Wolverines Roll to Fourth
Consecutive WCHA Victory

-.,_ , _ ._ ,. . _ _ . . ._ - - - s

"Michigan skates as well as any'
team in the league, and overall
they're as good as anybody. Their
defense was exceptional."
So says Colorado hockey coach
Bob Johnson, and he ought to
know. His Colorado Tigers had
just come off the ice last night
with a 4-2 loss to the Wolverines.
Last night's win moved the Wol-
verines into solid possession of
second place in the WCHA with
a 4-1 mark, while the Tigers
dropped to 4-3.
Colorado will get its chance to
jump back into contention tonight
at the Coliseum, with the faceofft
scheduled for 8:00.
"You can't play ten minutes of
hockey and expect to win in this
league. We just weren't getting
the second chances. Their goalie
(Michigan soph Harold Herman)
played real well, even though we
didn't really test him until the
last few minutes."
Battle of Netminders
It started out as a battle of
goalies, and continued that way
throughout the 60 minutes.
The first period saw shots going
both ways, but Colorado's Bill
Howard, and Herman rose to the
occasion 16 and eight times re-
spectively. Many of the saves were
in the spectacular category, and
the first =20 minutes were score-
Wolverine. Bill Lord broke the
spell at 2:51 of the middle stanza,
taking a pass back from a goal
mouth scramble, and sending a
slap shot right back through the
pile-up and into the net, giving
Michigan a lead that it didn't lose.
Dean Lucier, Mel Wakabayashi,
and Bob Baird teamed up to open
a two .goal 'M' spread a minute
later. "Waka" took a Lucier pass
and streaked down the left side,
passing across the ice to Baird in
front of the net. Baird had no
trouble lifting a soft shot over
Howard for his tenth (and team
leading) tally of the year.
Credit Defense
Much of the credit for the low
scoring, and relatively penalty-
free game, was given to the Mich-
igan defense, both by Johnson and
by Michigan coach Al Renfrew,
who commented, "The defense
played well, but it was anybody's
game up until the end. We were
spotty. I just hope we can get the
breaks tomorrow night, because
they're a good club."
Herman's shutout bid was ruin-
ed at 11:29 of the last period, af-
ter Mark Thompson had scored
what proved to be the winner at
9:40. Ron Ullyot skated in on
Howard and took a hard shot,
which the Colorado netminder
stopped waist high, only to see
Thompson ram the rebound past
him into the open side.
Herman, who has stopped wear-
ing a mask like other WCHA
goalies wear because "it interfered
with my vision, especially on
scrambles at my feet," saw his 51
minute unscored-on streak snap-
ped out of just such a scramble.
'Bounced Out'
"It came off a sticl and into
my glove. Then it bounced out,
and he (Colorado's Chuck Reink-
ing) got the rebound. I gave it to
The second goal, which pulled
the Tigers to within one, came on
"a good shot over my shoulder,"
by CC's Doug Clark, who had
taken a rinkwide pass from Reink-
ing at the 16 minute mark.
The Wolverines iced the game
at 17:46, but not before several
saves by Herman kept the Wol-
verine advantage.
Bruce Koviak, playing off his
usual Detroit line, broke in on
Howard alone, and was tripped
from behind, a delayed penalty
was being signaled, but while lay-
ing flat on the ice, Koviak pushed
the puck under Howard with his
stick, and then followed it into
the net with a slide that Maury
Wills would have been proud of.

Largest Crowd
The largest home crowd of the
season for Michigan, 1890, saw
the Wolverines outshoot their op-
ponents, as they have been doing
all year, 47 to 28, and they saw
excellent goaltending by both
Howard and Herman.
Johnson, who found it tough to

play without his two top scorers,
Captain D a v e Peterson (bad
shoulder) and John Genz (appen-
dicitis), wasn't trying to find an
alibi. "Their defense kept us from
getting the second shots. You
can't win in this league on one
shot. You have to get the rebounds
and scrambles. Michigan skates
well, and comes out of their zone
real quick. It's an even league,
and Michigan's got as good a
chance as anybody. They, and
their goalie, are as good as any
we've seen so far."

Meet 'Cats


"It's not often that two good
teams compete in a dual meet,
but this is one of those times,"
said swimming Coach Gus Stager
yesterday. Of course, he was re-
ferring to today's dual meet with
Since 1961, Michigan has fin-
ished runner-up to the Hoosiers
every season. Last year, however,
they snapped Indiana's 47 vic-
tory dual meet string with a 70-
53 victory.
At 3 p.m. today, Matt Mann
Pool will be flooded with such
illustrious stars as Olympians Carl
Robie and Bill Farley of Michigan,
and Kevin Berry, Ken Sitzberger,
and Tom Tretheway of Indiana,
not to mention Big Ten and NCAA
winners. However, "it is doubt-
ful that too many records will
be broken today," added Stager.
Too Early
One reason is that it is too
early in the season for the swim-
mers to be at peak performance.
Another has to do with psychol-
ogy: both teams want to win
the meet, not break records, and
they will rely on strategy and
timing rather than speed alone.
Michigan's medley relay team,
which set a varsity record last
year, will probably include Rees
Orland, Paul Scheerer, Ken Wie-
beck and Rich Walls, swinming
backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly
and freestyle in that order.
Against them for Indiana will be
Pete ,Hammer, Tom Tretheway,
Kevin Berry, and Dick Gilbert.
Rugged Condition
The competition will be rough.
As Hoosier Coach Jim "Doc"
Councilman puts it, "We'll have
more individual stars on this team
and also more proven depth in
some positions 'than we did last
Carl Robie and Bill Farley will

both the Michigan' pool and var-
sity records in this event last
year with a 10:22.5 and Robie,
whose main specialty is the but-
terfly, set records in the butter-
fly, individual medley, freestyle,
and freestyle relay. Another rec-
ord setter, Bob Hoag, will be an
important factor.

ley and Paul Groft won the 200-
and 50-yard freestyle events, re-

same meet. Besides these two,
