UNION — What does Ford Motor Co. and Heppner High have in common?

They both have Mustangs.

The differences between them?

Well, Ford Mustangs can be found purring along the highway, while Heppner Mustangs can be found losing on the basketball court.

Nacho(s) anyone? Heppner senior slows Union

RARE OPPORTUNITY: Zack Kimball (right) and Brian Savely (left) had tough times Saturday scoring in the paint versus Heppner. With the loss, Union dropped to 3-3 (1-1 Blue Mountain). - The Observer/BRUCE MASON
UNION — That Nacho just needed extra ingredients.

The Savely Brothers? They were treated as the ground meat.

The rest of the Union roster? They were treated as the onions, salsa, guacamole, sour cream and other toppings of choice.


Tigers dominate in water

FLUID FORM: LHS swimmer Brandon Taylor set a personal record in winning the 100-meter butterfly Saturday. The Tigers boys team won the meet with a total of 127 points. The girls also won with 118 points. - The Observer/PAUL HARDER
The future is scary.

A LITTLE MOORE: Dillan Moore's 23 points weren't enough for Elgin in a 65-63 loss to Weston-McEwen Friday. - The Observer/PAUL HARDER
ELGIN — The only thing Elgin got from Friday's game was a moral victory — but those don't count in the standings.

Weston-McEwen stole the Huskies' boys basketball home conference opener 65-63.

Elgin head coach Casey Hallgarth said it was a great effort.

Badgering the opposition: Powder rolls

BADGER BEWARE: Powder Valley senior Michael Stephens races to the hoop for a lay-in Friday. Powder plays at Prairie City at 6:30 p.m. Thursday - Observer photos/BRUCE MASON
NORTH POWDER — Whoever operated the scoreboard Friday night at Powder Valley must have sore fingers this morning.

McCallum, Tuck reach tri-state semifinals
