Matmen Turn Back Spartans

Last night the Michigan wrest-
lers played two ends against the
middle and barely got away with
it. Michigan controlled the two
ends and Michigan State dominat-
ed the middle.
When Coach Cliff Keen arrived,
he found that State had shifted
the first four men in their lineup
down by one weight. The sudden
switch by Michigan State coach
Grady Peninger had telling re-
sults on the first match.
Evidently, Peninger underesti-
mated Michigan's Bob Fehrs when
he scheduled Don Behm to battle
him at 123 pounds. Behm is regu-
larly a 130 pounder. Fehrs lost no
time in attacking the weakened
Michigan State wrestler. With the
score and match a close one, both
wrestlers began to fight harder.
Fehrs manipulated his adversary
into a fall at 5:48 of the match
and then, probably due to his
rapid loss of weight, Behm fainted.
Coach Peninger said his wrestler
"didn't know what had gone on.
When Behm woke up on the mat,
he asked me ,what happened. I
told him he had been pinned and
all he could say was 'Oh, no'!"

Dave Dozeman added three more
points to the team total the hard
way when he beat State's Dale
Anderson in the 130 pound cate-
gory, 12-9. The highly partisan
Spartan crowd was not about to
let Dozeman walk away easily as
they drilled his ears with noise..
In the process of winning, Doze-
man suffered a bloody nose.
Such a wild match as-Dozeman's
was difficult to match. Bill Johan-
nesen and Dale Carr, wrestling to
a 1-1 tie, didn't try. It was the
first match Michigan didn't win,
but the team score still stood a
lopsided 10-2 in favor of the Wol-
verines, and any hopes for a Mich-
igan State victory were fading
into the wind. With Cal Jenkins
following with a 4-0 victory over
Dave Campbell in the 147-pound
class all MSU aspirations were
practically swept away.
At this time in the game some-
one must have said a prayer, and
that prayer was answered. Un-
fortunately, for the Spartans the
prayer wasn't strong enough to
serve up a victory, although it
did have everyone in the arena
on pins and needles for the rest
of the meet.

Somehow-call it skill, call it
luck-the Spartans gave the game
a 180-degree turn and started their
comeback. It began when Dick
Cook, wrestling a recovered Jim
Kamman in the 157-pound cate-
gory, took the contest 6-5. After
the meet even Coach Peninger ad-
mitted "it was evident that Kam-

to keep most of the pressure on

Bouncing Back
Trailing 52.4-52 after the first
two events, Michigan rebounded
on the trampoline. With perennial
victor Wayne Miller posting a 9.5
(tied for high in the meet),. the
Wolverines grabbed the lead by a
.05 margin. But State didn't stand
for 'that.
With all the finesse of a Las
Vegas blackjack dealer, the State
high bar team racked up totals of
9.15, 9.4, 9.45, and 9.5, spearheaded'
by Thor, Curzi, and muscle beach
product Ed Gunny.
Gunny, a sophomore and dis-
planted Los Angeleno, released his
iron grip on the horizontal pole
while passing over, executed a
flawless flip and, in stride, grab-
bed the bar on the way down.
Time and again, the Spartan
twisters performed such showy,

Fuller, along with bouncer Miller,

While the Wolverine parallel bar
team hit, as a whole, nearly two
full points below their average,
the Spartans were led by All-
American Curzi.
It was the smiling Slovak, much
upstaged by soph Gunny on the
high bar, that registered a meet-:

Big Ten Next
Thusly, with State holding a
one-game (two points) edge over
the Blue, with the regular season
schedule already over, the focus
falls on next week's conference
m e et in Bloomington. There,
Michigan must finish one place
ahead of the Spartans in order to
gain their sixth straight share of
the conference championships.
And, judging from yesterday's
display by Curzi, Gunny, and 'Thor
(who, incidentally, averaged over
9.0 in six events), Loken and his
charges should hope 'that they can
finish higher than first.
