SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – As PBR (Professional Bull Riders) welcomed fans back into the arena to the first live sporting event since mid-March in Denny Sanford PREMIER Center, Game One of the Monster Energy Team Challenge Playoffs ended in a 0-0 tie. Team Las Vegas and Team Boot Barn went head-to-head on the dirt, but were flattened by a raucous pen of bulls, who jerked and whipped and violently flung all eight cowboys over 14 outs, turning in 10 bull scores of more than 43 points. Team Las Vegas (4-2-1) will move on to Playoff Day Two Saturday based upon its regular season aggregate score, keeping its Monster Energy Team Challenge Championship hopes alive. After the loss, Team Boot Barn (3-2-2) headed to a consolation game for fifth place. Team Las Vegas moves on to play Division B No. 1 seed Team Pendleton Whisky tomorrow, Saturday, July 11. The winner of that game will secure a berth in the Monster Energy Team Challenge Championship.
“The bull power is the same it was in Vegas,” said Team Las Vegas Captain Stetson Wright. 
“I just didn’t show up ready tonight obviously. But luckily my team rode good coming in during the regular season and we are moving on.”
