This game gave Heppner its second

did the night before; none of Coach
Knox's hoopsters did, for that mat
ter, but the Mustang center still
managed to fatten his game average
with 14 points.

with two minutes to go diminished
rapidly when Houghton, Irrigon for
ward, sank a basket to just miss sur
passing his host's score.
