'M' smashes ND, 12-5
as Bourne nets hat trick

'M' HOSTS NINTH-PLACE WISCONSIN

Blue wary of Badgers

By DAN CONLIN
Notre Dame's second-string goalie,
Bob McNamara, stopped a slapshot
with his face in the first period of
hockey action last night. That might not
have been significant, except that it
represented his lackluster showing, as
he gave up three Michigan goals in the
opening five minutes of last night's 12-5
Wolverine rout of the Irish.
"Their goaltender was not.very sharp
tonight," remarked Coach John Gior-
dano appropriately.
McNAMARA'S replacement in the
third period had an even tougher time
with the Wolverines. At 5:16 of the
period, Michigan's John Blum raced
junior goaltender Dan O'Donnell to the
blue line where the puck was. Blum
beat the third-stringer to the puck and
proceeded to play a cat-and-mouse
game for the next 15 seconds as two
Irish defensemen, crouched in the goal.
3lum teased the three before flipping it
past them into the net.
Roger Bourne led the Wolverine at-
tack, as he earned Michigan's first hat
trick of the season with one goal in each
period. Captain Tim Manning,
sophomore Brad Tippett, and senior
Jeff Mars all added a pair of goals.
Michigan goalie Paul Fricker had 23
saves and almost went unnoticed
throughout the game.
NOTRE DAME penalties and
,Michigan's aggressiveness set the
tone from the start as the Wolverines
came out knocking the Irish off the
puck in the own end, setting up three
unanswered goals. The Irish spent half
of the first period in the penalty box
while Michigan spent the other half
shooting pucks into the Notre Dame
net.
Four Irish penalties and an un-
believable first period performance by
*the Wolverines gave Michigan a 5-1
By SCOTT M. LEWIS
He's neither flashy nor particularly
quick. He can't shoot on the fiun, or so it
is believed. In last-second situations,
however, there is no one the Michigan
Wolverines would rather see with the
basketball than Marty Bodnar.
Bodnar's remarkable left-handed
layup with two seconds left in overtime
Thursday against Michigan State was
*&the second time this season-and the
fourth occasion in his college
career-that he has made a game-
winning shot. To a man, the Wolverines
now look for. Bodnar in the clutch, a
situation which he has long relished.
He thrives on the pressure. "I just
react to the situation," he said momen-
ts after the 79-77 Michigan win, which
kept head coach Bill Frieder's team
tied for second in the conference with a
6-3 record. "On* the last play, I'm
looking for the shot. When I was a
freshman, I always wondered how I
would react in crucial situations."
On that final play, which capped an
evening that left both teams and.their
coaches emotionally spent, Bodnar was
one of three Wolverines designated to
take the decisive shot. Thad Garner
was supposed to set a screen for
McGee, who would then spring loose in

lead at the end of the stanza.
Goals by Bourne, Tippett, Steve
Richmond, Dennis May, and Manning
had everyone's jaws ganging. Notre
Dame countered with a goal by center
Adam Parsons at 12:55.
THE SECOND period opened with
another pair of quick Michigan goals.
With only 57 seconds gone, Manning
flew past the center to knock in a pass
from Richmond. Ted Speers also got an
assist.
By 1:25, the Irish had another man in
the box, john Cox for roughing, and
seven seconds later, the Wolverines had
their second goal. Mars flipped it past
McNamara during the two-man advan-
tage.
Notre Dame ripped off three unan-
swered scores, two of which were
powerplay goals. John Higgins started
as he beat Fricke at 4:55. Then with
Blum in the penalty box for tripping,
Dave Poulin stung the net at 6:48.
Speers went to the box for tripping
seconds after Blum returned and Bill
Rothstein made it 7-4 at 9:45.

Bourne scored his second goal at 11:39

Mars then added his second from a

claimed his 100th career assist on the
Mars score which ended the second

Notre Dame's John Schmidt opened
the third period scoring at 3:58 with a
slapshot from the blue line which hit at

Fricker.
Michigan's Tippett showed his wide
open style as he took a pass from Speers
and fired his slapshot from the blue line
at 4:53 to take advantage of a Wolverine
powerplay.
"We have to play better defense .. -
we kept our heads tonight," said Gior-
dano. "Tomorrow night will be a totally
different hockey game."

By BUDDY MOOREHOUSE
On the surface, it looks as though
Michigan is in a good position in the Big
Ten race. With one-half of the season
now officially over, the Wolverines hold
a 6-3 mark, good for second in the
league.
But looks can be deceiving, as
Michigan coach Bill Frieder is quick to

Crisler Arena against lowly Wisconsin
at 4:05 today.-The Wolverines should
still have fresh in their minds the 74-67
victory over Wisconsin in Madison just
a week ago.
The Badgers are currently ninth in
the Big Ten, bringing a 2-7 (8-9 overall)
record with them to Ann Arbor. Despite
this lowly mark, Frieder is not yet
ready to add another win to his team's
total. "I guarantee you that the
toughest game we have coming up is
going to be against Wisconsin,"

remarked Frieder. "Our kids just have
to forget about this win (Michigan
State) and concentrate on Wisconsin."
The brightest spot for the Badgers
this year has been the play of senior
forward Claude Gregory. Gregory is
currently third in the conference in
scoring with a 20.1 average, and sits in
second place among rebounding
leaders. Michigan fans will remember
the 6-8 forward as the player who made
an obscene gesture to the crowd after
fouling out of last year's game in Ann
Arbor.

