DONNELLY STAR
By JOE PHILLIPS
The Michigan Wolverines com-
pleted a week-end sweep of the
Western Ontario Mustangs with
an overtime 3-2 victory last night'
at the Michigan Coliseum. Pat
Donnelly converted a pass from
Randy Neal at 3:40 of the over-
time period to keep the Wolverines
undefeated.
The first period looked like a
replay of Friday night's opening
stanza. Bernie Gagnon h e l p e d I
break a scoreless tie when he set
up line-mate Michel Jarry with a
perfect pass just insige the left
face-off circle.
Mustang goalie Pat Grace was
down and out of the play as Jarry
simply blasted the puck into the
open net.
Both teams backchecked fur-
iously as Grace and Michigan net-
minder Karl Bagnell were superla-
tive. The Wolverines went to the
dressing room with a precarious
1-0 lead.
In the opening minutes of the
second period Western Ontario
carried the play and Bagnell had
to make a tremendous save on
Mustang center Bob Best who
fired from point-blank range.
But Les McAninch capitalized
on some sloppy play by the Mich-
igan defense when he took a pass
from Pete Frazier on the right
side and popped the puck past a'
helpless Bagnell. The Mustangs
continued to apply the pressure as
winger Doug Johnson rang a slap
shot off the post to almost give
Ontario the lead.

Taylor, particularly, had trouble.
"They were just keying on me,"
he said. "I got hit even when I
didn't have the ball. I just had to
do my thing, which was blocking
for the fullbacks."
Five minutes into the second
quarter, Michigan finally crossed
the goal line on a one-yard run by
Shuttlesworth, Michigan's work-
horse throughout the game who
gained a career-high 135 yards.
After Coin's conversion tied the
score, his kick-off was fumbled by
Armstrong and recovered by Mich-
igan's Tom Kee on the Purdue 29
yard line.

missed several games with an in-
jured shoulder, passed to Darryl
Stingley over the middle. Stingley

Ling theWolverines on top again
in the see-saw struggle, 17-14.
The' Boilermakers came right
back with a 63-yard drive, even
though Danielson had to be re-
placed by Steve Burke after re-
injuring his shoulder.
The drive stalled on the Michi-
gan 17, but Mike Renie kicked a
34-yard field goal to tie the score.,
The Wolverines threatened to
score again immediately, after
Taylor burst through the line off
right tackle and sped 40 yards to
the Purdue 39.
Two first downs later, Michigan
had the ball on the 21 and Slade
attempted to pass to Doughty. The
ball was tipped by a Purdue line-
man and intercepted by Charlie
Potts, and to further complicate
m a t t e r s, pass interference was
called on Purdue at the goal line.
The officials ruled that the bat-
ting of the ball nullified the pen-
alty, but Schembechler argued
that the pass was either dropped
or fumbled by Potts. That would
have given the Wolverines the ball
back, but, though Schembechler
stomped on his hat in protest, the
officials ruled otherwise.
That only set up the more dra-
matic field goal by Coin, who
pointed out that the blockers did
such a good job that "After I
kicked there wasn't anybody near
me or Slade."

THE MICHIGAN WOLVERINES had a rare experience yes-
terday. For the first time all season their opponents didn't
collapse long before the game was over.
It was a knock-down, drag-out battle all the way. No mat-
ter what the Wolverines did the Boilermakers kept coming back.
It wasn't until Dana Coin put Michigan ahead with less than
a minute to go that they could begin thinking of victory and
even then Purdue refused to die.
However, it was exactly the type of contest that Bo
Schembechler and his team expected. Fans may have come
to believe that the Wolverines can roll over any team that
lines up against them, but Schembechler knew better. "I
knew it would be tough," he commented. Purdue played the
way they're capable of playing and I certainly expected
them to be every bit as good as they were."
At any rate, for a team with a 3-6 record the Boilermakers
put up a good fight. They were the first team to score more
than 13 points against Michigan and they were also the first
to score in the third period. The Wolverines rush defense rarely
gives up anything at all, but the Boilermakers managed to get
125. They added 185 in the air and finished with the shocking
total of 310 total yards.
The Purdue defense was equally impressive. Michigan
wound up with 303 yards rushing and 56 passing for 363 total,
but each one came very painfully. The Boilermakers were so
successful in the first half that Schembechler had to call nine
pass plays, when he usually uses less than that in an entire
game.
According to ,Purdue Coach Bob Demos, "I'm very
proud of my team. They gave 125 percent out. there against
a very fine football team. Maybe we played our best game
of the year, but we lost."
He added that "We decided just to go out and play Michi-
gan a tough physical game and see who won and that's just
what we did." The only problem was that Schembechler decided
to do exactly the same thing and his team turned out to be
tougher.
"Just call us gutty," Bo announced outside the locker room.
"That's the kind of ball club we are." And after they slugged
their way to victory yesterday no one would dispute him.
It isn't easy to win 63-7 one week and then have to fight for
your life the next, but the Wolverines proved that they could
do it. Billy Taylor is used to carrying the ball a lot and getting
yards everytime he touches it. But when Purdue managed to
contain his plays he adjusted and did his best to block for Ed
Shuttlesworth who was having better success.
The Michigan defenders are accustomed to stopping
enemy ballcarriers cold, The Boilermakers contradicted
this notion, but the defense hung in and made every yard
a war of attrition. Though they gave up some long plays
they refused to let it upset them and played that much
tougher on the next.
By making these adjustments yesterday the Wolverines
proved that they have character as well as talent. Although
they did it well, adapting couldn't have been that easy.
Purdue has a history of playing well against really good op-
ponents and they weren't abot to give Michigan time to get
things rearranged.
When teams are evenly matched breaks usually make the
difference. The only thing is that the better team can usually
control their own luck and that's what Michigan did yesterday.
A couple of drives were sustained when Purdue received penal-
ties, but only a dominant team can force the other to make
mistakes.
It is also the stronger team that can play over bad breaks,
which is what Michigan did. On their second to last possession
the Wolverine were on the Purdue 21 yard line and were moving
well. It looked as if they were on their way to the go-ahead
touchdown when Tom Slade's pass was intercepted. At least
that's what the officials said happened. They also said that
Glenn Doughty was interfered with in the end zone, which
would have given Michigan the ball on the goal line. However
they added that a Purdue defender tipped the ball at the line
of scrimmage, which nullified the penalty.
Schembechler agrees that the referee made a good call on
the interference penalty. However he disagrees with the end
result of the play. He argues that Charlie Potts fumbled the
ball after the interception and that Michigan recovered it.
The play could have meant the ball game. But the de-
fense came out strong, stopped Purdue quickly in their own
territory and got the ball back. The offense quickly moved
down the field to the Purdue eight where a busted play
cost them their chance for a touchdown. However Coin
came on and calmly kicked the field goal that won the
game,
The Wolverines could have panicked when they lost
the ball on the interception, but they didn't. They proved
that they could be patient and confident if necessary to win
games. It is' one of their highest goals to win more games
than any previous Michigan football team and if they're
ready next week they'll achieve it. But only because they're
a "gutty team"and will fight as hard as they have to in
order to win.
