Following close behind with 9 correct were Ronald Diaz, Jon Field, Mike Field, Yvette Garcia, Eddie Gauna, Steve Horrell, Joy Morton, Rodney Shelby, Christen Stowers, Dorothy Stowers, Kathryn Tallant, Kayla Tallant, Jimmy R. Walker, and Sue Walker.

Mike Field of Amarillo still holds the top spot with a total of 96 with Elmore and Jon Field close behind at 94.

With one more week until the grand prize of $100 is awarded, it is anyone’s game. Good luck to all the contestants, and thank you for playing.