seconds of regulation play, Johnson
dribbled past the mid-court stripe and
unleashed a perfect- turnaround 25-
footer which won the game-or so he
thought. The officials ruled, however,
that the shot came a split second after
the buzzer had sounded.

point out. "We still have to play In-
diana, Iowa, and Illinois on the road,"
lamented Frieder following Thursday's
79-77 overtime victory over Michigan
State. "It sure isn't going to be easy to
win those. And we still have to play at
MSU on February 14."
However, Frieder can take some con-
solation in the fact that those contests
are still a little ways down the road. In-
stead of having to tangle with a Big Ten
powerhouse, the Wolverines will start
the second half of the conference
schedule in the friendly confines of
Earlier in the season, after Michigan
had beaten Minnesota in double over-
time on a Bodnar shot, Frieder
remarked how the Barberton, Ohio
native had a knack for doing the right
things at the right time. Thursday night
during the post-game interview session,
Frieder recalled the snickers directed
at him and his former boss, Johnny Orr,
when they were recruiting Bodnar.
"I read the other day that Dick Vitale
thinks that Marty Bodnar is talented,"
the coach continued, raising his voice
ever so slightly. "Well, I remember
when Dick Vitale laughed at us when
we recruited Marty. He laughed at us."
No one is laughing now, neither at
Frieder nor his team. Their 15-3 overall
record is the best in the Big Ten, and
the Wolverines are ranked higher
(14th) than any of their conference
rivals.
Michigan State head coach Jud
Heathcote, for one, is a believer in the
Wolverines. "I think Michigan has a
shot at the Big Ten (title)," said the
Spartan boss. "They're a solid club, not
a talented one. And I always say that a
club like that can go a long way. But
we're gonna hang a loss on 'em in
Jenison. Mark it down."

"Paul Heuerman took the ball out of
bounds, I cut, and he saw me," said the
6-3 senior. "I went in thinking about
taking the quick jumper, but the lane
kept opening up. I didn't realize that it
was (6-8 MSU forward Ben) Tower
coming over. I was surprised the lane
was that open."
Johnson, who had another outstan-
ding shooting night (eight of 12 from the
field en route to 20 points), expected the
ball to come his way. In the last five

in the overtime? Probably, had Bostic
not slipped, allowing Bodnar to snake
his way through the Michigan State
zone.
"Sure, I was looking to get the ball,"
Johnson said afterwards. "All the
shooters were looking for it. But
whenever Marty gets it, everyone
clears out. He's the man. We're looking
for him there. But I thought it never
should have gone into OT in the first
place."

*KLASSON LONE 'M' VICTOR

Hawkeyes pin Blue,

40-3

LLLAM k L-'P)

By RANDY BERGER
Michigan had the spirit, a four-game
winning streak, a 4-2 record in the Big
Ten, and the home mat advantage but it
wasn't nearly enough as the second-
ranked Iowa wrestlers pinned,
manhandled and dominated the
Wolverines, 40-3, last night at Crisler
Arena.-
Iowa coach Dan Gable went into the
match saying that the Michigan meet
was just going to be a tune-up for the
Hawkeyes' upcoming duel with
Oklahoma and that's just what it turned
out to be. Iowa, in fact, didn't even have
to work up much of a sweat, for in all
but three matches, the Hawkeyes won
by lopsided margins.
"I PROBABLY feel the same right
now as the other coaches of the Big Ten
who have faced Iowa," said Michigan
coach Dale Bahr. "They are just a
sound physical team and are on a
streak now with three straight NCAA
championships."
Once again, heavyweight Eric
SMi lacn nrvp to~A hP the mrnat fnr-.

Banach, Klasson's victory was even
more impressive because Banach was
the fifth-ranked heavyweight in the
country.
"I was pleased with the way I
wrestled," said Klasson. "I'm starting
to gain more consistency."
BESIDES KLASSON, only 118-
pounder Joe McFarland and 126-
pounder Jim Mathias could muster any
competition for the Hawkeyes. Both
lightweight matches went down to the
final bell, with McFarland losing to
Barry Davis, 7-4, and Mathias falling to
Tim Riley, 14-11. ,
At 134, Michigan's Larry Haughn was
pinned with 2:17 left in the third period
by Tim Hertzweiller. Kelly Lewis didn't

fare much better, however, as he lost a
superior decision to Iowa's Lenny
Zalesky, who entered the meet with a
24-1 record.
Iowa's 150-pounder, Scott Trizzino,
had the easiest time of anyone, as he
pinned Michigan's Tim Fagan with only
:55 left in the match. The next four
matches were a little closer, but Iowa
still gained major decisions in each of
them.
PINNING IT DOWN: The Michigan
grapplers will try to rebound against
Minnesota tonight at Crisler Arena.
Minnesota, which finished third in the
Big Ten last year, will be trying to
defend last year's 25-13 victory over
Michigan.
