fall apart, lose
By ADAM MARTIN
Special to the Daily
DURHAM, N.H.-Before arriving in
New Hampshire, Red Berenson
stressed that he wanted more emphasis
on the first period when his Wolverines
faced off against the UNH Wildcats last
Well, Red got just what he wan-
ted-and a full slab of things he didn't
want as the Wildcats scratched and
growled their way to a 7-4 victory last
night at Snively Arena.
"I'M disappointed," said Berenson,
"We had the edge in the first period and
What Michigan lost was that all-
important momentum, courtesy of a
slew of penalties and an improved New
Hampshire power play.
UNH gathered three power-play
goals, including one with a two man ad-
vantage-the responsibility of an angry
bunch of Wolverines, who were hit with
nine two-minute minors.
"PENALTIES were a big factor
tonight," said Berenson. "We took
some bad penalties and couldn't get
things going again."
But while his opponents were
stymied, UNH coach Charlie Holt's
team saw an opportunity and took it.
The Wolverines were the victims.
"We were down, but not out," said
Holt, "and we bounced back."
IN THE first period, the Wolverines
began a barrage that should have given
them a five-goal lead. But because two
of those tallies were disallowed
(Michigan was called for manning the
crease), the lead was only three.
It was plenty, however, to give the
Wolverines the initial edge in momen-
tum-something Michigan hasn't en-
joyed in its six previous games.
The lead came largely as a result of
goaltender Tim Makris. The freshman
from Marlboro, Mass. stopped fifteen
Wildcat shots in the period, displaying
the coolness and confidence of an ex-
perienced goalie in his first college
THE Wolverines scored first at 7:36
when defenseman Bill Brauer took a
Bruce Macnab flip pass from the slot
and popped in his first goal of the
Three minutes later, Brad Jones,
Michigan's leading scorer, beat New
Hampshire's Greg Rota with a wrist
shot to the top corner for a 2-0
Wolverine lead. Tom Stiles got the
assist on that goal and would later score
one of his own.
Todd Carlile notched Michigan's
third goal at 17:45, redirecting a John
Bjorkman centering pass behind Rota.
BUT Michigan's momentum advan-
tage was nullified quickly in the second
stanza, thanks to a stepped-up Wildcat
attack which produced four goals in 11
The Wildcats finally got on the board
at 5:36 of the second when Kirk Lussier
tipped in Allister Brown's backhander
that Makris couldn't control. UNH
brought the deficit to one on its sixth
power-play goal of the season. Dan
Muse's sharp backhand shot off the
right post bounced in behind Makris at
8:27, and the Wildcats were beginning
to scratch away at what had looked like
an insurmountable lead at the end of
the first period.
UNH mobilized from then on, and
jumped out to a lead the Wolverines
How important were the
penalties? Just ask Tim Makris.
"We played great in the first, and
from then on it was just one
word-penalties. The penalties got us."

... goal's too Ittle, too late
By SKIP GOODMAN
The Michigan spikers limped into last
night's match with first-place Purdue
licking the wounds from three straight
road losses but first-year coach Barb
Canning was optimistic about her
"We were hoping to catch them off
guard," Canning said after the
Wolverines fell to the Boilermakers, 15-
8, 9-15, 15-8, and 15-11.
PURDUE'S Marianne Smith led a
relentless Boilermaker attack in game
one with four spike kills and several key
blocks. The listless Wolverines let six
deep shots by Purdue go by only to have
them land fair.
Michigan came out sharp for the
second game, jumping to a 4-0 lead.
Purdue countered with a seven-point
run on serves by 6-2 junior Smith. But
the organized Wolverines, utilizing
trick sets by Andrea Williams and Lisa
Vahi, rebounded to leave the Boiler-
makers in the dust, 15-9.
The two teams traded points in the
third game until the score reached 7-7.
After a Purdue timeout, the Boiler-
maker returned to the hard-hitting tac-
tics that brought them the victory in
game one. Purdue coach Carol Dewey
beefed up her front line with seniors
Beck Winsett and Kate Crandall. The
two six-footers blocked nearly
everything the beleaguered Wolverines
tried to hit over the net. Purdue coasted
to the win and a 2-1 advantage in the
The Boilermakers controlled game
three, allowing the Wolverine's only
spikes from Jenny Hickman and
Heather Olsen. Purdue freshman Linda
Reichl and teammate Smith scattered
the Michigan spikers with bruising
shots and frustrated the Wolverine of-
fensive effort with their airtight defen-
se at the net. The Boilermakers went on
to a four-point victory and the match.
