Matmen Stop Iowa, 14-11,
For Seventh Straight Win'


Michigan Hockey Team Drops Second Weekend Gan
Seven-Goal SecondPeriod Wraps Up Tech Triumph

Associate Sports Editor
A standing-room crowd of 1,000
cheered Michigan's wrestling team
to an important 14-11 victory over
Iowa's stronggboys in the I-M gym-
nasium last night.
It was the Wolverines' seventh
straight dual-meet triumph in, a
season marred only by an open-
ing 19-12 loss at Penn State.
Last night's result strengthened
Michigan's bid for the Big Ten
championship, since Iowa ranks
along with Michigan State and
defending titlist Minnesota among
the Wolverines' strongest com-
petitors this year.
Three Stay Unbeaten
Victories by the undefeated trio
of Mike Hoyles, Dennis Fitzgerald,
and Karl Fink again were in-
strumental in the Wolverine vic-
tory. A decision win by Wilfried
Hildebrandt and a draw by Dick
Fronczak provided the other points
for Coach Cliff Keen's grapplers.
They won despite the lineup-
altering tactics of Iowa coach
Dave McCuskey. He put new faces
at 123 and heavyweight, moved
his heavyweight to 177, and again
switched his middle-weight men.
If any of last night's eight
matches can be singled out as the
"key" win, it was Fink's 3-2 tri-
umph at 177 pounds over erst-
while Hawkeye heavyweight Gor-
don Trapp. Trapp, runnerup in
the unlimited class in last year's
Big Ten meet, was moved down a
weight when football player Sher-
win Thorson recently Joined the
Gains Early Takedown
Fink took down Trapp early in
the first period, and Trapp es-
caped seconds later. This 2-1 mar-
gin held throughout the period,
and the contestants exchanged
escapes in the second and third for
the only other points.
The defensive wrestling of Fink
and Trapp was some of the best
seen in a Michigan meet this sea-
Fink's victory gave Michigan a
14-8 lead, and this margin was
sufficiently large to guarantee a
Michigan victory despite what
happened in the heavyweight
II an action-filled bout, Thor-
son outpointed Michigan's Fred
0ln, 8-5, in what might be a pre-
view of how things will go in the
Big Ten meet next month in the
heavyweight division.
Fitzgerald Wins, 8-1
Fitzgerald outwitted Sydney
Walston, 8-1, in the 167-pound
showdown, to set up Fink's deci-
sive win. The first period was
scoreless, but from there on Fitz-
gerald steadily built up his lead
to its final margin.

Hoyles scored four points in the'
first 15 seconds of the third period'
to break a 2-2 deadlock and give
him a 7-2 win over Iowa 123-4
pound sophomore Morris Barnhill.
Hoyles got an escape, takedown,
and predicament in his quick
Hildebrandt looked very good in
posting a solid 5-2 win over soph
Dennis Lucey at 137. Fronczak
staved off veteran Joe Mullins'
frantic leg-dives for a 2-2 draw
at 157.
Riding-Time Decisive
Iowa took two riding-time deci-
sion victories. Soph John Kelly
nosed out Wolverine Ambi Wil-
banks, 2-1, at 130, and Del Ross-
berg edged Jim Blaker, 3-2, at 147.
The meet was Michigan's last
home appearance of the season
until the Conference affair here
March 4-5. The magnitude of last
night's crowd exceeded estimates,
and as a result 200 spectators were
forced to stand or sit in folding

ON TOP-Iowa's Delbert Rossberg has the advantage on Michi-
gan's Jim Blaker in their 147-lb. match last night. Rossberg was
awarded a 3-2 decision on the basis of riding time. The Wol-
verines defeated Iowa 14-11.

Hawke yes Defeat Gymnasts

Special to The Daily
HOUGHTON -- There is a sign
just outside of Houghton that
reads: "Enter the Copper Country.
You are breathing the freshest,
most vitalizing air on earth."
But Michigan's hockey players
must have held their collective
breath as they passed through.
Their attack was anything but
vital again yesterday afternoon as
they were blasted for the second
day by Michigan Tech, 9-4.
Just as in Friday's game, one
big period made the difference as
the Huskies ripped the slumping
Wolverines apart for seven goals
in the second period. It was the
same story as the previous night
when Michigan carried a lead into
the late stages of the game, only
to see their hopes of salvaging a
win go out the window when
Tech's production line started
zeroing in on the net.
Wolverines Hustle
The only change in the script
from the opener of the series was
provided by the Wolverine hustling
which accounted for three more
Michigan goals than in the first
contest. But although Michigan
didn't find itself as completely out-
classed as before, and in fact the
defense did a somewhat better
job, the Tech Huskies found a
chink in goalie Jim Coyle's armor
and took advantage of it.
Four times the sharpshooting
Tech squad fired long angle shots
into the upper corner of the Mich-
igan net and these four markers
changed the complexion of the
Michigan Seeks Revenge
The revenge-seeking Wolverines
couldn't have started out much
faster. The first face-off of the
game was controlled by Steve
Bochen who fired the puck into
the Tech zone. And at the :18
mark, Bochen took a pass from
Gary Mattson in front of the
Husky net and flipped a back-

