After trailing Heppner's town
hoopsters throughout the first half,
after Heppner jumped off to a big
lead at the start, the national guard
team of The Dalles came back
strong in the second half and took
the game 22-20, played on the local
floor Saturday evening. Two suc
cessive long, spectacular shots by
Borckstorff, forward, in the last
minute of play sewed up the game
for the visitors. Robertson, Hepp
ner forward, made a Herculean at
tempt to save the day for the home
boys by a beautiful shot from mid
floor which tied the score at 20-all,
just a moment before Borckstorff's
winning throw. Considerable rough
ness developed in the closing min
utes of play as both teams went
wild in attempts to score, though
the game was clean and hard
fought throughout most of the play.
Heppner's line-up was weakened by
the loss of Shuirman, regular for
ward, though Robertson did his po
sition justice by emerging high
scorer for the locals. Neel, Correll,
Ferguson, Howell and Stewart com
pleted the squad. Poulson refereed.
