LEWISTOWN — The second performance of the Central Montana rodeo in Lewistown wasn’t quite as star studded as the first, but still packed in plenty of solid rides.

In the bareback, no one could catch Troy Vaira’s 81 from Wednesday but Helena’s Chase Erickson earned a share of second place with an 80 point ride on “Crow Fair”.

Thursday only saw on sub-5 second time in the steer wrestling. Nevada cowboy Sterling Lambert went 4.4 seconds for second place, behind Justin Shaffer’s 4.1 from Wednesday.

Travis and Brady Tryan recorded the best time of the night in the team roping but still fell short of first place money.
