HOUGHTON - Michigan Tech
spotted Michigan a two-goal sec-
ond period lead and then came
roaring back with three goals in
the first ten minutes of the third
period to down the Wolverines 4-3
in a WCHA game last night,,'seal-
ing the coffin on Michigan's dead
Down and Out
Thus the way was cleared for
Stowell who put the meet away.
Barden's match was sort of an
added attraction since Michigan
was almost assured of the win. A
pin by Jaklich would have meant
a tie for the meet since five points
are awarded for a fall; three for
a decision and two to each man
for a tie.
Yesterday's victory was the sec-
ond in three starts for the Wol-
verines, and the first convincing
victory. A 14-12 loss to Penn State
and a 13-12 win over Pitt were
the Wolverines' previous action.
The Wildcats had pulled a sur-
prise by defeating two of the lead-
ing Big Ten contenders, Michigan
State and Minnesota, and yester-
day's win makes Michigan's
chances in the conference meet
look even better.
The next Michigan meet will
take place after exams when the
Wolverines travel to Minnesota.

After a scoreless first period
which saw both teams checking
close and waiting for the other to
make the mistake, Michigan's
Gordon Wilkie opened the scoring
at 3:05 of the second period.
The goal was Wilkie's first of
the WCHA season and his fourth
of the year. Last year Wilkie was
voted sophomore of the year when
he scored 18 goals.
The goal came after Gary Butler
received a pass out from a face
off and fired the puck at goalie
Gary Bauman. Bauman made the
save but was hopelessly out of
position when Wilkie banged home
Twelve minutes later, Huskie
George Hill got loose and went in
all alone on goalie Bill Bieber to
tie the score. Hill maked Bieber
and slipped the puck around him.
Two minutes later Wilkie notched
his second score of the night.
Wilkie tipped Ross Morrison's
blue line slap shot over Bauman's
Butler picked up Michigan's
final goal of the evening, after
stealing the puck along the boards
to the left of the Tech net. But-
ler then skated around the boards,
broke toward the left corner of
the net, skated across the goal
mouth, and lifted the puck over
The Wolverines almost scored
again at the start of the third
period while Tech's Gary Begg was
sitting out a nelbowing penalty.,
Captain Larry Babcock skated in
alone on Bauman and had him
beat, but the shot rang off the
goal post but stayed out.
"That was a real turning point
of the game," moaned Michigan
Coach Al Renfrew. "If Larry's shot
would've gone in, we would've been
ahead 4-1, and they'd never have
But the shot didn't go in and
Butler was waved off at 3:14 for
checking in the offensive zone. It
took Tech only 13 seconds to score
after Begg returned to the ice.
Scott Watson, attempting to
center the puck from behind
Michigan's net, hit Bieber's pads
instead. The puck bounced in and'
the score was 3-2.
John Ivanitz scored the equal-
izer at 5:00 of the third period by
sheer determination. He, Begg, and
Norm Winter were stationed right
in front of Bieber. The trio kept
batting at the puck until Ivanitz
Mike Drdper scored on a fluke
goal at 9:14, to drive the last nail
into the coffin. Hill had centered
the puck and Bieber kicked out
his shot and dove for the rebound.
The puck eluded him and an-
other Michigan player dove for it,
but the puck squirted away from
the two. Finally Draper batted at
it and the puck floated through,
the air, landing on Bieber's back,
just as he wis rising to his knees.
The puck .rolled down his back
and just made it over the goal
The Wolverines almost made it
back into the game, however, when
Butler got a breakaway. Bauman
refused to be drawn out of posi-
tion and took the puck between
his pads at the right corner of I
net. That came with 23 secor
left to play.
Butler scored what seemed to
the tying goal with about ten si
onds left. He beat Bauman with
slap shot from about 15 feet o
but Michigan was called for bei
off side and the game ended.
Neither side received any ma,
injuries in the game. Defense=
