Friday, lonuory 14, 1977 . I


The Michigan hockey team1
tries to avenge two previous de-
feats to Michigan Tech this
weekend as the Huskies come
'to town to renew one of the
most intense rivalries in col-
lege hockey.1
In recent years, this intra-
state contest has been import-I
ant in deciding which of the
top two teams will finish at or
near the top of the WCHA.
Once again the series is a
key one for Michigan, which
has a chance of moving into!
the conference lead after this!
Tech, however, is struggling
through one of its most dis-
mal seasons in recent history,1
possessing a 6-9-1 conference
record and presently lodged
only one notch out of the
WCHA cellar. .
Off to an agonizingly slow
start, Tech is not as bad as
its record indicates, and has be-
gun to turn things around.
Even in ninth place the Hus-
kies are only five points out of
fourth and feel that with a'
strong showing in the next few
weeks they can still gain a
home berth for the playoffs.
Michigan Coach Dan Far-]
rell points out "in their last1
eight games they have won
. The newly formed women's!
track and field team still needs
seriously interested women,
particularly those with any ex-
perience, according to coach
Ken Simmons. The club team
currently practices weeknight
evenings at 5 p.m. in prepara-
tion for tentative meets later
in the year. If interested, con-!

six, lost one and tied one."
Included among those six
wins areY two in the Great
Lakes Invitational Tourna-
ment, one over Bowling Green
and one over Michigan in the
finals, 7-6.
In the two teams' other con-
frontation this season, the Wol-
verines split with the Huskies
in Houghton, losing 4-3, and,
winning 5-3.
Last weekend North Dakota,
tied with Michigan for second
place in the conference, snap-
ped Tech's 7-game unbeaten
streak in Houghton.
Farrell feels that that break'
in momentum plus the incen-
tive Michigan has coming off
the loss to Tech at the Great
Lakes Tournament will give

Michigan a solid shot at sweep-
ing the series.
"I think we can win this
weekend. We have a score to
settle from the Great Lakes.
We played well enough to win
and didn't," said Farrell.
"We have the incentive and
pride to win," he added.
Offense has been one of the
problems for the Huskies so far .
this season. They haven't been
able to get the goals when they
need them, having only tallied
90 on the season.
Michigan, meanwhile, has
racked up 127 goals to lead the
nation in scoring.
Leading the Huskie scoring
attack is first line center Stu
Ostlund. Ostlund, a junior,
had a big weekend against the

Sioux of North Dakota with
two goals and three assists
and has been steadily improv-
ing all season.
Joining Ostlund on the first
line are right wing Ed Dempsey
and left wing Stu Younger, who
are the team's second and third
leading scorers respectively.
Younger is the leading goal get-
ter with 14 while Dempsey tops
the team in assists.
Defensively, Tech is average,
having given up as many goals
as they have scored. 'Goalie
Bruce Horsch ranks eighth in
the conference in goals against
average and, is a solid but not
spectacular netminder.
Tech's biggest asset is its
team size and strength.

"They are a very physical
team," said Farrell. "We
can't get into a hitting match
with them."
That is particularly good ad-
vice when considering last week-
end's fiasco with Colorado Col-
lege which saw 47 penalties and
left possibly two Michigan play-
ers out of tonight's contest.
Dan Hoene was disqualified in
Saturday night's game and will
definitely be out. Kris Manery
was given a ten-minute miscon-
duct penalty and according to
a standing team rule he won't
be able to play either.
Considering the situation in
Saturday's frenzied contest
however, Farrell may decide to
waive the rule in this case, a
decision he will announce today.
