Locals Take Game From Irrigon Team Possessing an enviable record of ten straight wins and one defeat, the latter number was increased last Saturday as Hpner edged out a 24 to 23 victory over the championship-labelled Irrigon squad. This game gave Heppner its second win in two nights, a decided change of basketball menu for local fans. Irrigon put up a better battle against the Mustangs than did Fossil the night before, but they were still un able to match the speedy play of Heppner's surprising squad. Van Marter didn't have quite the eye for hitting the basket that he 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. Heppner's victory came close not to being such, as their 24 to 21 lead with two minutes to go diminished rapidly when Houghton, Irrigon for ward, sank a basket to just miss sur passing his host's score.
