IOWA CITY, Iowa - Michigan
sophomore Gary Ernst stunned
Jim Waschek of Iowa 6-0 in the
heavyweight match to salvage a
15-15 tie last night in a dual meet,
at Iowa City.
Ernst came out strong from the

Up until that match it looked
as though Michigan would suffer
its first Big Ten loss and third
overall. The Wolverines jumped to
an early 12-0 advantage in the
first four matches but saw that
lead whittled away and finally
crumbled under an onslaught of
five consecutive Hawkeye wins.
The keypoint of the match came
when Jerry Hubbard was reversed
and nearly pinned with four set-
onds remaining. He had been lead-
ing 9-8 untilhe was subdued by
the quick blitz of his 150-lb. ag-1
gressor Dan Holm.
The score at that time was 12-3
but had Hubbard been able to re-
tain his lead the Wolverines would
have walked away victorious. But
it was not to be, and as coach
Rick Bay moaned after the match
"It was a real disappointment to

tIers into the meet and four of;

Bill Schuck continued the early
shellacking of the Hawkeyes by

kept his record intact by whipping
Mitch Mendrygal 11-4. The Wol-
verines' Mendrygal, who special-
izes in leg finesse was simply done
in by the superior strength and

Iowa closed to within three points
of Michigan, 12-9, after the 167
match when Mat Clarke squeezed

was actually leading until late in
the final period when a triple ex-
change of reversals started with

chances for a Michigan upsurge
were dim, considering the fact
that the final three grapplers from
Iowa were undefeated.

through with a narrow 2-0 win over
Michigan's John Ryan. The score
did not indicate the margin of the
match, however, as Evashevski
had Ryan on the defensive.

put the Hawkeyes temporarily in
the lead 15-12. It came about in
