The team staged a practice game
Thursday with a team composed of
alumni and several CCC boys. The
game was won by the alumni by the
small margin of one touchdown. The
game did much to help the team
along. It showed up their weak
points and pointed out the strong
ones. With another week's practice
under their belts they will do much
toward correcting weaknesses. Most
of the first team has been chosen,
with some position subject to change.
Anyone going to the game Satur
day will see a real gridiron battle.
It is sure to be close from beginning
to end. Let's see everyone out to
support the Heppner Mustangs in
their first game of the season at 2:30.
