ALCONS COMING OFF FINEST SEASON:
Blue face BGSU in ice opener
4 By DAN PERRIN
The seemingly endless baseball
season is finally over and now it's time
for cold weather sports, namely
hockey. The 1978-79 seasoj opens
tonight for the Michigan hockey team
as they face off against the Bowling
Green State University (Ohio) Falcons
at Yost Ice Arena. While the Blue icers
have consistently been the favorite in
,past series with Bowling Green, this
year is a different story.
Michigan finished ninth in the 10-
team Western Collegiate Hockey
Association (WCHA) last season with a
15-20-1 overall record, failing to make
the conference playoffs.
.ON THE OTHER end of the rink,the
Falcons are coming off the finest
season in the team's 10-year history.
Following a pair of losses to the
Wolverines in last year's opening
series, coach Ron Mason , nd his squad
skated to a 31-8 overall record and cap-
tured the Central Collegiate Hockey
Association (CCHA) crown. The
Ohioans sailed to a third-place finish in
the NCAA Championships, the first
time ever a CCHA school has finished in
the top four in the country. -
"Finishing third was a great thrill for
us," said Coach Mason. "It gave a lot of
credibility to the league and has helped
the school quite a bit."
LEADING THE way for the Falcons
this year is a group of seniors including,
all-American defenseman Ken Morrow,
high scoring John Markell and captain
Morrow; the first all-American at
Bowling Green, scored 26 points (eight
goals, 18 assists) as a junior and is
counted on to lead the defense once-
Markell (33 goals - 28 assists - 61
points), CCHA Co-Player of the Year,
and Titanic (15-20-35) return to bolster
an offense that has lost three outstan-
ding forwards to graduation. The
departed include Mike Hartman, who
led the team in goals while playing only
half the season, and Canadians Byron
Shutt and Dave Easton. The graduated
trio combined for 128 points.
COUNTERING the Falcon attack for
the dekers will be three solid front lines
consisting of seven veterans and two
freshmen. Junior Dan Lerg (21-28-49),
is the top returning scorer and is
flanked by senior captain Mark Miller
(19-14-33) and third-year man Doug
A pair of talented newcomers, Terry
Cullen and Murray Eaves, will center

Cullen will be especially fired up for
the Bowling Green series since two

two pretty tough hockey players."
Falcon coach Mason believes the
series will be good for both teams.

remarked the coach. "We'll try to get

Pistons trade Ford
By The Associated Press
BOSTON-The Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association
moved to bolster their defense yesterday, acquiring veteran guard Chris'
Ford from the Detroit Pistons for guard Earl Tatum.
Ford, a 6-foot-6 ironman who has played in 267 consecutive games for the
Pistons since Feb. 15, 1975, has averaged 8.5 points a game in six NBA
seasons. He also hold the Detroit record with 179 steals in the 1976-77 season.
Celtics President and General Manager Red Auerbach said the club also
received a future draft choice along with Ford in the deal for Tatum, a third-
year pro acquired from Indiana last July for a first-round draft pick in 1980
"Chris is primarily a playmaker and an extra special defensive player
who shoots well enough," Auerbach said.

CM. trips. Albion
By BOB EMORY
The Michigan field hockey team
tuned up nicely for its upcoming Big
Ten Tournament by dumping Albion
College 4- yesterday at Ferry Field.
In what some of the players said was
"a kinia boring game," the Wolverines
managed to avoid any fits of yawning
as they won their fourth consecutive
game and raised their record to 6-2 on
"IT SEEMED A little slow at first,"
commented forward Mary Callam, who
scored the first two Wolverine goals. It
was the sixth and seventh goals of the
season for the Bloomfield Hills junior
and the 27th of her career at Michigan.
She currently ranks second on the all-
time scoring list.
Callam scored her first goal late in
the first half when Jan Isaac fed her a
nice pass from the left side of the Albion
net and she drilled a low shot past
goaltender Mary Jane Lang from 15
Dea Mazzetta set up Callam's second
goal on an almost identical play and the
Wolverines led 2-0 before Albion made
the game close on a pretty scoring play
of their own. Jill Barry stopped a cor-
ner pass from beside the Wolverine net
with her hand, teeing it up perfectly for
teammate Tommi Polizzi who un-
corked a blazer that Wolverine netmin-
der Laura Pieri had no chance on.
MARY HIBBARD and Lisa Kaplan
scored the insurance goals for the
Wolverines, who head up to East Lan-
sing tomorrow to compete in the Big

team is as ready as they'll ever be to
make a strong showing. "We'll get a

should be a real good test for us now,"

Wings 2, Rangers 2;.,

Special to The Daily
DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings returned home to Olympia Thursday
evening and proceeded to play the New York Rangers to a 2-2 tie, before a
home ice audience of 14,172.
Jimmy Rutherford turned in a masterful performance as the surprise
starter in the Detroit goal. The Red Wings showed their skating superiority
early, controlling the play on the ice.
The first period ended as it began with both goalies playing superbly in
the nets to preserve the scoreless tie.
Bergman scored the first goal with 8:55 left in the second period and
Detroit maintained their 1-0 advantage until the third period of play.
Dennis Hextall scored off a deflection from Reed Larson with 10:25 to go
in the contest and Detroit settled into a defensive game until Tkaczuk scored
a power play goal with 3:35 remaining.
New York then tied the game on a goal from DeBlois at the 17 24 mark
on a play where Detroit's defense was committed offensively on the far end
of the ice. Rutherford was pulled out of his goal unsuccessfully in an effort to
stop DeBlois shot.
The! tie brings the Wings record to 1-2-3 for the season.
Centerman Brent Peterson was injured late in the third period and was
taken to the lockerroom on a stretcher.
