Goodwin

TKO's Stevens in 3rd round

By RICHARD DEMAK
Mickey Goodwin's comeback trail took a great first.
stride last night at Crisler Arena. Goodwin, fighting
his first fight in several months, scored a technical
knockout over Rocky Stevens 43 seconds into the
third round.
Once the fifth-ranked middleweight in the world,
Goodwin controlled the fight from the opening bell.
He showed no. signs of the broken hand he suffered
months ago preparing for a bout with Marvelous
Marvin Hagler. Goodwin, now 34-1, was pleased with
his performance. "It's a first step, the first step
back. I thought it would go longer but I wasn't
looking for a Hagler fight yet."
NO ONE AT Crisler Arena could have ever con-
fused Stevens (24-11) for Hagler. The overmatched
Stevens was knocked down twice in the fight. In the
second round, Goodwin followed a right to the mid-
section and a left to the head with a right cross that
landed solidly on the side of Stevens' head. Stevens
fell to the canvas and after a few seconds returned to

his feet as referee Ed Saucedo completed the eight
count. The round ended with Stevens again able to
trade punches with Goodwin.
Goodwin made a quick work of Stevens in the third
round. Stevens took an eight count after another
right cross. Goodwin then pinned him against the
ropes, battering him with combinations. Stevens'
trainer stepped into the ring 43 seconds into the
round,rasking the referee to stop the fight.
Although Stevens presented little challenge, Good-
win admitted afterbthe fight that "I was scared to
death. I've never been so shaken before a fight. I
was tight because I've been beaten on in the gym
lately and because this was my first fight back. But
as the fight went on, my confidence grew."
GOODWIN STATED that little of his pre-fight
anxiety was due to the recent tragedy in Las Vegas
where Duk Koo Kim died last night from injuries suf-
fered in a fight last Saturday. "My group said a

prayer for him before the fight. I offered this fight to
Kim. But once the fight started, I did what I had to
do."
While Goodwin could be nothing but content with
his performance, the Michigan Athletic Department
must be somewhat disappointed. The crowd of about
2,900 included few students. The most visible student
participation came from two Michigan pom-pon girls
who held up round placards between rounds and a 25-
member section of the Michigan Marching Band,
which played between bouts.
As for Goodwin's future association with Crisler
Arena, no one seems to be sure. Goodwin plans to
fight in December and January but is unsure if
Crisler will be prepared to host another boxing event
so quickly. Promoter Bob Watson agrees with Good-
win, stating that he and the athletic department will
just have to look at the reaction to last night's
program before making any plans for future Crisler
Fight Nights.

Michigan hockey players Pat Goff
and Todd Carlile have gotten very wet
thus far this season. The freshman
defensemen were expecting a baptism
into college hockey, but received a
drowning, and only now are they
stemming the tide and showing the first
glimpses of success.
The two rookies from Minnesota
stepped right in as starters at the
Michigan blue line, and have at times,
played brilliantly. Their youthful
mistakes, however, coupled with inex-
perience at the other defensive
positions, have proven costly for the
Wolverines, who currently sport a 1-7
Central Collegiate Hockey Association
record.
"I THINK they have played well at
times," said Michigan coach John
Giordano. 'They have shown a
willingness to work and learn, but both
of them need to improve their play in
front of the net and in the corners.
They'll be good defensemen, they just
have to get more experience and keep
improving."
But if the two rookies have yet to play
consistenly, it may be because
they have faced Michigan State,
Michigan Tech and Bowling Green -
three of the top 10 teams in the country,
"I think it is better that we started

with the more difficult teams at the
beginning of the season," Goff said. "It
was a heck of a way to get into the
league and into the meat of things."
"IT HAS been one hell of an
initiation," added Carlile, who has
known Goff since he was three years
old. "We just need to jell in order to
play better. Once things start
clicking, we'll come around and the
amount of goals will definitely come
down. It won't be anything drastic -
like shutting Ohio State out in both
games this weekend. - but it will hap-
pen."
In order for the goals-against
average to come down, both Goff and
Carlile will have to improve defen-
sively. Both are skilled at taking the
puck into the offensive zone, but they
must improve to be well-rounded
players.
I have to take the man out better in
our own zone," said the 5-11, 190-pound
Carlile. "I have to get my concen-
tration level up and be thinking all of
the time. We all have mental lapses,
but I'd like to cut down."
"CARLILE IS a little bit harder hit-
ter than Goff, but he keeps bouncing
off," said Giordano. "He has to learn to
sustain and hold checks better. His
greatest asset is his skating ability and
shot. He's got a very good shot for a

