Michigan became the 20th team this
season to get a first-hand look at how
good Bowling Green can be. The
Falcons almost methodically coasted to
a 7-0 lead after two periods on their way
to their 17th straight victory.
"We didn't get good goaltending in
the first period," said Wolverine coach
John Giordano. "We had good goal
scoring chances the whole game, but
we didn't get any breaks."
MICHIGAN starting goalie Mark
Chiamp was not up to his usual stan-
dard of play last night. He surrendered
goals on three long shots in the first
period and was replaced by junior Join
Elliott early in the second stanza.
Dan Kane, a second team all-
conference selection last season, got
the scoring started with only 1:06 gone
in the game as he slapped the puck over
Chiamp's shoulder from -the left face-
off circle on a two-on-one break.
The Falcons' second goal came from
almost the exact same spot late in the
period off the stick of senior center
John Samanski. Just two minutes later
with the Wolverines' Brad Jones in the
penalty box, BG defenseman Mike
Pikul fired the puck between Chiamp's
pads from the right point.
WHATEVER HOPES Michigan had
of getting back into the game were
dashed early in the second period. The
Falcons' Peter Wilson fired home a shot
off a pass from Kane behind the net and
less than a minute later Pikul greeted
the newly-inserted Elliott by placing
the puck into the net from a short angle
to make it 5-0.
At 9:41 of the period, Samanski drew
Elliott out of the net and then passed to
an open Dave Randerson who fired it
into an empty net. Then with only 16
seconds left in the stanza, Kane scored
his second goal of the game and 13th of
the season after getting the rebound off
the goal post. It gave Bowling Green a
seven-goal lead despite the Falcons
taking only one more shot than the
"We're an experienced team, we're
playing the game the way it should be
played now," said York. "We're not
fancy and we don't do anything
unusual. We just play the basics and we
do it well."
THE FALCON defense was
especially outstanding as league-
leading goalie Gary Kruzich, a fresh-
man, kept Michigan off the board until
13:51 of the final period when Todd
Carlile got his seventh goal of the
season by pokingin the rebound of a
Bruce MacNab shot.
Two minutes later, Ray Dries gave
the Wolverines some added momentum
heading into tonight's rematch by firing
the puck by backup goalie Eddie
Powers off a nice pass from Jim Mc-
"We ran out of gas a little at the end,''
said Giordano. "But I think we'll play
