Pioneers'

wagon

with second-stanza burst, 8-3

By JOHN NIEMEYER
Proving that all bad things
must come to an end, too, Mich-
igan's hockey team capped a
weekend sweep of Denver last
night, 8-3. The crucial victory
-reversed the Blue momentum
after three straight disastrous
weekends.
The win, which vaulted the
Wolverines into sole possession
of third place in the WCHA, re-
furbished Michigan's previously
crumbling hopes of gaining a
home berth in next month's
opening rounds of the confer-
ence playoffs.
A four-goal burst in a 55-
second span midway through
the second period keyed the
Wolverine victory, squelching
a dull defensive struggle that
had nearly put the 4,510 Michi-
gan faithful to sleep.
With .,Michigan leading 2-0,
Pioneer Perry Schnarr- shoved

the puck past goalie Rob Palm-I
er, narrowing Michigan's lead to
one at 13:13.
But in less than a minute, th6
Michigan icers nearly ran hap-i
less goalie Ernie Glanville outf
of Yost Arena. The determined
dekers rammed in three goals
to put the contest out of reach.!
Mark Miller started the surge
for the Blue'as he took a pass
from Mike Coffman and fired
the puck past Glanville 27 sec-
onds after the Denver goal.

Twenty-one seconds later,
Glanville came way out to
stop another Michigan scoring
threat only to watch Kip
'Maurer skate around him and
slide the puck into an empty
net.
With his head still spinning,
Glanville watched again'as Bill
Thayer drew him to the left side
of the crease and then fed Kris
Manery. The Blue captain eas-
ily hit the right side of the net,
making it 5-1 Michigan.
"Our scoring finally came
back this weekend," said Mich-
igan coach Dan Farrell of the
fine offensive performance.
"When we were losing all those
games, we weren't playing that
poorly. We just weren't scor-
ing."
For the first half of the game
it looked like neither team would
score as lady luck and both
goalies kept the puck out of the

net.
Both Palmer and Glanville
made some tough saves in the
first period, but on more than
one occasion they ended up on
the ice with the puck sitting
there crying to be flipped in, to
no avail.
At one point, Debol took a
beautiful feed on the left side of
the net and slammed it past
Glanville only to watch it carom
off the opposite goal post.
To finally open the scoring,
Greg Natale skated down the
right side and fired a slap shot
off Glanville which Manery
rebounded and put in. The
power play score was Man-
ery's 100th career goal and
boosted his lead as Michigan's
most prolific goal-getter ever.
Michigan's second goal came
on a picture perfect power play.
Dave Debol waved his stick
overhead, signaling to Bill Thay-

er who hit him with the puck in
front of the net. "Deebs"
rammed the puck off Granville
and then pushed the rebound in
to make it 2-0.
Two minutes later, the second
period fireworks began.
Farrell was especially pleased
with the Wolverines' fourth
straight win over Denver this
year. "We've never swept a
team twice in one season as long
as I've been here," said the
Michigan mentor.
Sweeping Denver was even
more impressive, since Farrell
teams had only beaten Den-
ver three times before this
season. MICI
Now the dekers turn to the wrest
task of playing five of their re- mate

MADISON - Wisconsin's Bob
Fauk, sparking a three-guard of-

50 Big Ten basketball victory
over Illinois yesterday.
The triumph came on the
heels of an upset of Purdue on
Thursday and marked the first
time since mid-December that
Wisconsin had put two victories
back-to-back.
Center Ray Sydnor, who
missed the Purdue game with
a foot injury, saw limited ac-
tion yesterday before he re-
injured his foot with less than
eight minutes gone in the sec-
ond half.

An enthusiastic Bill Johannesen, Michigan's
coach, termed the meet "just great
"We had some really great performances.
We're coming along week by week. We should
be at our peak for the Big Tens and Nation-
als," Johannesen said.
King contributed the quickest victory by
pinning Michigan State strongman Shawn Whit-
comb 1:36 into the match. At the start of the
match, King gained a fast takedown and Whit-
comb hit his head on the mat, leaving him
dazed.
"I THINK KING would've beaten him any-
way," Johannesen said regarding the injury.
"He was ready mentally and that's what this
is all about. He had good practices all week."
"It's regrettable what happened to Shawn
(Whitcomb)," Spartan coach Grady Peninger
remarked. "If we could've had a five-minute
break, it would've been better. But you only
get three."
Churella's fall came 3:05 into the 150-pound
match over State's Bob Pollitt.
"Churella wrestled one of the best matches
in his life," Johannesen noted. Churella dom-
inated the entire match, scoring a takedown,
a two-point near fall and two three-point near

fails before finally pinning Pollitt.
NEISWENDER PROVIDED a 10-3 victory
over Rick Warner of MSU at ,167. Team cap-
tain Johnson, (177) in a flurry of takedowns,
came away with a lopsided 18-6 superior deci-
sion.
Johannesen was also excited about 142-pound-
er Karl' Briggs' performance.
"Briggs was just great. He really wrestled
right on. He beat a good fifth-year senior,"
Johannesen remarked. "This meet will defi-
nitely help seedings (in' the Big Tens) and I
think Briggs will be in there now."
Briggs scored a 10-4 victory over Spartan
Don Rodgers. Earlier in the week, John Har-
rington was slated to ,wrestle for Michigan
State but he suffered a broken hand last
Tuesday.
"I'VE GOT NO COMPLAINTS," the Spar-
tan coach said. "We had to use five walk-ons
who had very little practice. It was a° good
meet overall."
Other Michigan victories came at 118 pounds
with a major decision from Todd Schneider
and heavyweight Bob Taylor's first varsity win,
7-6.
The Wolverines go on the road next week
when they face Wisconsin, rated second only
to Iowa among Big Ten teams.

EAST LANSING - Plagued
by {both slow times and disquali-
fications, the Michigan track
team turned in a disappointing
performance last night at the
54th annual Michigan State Re-
lays in Jenison Field House.
The Wolverines failed to qua-
lify any of their relay teams for
the fast-approaching NCAA In-
door Championships, while com-
ing up with only three individual
champions in eighteen events..
The team ventured to East
Lansing with the purpose of
qualifying a two-mile relay
team of Steve Elliot, Greg
Meyer, Dave Furst and Andy
Johnson for next month's
championships.

Everything went according to
plan until the third leg of the
race, where runners from Bowl-
ing Green and Eastern Michigan
bolted past Furst. The team
placed third with a time of
7:35.6, missing the NCAA's qua-
lifying standard by nearly three
seconds.
Head tract coach Jack Har-
vey could offer no explanation
for the poor showing from the
usually reliable Furst. "I don't
know what happened to him,"
he said. "We were in it all
along.'He just blew it."
The other major Wolverine
setback was the disqualification
of the strong sprint medley re-
lay team. Blue sprinter James