young defenseman."
The 6-1, 190-pound Goff must also
work more in the Wolverine zone
Teamed with sophomore Mike Neff at
the blue line, the St. Paul, Minn. native
is a key man on the power-play team,
but he knows that he must get better at
both ends of the rink.
"Taking the man is probably my
toughest problem," Goff said. "I have
to learn more about covering in our
zone, and especially in front of the net.
I know that I need experience, and I'd
like to think that I'm learning."
"I THINK he (Goff) has to sustain his
checks better too," Giordano added.
"But he is one of the best passing defen-
semen I have seen come into the league
in a long time. He's a smart offensive
player. You may not remember this,
but former Michigan defensemen Dave
Richter, Steve Richmond and John
Blum all faced the same problems as
these guys did four years ago. They
turned into good hockey players too."
But handling the puck or the man
may not be the only problem for the
new Wolverines. Because of the youth-
fulness on the Michigan squad, op-
ponents have attempted to intimidate
the rookies, but both Carlile and Goff
feel that they have held up under
pressure.
"Irdidn't think it would be so hard-
hitting, but I don't think I've been in-
timidated," Carlile said. "I've taken
some pounding but I'd like to think that
I've given some pounding back too."
"THEY COME after you," said Goff.

defense
"Just knowing that you have new
defensemen back there, they'll really
be bugging you. It gets worse on the
second night of a series; when they're
sure that you're inexperienced, they
come after you even more. I'm getting
used to it more each series."
Goff and Carlile have not yet gotten
used to losing, and while both feel that a
comeback is in store for this year's
-Wolverine team, they also know that
the future is bright for the rest of their
careers in Ann Arbor.
"The younger players talk amongst
themselves about the future a lot," said
Carlile. "We know that we'll be good
this year still, but we don't have many
juniors or seniors, so we can only get
better. I think we're starting to come
around now, so we should be very good
in the future."
For Todd Carlile and Pat Goff, the
beginning of the college hockey season
has given them a chance to get their
feet wet. Now, though, it appears as
though they may be ready to dry them-
selves off and leave a line of opponents
in their wake.

Guild House 802 Monroe

NEW YORK (AP) - Outfielder
Dale Murphy, whose power hitting
and ability to drive in runs led the
Atlanta Braves to a division title,
yesterday was named to the
National League's Most Valuable
Player for 1982.
Murphy, one of two players named
on all 24 ballots, easily outdistanced
St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Lonnie
Smith for the annual award given by
the Basball Writers Association of
America. Murphy drew 14 first-
place votes frm the panel made up of
two writers from each league city,
along with eight seconds and one
each for third and fourth for a total
of 283 points in the balloting..
SMITH, who received eight first-
place votes, was a distant second
with 218 points: The other two first-
place votes went to Cardinals' relief
pitcher Bruce Sutter, who received a
vote from each panelist.

"I think there were a lot of deser-
ving guys in the National League,"
Murphy said. "I can't say I wasn't
thinking about it, but I can't say I
knew for sure I was going to get it."x
Murphy, 26, attributed the overall
play of the Braves, winners of the
NL West, with having a great deal to
do with his performance. He raised
his 1981 batting average by 34 points
to a solid .281, tied for the league
lead in runs batted in with 109 and
slammed 36 home runs.
"I think it was more a tribute to
how our team did; our team's doing
that well is really the reason I was
being considered," he added.
"The main thing that helps is
when the team is doing well - we
were in the thick of things all year,
and that was very helpful. You can't
drive in runs without people on, and
I got a lot of help from a lot of
people," he said.

Carlile and Goff
... improving with experience

Why didn't Jerome Foster sleep well
last night? The Buckeye defensive
lineman was worried about his Gridde,
Picks. "My heart tells me to take my
own team but that small, one-item Piz-
za Bob's pizza says to go with the
Wolverines," Foster said. "I don't
know what I'm hungrier for, a victory
in my final home game or that pizza.',
Will Foster pick against his own
team? Who knows. But you can keep
him hungry by winning Griddes your-
self. Just bring all 40 picks to the Daily
by midnight tomorrow for a chance at
that Pizza Bob's pizza.
