Clarke's score ruins Bruins
.From Wire Service Reports
Bobby Clarke rapped in his
own rebound at 12:01 of the first
overtime period to give the Phi-
ladelphia Flyers a come-from-
behind 3-2 victory over the Bos-
ton Bruins last night. The win
for the Flyers evened the Stan-
ley Cup final series at one game
apiece and sends the series to
Philadelphia for the third game
Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m.
The Flyer triumph was only
their second ever at the Bston
Garden dating back to the first
year of expansion in 1968-69.
BOSTON APPEXRED to he in
control of the game after first
period goals from Wayne Cash-
man and Phil Esposito gave the
Bruins a 2-0 lead.
Clarke cut the Brains' lead to
2-1 at 1:08 of the se-ond stanza,
but the Bruins remained in
command until the final minute
of regulation time. With 52 sec-
onds remaining Flyer defense-
man Andre Dupont converted
Rick MacLeish's centering pass
to knot the contest and send it
into sudden death overtime.
Both teams had numerous
scoring opportunities in the
overtime, but goaltenders Ber-
nie Parent of Philadelphia and
Giles Gilbert of Boston were
both outstanding. The Flyers
had two glorious opportunities,
but both Macleish and Terry
Crisp were thwarted by Gilbert.
Boston's captain John Bucyk
had the best chance before
Clrke's game winner when
Bobby Schmaatz set him up all
clone in front of Parent, only
to have the Vezina co-winner
mnke the crucial save.
AT TIMES the game was on
the verge of mass brawls with
nomeroas doable penalties being
ralled by referee Art Skov. The
main event occorred in the first
p e r i o d when Boston's Terry
O ' R e i l l y and Philadelphia's
Dve Schaltz squared off with
e,ch garnering five minute ma-
jors for their fisticuffs.
The Brains got the better of
the penalties, h o w e v e r, as
Schultz and Flyer teammate
Tom Bladon were also assessed
minor penalties giving the Bos-
tonians a two man advantage.
ALTHOUGH the Bruins did
not score a power play goal,
they did cash in three seconds
after the doable penalties ex-
pired when Cashmain converted
a short rebound off a shot from
Philadelphia's badman Schultz
proved to be one of the game's
heroes, notching two assists,
one on each of Clarke's goals.
WAYNE CASHMAN of the Boston Bruins cashes in on the first goal of the game, as Philadel-
phia Flyer goalie Bernie Parent takes a short break to collect his thoughts.
Loves win debut
Professional League Standings
By GEORGE HASTINGS
special To The Daily
DETROIT-World Team Ten-
nis made its debut in the Motor
City here at Cobo Arena last
night and immediately took on
one of the less savory aspects
of American team sports, as a
28-19 win by the Detroit Loves
over the Toronto-Buffalo Royals
was marred by a 15-minute rhu-
barb in the first half.
Midway through the third set
of the six-set meet, a mixed-
doubles match between Detroit's
Allan Stone and Mary Ann
Beattie and the Royals' Jan
O'Neill and Mike Estep, Royal
player-coach Tom Okker explod-
ed a la Billy Martin over a fault
call against O'Neill.
After a short delay for Ok-
ker's protest, the umpire re-
fused to let O'Neill to serve be-
cause of the delay. Okker waved
his team off the court in exas-
peration, and was only con-
vinced to continue play after
minutes of discussion.
The protest overshadowed a
s t r o n g performance by the
Loves' Rosemary Casals, who
took 12 of 14 games to pace her
team under the WTT's scoring
system, which a w a r d s each
team one point for every game
won during the meet.
Before a disappointing but en-
thusiastic crowd of 3,611, Casals
started slowly and fell behind,
2-1, to Wendy Overton in the
first women's set. But Casals,
the nation's third-ranked woman
player, soon regained her form
and stormed to a 6-2 win.
The Royals' Okker came right
back, however, and overpower-
ed the Loves' Phil Dent, 6-1.
Stone and Beatty completed
the first half of play by winning
the protest-delayed d o u b 1 e s
match, 6-2, to bring the Loves
to a 13-10 halftime lead.
Casals came back after the
intermission and continued her
domination, sweeping the first
four games over the frustrated
Overton, and then two more
from substitute Laura Rossouw.
Dent then surprised Okker
with a booming serve and pin-
point returns to upset the Hol-
lander 6-3, and give the home
squad an insurmountable 25-13

Only games scheduled
Orr lands four
By JOHN KAHLER
7 Johnny Orr has a secret ambition-to turn
the University of Michigan into a basketball
school. With that goal in mind, Orr and his
assistants have been hitting the recruiting
trail hard in the past few weeks, and their ef-
forts have so far paid off with the signing of
None of these prospects is particularly well
known, but neither was "Main Train" Worrell
when he came here. They should give the
empty seats of Crisler Arena something to
behold in campaigns to come.
THE FIRST player to ink his national letter
was Joel Thompson, a 6-7 forward who ma-
triculated at Flint Beecher. Thompson aver-
aged 23 points and 16 rebounds per game as
he led Beecher to an undefeated regular sea-
Thompson possesses an excellent shot from
20 feet out, and knows how to handle himself
under the boards. The influence of Flint legend~w
(and Michigan assistant coach) Bill Frieder
contributed heavily to his decision to come
Len Lillard, a 6-7 center who led Ann Arbor
St. Thomas to the Class D state championship,
signed on a few days later. A local hero, Lil-
lard should help attract a few paying custo-
mers to chronically undersold Crisler Arena.
The Michigan coaches took a chance on
Lillard, since the Class D competition he
played against is not particularly impressive.
But Lillard has the athletic credentials, be-
ing the reigning State high jump champion
(leaping 6-6) and placing second in the shot
put (with a 52-2 toss).
ORR WENT OUT of state to land another
front court man, 6-7 Burrell McGhee of War-
ren, Ohio. McGhee was the Northeast Ohio
player of the year at Western Reserve High,
the alma mater of Michigan football star Tim
McGhee possesses an unorthodox but ef-
fective outside shot, and handles the ball ex-
ceptionally well. Michigan needs depth at the
forward spots, and he can provide it.
Michigan has also signed guard Dave Bax-
ter, a Class B All Stater at Detroit Lutheran
West. Baxter's specialty is scoring; in the
three tournament games Lutheran West play-
ed, he came through with efforts of 51, 30,
and 44 points,
Through the season, Baxter averaged 27
points per contest. Since the Wolverines are
well stocked at guard, he should have time to
develop his defense.
THE WOLVERINES did not land a big man
and it does not appear that they will this year.
But the Big Ten coach of the year is not par-
"We have definitely improved our front line
situation and Baxter will be a fine guard. Of
course, we are not done recruiting, but at the
moment I feel- we are in excellent shape."
WAYMAN BRITT leaves a Wisconsin' defender behind asbe
rolls to a fast break bucket against the cumbersome Badgers.
Orr's new prospects may force Wild Wayman to return to
the backcourt. But don't bet on it.
