MADISON - A new season
is underway for the Michigan'
hockey team and it couldn't
have started off in a better fa-
shion. Dave DeBol knocked in
his third goal of the game 4:13
into overtime to give the Wol-
verines a 7-6 win here at the
Dane County Coliseum.
Wisconsin got off to a quick
lead after Mike Reeker scored
five minutes into the game. The
Badgers kept the pressure on
from the opening faceoff and it
paid off when Meeker slipped
the puck behind fallen goalie
Rick Palmer.
Dan Lerg tied it up for
Michigan 11 minutes later on
a rebound off of Badger
goalie Mike Dibble, for the

first Wolverine tally of the
young season.
But, Les Grauer swooped in
and took a shot that seemed to
trickle off of Palmer's stick to
give the Badgers a 2-1 lead at
Penalties in the first period
slowed the game down, espe-
cially in the waning moments.
Wisconsin really took the
play away from Michigan in the
second period, with numerous
rushes and many close - in
chances. But, it was Michigan
that scored the first goal, De-'
Bol's first, unassisted at 3:04 on
a flower "lav.
