'Chet shoots as the contest tightens." "Click, click
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.

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. 63 NILES 45
Mickey Yarbrough scored over 20 points for the
first tirne in his varsity career to pace the Orange
and Black squad to a well-earned victory over the
Vikings of Niles. Tiger domination of the back-
boards was a main feature in this tilt as they took
78 shots-27 more than Niles could get away.
Walker was held to only 17 points and Ron Lange
swished 1 i.
"Your turn, Chet."
"George lays in two."
B.H. 54 HOLLAND 44
After their prestige-filled conquest of Muskegon
Heights, our high-flying Tigers had difficulty get-
ting their feet back on the ground as they eased
past the Dutchmen by IO points. Ron Lange kept
Harbor in the game in the first half, scoring I4 of
his 16 points. Chet Walker took over in the sec-
ond half, sinking a total of 17 after a meager 5-
point first half.
