EAST LANSING-A five goal
blitz in the third period vaulted
Michigan's hockey team to an
8-4 triumph over Michigan State
here last night.
Rob Palmer, Pat Hughes,
Dave Debol, Kris Manery and
Dan Hoene all scored for the
Wolverines in the final stanza.
The goals brought Michigan
back from three early deficits.
BEFORE THE third period
Angie Moretto had been Mich-
igan's total offense. He scored
the first three goals for the,
Wolverines to register his sec-I
ond hat trick of the season.
"Moretto was just super out
there tonight," said Michigan
coach Dan Farrell after the
game. "He played the type of
game he's so good at-hanging

However, the young Wolverines did not yield to the tremen-'
