Thinclads dominate field events
but fall to Spartans, 7212 - 6712


The Michigan State Jinx con-
tinued to haunt the Wolverine
trackmen for the second straight
week as the thinclads, coming off
a rather disappointing perform-
ance in the Michigan State Relays
last weekend, were upset in a dual
meet by the Spartans, 721/2-672,
yesterday afternoon.
Despite the fact that the Wol-
verines completely dominated the
field events, sweeping three of
tho s evcompetitions,ntheir inter-
state rivals hung tough in the
running events to claim the meet
The final competition, the one
mile relay, proved to be the cru-
cial battle as the two teams en-
tered that event tied with 671/2
total points.
But unfortunately for Wolver-
ine coach Dave Martin, his team
of Kim Rowe, Eric Chapman, Greg
Syphax, and Lorenzo Montgomery
was outclassed by Spartan stars

The Michigan Wolverines played

For the first 55 minutes, the icers
< just weren't sharp. As Renfrew
readily admitted, they had a num-
ber of chances to put the puck into
the net but could only cash in twice.
Michigan opened up the scoring
at the 7:55 mark as Rick Mallette
and Julian Nixon combined on a
slick passing play. With only one
Irish defenseman, Ric Schafer,
back on the play, Mallette carried
the puck over the blue line. When
Schafer made his move toward
Mallette, the Michigan left wing
slid the puck to Nixon who broke
in all alone on the left hand side.

talent as he finished first in the

goalie, Dick Tomasoni, as the disk
slipped between his pads.
It took only 65 seconds for the
Irish to knot the contest.
A pileup occurred behind the
Michigan net and a loose puck
skipped out to Irish left wing, Ed-
die Bumbacco. Bumbacco took hi
time and set up center Paul Regan
five feet in front of the net. Regan,
probably surprised at being so wide
open, made no mistake and flip-
ped the puck home past Karl Bag-
nell for his first of three goals.
The Wolverines started the sec-
ond period looking like they were
going to take control of the game
but it was the Fighting Irish who
scored first.
Just past the eight minute mark,
Regan notched his second tally of
the game, a hard-earned score. Ian
Williams slapped a shot from the
point that Bagnell caught on his
pads. The loose puck fell just
inches in front of him with both
Regan and Michigan defenseman
Jerry Lefebvre fighting for con-
trol of the puck.
Regan won the battle, and slap-
ped at the puck twice, hitting the
Michigan goalie on both attempts.
His third try was more success-
ful as it found the netting in the
lower left hand corner.
Michigan tied up the score 90)
seconds later on a power play goal
as Michel Jarry scored after a goal-
mouth scramble on assists from
Bernie Gagnon and Paul Gamsby.
From that point, however, until
the final five minutes, the game
was all Notre Dame.
With three minutes left in the
second period, the Irish scored a
goal which was almost a mirror
of Michigan's first tally. This time,
Regan hit Williams with a pass
and the big right wing faked Bag-
nell to his knees and lofted a soft
shot over the fallen goaltender's
left shoulder. The goal, Notre
Dame's third, put the Irish into a
lead they never relinquished.
Only 56 seconds into the third
stanza, the Irish busted into a two

goal lead. Regan took a pass from
Williams and cruised in toward
Bagnell on the right side. He fakedE
a shot but passed slickly to Bum-
bacco who was free 10 feet in front
of the net. Bumbacco easily shd
the puck into the left side )f the
net to give the Irish a 4-2 advan-
Regan got his hat trick and the
eventual winning goal just past
the three minute mark of the per-
iod as he cashed in a pass from
Williams from 15 feet out with a
hard wrist shot.
Bob Falconer connected on a
slap shot from 25 feet out fir a
score as he converted on brilliant
passes from Gagnon and Brian4
Skinner to cut the Irish edge to 5-3.
If possible, that goal seemed to
fire up the Wolverines even more
and, only two minutes later, they
connected again.
This time Jarry got the tally on
a tip in from in front of the net.,
Gagnon passed to Merle Falk on
the right side and Falk's shot was
deflected in by Jarry.
In the last 44 seconds Michigan
pulled their goalie in an attempt
to get the tying goal but failed.

Gymnasts sweep to
40th straight victory


Special To The Daily}
BLOOMINGTON-In a triangu-
lar meet here yesterday, the
Michigan, gymnasts fought off
some adverse conditions to post
their 40th consecutive meet vic-
tory. By sweeping e v e r y event,
Michigan easily outdistanced both
Indiana and Northern Illinois,
posting a 163.65 total score. In-
diana was judged at 158.55 to take
runner-up honors while Northern
Illinois was third at 154.3.
After a lackluster performance
at Illinois Friday, Coach Newt
Loken was in better spirits about
the victory. "We're real proud of
them after an arduous weekend
of travel and two meets."
With the Big Ten champion-
ships only three weeks away, the
163.65 showing under those con-
ditions showed that the gymnasts
are striving to reach their peak
performance then.
Loken was especially pleased
with Ted Marti's performance in
the all-around competition. "He's
really coming around," Loken said.
"He usually has one off event but
last night he was consistent in
every one." Marti's winning score
was 53.1 while Rick McCurdy fol-
lowed with 52.85. Ray Gura round-
ed out the talented threesome
with 52.4.
The Wolverines scored well in
every event, posting a high in the
parallel bars with 27.8. Their low
event was the side horse where

they have had trouble all year.
,The 26.8 score sbowed. improve-
ment as Gura paced the gymnasts
at 9.2. Dick Kaziny added a 9.0.
In the horizontal bars event,
Michigan's consistency was illu-
strated as all three competitors.
posted fine scores. Ed Howard won
the event with a 9.35 showing
while both Marti and McCurdy
performed at a 9.25 clip.
Michigan also did well on the
parallel bars as Murray Plotkin
won a gymnastics event for the
first time. His 9.25 routine edged;
teammate Bill Hidgins who was
judged at 9.2,.
