Purdue 34, Iowa 7
IOWA CITY - Mark Herrmann

took the second-half kickoff 80 yards in
13 plays, for the go-ahead score. With
the score 17-10, Illinois advanced to the
Indiana 31-yard line, but a 49-yard field

good. This was the closest Illinois was
to scoring in the second half.

ference record at 2-2. Illinois fell to 0-3-2

IT'S THE FAMED option play as Michigan's quarterback Rick Leach (7) prepares to make the decision to pitch out to wing-
back Ralph Clayton (22) or keep the ball. Leach appears to have made a good number of right decisions as he performed
well in the Wolverines' 42-10 victory over the Gophers. See page 9 for more football stories.

as Nedomansky shines
By JAMIE TURNER
Special to The laily
DETROIT - The old parlay of opportunistic play and solid goaltending
was a winning combination last night, as Detroit defeated the previously
undefeated Chicago Black Hawks, 7-2.
Vaclav Nedomansky and newcomer Roland Cloutier led the Red Wings .
with five goals between them, as 15,872 fans at Olympia roared their
approval. Rogie Vachon played his finest game in a Red Wing net, allowing
only two late goals when the game was well in hand.
"They were clicking, they were checking and they were skating with
authority," said a pleased Detroit Coach Bobby Kromm. "We took
advantirge of some opportunities early in the second (period) and kept it up
all the time."
The ones who kept on the pressure were Detroit's "odd couple." The
veteran Nedomansky-who scored the only first period goal en route to a
hat trick-and the rookie Cloutier-who brought the crowd to its feet with
two picture goals-buzzed around the Chicago end, creating chances for
themselves and their teammates.
After Nedomansky's first period'marker, four Detroit goals broke the
game open ii the second period. Dale MCCourt blasted a 20-foot slap shot
past Chicago goalie Tony Esposito at :16 to start' the onslaught.,Before the
stanza was over, Cloutier and fellow rookie Fern LeBlanc combined tallies
with Nedomansky's second goal of the game to boost Detroit to a 5-0 lead.
Cloutier's goal was by far the prettiest. The rookie from Kansas City
deked past Bobby Orr and around Doug Hicks before flipping the puck over
Esposito's right shoulder. Cloutier and Nedomansky sandwiched their final
goal around two Chicago tallies in the third period.
