TECH, IRISH LOSSES SPOIL HOLIDAY

ountry

By DAVE WIHAK
The Michigan hockey team
makes the dreaded trip to Cop-
per Country to play the Michi-
gan Tech Huskies at Houghton
this weekend. The Wolverines
-.are just two points behind Tech
in the WCHA standings, and
saying that the series is cru-
cial is an understatement.
The Wolverines have played
the Huskies three times this
season, winning twice at home
by 7-5 and 4-3 scores, and losing
a cliffhanger at the Olympia in
the Great Lakes Invitational
Tournament by a score of 3-2.
The loss to the Huskies was
a tough one for Coach Dan Far-
rell and crew to take.

AHEAD 2-0 on a pair of goals
by Angie Moretto, Michigan
seemed destined to steal the
tournament championship from
Tech.
However, the partisan Tech
crowd had a lot to cheer about
when Mike Zuke of the Huskies
scored twice within the last
six minutes of the game to high-
light a Tech comeback. Zuke
scored the winning goal with
less than three minutes to play
in the game, leaving Michigan
with a consolation prize and
three all-star awards.
Despite the loss to Tech, the
Wolverines turned in a fine
tournament performance which
included an upset victory over

previously undefeated Harvard.
In this game the Wolverines'
fortunes were largely deter-
mined by the heroic goaltending
of Robbie Moore, who turned
aside 41 shots and kept the
Wolverines in the game.
Harvard scored twice on
Moore in the first two periods,
but an inspired Wolverine hockey
team came back in the third
period to score three unanswer-
ed goals. Kris Manery scored
the winner, with Ben Kawa and
Don Dufek adding the others.
The victory was especially sig-
nificant since three kay players
-Moretto, Werner and Fox-
had to sit the game out for the
Wolverines. All three had re-
ceived 'suspensions from the
NCAA and the WCHA for fight-
ing in a game against Michigan
State.

weekend, and Michigan needs
a consistent effort from a lot
of people to win both games.
Farrell stated that his most
consistent performers have been
Kris Manery and Angie Moretto,
the two highest scorers on the
team.
ONCE AGAIN, Tech provides
the challenge this weekend, and
to win at Houghton is something
that has been taboo for Michi-
gan teams. Last year, the scores
were 7-0 and 7-5, with Michigan
on the short end both times.
Nevertheless, Angie Moretto
voiced the team's optimism
going into this series, saying:
"We're always up for the games
against Tech."
As coach Farrell pointed out,
his team has played too incon-
sistently for him to be sure of
the outcome. The Wolverines
have proven they can beat the
best teams in the country-
Harvard, Minnesota and Michi-
gan Tech-and yet are sixth in
the WCHA standings.
The questions is this: Will the
real Wolverine team please
stand up?"

they host the Big Ten Invitational at Crisler Arena tonight. The
tournament is the first competition for the Wolverines since the
Windy City tournament December 7, and marks the first home
showing of the season.
This year's Big Ten Classic features teams from Michigan
State, Indiana, Ohio State, and Western Michigan.
In spite of the long layoff, the Michigan squad is bothered
by injuries to key performers. Senior co-captain Carey Culbert-
son and freshman standout Harley Danner are nursing ankle
injuries and will not see action while all-around competitor Jean
Gagnon's status is questionable.
The tournament begins with the compulsory routines. On Satur-
day the first round of the optionals' begin at 10:30 a.m. and the
finals, which will be carried live over Cable No. 3 television,
commence at 2:30.

Badger tankers face Michigan
Power laden Wisconsin promises to give the undefeated
Wolverine tankers their stiffest challenge yet of the young season
when the Badgers invade Matt Mann Pool tonight. The Badgers
thrashed Michigan 70-52 last year, and Michigan hopes to even
the score.
Wisconsin's swimming coach, Jack Pettinger, says his Bad-
gers are well balanced. "We're not super strong or super weak
in any event. It just depends on how well we do in a particular
meet," he said.
In Australian Pat Jarvie, Wisconsin has a breaststroker of
international caliber and teammate Brad Horner "can swim
anything," according to Michigan coach Gus Stager.
Wisconsin trained in Honolulu over the holiday break but
Michigan stayed home and Stager and diving coach Dick Kimball
used the time to drill their charges. Apparently the time was
well spent. Stager praised the workouts as "the best we've had
since I've been here."
Stager sees the meet as a tossup, calling both teams "pretty
,well matched" but says that the Badgers have a :better senior
team and more depth because of the experience.

every match but the 177-

Michigan wrestling coach
Bill Johanneson said that the
match was more of a tune-up
for the Northwestern meet this
Saturday.
"Rhode Island is a tough
team in their own conference,
but the Big Ten is the tough-
est all around. It gave our guys
a good workout."
Senior Jim Brown extended
his dual meet unbeaten strng

through two periods, but Brown,
who was this year's Midlands}

al period to win his 126 match.
Easily the most exciting,
match occurred at the 134
weight where Brad McCrory
pinned Rhode Island's Mike
Willner just 75 seconds into
the first period.
Although a freshman, Will-
ner was a high school All-Amer-
ican. He was stunned though by
an early McCrory takedown and

Coach Farrell explained, "We
played Frank instead of Robbie
because we felt Zimmerman:

we lost to Notre Dame is that
we played poor positional hock-

sistent effort from anyone."
