Gopher sweep

The Michigan Daily

highlights WCHA actio

n

By TOM SHAHEEN
The Minnesota Gopher icers have
several things going for them at this
stage in the WCHA season, not the least
of which is their double devastation of
Wisconsin last weekend, 6-3 and 8-4,
leaving them only two points out of first
place. The Gophers are rated number
three in the nation, and a glance at the
WCHA scoring leaders reveals that
Minnesota certainly has the scoring
punch needed for playoff action.
Coach Brad Buetow believes that his
team's intensity level is the best it has
been all year., And it looks as if the
Gophers will be in the thick of things
when the playoffs roll around in March.
'OUR GOALTENDING and defense
have really improved," said Buetow.

"I'm not surprised that we swept
Wisconsin.
"We look for a physical series with
Michigan this week. But it's going to be
tough to beat their goalie (Paul
Fricker). He's as good as any in the
league."
Minnesota's Bryan "Butsy" Erickson
was named WCHA Player of the Week,
by virtue of his four goals and three
assists in the Wisconsin series.
"Erickson is very underrated," said
Buetow. "Everybody notices the (Neal
and Aaron) Brotens and the (Steve)
Ulseths, but Bryan is as big a spark
plug as any of them."
Notre Dame at North Dakota
The WCHA-leading North Dakota
Fiehtina Sioux thrashed Notre Dame 7-

3, in the series opener Friday night, but
the Fighting Irish held Coach John
Gasparini's icers to a 1-1 overtime tie
Saturday..
"OUR PERFORMANCE was ac-
tually better in the second game," said
Gasparini. "We had about a dozen two-
on-one breaks, but couldn't capitalize
on any of them - especially in the over-
time period."
North Dakota hosts red-hot Colorado
College this weekend, and Gasparini is
wary.
"They (Colorado College) are riding
high-I wish we were playing someone
else," he said.
Michigan Tech at Den rer
Denver tallied three times in the
second period within a span of 1:20 to
rip Michigan Tech, 6-3, Friday, but the
outstanding netminding of Tech goalie
Frank Krieber lifted the Huskies to a
hard-fought 3-2 overtime victory in the
series finale over the third-place
Pioneers.
"I'M VERY pleased with our per-
formance," said Tech coach John
MacInnes. "The first game was close

WOMEN NARROWLY DEFEATED:
Gymnasts sufer Big

Ten setback

MMEMMMW

by WENDY CLARK
Despite scoring a season high 260.35
points, the Michigan men's gymnastics
team suffered its second Big Ten loss on
the road last Saturday against Illinois,
which notched 265.30.
Marshall Garfield and Milan
Stanovich finished third and fourth,

respectively, in the all-around stan-
dings for the Blue.
In individual events, Michigan cap-
tured first in the floor exercise with
Kevin McKee's score of 9.5. John
Reickhoff clinched the pommel horse,
and Garfield took the parallel bars with-
identical tallies of 9.15. On the vault,

Stanovich chalked up the meet's
highest score of 9.6. Michigan's Darrell
Yee placed second on the still rings,
while Stanovich finished third in the
high bar.
The Wolverine's coach, Newt Loken,
said of the team's performance, "We
almost caught up to them after the
rings and vaulting, but we faltered
somewhat on the last two events,
enabling Illinois to post a win."
The Wdlverines have almost two
months to prepare for their rematch
with the Illini, in the Big Ten Conferen-
ce meet on March 13th and 14th in
Columbus. Said Loken, "We have every
intention of working hard to improve so
we, too, can be considered a
challenger."
The Wolverines have their work cut
out for them immediately, however.
This Saturday they travel to Min-
neapolis where they will take on the
defending Big Ten champs, Minnesota,
and Iowa State in a triangular meet.
"4It's back to the drawing board with
lots of work for the series of meets
ahead," said Loken.
Tumblers tumble
The women's gymnastics team went
down to defeat Sunday in a disappoin-
ting match with Illinois at Champaign,
falling a point short of the Illini, 131.20-
130.05.
"We could have very easily beaten '
them," said Michigan head coach Sheri
Hyatt. "But, as usual, we had trouble

with falling. When the judges deduct
half point for each fall, staying on the
apparatus can be the difference bet-
ween winning and losing. In the case of
the Illinois match, two falls made the
difference."
The tumblers had entered the com-
petition at a slight disadvantage. Team.
member Cindy Shearon was unable to
compete due to a sprained ankle which
she suffered earlier in the week during
practice, and the Wolverines were for-
ced to compete with the bare minimum
of six performers. Shearon will
probably remain out of competition far
at least another week.
As usual, the Wolverine's strongest
event was the vault, with high scores by
Michigan's Kathy Beckwith (8.90) and:
Teresa Bertoncin (8.75). Although the:

beam is consistently Michigan's
poorest event, it managed to capture a
first-place with a score of 8.65 by
Angela Deaver. Diane McLean also
made a respectable showing on the
uneven bars, taking a second place.
"I was generally pleased with
everyone's performance," said Hyatt.
"We have good routines. All I think we
need to do is work on our concen-
tration."
The women tumblers will host, Cen-
tral Michigan in their last home dual
meet at 1:00 p.m. next Saturday in
Crisler.
According to Hyatt, the meet with
CMU should provide little competition.
"Central should be a breeze," said
Hyatt. "It should give us a chance to
concentrate on ,raising our individual
scores."
