Stephen Culling, Jake Watson finish out of the money at Calgary Stampede finals

Both Jake Watson and Stephen Culling did well enough at the Calgary Stampede to advance to the final round on July 14, in saddlebronc and steer wrestling respectively. Watson finished second in Pool A to advance to the final, with a high score of 87.5 points, while Culling finished fourth in Pool A with a fastest time of 3.9 seconds.

Unfortunately, neither had their best runs on Sunday. Watson had a score of 85, good enough for seventh, short of the top-four finish he would need to advance to the short-go (money round). Likewise, Culling had a disappointing time of 16.9 seconds, which put him in ninth.
