iS ties
By CLARKE COGSDILL
Michigan's top - ranked grap-
plers were less than impressive
yesterday in their 29-5 victory
over a weak Illinois squad in
Crisler Arena.
"We're going to work'like hell
this week," a grim-faced Rick
Bay snapped after the meet. "If
we keep wrestling this way, I
can tell you we aren't going" to
have a chance against any good
teams."
The Wolverines' main problem
was sloppy wrestling on their
feet. 126-pounder Rich Valley was
betrayed by an inability to score
necessary takedowns in his 6-3

Ioss' to Phil Miller. And Bill
Davids was lucky to overcome
his own carelessness and lack of
aggressiveness in his 6-6 tie at
134 with Andy Passaglia.
After four minutes and 24 sec-
onds of b o r e d o m, Passaglia
rushed in to earn a quick take-
down, giving him a 4-2 advantage
at that stage of the match.
A Davids third-period reversal
didn't i m p r o v e the situation
much. Passaglia escaped quickly
enough to keep his riding time
advantage, and the Wolverine
star still needed a takedown to
avoid defeat.
With 15 seconds showing on

the clock, Davids got the take-
down on a highly questionable
call at the edge of the mat.
Needing five seconds on top to
wipe out the riding time ad-
vantage, the Hazel Park native
had only to hang on to the end
of the match to claim an inspir-
ing come - from - behind triumph.
He didn't make it.
190-pounder Dave Curby and
heavyweight Gary Ernst both
fell behind in their matches. Tom
Edgren, a freshman appearing.
in his second meet, took Curby
down after 40 seconds, and re-
peated the trick in the second
period, gaining a 5-1 lead. A take-
down with 1:17 to go gave the
Wolverine veteran the win.
Ernst was nearly pinned 20
seconds into his confrontation
with Palmer Klass, when a quick
move by his opponent set him
down on his back for a take-
down and near fall. I
The struggle had to be stopped
while the Wolverine heavyweight
recovered from an injury. But a
minor hyperextension of his knee
didn't impair Ernst from domi-
nating the remainder of the
clash, which was decided by rid-

ing time.
Several Wolverines did well.
Leadoff man Jim Brown, 150-
pounder Jerry Hubbard and Rob
Huizenga at 177 tallied their us-
ual superior decisions, while Rick
Neff, substituting for Bill Schuck
at 142, and 167-pounder John
Ryan scored their first wins of
the campaign.
After the festivities, a smiling
Curby quoted the noted philoso-
pher, Billy Davids:
"This meet means nothing. We
can do it when we have to-and
we will." We'll see.

Michigan easily splashed past
Northwestern yesterday after-
noon, 78-45, in a Big Ten dual
swim meet. Diver Steve Schen-
that set two personal season,
marks in the one and three meter
dives to highlight the meet.
Both Schenthal and Pete Agnew
swept by the three meter board
season mark set just Friday
night by Don Craine. Schenthal's
323.65 and Agnew's 311.35 eclipsed
Craine's 310.05, qualifying them
for the Nationals.
Michigan diving coach Dick
Kimball was pleased by his
divers' performances. "We now
have four divers qualified for the
Nationals on both boards,"
claimed Kimball.
Dick Quint, Don Craine, Pete
Agnew and Steve Schenthal will
represent the Michigan diving
corps at the Nationals.
Michigan coach Gus Stager
continued to juggle his swim-

mers' events, "giving them a
little variety," as freestyler Mark
Anderson put it.
Stu Isaac again did not swim
in a breaststroke event, and
Semchyshen watched the dis-
tance events from the side. An-

presented a real challenge, yes-

THIRD PERIOD BLITZ:

SCORES

Ic ers
By BILL STIEG
After one and a half periods of
dull, ineffective hockey, the Mich-
igan Wolverines roared back with
four goals in the final period to
beat Minnesota, 5-3, to the delight
of a small but vocal crowd of 3,526
at Yost Ice Arena last night.
Trailing 3-0 at one point, the
Maize and Blue began their come-
back early in the second period
and for the most part controlled
play from that point on, scoring
five straight goals to post their
seventh WCHA win, which tied
them with idle Notre Dame for
seventh place in the conference
A pleased Dan Farrell credited
the win to a "change in our fore-
checking attack. That definitely
made the difference. I was a bit
reluctant to make the change, and

tri pup
one shot on goal in the first seven
minutes, and just ten in the period,
none of them dangerous.
A quick goal by Minnesota's
Buzz Schneider at 0:30 of the next
period, put the Wolverines down,
3-0. Finally, at 4:10 of that stanza
Pat Hughes put Michigan on the
scoreboard when he took Don Far-
dig's quick pass from behind the
net and knocked it past goalie
Brad Shelstad.
With that goal the tide began to
turn in Michigan's favor. Though
they did not score for the rest of
the period, it became clear the
Wolverines were dictating the flow
of play. And perhaps most impor-
tant, they stayed completely out
of the penalty box.
The splendid third period began
with Michigan playing hard. With

Minnesota

right in front of the net and neatly
backhanded it into the twine.
With the momentum of the game
in their favor and the crowd cheer-
ing every move, the Wolverines
suddenly took the lead a minute
later when the rangy Moretto pick-
ed off a weak pass in the Gopher
zone, and set up linemate Bob Fal-
coner who beat Shelstad from four
feet out.
The next 12 minutes saw Mich-
igan simply outplay Minnesota, at-
tempting more than twice as many
shots as the visitors, and threaten-
ing several times to add to their
lead.
As the clock started running out
on the Gophers, coach Herb Brooks

minutes left in a desperate attempt
to save his team from the upstart

fired as Fardig closed the night's
scoring with a calm flick of ther
wrist from 30 Feet out, sending the
puck into the unguarded goal with
seven seconds left.
Farrell was full of praise for his
young team. "I think Greg Foxj
played his best game of the season,
and this was Dufek's best game,3
also. He handled the puck with a
lot of authority. I also think Moorej
had one of his better nights."
Perhaps the only disappointing
thing about last night was the size
of the crowd. The Wolverines are
3-5 for January, and as Farrell
noted, "they like a winner. That's
what we're trying to give them.
