WNFR 2015 Day 5 Team ropers tie at the top

LAS VEGAS – Team ropers Derrick Begay and Clay O’Brien Cooper are officially on fire, and on top of the world. Standings, that is.

The duo won their third round in five tries when they split the Round 5 win with Coleman Proctor and Jake Long with a 4.0-second run.

Both Begay and Cooper have earned a total of $75,942 in five nights, and tonight they took the world standings lead from two-time defending world champs Clay Tryan and Jade Corkill. It’s the first time a team other than Tryan and Corkill have led the world standings since February.
