DUANE DUNBAR GEORGE PEAPPLES
B.H. 64 GRAND HAVEN 41
Benton Harbor needed a mere ten minutes to
smother Grand Haven for win number eight
as the score early in the second quarter was
a staggering 34-6. At this point the Bucs gave
up the ghost and stalled in an attempt to keep the
score from being ridiculous. The starting five
again got a period-long rest which resulted in
ten Tigers breaking into the scoring column.
Walker led the parade with 22, while Lange,
whose number is l3, scored lust that many and
Yarbrough tallied 8.
B.H. 61 MUSKEGON 53
The Tigers weathered one ot their worst scares
of the season as the Big Reds, seemingly out of
the picture after being down 22-ll at the end of
the first quarter, fought to within one point of
our first-rated Tigers early in the third frame. The
ball-hawking floor play and clutch shooting of
guard George Peapples, with able assistance from
the other half of the guard position, Duane Dun-
bar, pulled the game out of the fire for Benton
Harbor's seventh straight conquest. Muskegon
triple-teamed Chet Walker and held him to his
lowest of the season, i2 points, but Peapples
and Dunbar dumped l4 each to fill in the gap
"Bruce tries one, Grand Haven watches."

B.H. 74 SOUTH BEND WASHINGTON 61
Chester Walker and his 37 points were a main-
stay in this fast-moving contest. At certain points
in the game, any person attempting to follow the
progress of the ball as it zoomed from basket to
basket on the short court, would be in dire dan-
ger of suffering a sprained neck. The game, until
the Tigers cinched the issue late in the fourth
quarter on free throws, was a coach's nightmare
as seemingly comfortable leads of TO or T2 points
had a disturbing habit of vanishing to 2 or 3.
Other high scorers for the Tigers were Dunbar
with 13 and Lange with 9.

B.H. 69 HOLLAND 54
The relativelyclose 'Final score of this tilt is not
a fair testimony to the performance of our Tigers.
Holland was never in the game and coach Farnum
saw tit to yank his entire first string at the end
of the third quarter. Although Holland managed
to hold Walker to 17 points the balanced scoring
of the rest of the team easily overcame this diffi-
culty. Dunbar sank l4, Lange ll, Yarbrough 9,
and Peapples 8.

B.H. 5l MUSKEGON HEIGHTS 47
This Friday night was a time of sweet revenge for the Tigers and their fans.
After one of the most hotly contested games in the history of the Colfax gym, our
number one rated Bengals emerged victors over defending state champion Heights,
thus avenging, quite satisfactorily, three straight losses to the up-state Tigers last
season, one of which came in the state semi-finals. Harbor never trailed all through
the game, although the lead exceeded 6 points only once. Midway through the
fourth quarter, after a barrage of shots during which neither team was able to buy
a basket, our Tigers zoomed to an eight point lead, only to see it shrink to one a
minute later. The issue was very much in doubt until the last seconds when George
Peapples sunk four straight points to cinch the game. Chester Walker was high man
for B.H.H.S. with l5, but balanced scoring was the order of the night as Ron
Lange swished 14, George ll, and Duane Dunbar 9.
