Second place saw Heeler Dustin Shields’s name on the winner’s sheet again, along with Header Clint Cripps, while third place was held by Header Gary Nicholson and Heeler Jebb Goodwin.

In the #8, first- and second-place honours went to Header Leif Branson and Heeler Glen Brown. Brown completed the “hat trick,” as he teamed up with Header Albert Wheele to take third place.
