It was the icing on the cake-so to
speak-to a great weekend of sports
for Michigan fans, as the icers downed
Minnesota, 7-5, to sweep its two game
All-ASmerican Dave Debol scored
two goals, his 99th and 100th in a
Wolverine uniform, earning honors as
the first star of the game.
While Debol played just another
game in his outstanding career, fresh-
man goalie Rudy Varvari was pressed
into service for the first time when
starter Frank Zimmerman was hit by a
hard shot on the elbow.
VARVARI HAD a credible debut,
stopping 26 of 31 shots and came up with
a few difficult saves when the team
needed themthe most.
Those winning Blues
The game started out exactly like
Friday night's contest as the Gophers
scored the game's first goal on the first
shot on net. But, also like the first game
of the series, Minnesota's 1-0 lead did
not stand up for long:
Debol scored the first of his pair, a
power play at 10:10 and Dan Lerg
followed up with a blistering shot only a
minute and a half later and Michigan
never trailed after that.
The Gophers fell deeper into a rut as
Lerg and Kip Maurer tallied 21 seconds
apart in the second period to make the
score Michigan, 4-1.
THEN MINNESOTA hounded the
Wolverines into numerous mistakes
and took advantage of a rash of
penalties on both squads to tie the game
But Debol popped in another power
play and the Wolverines never
relinquished the lead.
Less than three minutes later, the
Wolverines electrified the crowd of
4,264 with their penalty killing.
WITH JOHN McCahill in the box,
Dan Hoene and Ben Kawa both knocked
in shots, at 18:29 and 18:41 respectively,
to claim Michigan's first two short-
handed goals of the season.
Michigan is now 6-2 in the WCHA (8-2
overall) which puts them no worse than
second place pending the outcome of
Notre Dame's game at first place Den-
ver. Minnesota falls to 5-3 in the league.
The Wolverines next action is next
weekend at Colorado College.
