WALLA WALLA - In Saturday night rodeo action at the Southeast Washington Fair and Rodeo, Steven Peebles of Redmond, Ore., took over the bareback riding rodeo lead. Peebles rode to an 83 to take the lead. Casey Colletti posted a 79 and moved into a tie for second.

The leading all-around cowboy, Trevor Brazile, added to that lead with an 8.8 run in tie-down roping Saturday. Brazile's run was the best of Saturday and moved the Texas cowboy into a tie for fifth in the second-go of tie-down roping.

No Saturday tie-down run changed the tie-down aggregate leader board as Matt Shiozawa's 17.7 on two continued to lead the aggregate.

Trevor Knowles from Mount Vernon, Ore., took care of his steer in 4.4 for the best Saturday steer wrestling run. South Dakotian Todd Suhn turned a 4.5 Saturday, and Shawn Greenfield posted a 4.6.

Knowles' run moved him into a tie for third in the second-go, while Greenfield's run, coupled with his 4.4 in the first go moved him into a tie for the rodeo lead with a 9.0 aggregate on two head.

The saddle bronc riding highlighted the Saturday performance with four rides posting scores over 75. Pendleton's Ben Londo was the best with an 82 as he moved into a tie for the rodeo lead. Troy Crowser moved into third with an 81 ride. Roy Johnson moved into fifth with a 80 score and canadian cowboy Luke Butterfield moved into sixth with a 75 ride.

Two California cowboys, Spencer Mitchell and Broc Cresta moved to the second-go lead in team roping with a 4.8 Saturday run. Hermiston cowboys Jake Stanley and Shane Crossley posted a 5.0 on Saturday night and stood tied for fourth in the second-go.

Following their Saturday run, Blaine Linaweaver and Kipp Harrell moved into a tie for third in the aggregate with a 11.0 on two.

No cowgirl changed the top six in barrel racing Saturday. Danna Stovner had the best run of 17.38, but that was only good enough for seventh overall.

The cowboys had another good night against the bulls. Utah cowboy Sonny Murphy rode his bull to the 8-second whistle to score 85 for the best of Saturday. Murphy took over third place. Garrett Vig hung on for a 78 and moved into fifth place.

In opening night action at the Friday edition of the Frontier Days Rodeo, an Agar, S.D., cowboy came out of the bareback chute and established the score to beat.

Joe Gunderson scored a 79 to grab the lead after one night. Kaycee Feild of Payson, Utah, rode to a 76 and stood second after the Friday go.

Scott Kormos, Teague, Texas, turned the fastest tie-down Friday run as he roped and tied his calf in 8.1. The run moved Kormos into a tie with Ace Slone who also had an 8.1 run in Tuesday's slack for the second-go lead.

The bulls lost to the cowboys Friday. Santaquin, Utah cowboy Wesley Silcox scored an 88 to take the lead. But Tim Bingham scored 86, and Ardie Maier scored 83 to give the cowboys three rides in the 80's for the Friday-go.

The champions will be crowned tonight as the rodeo concludes tonight at the Southeast Washington Rodeo grounds at 7 p.m.
