Grapplers outclass Lehigh
By JON HARTMANN
A win is a win. It wasn't the most deft
display of wrestling technique ever, but
the battered Michigan wrestling team
did defeat the Lehigh Engineers last
night at Crisler Arena, 27-15.
William Waters got the Blue off to a
quick start with a pin of Engineer
rookie Andy Schantz at 118 pounds.
Waters was awesome as he piled up a
10-0 lead before putting Schantz away.
FRESHMAN standout, John Fisher
then defeated Todd Cassan 13-7 in a
match that was closer than expected
for most of the way. Cassan did a good
job of staying out of Fisher's clutches
as he avoided being pinned.
Wolverine captain Joe McFarland
then received an unexpected gift from
Lehigh coach Thad Turner when Tur-
ner decided to move Jim Frick from 134
to 142 poundswto replace Lehigh star
Peter Yozzo, who was out with a sore
throat. So Lehigh had to give Mc-
Farland the win by forfeit at 134 poun-
ds. This was good news for McFarland,
who should appreciate some more time
for his injured knee to recover.
However, Turner's switch forced
Rickey Moore, Michigan's starting 142-
pounder to suit up in a hurry. Moore
had expected Yozzo's forfeit to give him
the free win and, according to
Wolverine coach Dale Bahr, didn't even
have his singlet on when the forfeit was
announced at 134. But Moore dominated
Waters, Fisher lead
his match, forcing Frick to default with
an injured shoulder. Bahr was pleased
with Rickey's performance, adding
that he would have won even if Frick
AS EXPECTED, Michigan's major
problems came in the middle weights.
At 150 pounds, Lehigh's C.J. Mears
easily took care of Wolverine freshman
Guy Russo, subbing for the ailing Tony
Latora. In similar fashion, Don For-
chione, Kevin Hill's replacement at 167
pounds, was pinned in the third period
by Engineer Derek Stamets. Bahr said
that Forchione and Russo, having sat
on the sidelines for so long, weren't
really ready to compete when
Michigan's injuries cropped up.
Bahr was also disappointed with
Scott Rechsteiner's performance in
squeaking by his opponent at 177.
Rechsteiner, who is recovering from a
sprained ankle and an injured elbow
"just didn't have it in the last period"
according to Bahr. Bahr suggested that
Rechsteiner could have overeaten
following his weigh-in.
cellent chance of placing in this year's
national tournament. Diekel defeated
But Kirk Trost brought the home fans
to their feet with a dramatic, 7-6 victory
over Lehigh veteran Bernie Brown in
the 190-pound showdown that ended the
match. Despite a controversial stalling
call by the referee, Trost pulled a
reversal late in the third period that
gave him the win.
Bahr attributed the subpar perfor-
mance of much of the team to problems
caused by the Holiday layoff, citing the
insufficient number of workouts
Looking towards the future, Bahr ad-
ded, "We can't start to push too early. .
. Once we get through the next four-
five-six matches, then we can start
working on conditioning. When you
wrestle a lot, you don't get enough
workouts." Michigan's dual meet
record is now, 4-1, 1-0 in the Big Ten.

Here's a riddle: what's the difference
between a third- and an eighth-place
team in the Central Collegiate Hockey
Answer: about seven points.

last-placed teams separated by only 12
So with teams playing each other
several times during the season, it's no
wonder standings are hardly etched in
The Wolverines currently find them-
selves dominating the eighth position in
the CCHA heading into their home-and-
home series this weekend against
Bowling Green The-Faleons-occupy the-
third spot (or the first part of the riddle
for those who can't comprehend hockey
humor), and last season's NCAA
champions lead Michigan by only seven
points. A Maize and Blue weekend
sweep would probably lift Michigan in-
to sixth or fifth place, as well on the way
to head coach Red Berenson's coveted
fourth-place finish and home-ice advan-
ttage in the CCHA playoffs.
"I HOPE we can stay in the pack," said
Berenson, "we have to stay out of last
~and preferably we'll finish fourth."
Still, with an eye on post-season
possibilities, Berenson's task at hand is
to get his club playing consistent, win-
"We've got to do it for ourselves,"
said the former St. Louis Blues head
coach. "We've got to forget about our
opponents and play sixty minutes of

WITH STABILITY on his mind,
Berenson will switch up his lines
slightly tonight in an effort to get more
balance from each line. The changes,
Berensoni noted, should assure at least
one defensive-minded offensive player
on the ice throughout the game.
Berenson will also hope that the

and generate some scoring after

There is little doubt the Wolverines
are prepared to jump back into the

foreigners-Japan and the Soviet
Union-in less than a week.
FRESHMAN right-wing Joe Lock-
wood, still flying high from his last-minute
breakaway goal that sent the Russians
back where they belong Sunday night,
feels Michigan will "come out flying
this weekend. We're coming off a big
win (5-4, over the Soviets) and
everyone's gotta be up. We've basically
got to hustle and put it to them."
Senior center and team captain Ray
Dries concurred. "We've got to play
three solid periods," he said. "We're
going in realizing they (the Falcons)
will be pumped up. They want revenge
(after Michigan handed Bowling Green
a 12-5 drubbing in the consolation game
of the Great Lakes Invitational), so

OF COURSE, there'll be another for-
ce on the ice attempting to prevent the
Wolverines from doing what they so
deftly did the first few weeks of the
season-put the puck in the net.
"We have to play much tighter defen-
sively," said Falcon head coach Jerry
York, whose club owns an 11-9 record in
CCHA play, 11-13 overall. "Michigan ga
ve us a good old-fashioned licking (at
the GLI), so we need good goaltending
and have to be consistent."
York's goaltending shouldn't be a
problem. Sophomore Gary Kruzich, an
Oak Lawn, Illinois native, presently
ranks as the third-best netminder in the
CCHA with a 3.41 goals-against-
average. Kruzich guided the Falcons to
the championship last season, allowing
just 2.87 goals per game.
But according to Berenson, great
goaltending or a stepped-up defense
shouldn't frustrate the Wolverines.

teams, we just have to play well the
