The initial game was with a strong and favored Niles five, but the Harborites put up a good fighting game and came out on the long end of a 28 to 24 score. Whitright's scoring of 15 points and Skuda's guarding of Holmes, Niles' tall center, featured the Tiger attack. The following week Benton Harbor took an easy victory from Dowagiac 31 to 17. Elsner and Skuda, scoring 14 points between them, paced the Tigers. The orange and black five won its third straight game of the season and its first conference victory by defeating Muskegon Heights 25 to 18. Skuda's four field goals led the Harbor attack. Benton Harbor's inability to score in overtime resulted in a 25-20 downfall at the hands of Muskegon. It was a tough game for the Tigers to lose. Uncorking a second half offense that bewildered Grand Haven, Benton Harbor took a 28 to 25 victory. It was an inspiring comeback after the defeat at the hands of Muskegon. Whitright's 11 points from all angles of the floor placed Benton Harbor in the fore in the second half. The Tigers avenged a gridiron defeat by handing St. joseph a 36 to 19 licking. It was Ben- ton Harbor's game from start to Hnish as the Tigers handily outclassed and outplayed St. joseph. The game proved to be a field night for Elsner and Skuda. The night after the St. Joseph game Benton Harbor engaged Holland in a battle, but in the second half the Tigers felt the effects of the night before and could not cope with the whirlwind attack of Holland, led by their giant center, Van Dort. Holland won 34 to 27. After being snowed under by Kalamazoo 27 to 12, Benton Harbor showed a characteristic determination and defeated Muskegon Heights 32 to 21. Playing two aggressive games Benton Harbor defeated both Muskegon and Grand Haven. In the return tilt with St. joseph, the game was much closer than the Hrst, but Benton Harbor again showed the superiority of the two and defeated St. Joseph 26 to 22. Holland defeated Benton Harbor 25 to 22 and put the Tigers out of the conference race. Benton Harbor closed the season with a brilliant win over Kalamazoo and it also closed a very successful season for Coach Perigo's orange and black men. All Conference Selections Skuda G Elsner F

MU SKEGON HTS BENTON HARBOR Total Pts. BENTON HARBOR WON 2 BENTON HARBOR LOST 7 With a patched lineu and Lady Luck playing against them in most of their games, our 1957 edition of the B.H.H.S. football team finished the season with a not too im ressive record. On the basis of games won and lost the season was almost a total loss, but the fgllowers of the Orange and Black need not fear that the 1957 Tigers were a disgrace to the proud records of former B. H. teams. Although playing under severe handicaps they never lost heart. They were named by many critics as the scrappiest, fighten'est team in the conference. True, they lost the majority of their lgirmes, but they went down lighting to the end in every one, never giving up until that last whistle ew. As an example of the sort of breaks our team got, we shall witness the Grand Haven game. Early in the game we had the ball on the Grand Haven 1 yard line. On the next play we went over but fumbled, and Grand Haven recovered. Result, no touchdown. In the third quarter our hardest blow of the season hit us, Phil Skuda, our star punter, was injured and had to leave the game. Skuda was out for the rest of the season. As a result we had no experienced punter. Grand Haven took advantage, blocked one of our punts, and went over for a score. Needless to say, we lost that game. The opening game of the season played in mud and rain saw the Tigers defeat Niles 6 to 0, but the following week St. Augustine, termed by sports writers as one of the state's strongest teams, tamed the Tigers and defeated them 14 to 0. On a lateral, Skuda to Reid, Reid galloped 70 yards to a touchdown against Hobart, an Indiana school. Skuda's drop kick for the extra point was good, and the Tigers defeated Hobart 7 to O. Coach Bill Moss's Tigers rose to what was probably their highest peak during the season even though they were defeated 19 to 0 at the hands of Muskegon. The Tigers played brilliant foot- ball, outgaining and outcharging the Muskies, but Mukegon's alertness spelled victory for them. To add insult to injury we lost to our friends from across the river by a score of 3 to 0 on Carver's field goal. That was the first time St. joseph had beaten us in 19 years. Due to the fact that the Tigers were riddled with injuries, they dropped their remaining three games tof Holland, Muskegon Hts., and Kalamazoo, but in each case they went down fighting. "B" FOOTBALL TEAM Ninteen letters were awarded by Coach Laws to the second team this year. This was a smaller number than usual since six promotions were made to the Varsity Squad during the season. The remaining material was only of fair calibre and made a much less impressive seasonal record than the "Tiger Cubs" of the last few years. Although the Cubs faced a somewhat tougher schedule this year in meeting some newcomers outside of our own league, such as "The South Bend Central Cubs," St. Augustine of Kalamazoo, and Buchanan, they were able to hold their opponents to a margin of one touchdown. Their best games were played against St. john of Benton Harbor, Buchanan, South Bend Central, and St. Augustine. Some outstanding performances were turned in by Yops and Baldwin in their passing attack, by Mitchell in directing play, by Melvin Brown both as a lineman and later as a full-back, and by Bedunah, Wegner, Kennedy and Allis as capable linemen, All Conference Selections-First Team-Ireland.

The team won six games and lost eight which was considered a good showing. ln Radke, Clements. and Kinas, Coach Farnum developed three small but speedy players, who will be capable of hlling first team berths next season. Radke is a very shifty forward, able to get around any guard, and Kinas and Clements are two good ball handling guards. Others who will probably see service next year are: Griese and Marshall, centersg Peters, Henke, and Arlo Gassner. forwards: and Reid, Hosner, and Arno Gassner, guards. Radke led the team in scoring with a total of 76 points, followed closely by Peters and Kinas. The team as a whole made 323 points to its opponents 355 points.
