Elliott, icers hope to

repeat upset of Tech

'1ky CHUCK JAFFE
Myichigan goaltender Jon Elliott has
.-rturned to the scene of the crime.
.,Last year, in his first two conference'
"games as a Wolverine, Elliott shut
own Michigan Tech, and Michigan
swept the Huskies in Houghton for the
first time since 1956. Tonight, when
Michigan squares off with the Huskies
.t."the Student Ice Arena, Elliott will be
,loking to recapture last year's magic,
and Michigan will be trying to break a
Jfi r-game losing streak.
The Wolverines have a 1-5 record in
gl -

the CCHA, including losses to top-
ranked Michigan State and Bowling
Green, while the Huskies boast a 4-2
conference record and are currently
ranked eighth in the nation in the WM-
PL hockey poll. But the Huskies' rise
hasn't been smooth, as they have faced
many of the same growing pains as the
youthful Wolverines.
"We have a lot of new faces on defen-
se, and we haven't been getting the
production from some of our experien-
ced players, but we have done well,"
said first-year Michigan Tech coach

Jim Nahrgang. "I'm very glad that
Michigan had to face Bowling Green
and Michigan State early in the season
instead of us."
Michigan Tech is anchored by
goaltender Mudge Tompsett, who step-
ped in for Ann Arbor native Tom Allen
last week and spurred the team to two
victories. The Huskies also feature a
balanced scoring attack led by juniors
Bill Terry and Ron Zuke, and, senior
Jeff Wylie.
"We feel that they are a usual
Michigan Tech team, and will play a

hard-hitting kind of game," said
Michigan coach John Giordano. "This
is a big series because we're in last
place. I wouldn't say this is a must
game for us, but if we lose two games
we'll be 1-7. Seven losses and you
almost can't recover. We'll make a run,
but it might take until December."
But if Michigan plans to make a
recovery, it has to start in the goal with
the play of Elliott. The sophomore net-
minder started the season in a dismal
slump, giving up 18 goals in his first two
CCHA appearances. Last weekend,
however, he returned to the form that
made him the 1981-82 CCHA rookie-of-
the year, recording 79 saves in two
games against Michigan State.
"I was having problems with my con-
centration and intensity," Elliott
said. "(Assistant) Coach (Mike) Turner
worked with me, and I've been coming
around. When a shot would come in, I
would stop watching the puck at a point
two or three feet from my body, and I'd
move my body to where I thought the
puck would be, instead of looking it into
my pads or body. I was missing by in-
ches. The defense might made a
mistake, then I would make a mistake,
and then 'Bang!', the puck was in the
net."
But Elliott has cut down on his
mistakes of late, and with the help of
Turner and his friends, seems ready to
turn his season around and become a
team leader.
"He didn't let it get him down if he
had a bad game," said Paul Kobylarz,
Elliott's roommate. "It never got to
him, and so now he's putting it together
and playing well."
No one knows how well Elliott is

playing more than Michigan Tech's
Nahrgang, who has prepared his team
to face one of the league's hottest
goaltenders.
"I told my team that we're facing a
hot goaltender, and we'll have to take a
lot of shots,' Nahrgang said. "We may
need 50 shots just to score three goals.
But if you throw enough mud against a
wall, some of it has to stick. We'll have
to be very offensive-minded and play
well, and hope that he has an off-night."
But Nahrgang doesn't really expect
Elliott and the Wolverines to have an
off-night. Instead, he is looking for a
hard-fought, well-played series.
Anything less would be a crime.
Both games of the Michigan-
Michigan Tech series will be broad-
cast by WJJX 0650 AM) radio.
Tonight's game begins at 7:45, and
will be simulcast on WCBN (88.3
FM), while tomorrow's game begins
at 7:15.

A young Michigan wrestling squad
will face its first test of the 1982-83
season as it travels to Lincoln, Neb. this
weekend to compete in the Great Plains
Open.
. The Great Plains Open is a two-day
event that will pit Michigan wrestlers
against wrestlers from other teams and
clubs from across the Midwest. The
event will give Michigan wrestlers a
chance to get some needed experience.
"Many of our players need to get their
feet wet" said head coach Dale Bahr.
WITH ONLY five members returning
from last year's 9-7 squad and a
majority of freshmen and sophomores,
. thteam Bahr takes with him to Lin-

workouts," according to Bahr. Flack
will start in the middleweight and is
sort of the darkhorse of the new
recruits. He is considered to have a lot
of potential and might be someone to
watch as the season progresses.
With such a youthful team, a lot will
be resting on the shoulders of the five
returning veterans. Bahr is counting on
the older players for both team leader-
ship and personal performance.
One of the top returning wrestlers is
two time All-American Joe McFarland.
He wrestled last year at 118 pounds.
When he reported to practice at 145
pounds it was decided that he should
wrestle at the 126-pound class, where he
is presently ranked number two
nationally. McFarland, though, has
been suffering from a strained knee and
may be red-shirted for the season.
Meanwhile, he will wrestle this
weekend.
Another top returnee is Tim Fagan at
158 pounds, who Bahr is "expecting big
things from." . Also returning are the
Rechsteiner brothers, Scott and Rob,
who will be wrestling at the 167-pound

and unlimited weight classes respec-
tively. "I expect them both to do well
int he league and in the nation," said
Bahr.
As for the team as a whole, Bahr
looks for this year's team to be a good
one that "will be great in two years.
This is a rebuilding year for sure, but
I'm looking for a good season."
BILLBOARD
There will be a pep rally tonight at
the Beta Theta Pi fraternity for
tomorrow's Michigan-Purdue football
game. The rally, which begins at 7:30
p.m., will feature tri-captains Anthony
Carter, Robert Thompson, and Paul
Girgash as well as head coach Bo
Schembechler.

--Four key wrestlers - Pat McKay,
1"JjIhn Beljan, Nemir Nadhir, and Big
Teen champion Eric Klasson - have
*graduated from last year's team,
leaving big holes in the Michigan
lineup. To fill in at these open positions
will be a number of outstanding
recruits. Among the new freshman
recruits, Bahr singled out three - Tony
Latora, Ray Yerekes, and Brian Flack
+- as wrestlers with a lot of potential for
:this season.
