A tough break.
After battling back from a 5-3 deficit early in the
,third period, the Michigan icers finally succumbed to
the Denver Pioneers by a score of 6-5.
WITH 17 SECONDS left in the final period, left
winger Vince Magnan grabbed a loose puck from
Michigan's John Blum right after a face-off, and
challenged Wolverine goalie Rudi Varvari on a one-
Unassisted, Magnan banged the puck into the
Wolverine net for his third score of the game, giving
the Pioneer a hat trick.
"We made a bad pass in a neutral zone," said a
displeased Michigan coach Dan Farrell.
MAGNAN'S WINNING goal came after Michigan
appeared to have gained the necessary momentum
for victory. Going into the third period, with Denver
ahead, 4-3, right winger Darrell Morrow dragged
Varvari out of his net as Wolverine defenseman Brian
Lundberg attempted to block the shot. However, the
shot got by Varvari, as Morrow fired the puck from
the goaltender's left side, scoring on a power play at
But Michigan hung tough, anl Jeff Tessier scored
his second goal of the night with assists from Dennis
May and Jeff Mars. Tessier hooked his shot around
Denver's netminder Scott Robinson-at 2:48.
THE LINE of Tessier, Mars and May continued to
pressure Robinson during Michigan's last power play
of the night, as Andy Hill sat in the Pioneer penalty,
Switching lines, Michigan continued to knock at
Robinson's door. The pressure soon paid off as
defenseman Tim Manning, after scrambling with the
puck, knocked it in at 13:58.
Manning's shot, which came from just outside the
crease on Robinson's left side, tied up the game at 5
Michigan challenged the top-rated Pioneers
throughout the night.
"They're a good skating team," said Farrell. Yet,
despite the display of skill from Denver as well as
Michigan, it was a hard-hitting, tough game.
SUCH WAS THE case when, at 16:31 in the third
period, freshman center Murray Eaves gave the
crowd a scare as .he laid on his back. Luckily for
Michigan, who is missing the services of its top
players, centers Terry Cullen and Dan Lerg, it was
just a nose bleed.
The Wolverines got off to a quick start in the first
period as John Olver scored at 2:48. Olver, sliding
past Robinson's left side, banged a forehand shot into
Denver, 'however, came right back, as Magnan
scored his first goal of the night on a power play. With
the players jammed in front of Varvari's crease, the
Pioneer dropped the puck iniat 4:26.
YET, THE SEE-SAW battle continued, as
Wolverine's Mark Miller's skate was in the right
place at the right time. Miller knocked in a shot from
the right point, deflecting Eaves' shot flew into the
net. The power play score came at 6:36.
Then came Denver's chance once again, as
Magnan scored his second goal of the game, at 12:23.
Similar to Denver's first score, Magnan shot the puck
through the crpwd of players in front of Michigan's
Subsequently, Denver took the lead in the second
period as Greg Woods scored at 4:38 on a shot from
Tessier's first goal of the night came on a slap shot
from inside the blue line at 11:54.
With the score tied at 3-3, Pioneer Mark Davidson
scored at 14:30, on, a power play goal. The sweep-
around goal gave Denver a 4-3 lead at the end of the

Equalize Scholarship $$-HEW
WASHINGTON-College would have to equalize their spending on
athletic scholarships and recruiting for male and female athletes, based on
their respective participation in sports, under a proposal by the Department
of Health, Education and Welfare, the Washington Post reported yesterday.
The long-awaited report, expected to be released next week, was drafted
by a special task force in HEW's Office for Civil Rights.
While the proposals would necessitate equal per-capita spending for
scholarships, recruiting and other financially measurable items, they would
not mandate dollar-for-dollar spending, the Post said.
There would be leeway for spending disparities, provided they result
from"sex-neutral" factors and don't have a negative effect on the oppor-
tunities of either sex.
Significantly, the paper said, the proposals cite college football costs as
an example of spending disparities that might be defensible.
Spikers ousted from regionals
Michigan's volleyball team ended a highly successful season on a sour
note Thursday night, as they were eliminated from the MAIAW regional
tournament in the quarterfinal round.
The spikers bowed to De Paul, 15-3 and 15-5, and Cleveland State, 15-3
and 15-7, in the double elimination tourney. Both teams are top contenders
for the regional title.
