When the pressure was finally
over, Michigan hockey coach Al
Renfrew breathed out the phrase
"outstanding 'effort" to describe
his team's thrilling 2-1 victory
over first place North Dakota last'
It was time to relax after a fren-
zied finish, and among those jo-
kking around in the winning locker
room was netminder Jim Keough.
"Why do we always play so
great against the great teams, and
so lousy against the lousy teams?"
But Keough had good reason to
joke'-his brilliant, goaltending was

three minutes he had performed
The last few moments had in-
deed been action-packed. In a
photo finish, the WCHA's top two
teams had traded goals without
any effect on the outcome.

Marttila skated around a Nodak

Big Ten Competition

The future success of an athletic
team can be somewhat determined
by the quality of its members-to-
The Michigan swimming team is
no exception, as its chances next
year will depend largely on the
performance of the sophomores,
this year's freshmen. Just how
good they are will be revealed
this afternoon in Matt Mann Pool
The occasion is the first Big Ten
freshmen meet and the competi-
tors include the perennial confer-
fence leaders: Michigan, Michigan
State, Indiana, and Ohio State.
It is the consensus among the
Michigan swimming coaches , that
most of this afternoon's competi-
tion will be of "varsity caliber."

Then the Nodaks pulled Curran
and kept the pressure on Keough
for the final two and a half min-

puck off the boards and fired the
puck at the open Dakota net, only
to hit the post.

coach Bill Selman had no excuses
for the outcome. "It was exactly
the kind of game it should have
been-a tremendous battle.
"We had plenty of opportunities,
but we just couldn't cash in . .. we
played to them and they stopped
us. It was a very typical game for
us-we created lots of scoring
chances, but failed to get the puck
in the net. Michigan played a
great defensive game."
Renfrew admitted that his
squad concentrated on defense.
"We were trying to keep up to their
wings-we knew they were fast
slaters. Our defensemenrcontin-
ually dropped back fast from the
points of their blueline to protect
against the fast break."
Time and again, Bill Lord, Paul
Domm and cohorts kicked away
screaming shots off the Nodak
sticks, and a large percentage of
the losers' shots never reached
Keough by virtue of being blocked
by a Wolverine blueliner.
"Sometimes it seemedi as if they
weren't really blocking them, we
were simply shooting the puck
straight into their pads," remark-
Despitethe lack of scoring, there
were many tense moments at each
end of the ice. After the opening
face-off, North Dakota kept the
puck in the Michigan zone for the
first few minutes of play.
