Soo Lakers upset

less han two minutes later on a score off
a rebound and Butler grabbed his
second tally of the night at 13:21.

Despite his squad's 13-24-1 record, Coach Red Berenson has high hopes for more active role, and he is looking for freshmen who can make an im-
the future. Next season, Berenson wants his juniors and seniors to play a mediateimpact toimprove the team.


Red searches for teamleadership

tallies two

Editor's note: Red Berenson
recently completed his first season
as Michigan hockey coach when the
Wolverines were eliminated from
the CCHA playoffs last weekend.
Daily hockey writers Chris Gerbasi
and Tom Keaney talked to Berenson
about the past season and the future
of Michigan hockey. This is the
second part of a two-part series.
Daily: Are the sophomores and
juniors of this year going to be able to
take an active leadership role next
Berenson: The chemistry of the team
can change with just one player leaving
or coming. If we have 6-10 new players
coming in...you saw yourself Norton's
impact on the team. Next year, some
other players will come in and con-
tribute, maybe not as much, but maybe
they will. The sophomores this year,
(Brad) Jones, (Bruce) Macnab, (John)
Bjorkman-it's hard to say how they'll
react. Jones had a much improved year
pointwise, but whether he notches out a
new role for himself...we'll have to wait
and see.

I've played on teams, like my first
year at Detroit with Gordie Howe, there
was something missing on the team,
but when he left, a lot of the guys rose
up. It was kind of like standing under a
huge tree. But as soon as he left,
Mickey Redmond scored 50 goals and
became a great player. That can hap-
pen. We had some seniors and each
played a part in leadership in their own
way. But next year, you could see a
whole new blend. Leadership is not
something you put on someone's
shoulders, it just emerges.
{ Daily: Before the season you had
hoped that certain guys would score
more than they had in the past. Are
there any players that you were wrong
Berenson: I can't say that I was
wrong about them because I didn't
really know about them. But based
upon our preseason scrimmages, I felt
that some of the players had potential
to score more than they showed this
season. I think overall most of the
players improved this year, but there
were a couple of disappointments.
Daily: What for you were the
highlights and lowlights of the season?
Berenson: The game against Spartak
was great for us, not just because we
won, but because of the two games we
had just lost (the two previous nights at
Ferris State the Wolverines lost 9-7 af-
ter leading 7-2, and 9-0). That was an
all-time low. If there was a low and high
in the season, they both came the same
Individually, my feeling and con-
fidence about the team is documented
by the play of some of the freshemen.
The future of the team is in the fresh-

men this year and the freshmen coming
in this year.
Daily: The general sentiment of the
coaches around the league is that the
refereeing was somewhat less than
adequate this year. Is there any chance
that something will be done to correct
that in the near future?
Berenson: I don't know. I won't have
a feel for that until the league meeting.
But I'm with you. The refereeing was
erratic, inconsistent and unpredictable.

Daily: Is it that the good refs are
being taken by other leagues?
Berenson: I don't know. I don't know
where they get the referees from, I
don't know how long they've been here
or what happens to them whenthey
leave. I don't know much about the of-
ficiating except that I don't like it.
Daily: Will there be more of an effort
made to schedule games with the
WCHA or other out of conference

'Individually, my feeling and confidence about the
team is documented by the play of some of the
freshmen. The future of the team is in the freshmen
this year and the freshmen coming in this year.

If you'rea good referee, whenthe
games get tight, you call penalties
when there's a deliberate attempt to in-
jure, or a penalty that would eliminate
a scoring chance.
You saw it all year. Some of the
refereeing was just...but that was an
experience for me too. I have never
seen officiating that was so consistently
inconsistent. I don't know what the an-
swer is, and I don't know if the league is
as concerned about it as the coaches
are. So we'll have to wait and see on

Beren son:'We're really limited by
our schedule. We're allowed 38 games,
32 of which are in our own league.
There's two in the Great Lakes Tour-
nament, so we have four open dates.
RPI is coming here next year, so we
have one open weekend. The league
might change its requirements.
They're talking about bringing two
teams from Alaska into the league.
Personally I'd like to see a little more
freedom in our scheduling. I'd like to
play some of the teams from the
WCHA. Right now we have our hands


Netters shut out Calvin

There may not have been a broom at
the Track and Tennis Building yester-
day, but that didn't stop the women's
tennis team from sweeping all nine
matches from Calvin College in their
home opener. The win raised the
Wolverines' record to 2-1, while Calvin
left town with an 0-1 start.
Although the win came at the expense
of NCAA Division III opponents, it was
still impressive because the Wolverines
did not even lose a single set. Coach
Bitsy Ritt did not use Michigan's best
singles player, Paula Reichert, at all
esterday which makes the shutout
that muci'better.
WITH REICHERT out, the other
singles players had to move up a notch.
Freshman Leslie Mackey overcame
pregame nervousness to post a 6-3, 6-4
win over Calvin's Tawnie Knottnerus,
in first singles.
"This was the first time I played
singles at Michigan and I was pretty
nervous, but the win really helped my
confidence," Mackey said. Coach Ritt
was especially pleased with the way
Mackey used lob shots when her op-
ponents rushed the net.
Tina Basle, another freshman, made
her Michigan debut a victorious one,
disposing of Val Betten, 6-2, 6-2 in
second singles. She later teamed with
Lynn Wise to post a doubles victory.
Despite her two wins, the Florida
native was not pleased with her per-
"I MISSED a lot of shots," said
Basle. "Especially in the singles mat-

Boston Red Sox to a 3-2 exhibition
baseball victory over the Detroit Tigers
Boston scored two unearned runs off
Jack Morris in the first inning to put the
1984 World Series champions behind in
a hurry.
Boston on a fielder's choice grounder
that eliminated Dwight Evans, who had
been safe on a fielding error by Lou
Rice went to second on a passed ball
and scored on a double inside the bag at
third by Tony Armas. Armas scored on
Mike Easler's single to center giving

Boston a 2-0 lead.
With two out in the Detroit fourth,
Lance Parrish got the Tigers' first hit
when he lined a Mike Trujillo pitch over
the left field wall for a homer.
IN THE TIGERS' seventh, Rusty
Kuntz hit a double off Ed Glynn, took
third on Bob Melvin's single and scored
on Chris Pittaro's fielder's choice
grounder that forced Melvin, tying the
score 2-2.
Hoffman was safe in the eighth on a
fielder's choice grounder that forced
Ed Jurak. Hoffman went to second
when Bill Scherrer, 0-1, the third of four
Tiger pitchers, committed his second
balk, setting up Romine's double down
the right field line.
Glynn, 1-0, the fourth of five Boston
pitchers, worked the seventh inning and
picked up the victory while Mark Clear
