In the short go he clung to Ruckus Juice from the Eno Family for an 82 while the crowd went wild.
Cody Coverchuk was second on the evening after scoring 85.5 on Skori’s Minion Stuart, winning over $1,900. Coverchuk had a good couple days earning over $4,000 in two nights combined include Thursday in Hillmond.
Montana’s Dakota Louis took third with his 83 in the long go for $1,400 towards the PBR’s Canadian and World Standings.
