PAGE SIX THE MICHIGAN DAILY SUNDAY, JANUARY 15, 1967
By DOUG HELLER
If any Michigan Hockey enthu-
siast expected a repetition yester-
day of Friday's obliteration of
Minnesota, they were in for one
whale of a surprise.
Michigan squeezed by in a 5-4
decision that could easily have
gone the other way, a statement
attested to by goalie Harold Her-
man, who said that he felt "lucky
to win." In fact, the tenacity of
a supposedly "weak" Minnnesota
team (they have only one league
win), was remarkable, especially
after Friday's 10-5 shellacking.
That Minesota was an entirely
different team can be easily be
shown how the winning goal was
after a 46-second blitzkrieg by
Michigan in front of the Minne-
sota net during the first minute,
it didn't seem as if there were
woing to be any at all. Both
goalies came up with fine saves
when necessary, and most of the
play centered around center ice,
with Minnesota having a slight
The quiet was broken at 2:28
of the second period, when Bill
Lord attempted a cross wing pass,
apparently aimed at Captain Mike
Marttila. But it only nicked Mike,
and brother Lee got it, neatly

ly beat goalie Roussopolous.
The goal was quickly followed
by one by Bob Baird, from a

Michigan's wrestlers made it
look easy yesterday as they pasted
a young Northwestern squad with
a 32-2 decision in the confines of
Yost Field House.
Coach Cliff Keen's grapplers
beat the young Wildcats for the
40th time in 42 meetings with

a 4-4 draw. Bay commented that
"there was a world of difference in
the way he (Henson) wrestled to-
day after last week."s
From here on, Northwestern
could not even muster a point as
the Michigan matmen were in
complete control. Gordon Weeks,1
in the 137-pound class, led his

A closely forechecking Dean The Gophers countered on a shot
Lucier stole the puck, and raced
up left wing until he was even
with the net. He fired right at the
legs of defenseman Jerry Trooien,
and thedpuck hit the latter's stick,
and bounced at a 90 degrees angle
through the legs of goalie Pete
Lucier refused to take credit forE
the surprising game clincher, say-
ing that it was intended as more
or less of a desperation centering
pass to avoid a defenseman's
check. "I fired it as hard as I
could, because I knew that (for-
ward) Bob Baird was supposed to
be somewhere in the area," he
said afterwards. "I turned around
to see it go in."

until Minnesota's Bill Klatt on a
,pass from Chuck Norby cleanly
ibeat goalie Herman with just 33
,seconds left. And in the last few
'moments, Minnesota was clustered
'around the Michigan net again.
The contest itself can best be
described as three different trends,
each dominating a period. The
first frame had no scoring and,

as Pat Dufour came right back

Rougher in Third
The third period was much
rougher and included two small
free-for-alls around the Minne-
sota net. Lucier started the scor-
ing with his first unassisted mark-
er, a steal at left wing, a dash
to the right and a clean score at

Michigan would win 19-17. North-
western not only did not manage
a pin, it couldn't even get a point
in the last three matches.
Wayne Hansen. who was above
his normal weight class, wrestled
the most interesting match of the
day with Wildcat Rich Ruben.
Ruben was leading 3-0 in the sec-
ond period when he broke his
baby finger. Instead of forfeiting,
giving the Wolverines five more
points, he courageouslydecided
to continue after having his finger
reset and taped.
Ruben slowly lost his lead to
Hansen and was losing 6-5 with
about 30 seconds to go when he
gained two points for a take-
down and was ahead by one when
the buzzer sounded ending the
match. After conferring with the
judges table though, referee Iggy
Konrad awarded the match to
Hansen, 8-7, giving the grappler
two points for riding time.