handed screen shot past startled-
George Cuculick.
Play remained even throughout
the rest of the period as both
teamscounted once more. Tech
knotted the score at 6:43, as they
took advantage of a Michigan pen-
alty to power the puck past Coyle.
Gerald Fabbro did the honors on
Paul Coppo's rebound.
Mattson, the leading Wolverine
scorer of the day with two goals
and an assist, put Michigan out in
front for the last time late in the
period when he converted Bob
White's rebound on a Wolverine
power play.
Capacity Crowd on Hand
The capacity crowd of 2,100 fans
had been biding their time and
they had their chance to roar in
the second stanza as the roof fell
in on the Wolverines. Twelve min-
utes after Michigan had skated on
the ice with a 2-1 lead, Tech had
batted in six goals for a comfort-
able 7-2 margin.
Coppo slapped one in from the
point to tie the score at 2-2; Tom
Burke broke the tie 52 seconds
later as he -ripped a 20-footer past
Coyle; Coppo fired again from the

side to make it 4-2; then it was
Burke again, taking a pass from
little Louie Angotti and driving it
home for the fifth Tech goal;
Kosiancic got into the act at 11:08,
firing from the point on a power
play-score: 6-2; a minute and
three second later Fabbro tallied
on a power play to bring the score
to 7-2.
Finally the Wolverines hit the
scoring column again as Gerry
Kolb brought the puck into the
Tech defensive zone to have Red
Berenson backhand one past Cucu-
lick at 14:43.
Another goal for each team, one
by Jerry Sullivan for Tech and
Mattson's second of the day on a
good rush by the first line, brought
the period's total of goals to nine.
The Huskies were content to
play a defensive game in the final
frame, although they added insult
to injury by tallying a last marker
when Angotti swept down the left
boards and passed to Sullivan who
scored from in close. Angotti was
the Tech playmaker, as he regis-
tered four assists for his day's

Nothing clicked for the Michi-
gan gymnasts last night as they
fell to Iowa's unbeaten Hawkeyes,
63% 474, before an overflow
crowd in the I-M gymnasium.
The Hawkeyes thus extended
their unbeaten string to eight
meets, although they were tied
Friday by Michigan State. Iowa
simply put the pressure on the
Wolverines from the very start last
night and never let up, while the
hosts had several spotty perform-'
Four Iowa men won five of the
seven firsts, with Captain Bill
Buck capturing two. Wolf Dozauer
on the still rings, and Al Stall on
the high bar scored Michigan's
only two first-place wins.
Buck Top Scorers
Buck was the night's high scorer
with 15 points, and teammate
Marshall Claus was -close behind
with 13. They were followed by
Stall with 12.
"The pressure was tremendous
on our kids when Iowa jumped off
to that early lead after only two
events," said Coach Newt Loken,
disappointed with the rather con-
vincing outcome.
"The boys just crumpled a
little," he continued, "but Rich
Montpetit had a bad night, rare
for him, and that was the differ-
ence. Give him his usual 18 or so
points and the meet would have
oeen a different story. We'll have
another chance at them in the Big
Ten Championships."
Osterland Loses Timing
After taking a close third in
Free Exercise, Montpetit had a bad
break for himself and the team
when he slipped off the side horse
early in his routine. This hap-
pened right after Wolverine re-
bound tumbling ace Tom Oster-
land lost his timing, enabling Iowa
to take a sudden and unexpected
nine-point lead, which they stead-
ily lengthened.
The Wolverines then were
cheered by Stall's clutch perform-
ance in the High Bar, but fell
back again 'as Buck, and NCAA
champion, nipped Montpetit in the
parallel bars.
Stall's high bar routine in-
cluded a double flyaway dismount,

one of the night's highlights for
the jampacked crowd. Tumblers
Jim Brown of Michigan and Roger
Gedney of Iowa also provided a
thrill for the fans in the last event
after the meet had been decided.
Two Double Somersaults
Both "threw" double backward
somersaults, an exceedingly diffi-
cult stunt which was the first one
for Brown in dual meet competi-
tion this year. However, Gedney
edged him by a half-point.
The loss pushed Michigan's dual
meet record to 6-3, with all three
defeats coming at the hands of
strong Big Ten teams, the other
two being Illinois and Minnesota.
Loken called Iowa the strongest

team Michigan has met so far, but
added that Michigan State must
be in the same class since the
Spartans held Iowa to a tie.
Last night's meet started late
because of confusion following the
long wrestling meet which may or
may not have affected the out-
come. As it was, the Hawkeyes had
to hurry to catch the train back
to Iowa City.
Loken was visibly upset by the
result, but knew that if his team
had come through with a top per-
formance things would have been
different. He and his team are
just waiting for that next chance,
but meets with Wisconsin and
MSU come first.
