The National Finals Rodeo continued its annual 10-day run at the Thomas Mack Center in Las Vegas on Thursday.
Unlike the NFR at the Thomas and Mack Center, the Junior NFR at the Las Vegas Convention Center offers breakaway roping for girls 19-and under. This event allows the young women of rodeo one more event to participate in, aside from barrel racing.
Here are the National Finals Rodeo eighth performance results from Thursday, Dec. 13, 2018.

The Saints are 10-3 ATS and the Bears are 9-4 ATS.
