WOES CONTINUE IN 5-1 SETBACK
Irish freeze Blue icers
If you studied or partied last night
between the hours of 7:30 and 10:00 you
did not miss anything at Yost Ice
Arena. The Michigan hockey team con-
tinued downward on its treadmill,
losing to Notre Dame, 5-1.
For the sixth straight weekend it was
a combination of no offense and no
defense spelling the Wolverines' down-
fall. It took the Fighting Irish two and a
half periods however to show that they
were any better.
WITH THE score deadlocked 1-1,.
Irish defenseman Dan Byers broke the
game open, scoring two goals within 24
seconds and that was all they needed.
Byers' first goal came at 14:58 while
the Blue defense posed for a picture and
each team was a man short. On his next
shot, Byers-put in a deflection off a
. point shot and the Irish led 3-1 last 15:22
and the period ended just that way.
Michigan had tied the game 1-1 at the
13 minute mark of the second period
g when freshman center Gordie Hamp-
son stole the puck from Irish defen-
seman Jeff Brownschidle at the red line
and skated in all alone on Notre Dame

the net and the crowd at Yost erupted.

big ten standings
Wolverines a winner ...
. . when it comes to effort
By DAVE RENBARGER
Special to The Daily
Roll over and play dead? Not this Michigan team.
Not on your life.
That certainly would have been the easiest thing for the Wolverines to do
yesterday amidst the controlled bedlam that was Purdue's Mackey Arena.
But they refused toqdo so, nearly erasing an early 26-point deficit while giv-
ing the league-leading Boilermakers about as much as they could handle.
The final score was 75-66.
Up against an inspired Purdue quintet and 14,123 screaming fans who
threatened to dislocate the building from its foundation, the Wolverines
never should have bothered coming out of their locker room.
After missing their first seven shots, Michigan was awarded two points
on a goaltending call five minutes into the game to get on the scoreboard. It
took them a good eight and a half minutes to reach double figures, and, over
fifteen minutes into the game, the Wolverines found themselves on the short
end of a 38-12 score.
Time to hang up the old sneakers, go through the motions, and vacate
the premises. Right?
At a point when other teams might have called it an afternoon, Michigan
showed the capacity crowd as well as the fans tuned in on television what it is
made of, mounting a comeback that put some excitement in what was
shaping up to be a romp.
Over a sixteen and a half minute period crossing the halftime inter-
mission, the Wolverines outscored Purdue 41-20 to pull within five.
"I can't say anything bad about our kids," said Coach Johnny Orr after
the game. "We made a great comeback, doggone it. There was enough time
left that we could have won the game ... I'm very proud of this team."
The critical plays that stunted the comeback came with 7:27 left in the
game when Tommy Staton drew his fifth foul. Although the Wolverines
managed.to stay close a while longer, they had lost the man who again
provided the impetus for the comeback.
"Staton played great in the second half," said Orr. "He was tremendous
and gave us the momentum."
On defense the junior guard, who was shifted to his old forward slot
yesterday, prevented the Boilermakers from running their inside game like
they did earlier. Staton came up with another clutch performance, forcing
several key turnovers to ignite Michigan's smoldering fast break.
In the somber Michigan locker room Staton mentioned some remarks
made by some of Purdue's players, in explanation of his inspired second half
"They came into the locker room at the half saying that they were going
to blow us out, but later on we had them fighting for their lives."
But Michigan finally ran out of horses, losing Joel Thompson on fouls
with just under seven minutes left. Leading 68-62 with 3:27 left, Purdue went
into its four-corner offense and, as one Boilermaker after another paraded to
the foul line, the outcome became apparent.
The most impressive element of Michigan's aborted comeback had to be
the circumstances under which it was mounted. The noise level in the arena
was deafening and sustained throughout the game. The Wolverines had a
hard time even hearing themselves dribble, much less hearing instructions
from the bench.
Purdue coach Fred Schaus did not fail to give the Boilermaker backers
partial credit for the victory. "The crowd," he acknowledged after tle
game, "You need that little something when you're so tired that you can't
put one foot in front of the other, they helped."
If Schaus's squad was that tired yesterday, then Orr's Wolverines had no
business even being on the court, since they have been on the road for four
days. But Johnny 0. had no excuses.
"Purdue is a fine team," he said. "I think that there's no doubt that
they're the best team (in the conference)."
But Orr's boys aren't ready to concede a thing to Purdue, even after suf-
fering their second defeat in six days. "They're a good team," said Alan
Hardy. "But I know we could beat 'em. It's just a matter of getting a few
Staton was asked if he thought Purdue was the better team. His reply:
"No way, man. Not at all ... and we lost no pride today."
