The chameleon-like Michigan
cagers revealed a more likeable TI
side in their 86-85 win over the
Iowa Hawkeyes Saturday.

eleven games of the season, the HOCKEY-Noj

Michigan has been a home-
breaker to Iowa for the last two
years. The Wolverines have brok-
en down the Hawks for their only
two homecourt losses in the two
seasons-both times killing t h e
Hawks' title hopes.
Last year in the final Big Ten
game of the season, when Iowa led
the conference with a one game
advantage, Michigan downed the
Hawkeyes 71-70 to force a play-
off with Ohio State. Ohio State
won the game and the title.
Orr tried to explain the differ-
ence in the team's playing that
resulted in the Iowa win. "It was
essential that we rebound well in
order to beat them. We did a
good job even though we only had
one more rebound than they did.
"I think that in the last thirty
seconds it came down to the team
that had the most character. Max-
ey's steal and Sullivan's rebound,
in the last few seconds proved
that we have that character."

The Michigan icers traveled to
frustrating Minnesota this week-
end, and could do no better than
gain a split in the two game ser-
ies. The Wolverines played some
fine hockey, but fell victim to
Bill Klatt and the Gophers on
Friday, 4-3. But Brian Slack's two
goals paced Michigan as it gamed
revenge with a 4-2 Saturday night
The turning point in the first
clash came just 58 seconds into
the first period as Klatt scored
his first goal. From that point
the Wolverines were forced to play
come-from-behind hockey, but
never mustered the sauce to

and recapture the lead. Michigan
goalie Jim KeoughI made a fan-
tastic 'save; but the puck bounced
off his face and sat in front of
the open net. Keough was shaken,
and Rick Yurich rushed in and
took advantage of the situation,
tapping the puck home'for Min-
nesota's second marker. "It was a
big break in the game," noted
Michigan mentor Al Renfrew, "but
there was nothing we could do."
Dave Perrin scored twice, his
second goal bringing Michigan' to
within one, 4-3. However, the last
eight minutes of the game saw
no more scoring, though a Mich-
igan shot bounced off the post
with just nine seconds remaining.
"It was a tough loss," commented
Renfrew, "but a well"' played
Michigan had several deficits
to overcome. But Minnesota, par-
ticularly noted for their speed, al-
so houses the biggest rink in the
WCHA. The Wolverines were
forced to 'play Saturday's contest
without the help of Paul Gamsby,
who came to blows with a Min-
nesota player late in Friday's
game. "Nevertheless," explained
Renfrew, "the squad was mentally,
'up' for the game and rose to the
After two periods of evenly
played hockey the Gophers held
a 2-1 advantage. Then the Wol-
verines came to life, and played
their best period of the weekend,
led by Brian Slack's two tallies.
There was much more intensity
in Saturday's come-from-behind
win, but the big difference had to
be the fact that the breaks went
to Michigan. Keough played an-
other outstanding game, matching
Friday night's total of 34 saves.
"The squad is dedicated and
have displayed courage in recent
games," pointed. out Renfrew. "It's
the team that gets the breaks
that will win the game." Renfrew
was particularly referring to, the
previous Saturday's game at Mich-
igan Tech as well as this series.
The Wolverines outplayed Tech
at their rink, but the breaks went
the wrong way. The winning goal
came on a heavily screened
shot which was ;deflected off
Keough's stick and narr
into the net.
