It's just another rivalry. Merely the
matchup that fills Yost Ice Arena with
spectators, the series that saw each
team win at home and lose away last
year-it's only Michigan vs. Michigan
But if anyone is interested, it begins
tonight, as the Wolverines are in East
Lansing for the first game of the set
before they return to the friendly con-
fines of Yost tomorrow night. Both
squads are coming off a double loss last
weekend, and both feel pressure to win
these important, early conference
games. "In league play, it (the series)
is very, very important for both of us,"
said Spartan coach Ron Mason.
Michigan suffered defeats at the han-
ds of an explosive Minnesota outfit,
losing, 9-4, on Friday night and 5-2 in
Saturday's contest. Despite the losses,
John Giordano, acting coach in the ab-
sence of the ill Wilf Martin, was pleased
with the icers' play.
"Saturday, we did a good job," he
said. "We hit people. We played hard.
Winning will take care of itself if you
Three weeks into the campaign, the
Wolverines' top scoring line remains
the Don Krussman, Gordie Hampson
and Dennis May crew. Together they
have totalled nine goals and 24 points.
The team's leading scorer is still Steve

four games for a 4.5 goals against

I can get the puck in the net," said
Lynett. He is off to a good start this
season with six points, which is second
for the Spartans only to linemate Mark
Hamway. Hamway, nicknamed "The
Hammer," scored 42 assists and 27
goals last season.
The Spartans will be hoping to im-
prove their power play. Last weekend
they did not score at all in 15 power play
opportunities. "It was effective against
Northern in the first series, but you go
through dry spells," Mason explained.
"Last weekend, the opportunities were
there; we just didn't cash in."
The Wolverines, on the other hand,
have converted on 12 power play goals

Six grapplers head
west for mat tourney

A different style of wrestling and the best grapplers in America. That is what
six Michigan grapplers face when. they compete today and tomorrow in the Great
Plains Wrestling Tournament in Lincoln, Nebraska. The Michigan contingent of
Eric Klasson, Mark Pearson, Jim Mathias, Rob Rechsteiner, Mike
DerGarabedian, and graduate-assistant Steve Fraser is vying for the opportunity
to go to Tblisi, Russia and compete with the best wrestlers in the world.
The Great Plains Tournament features freestyle wrestling, which is radically
different from the regular intercollegiate style. In freestyle, the contestants
maneuver primarily while standing, as opposed to down on the mats. This poses
the problem of adjustment for the Wolverines. "You have to do a lot of training on
your feet," Pearson, Michigan's 145-pounder said, "which means that it takes
some time to adjust."
ASSISTANT COACH Joe Wells, who will accompany the group on the trip,
outlined the reasons for sending the six wrestlers. "We see it as an early season
warm-up. Our interest is to expose them to as much freestyle as possible."
As for the chances of individual Michigan matmen qualifying for world com-
petition, Wells was less enthusiastic. "The only person I anticipate doing really
well is Steve, who has a lot of experience in freestyle. Eric has also done well and iSI
capable of doing well in this tournament." Wells added that, while, the other
wrestlers' chances are slim, heexpects fine performances.
"I'm going out with the intention of winning it," said heavyweight Klasson,
"but I think that the competition is going to be really tough. I think I can place in
the top three, if I'm lucky."
THE MICHIGAN wrestlers are confident that they can prove to the rest of the
nation just how talented they are.
Fraser, who placed second in the Great Plains Tournament last year, per.
sonified the attitude of those going to Nebraska. "I'm just going to do my best," he
said. "Every year it's tough."