Canning was not disappointed with
her team's effort. She pointed out Pur-
due's distinct height advantage and
was impressed with her club's ability to
disrupt the Boiler offense with effective
serving. Said Canning, "We were able
to make them change their plays and
make mistakes." She added that
Michigan would work on its ability to
counter the type of blocking that the
Boilermakers used to dominate the 4

front line in last night's volleyball action. Williams' effort went for naught as
the Boilermakers took three of four games in the match.
COLLINS REMAINS OPTIMISTIC:
By DAVE ARETHA
Her team, which has won only one game in 17 tries,
had just been defeated by three goals, and the wind
chill was hovering around zero. Yet Michigan field
hockey coach Karen Collins was in a good mood.
"The team played very well, they did some things
I asked them to do," said Collins after the Wolverines
fell to Iowa, the eighth-rated team in the country, 4-1.
"You learn through playing teams like Iowa," she
THE COACH could overlook the seemingly lop-
sided score since the game was tied as late as the
middle of the second half. Only then did Iowa's Kim
Herrmann score the first of her two goals to put the
Hawkeyes ahead to stay.
Collins preferred to look at Lisa Murray's first goal
of the season and at the strong goaltending of Jonnie
Terry who made several sterling saves.
"Jonnie did a very good job in goal," said Collins.
Terry had to be sharp because Iowa fired shots at
the Wolverine goal almost continuously. The
Hawkeyes finished with 36 shots on net.
Collins chose to discuss the future rather than the
team's 1-12-4 record. She said that the squad has a
similar outlook and that team morale is high.
"THEY'RE A young team - they know they're a
young team - and they look towards the future,"
Among its 14 regular players, Michigan has four
freshman and four sophomores.
Yesterday's game was played under frigid con-
ditions. It was especially cold for the players who had
to wear skirts and short sleeve jerseys. But Collins
said the cold did not affect the teams ability to keep
their minds on the game.
The Wolverines have just one more chance to pick
up their second win. They close out the season against
Purdue tomorrow at 11:00 a.m.
Grapplers debut in Fame Classic
By MARK BOROWSKY
With the Big Ten being one of the perennially tough con-
ferences in the nation, one might expect the Michigan
wrestling team to begin its season with a proverbial light-
Not so. The Wolverines start their season today in
Stillwater, Oklahoma, at the Hall of Fame Classic, where
they will grapple with two heavyweights indeed - Oklahoma
and Oklahoma State. Along with Iowa and Iowa State, the
s Sooners and Cowboys constitute the 'Big Four" of collegiate
wrestling that annually dominates the NCAA.
YET HEAD coach Dale Bahr feels that the Classic will give
his squad a good start for the new season and that Michigan
will provide some heavy competition of its own.
"This is the first time a Michigan team has ever been in-
vited to the Classic and our guys are looking forward to
wrestling some of the nation's best," Bahr said, whose squad
will also face a team of Japanese collegiate all-stars. "Both
Oklahoma and OSU have returning All-Americans in several
weight classes, but I think we have the talent to make a good
Bahr can make such statements in all sincerity, for he is
looking at one of the finest Wolverine squads in recentI
history. There are four returning NCAA qualifiers, and nine
out of ten weight classes are filled by returning starters, none
of which are more prominent than senior captain Joe Mc-
"JOE HAS been our top man for three straight years and
just keeps getting better," Bahr said of the returning Big Ten
champ at 126 pounds. "Even if we move him up to the 134-
pound division, he's going to keep winning - he will prove
he's the best."
The other NCAA qualifiers - seniors Scott Rechsteiner
(177 pounds) and Kirk Trost (190 pounds) along with junior
heavyweight Walt Dunayczan - should provide much-
needed consistency in the long road to the Big Ten and NCAA
meets in March.
Not one to count victories before they are hatched, Bahr is
cautiously optimistic, despite the talent at his disposal.
"We aren't making any predictions at this point, but we did
have some goals we would like to achieve. One of them is to
make some believers out of the fans down in Oklahoma."
