WOLVERINES SWEEP MICHIGAN TECH:
Icers conplete double defeat, 5-4

BY JON WELLS
Like a spider lures prey into his web,
so the Michigan hockey team continues
t se Yost Arena as a death trap for
ir WCHA foes. When the final buzzer
sounded on Sunday and the Wolverines
had preserved a grueling 5-4 victory,
the Huskies from Houghton became the
sixth WCHA team to emerge from Ann
Arbor without a victory, extending
Michigan's overall home record to 16-0-
1.
The weekend sweep of Michigan Tech
solidifies the icer's hold on second place
the WCHA (12-7-1) and bolsters their
rall record to a sparkling 21-8-1.
After a rousing, come-from-behind
victory in overtime Saturday night
before a capacity crowd, the
Wolverines changed their tack from a
somewhat defensive posture the night
before to a style of play more charac-
teristic of the team this year: unbridled
aggression.'
For the first two periods the
Wolverine attack consisted mainly of
h ad-manning the puck quickly, dum-
g it into the Huskie zone, and
crashing the boards. The benefits of
this offensive style manifested them-
selves first when Michigan burst into a'
2-0 lead in the final four minutes of the
first period, and continued, boosting the
Wolverines to a 4-2 second stanza ad-
vantage.
"'We changed some things today
(Sunday)," said Michigan Coach Dan
Farrell. "We worked the puck deep,
ereas yesterday we worked the plays
m the point. You've got to be
aggressive when you play these guys or
you'll get blown away."
"Aggressive" was indeed the key
word as twenty-six minutes of roughing
penalties were handed out to the two
teams in the first two periods. The main
event erupted at 3:25 of the second
period when Joe Milburn of Michigan
and Todd Scott of the Huskies squared
off in the Tech end, igniting a free-for-
that resulted in three players from
h side being sent off for a total of
sixteen minutes. In the end, the alter-
cation was less a brawl than a group
disrobing that saw Milburn stripped of
his gloves, helmet and jersey.
The Wolverines came out slow in the

final period,,however, and Michigan
Tech deadlocked the game at four with
a pair of goals within the first four
minutes. Huskie defenseman Jeff John-
ston netted his second goal of the day,
when he snapped a fifteen-foot wrist
shot past Blue goalie Paul Fricker's
glove hand at 0:55. Less than two
minutes later Fricker was again beaten
to his right, this time by the Huskies'
junior Swede, Per-Ake Johansson, to tie
it.
As has been the case all season at
.'r.E'. .. *d . : .....#

Michigan's senior center Dan Lerg
was undoubtedly the standout player in
the series. He scored the winning goal
in overtime on Saturday, and set up the
winner on Sunday, compiling a series
total of two goals and three assists.
Lerg has gone far toward filling the
void created by a half-speed Murray
Eaves (mononucleosis).
Another bright spot in the Wolverine
picture has been the increasing offen-
sive effectiveness of defenseman Steve
Richmond. He was the perpetrator. of
the prettiest tally of the game in the
second period when he zig-zagged his
way through a Tech forward and two
defensemen at the Huskie blue line, and
shifted past a fooled Darcy Way.
Farrell was pleased but not sur-
prised. "We see Steve do that sort of
thing all the time in practice. He
stickhandles very well."
BLUE LINES: With one assist during
his limited icetime Sunday, Eaves con-
tinues to lead the Wolverines in scoring
with 74 pts. Baseotto and Lerg are close
behind with 65 and 64 respectively.
Eaves is questionable again for the
Notre Dame series next weekend at
Yost. According to Farrell, the
sophomore center's status will be
determined day to dy. Goalie Paul
Fricker notched his second assist of the
season Sunday, as he directed the puck
to John Blum who, in turn, sent Rich-
mond on his dance through the Huskie
defense.

Yost, the Wolverines came up with just
the' ingredients they needed to win as,
just three minutes later, left winger
Gordie Hampson trickled a Dan Lerg
rebound past Tech's bewildered nret-
minder, Darcy Way. Hampson's timely
tap, some solid goaltending by Fricker,
and a costly hold by Tech's Mark
Palkovich at 17:15 combined to pave
the rocky road the Wolverines traveled
to their weekend sweep.

MADISON, Wis. (UPI)-A less than
fond farewell to Michigan fans at Ann
Arbor, Mich., last weekend has earned.
University of Wisconsin forward
Claude Gregory a place on the bench. .
Coach Bill Cofield' said yesterday
Gregory will not start Thursday night
against Michigan State in a disciplinary
action. Gregory fouled out of the game
Saturday against Michigan and made"
obscene gesture at fans, which he
er apologized for to reporters.
"It's not something to share with the
media or the public," Cofield told the
Milwaukee Sentinel. He said Gregory
will practice with the second string all
week.
Gregory has discussed the matter
with Athletic Director Elroy Hirsch and
written a letter of apology to Michigan
Coach Johnny Orr and his players.
