By BOB WOJNOWSKI
The Western Michigan women's volleyball team
thwarted a valiant comeback bid by Michigan by
taking a pulsating fifth and final game, 15-13 to cap a
15-3, 15-9, 4-15, 6-15, 15-13 victory over the Wolverines
in the CCRB last night.
The Broncos started strong, blasting their way to
easy 15-3, 15-9 victories in the first two sets before the
Wolverines turned rabid.
THE THIRD SET started slow, with Michigan
clinging to a slim 7-4 lead when senior Linda Cun-
ningham took over, serving 5 consecutive points for a
12-4 bulge. From there, the Wolverines closed it out
with senior Janice Margulies serving three straight
points.
It was at this point that Michigan appeared to take
control of the match.
"I thought we really grabbed the momentum in the
third game," said Michigan's veteran head coach
Sandy Vong. "I was trying to find a way to relax 'em
after the second game because they were too
tight-too out of control."
TO BE SURE, the squad heeded their coach's ad-
vice, as they breezed in the fourth game, 15-6 to set up
the decisive fifth game.
The Wolverines seized the early lead in the final
game, and appeared to be in total command when
Margulies closed out her service with two straight

ccumb to
points for an 8-1 Michigan lead. But the Broncos, win-
ners of the EMU Invitational in which Michigan
finished third, clawed back.
They fought to within 11-6, and then ran off six
straight points to grab their first lead of the game, 12-
11. In the process, they broke the Michigan service
four consecutive times.
MICHIGAN BROKE briefly back on top at 13-12,
but Western came right back, and after having ser-
vice broken once, closed it out at 15-13.
Michigan coach Vong was pleased with the
Wolverine comeback effort but was somewhat disap-
pointed with the team's overall play.
"I can't say that I'm pleased with our performance
because we really haven't played to our potential
yet," said Vong. "But I'm not going to get down on
them because Western is a very, very good team."
Jefferson part of the Pack
GREEN BAY (AP)- The Green Bay Packers
completed their trade for John Jefferson yesterday
when they announced agreement with the all-pro
receiver's agenton a series of four one-year contrac-
ts.
Jefferson, who with James Lofton will give the*
Packers one of the most potent wide receiver tan-
dems in the National Football League, was expected

AMU,

3-2

to arrive here Wednesday to sign the agreement.
The trade with the San Diego Chargers, announced
last Thursday, was conditional on the Packers
signing Jefferson, who had not reported to the
Chargers this year because of a contract dispute.
The first announcement of the trade said the
Packers would pay the Chargers undisclosed future
draft choices plus other considerations.
Green Bay Coach Bart Starr said yesterday the
Packers will send Aundra Thompson, a fifth-year
receiver, to the Chargers as partial compensation.
Starr declined to specify the draft choices involved.
Martin may boycott playoffs
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Billy Martin, manager
of the Oakland A's, has threatened to boycott post-
season play if he and his coaches don't receive.
players' shares for the divisional playoffs, according
to the Oakland Tribune.
Managers and coaches pay dues to the Major
League Players Association, but the association's
agreement with owners after the players' strike this
summer called for only players to receive extra
money for the special divisional playoffs.
"If me and my coaches don't get paid, whether we
win or not, we won't be around for the American
League championship seriers or the World Series
either," Martin told baseball writer Kit Stier.

in the first inning despite only three hits. The Walloons rallied to make it
close, but could never take the lead.
Max's Bar & Grill 17, Law Gold 17: Max's Bar & Grill was named the win-
ner of this contest under the tie-breaker system (Under this system, the
team that last held the lea is named the winner). The scoring eruption that
marked many of the other Independent League games was extremely
prevalent in this contest. The second inning saw Max's Bar & Grill score 10
runs, while the Law Gold put five runs of their own. In the third inning, the
Law Gold continued its hitting prowess by notching seven more runs.
RESIDENT HALL
Elliot 'A' 9, Scott House 'A' 5: Elliot house opened defense on last year's
residence hall championship in their victory over Scott House. Gary Gentile
hit a home run for Elliot House, while Dave Myler did likewise for Scott
House.
Van Tyne 32, Huber Beers 5: Van Tyne easily disposed of the Huber Beers
by scoring ten runs in each of the first three innings.
6th Van Duren 22, 6th Lewis 2: Jeff Allen and Eric Ray were the hitting
stars in 6th Van Duren's clear-cut victory. In four official trips to the plate,
Allen hit a home run, triple and two singles. Ray's single, double and triple
left him just short of the cycle.
Michigan House 'A' 16, Fletcher 0: The Michigan House bats were alive in
this contest in which three of its starters were never retired. Mike Beer was
four of four at the plate while Mike Sessa and Jeff Taylor were both perfect
in three at bats. Taylor and Dave Smith each clouted a home run.
Kelsey Roots Gold 4,'Adams 12 2: Kelsey scored all of its runs in the first
inning. With one out the Roots Gold reeled off six consecutive hits (two
singled, two doubles and two triples) to score their four runs.
FRATERNITY
Phi Delta Theta 12, Psi Upsilon 6: Defending champion Phi Delta Theta
jumped to a 6-0 lead before Psi Upsilon scored six runs of-its own to knot up
the score. That was as close as Psi Upsilon got as Phi Delta Theta proceeded
to build its lead back to six runs. Tom Zimmerman, Mike Citren and Mike
Baker all scored two runs.
Phi Sigma Kappa 15, Acacia 11: With the Phi Sigma Kappa leading 7-5
going into the top half of the sixth inning, it looked like a toss up. When
Acacia added a run in this half of the stanza it looked like they had an ex-
cellent chance to win the game. But then Phi Sigma Kappa scored eight runs
in the bottom'half of the inning to make the score 15-6. Acacia was able to
make the score respectable by scoring five runs in the seventh inning.
CO-REC

pionship in fine fashion as they breezed past the Derelicts. The Nit Wits.
