareback ride of the afternoon, putting up an 82.75-point ride on Calgary Stampede Soap Bubbles. He is right on the cutline for Monday’s final, with two rounds left to go. Clint Laye had an 80.75-point ride and Travis Heed notched a 75.50. Spur Lacasse is still out in front at 88.25.

Texas cowboy Reese Riemer also made some noise Friday in tie-down roping. He had a quick 7.8-second run to push his aggregate to 18.2-seconds and into second place overall behind Shane Hanchey at 17.9. Red Deer County’s Virgil Poffenroth is now on the outside looking in for Monday’s final, still sitting at 21.2.

No cowgirl has been able to touch Texas’ Hailey Kinsel, who still leads barrel racing with a 17.511. Eryn Coy of High River pushed her way temporarily into Monday’s Final with an 18.149. Ponoka’s Shayna Weir and Innisfail’s Sydney Daines are also right on the bubble for the final with their times from earlier this week.

Tyler Bingham had a big bull ride to shake up the leaderboard on Friday. The Honeyvile, Utah native put up an 86.75-point ride on Kubota Summer Warrior to move into second place overall. Sage Kimzey scored 86 on On Target and Garrett Smith also had a strong day atop Dense Fog with an 85.25.

Clayton Sellars is also looking for a spot in the final, he posted an 84.75 Friday on Cowboy Camp. Ponoka’s Jordan Hansen earned a spot in the bubble for Monday’s Final with his 83.50 on Click Clackin. Trey Kimzey pitched an 83.00 on Master Splinter and is in the second to last qualifying spot for the final, with two rounds to go.

Dusty Hausauer was the top saddle-bronc rider on Day 4. He posted an 83.25-point ride on Tiger Warrior. Sage Newman also had a strong say with a 79.75 and he currently occupies the last qualifying spot for the final.

Daysland’s own Clark McCarroll moved into sixth overall in team roping along with partner Kyle Smith of Brant. The duo has a 17.6 two head score after day 4.
