1st place Sioux tomahawk Blue

No, Michigan was not idle last
Saturday night-the icers played a late
starting game against North Dakota in
Grand Forks.
No, the Wolverines did not win-they
were edged, 9-8, in overtime.
And yes, each team played its
goaltender, although NoDak netminder
Mel Donnelly played as if no one infor-
med him that the game would count in
the league standings.
MICIIIGAN TOOK advantage of
Donnelly's shakiness, scoring on two
seemingly harmless shots from Doug
Todd and Dan Lerg, just 22 seconds
apart, before the game was even four
minutes old.
But after the teams traded goals, the
Sioux took command, quickly and
rather convincingly, scoring four times

in less than nine minutes. So after one
period, North Dakota led, 5-3.
The second period was without a
doubt the finest 20 minutes of hockey
Michigan had played this year. It began
with Wolverine captain Mark Miller
scoring 1:20 into the period to pull his
team to within one goal of the Sioux.
It appeared as if the Blue was on the
verge of tying the game, barely missing
a number of times, when referee Leo
Cotroneo hit Michigan defenseman
John Blum with a two-minute hooking
penalty. And when Blum skated to the
Wolverine bench instead of the penalty
box, Cotroneo added two more minutes
to his total for unsportsmanlike con-
BUT INSTEAD of firing up the Sioux,
the penalty calls inspired Michigan.
The Wolverines denied the Sioux the
puck for most of the four minutes and
even outshot them 3-1 during that time.
North Dakota, frustrated at having
blown such a golden opportunity to add
to its lead, began to make all kinds of
mistakes. Michigan's penalty killing,
especially the job done by Bill Wheeler

and Brian Lundberg, turned the Sioux
into a confused and disorganized
hockey team.
The Wolverines took advantage of the
NoDak's breakdown and tied the score
on a power play goal, when an errant
Sioux pass put Lerg in alone on Don-
nelly. Unlike Friday night when he was
stopped twice, Lerg made no mistake
and buried the puck high over the North
Dakota netminder.
With the score tied, 5-5, to start the
third period, an announcement was
made informing the 5,950 Sioux fans
that Wisconsin had just beaten Min-
nesota. A North Dakota win would
mean first place in the WCHA for the
Sioux-for all of about ten seconds. Af-
ter a brief flurry of fast skaing around
the Wolverine net, Michigan took com-
mand when Jeff Mars scored at the 30
second mark. The Blue scored again at
the 47 second mark and again at 4:30 of
the final period. It looked for all the
world like Michigan would win its first

game since December 9.
But it just wasn't to be. Goals by Nor-
th Dakota's Dave Christian, Doug
Smail and Mike Burggraf during a span
of only 53 seconds tied the game up once
With the Sioux fans in a frenzy, both
teams came out for the ten minute
overtime period obviously nervous. But
the tension didn't last long when a
mistake at the Michigan blue line sent
North Dakota's highly touted freshman
Kevin Maxwell in alone on Wolverine
goalie Bob Sutton.
Maxwell deked left, then right, then
left again and finally shot the puck high
over Sutton's right shoulder just 1:02 in-
to the extra session. As soon as the red
light went on, the Winter Sports Center
went bananas. The entire Sioux team
mobbed Donnelly, now 5-0 as a starting
goaltender, and the fans chanted
"we're number one !"
The win, which lifted North Dakota
into the top spot in the WCHA, was the
Sioux' 12th in their last 14 games, while
Michigan has now lost eight in a row,
despite its improved play.

Wolverine gymnasts

imp ressive in victory;
Rothwell leads way
"We're on our way to becoming a challenger for the future." Michigan
Coach Newt Loken made that prediction after his men's gymnastics team
scored an impressive 206.5 to 198.8 victory Sunday at Crisler Arena over
Michigan State.
Strong routines by specialists and the return of Nigel Rothwell keyed the
Wolverines' third dual meet victory without a loss.
The Wolverines attained the victory without all-around performer Ciris
Van Mierlo, who is out with a separated shoulder. Co-captain Rothwell,
coming back from a thumb injury, performed well as his 53.15 points for the
all-around exercises topped the competition.
"I was happy with my performance, it feels like I'm back at full
strength. Actually, I'm surprised I didn't wipe out and kill myself," joked
Rothwell agreed with Loken in saying the tumblers could be a contender
if they stay clear of injuries and "everyone keeps going."
Everyone kept going Sunday as the Wolverines charged into the lead af-
ter the first event, the floor exercise. Specialist Jim Varilek and Rothwell led
the way with 9.35 and 9.05 points, respectively.
With the exuberant Loken cheering his team on throughout the meet,
Michigan extended its lead after the pommel horse competition. Rothwell
and specialist John Rieckoff accounted for more than half of the team's 31.25
points for'the exercise. _
Ring specialist Darrellyee's 9.15 helped the gymnasts increase the edge
to nearly five. All-arounder Bruce Schuchard and Rothwell added to the lead
with fine routines in the vaulting event.
The Spartans closed the gap slightly after the parallel bars. Gordon
Higman's 8.9 paced the Wolverines while Marvin Gibbs led Michigan State
with 9.05 points. Gibbs was the Spartans' bright spot as he finished second in
the all-around with a score of 52.95.
High scores from Rothwell and co-captain high bar specialist Bob Creek
helped the Wolverines pull away at the end.
Rothwell said that the Wolverines had no problems in getting mentally
prepared for Michigan State. "We got fired up because they beat us last
year. It's a good thing because the meet could have been close."
Van Mierlo isn't sure when he'll be able to return to action. "I don't want
to start too soon since I might hurt it (the shoulder) again. I could be back in
a month for Indiana State."
