three-quarters of the rink all alone.
Eaves sailed in on MSU goalie Doug
Belland and shot it high off the glass
behind the net. Farrell was not at all
upset'with his team's inaccuracy, "At
least we got the chances," he astutely
Farrell was also unconvinced that it
was strictly a two-man effort which'up-
ended Michigan State. "In the fact that
we won two games this weekend, this
was a good team effort."
Farrell's case was strong. His goalie,
Rudy Varvari saved more than a few
shots down the stretch. Varvari made a
number of stops that preserved the
Wolverines' one-goal lead throughout
the second period.
Add the names of Tim Manning and
Brian Lundberg on defense to the list of
names of contributors to the cause. The
defensive duo did everything expected
of them in order to keep MSU off the

the Wolverines were pressuring
Belland at the other end of the ice.
DiPace slipped a pass over Varvati's
left shoulder and MSU drew first blood.
But the Wolverines came right back
just 18 seconds later to tickle the twine
and tie the game. The goal was scored
by Manning on a blazing shot from the

never trailed. Eaves made good on a
rink-long dash as he and Miller went in
on Belland with only one Spartan defen-
seman in pursuit.
The Spartans tied it for the final time
when the puck was shot past Varvari
during a pile-up after a face off. Var-
vari (and probably the 5,714 fans in the
stands), never saw the shot taken, but
saw the result.
From that point on, Michigan was
never really challenged. The

NDIANA STATE FALLS 70-67:
Women cagers edge Sycamores
By LIZ MAC
Hopefully, the rest of this season's
ictories will come a little easier than
ie first one for the women cagers.
Michigan survived a late Indiana
te surge to beat the Sycamores 70-67
esterday at Crisler Arena.
After falling behind early in the first
alf, the Sycamores pulled to within one
2,61, with 4:14 left in the second half.
fichigan followed with six unanswered
oints as Terry Schevers sank two free
irows, Katie McNamara contributed a
ucket, and Brenda Venhuizen added
that proved to be the winner with 0:55
ft in the game.
McNamara tallied the game's final
points on a pair of free throws at 0:37.
THE WOLVERINES out-hustled the
quick Indiana State team, which is just
what Coach Gloria Soluk was aiming
"We started slow in the second half -
that's when they caught up," she noted.
"Our game is running."
The Sycamores had trouble finding
the hoop through most of the contest,
except for junior guard Shelly Newell
who took game honors with 19.
MICHIGAN, meanwhile, countered
with a balanced scoring attack led by
sophomore Abby Currier, who fouled
out with 5:27 remaining, with 18. Mc-
Namara and freshwoman Diane Dietz
added 14 and Venhuizen 12.
"Abby's fouling out hurt us," Soluk
said, explaining the sudden
vaporization of the Wolverines' lead.
"She steadies the team when she's out
Sparking the blue cagers in the late
second half was freshwoman guard
,McNamara, whose fast play and sharp
defense.helped the team hang onto its
narrow lead. "We were scrappy and
just kept after 'em," she observed.
INDIANA State jumped to an early
10-5 lead, but Michigan came back with
the fast break to make it 13-10. The half-
time score had the Wolverines on top 40-
Sloppy passing marred both teams'
play. Michigan looked a little erratic on
defense except for some good looking
snuffs by 6-2 sophomore Yvette Harris.
Rebounds throughout the game went
the Wolverines' way, including a key
rebound in the closing seconds by Mc-

Lions topple Vikes
By RICK MADDOCK
Special to the Daily
PONTIAC-"Surprise, surprise, surprise," said Detroit Lions tight end
David Hill, perfectly describing the Lions' 45-14 upset over the Minnesota
Vikings yesterday at the Silverdome. The Lions have not scored this many
points since 1967, and had never scored this many against Minnesota.
The loss knocks the Vikings out of first place in the NFC Central
Division, as they are now a one-half game behind Green Bay with only a
game against Oakland left to play. The Packers play Chicago today and Los
Angeles next week.
What was billed as the Fran Tarkenton show was preempted by the Gary
Danielson show. The Lion quarterback hurled 33 passes, completing 26 for
352 yards. Five of those compeltions were for touchdowns, including three
six pointers to wide receiver Leonard Thompson. The three year signal
caller from Purdue established a new team record for touchdown passes,
along with a new Lion record for most completions in a season (184).
The Lions game plan worked just as they had hoped. Detroit coach Mon-
ty Clark explained, "The first couple of times we had the ball, we went with
all short, quick passes. Once we got them loosend up, then we started going
The Lions never trailed in the game, leading 14-0 at the end of the first
quarter, and 28-7 at halftime. They set up their first score with a fake punt on
the Vikings 42 yard line. Punter Tom Skladany set up in punt formation, but
the snap went to linebacker Tony Daykin who was in front and to the right of
Skladany. Daykin ran through left tackle for eight yards and a first down.
