In a game as diverse in nature as Dr. Jeckyl
and Mr. Hyde, the Michigan hockey team out-
lasted Notre Dame last night at Yost Ice Arena,
Notre Dame coach Lefty Smith characterized
the game best when he said, "the fans certainly
got their money's worth."
period, the contest took a radical turnabout, with
penalties and hot tempers abounding.
Almost halfway through the second period the
battle resembled a demolition derby, with referee
Medo Martinello dealing two Notre Dame ten-min-
ute misconducts, including one to goalie Len
Notre Dame's Don Jackson collected a tripping
penalty and a ten-minute misconduct at 13:46 of
the second period, testing the already-tight emo-
tions. Michigan then took control following a pair
of offsetting penalties, pummeling Moher with a
barrage of shots from the point.
CLOSE TO THE END of Michigan's power play,
what appeared to be a goal by Dave DeBol was

called ack, the call being that he had directed
the puck with his skate. Not awaiting the final
call by the referee, however, Tom Moher let his
feelings be known and ultimately collected a ten-
minute misconduct, joining his teammate on the
Junior John Peterson then assumed the net-mind-
ing duties for the remainder of the game.
With only three minutes left in the erratic period,
Jack Brownschidle scored an unassisted goal that
evidently ricocheted off a Michigan player. Goalie
Rick Palmer contested the goal on similar grounds
of directing the puck, but it was to no avail.
AS THE THIRD PERIOD began, with the score
all even at 4-4, the contest seemed to have the
makings of a slugfest.
The referees, however, came out prepared for
some hard hitting and kept emotions under con-
Michigan opened the period's scoring only a
minute into play with a goal by Bill Wheeler right
in front, off a pass from Hoene on the right.
Until the third period Michigan seemed to be


using its power play much more effectively than
in the past weeks, but wasted three opportunities
to put the game away early.
WHEN MANERY SCORED with only four min-
utes to go, it looked as if Michigan could hold
out. The goal was picture perfect, shooting past
Peterson in the lower right corner of the goal.
A curious, if not crucial, decision was made
when Notre Dame Coach Smith pulled his goalie
with 1:18 remaining.
The face-off was in the Michigan zone but was
promptly swept the length of the ice setting up
Thayer's open net goal, with the assist going to
Manery. This put it away as even the last min-
ute goal by Notre Dame's Collier was too little
too late.
ALL THIS FOLLOWED from the looks of the
lackluster first period, what started out to be a
dull scrimmage.
Coach Dan Farrell seemed satisfied with the
win, explaining, "We got some good action on the
power play, keeping 'the puck in their zone. I can't
believe we're putting the puck in the net as well
as we are."

District meet: Last

If history is to repeat itself this morning in Champaign,i
Illinois, the least disappointed people in town will be Ron
Warhurst and his Michigan Cross Country Squad. l

American Conference. and Notre Dame.-
Five schools, but only a maximum of three from the 1
Big Ten, will advance on. to the NCAA Char-pionships.
Michigan ace Greg Meyer sees Wisconsin as the team
to beat, but Illinois also poses a threat. "We'll be running
on Illinois' home course, and for them that will be a big t
advantage," Meyer related. "They always bring out good
crowds and this really gets them fired up.
"As for Wisconsin, they always run super in the Dis-
trict Meet. This year they'll be even tougher because of
their disappointing fourth place showing in the Big Ten
Individually, Meyer is looking to even the score with
Herb Lindsay of MSU, who edged him out of second place
last week at Northwestern.
The course at Ch'nmns ign is 10.000 meters, one and
three fourths of a mile longer than the customary five
mile length, gives Michigan an advantage, according to
Warhurst. "As a team we tend to get stronger as the
race noes on," he expljined. "Mever Donakowski and
McFee really can grind out that last two miles when
they have to."
In fact, it was this ability that enabled the harriers to
