"M' looking to ground Falcons
Wolverine defense to be tested by Bowling Green

By MARK BOROWSKY
As much as Wolverine hockey coach
Red Berenson loves to see his icers
put the puck in the net - they have
scored 24 goals in 4 games - he knows
that this weekend's series with
Bowling Green will depend on defen-
se.
'I think that we can score goals,"
said Berenson whose club is 2-2 and
tied for fourth in the CCHA. "But we
don't want to put ourselves in a
position where we have to score goals.
We have to keep the games close and
not put ourselves in a hole."
IN LAST weekend's series with
Ferris State the Wolverines got them-
selves in a deep hole, as they fell
behind early in both contests and
eventually lost, 7-6 on Friday night
and 10-5 on Saturday. They did prove
that they are capable of offense. But
on defense Michigan played as if,
well, it was full of holes.
And if Ferris State could score 17
goals on a porous Wolverine team,
then the possibility for Bowling Green
is downright scary. The Falcons, 3-1
and ranked 7th in the nation, return
six players who scored 30 points or
more in 1984-85 and have a legitimate
collegiate player-of-the-year can-
didate in senior right wing Jamie

Wansbrough. Such facts, however, do
not scare Berenson.
"It's important for us to bounce
back (from last weekend), but we're
looking better defensively," Berenson
said. "Bowling Green is a big,
physical team. We're going to have to
be hitting and skating with them (in

order to win)."
THE FOCUS for Michigan will be
stopping Wansbrough, but the
Falcons have other guns to pick up the
slack. Junior transfer Mark Lori
scored 23 goals and added 23 assists
last season at Northeastern Univer-
sity in Boston, and center Paul
Ysebaert put up an impressive 55
points last season - as a freshman.
Still, Bowling Green relies on Wan-
sbrough for scoring and leadership.
The senior from Toronto led the
Falcons with 37 goals and 33 assists
for a total of 70 points.
"He's a very gifted player, one of
the elite in college hockey," said
Bowling Green coach Jerry York, who
should know a standout when he sees
one. Bowling Green won the 1983-84
national championship, and York has
coached seven players who have
made it to the NHL. "He's improved
from last year in all areas of his
game. His leadership and experience
is very valuable to us."
"HE'S AN opportunist type
player," Berenson said of Wan-
brough. "He's not a dominating type
player, but he's always picking up
goals."
Bowling Green's offense isn't the

only reason that Michigan has to
worry. The Falcons have allowed only
14 goals this year, including six
allowed in two games by the same
Ferris State squad that scored 17
against Michigan. Junior goalie Gary
Kruzich anchors the Bowling Green
defense, and is the only goalie in the'
CCHA who has played all four games
and leads the league with 125 saves.
Last season, the junior from Oak
Lawn, Illinois, posted a 16-12-0 record
with a 3.97 goals against average.
Michigan will test Kruzich with it's
heretofore potent offense and the
Wolverine's have yet to face a team of
Bowling Green's caliber. Although
wing Tom Stiles is second in the CCHA
in scoring (4-7-11) and Brad Jones and
Billy Powers aren't far behind, Miami
and Ferris State aren't being accused
of being hockey powerhouses these
days.
One advantage Michigan will have
is that Bowling Green has not played
well at Yost throughout the years. It's
record there is 3-10, while Michigan is
only 4-7 at Bowling Green's State Ice
Arena. Last year the teams split the
four 'games, each winning at home.
History, then predicts a split. Unless
the Michigan defense has other ideas.

SPOR TS OF THE DAILY:
Royals dump Cards to force a sixth game

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Kansas City
speed connection of Lonnie Smith and
Willie Wilson came alive last night,
leading the Royals to a 6-1 victory
over St. Louis in Game 5 of the World
Series and signaling that time had not
yet run out for the American League
champions.
Their backs had been to the wall for
so long they had written graffiti on it,
Hal McRae had said. On this night,
the graffiti read: "Not just yet."
THE VICTORY cut the Cardinals'
advantage in the best-of-seven Series
to three games-to-two heading back to
Kansas City for Game 6 tomorrow
night.
The Royals will send left-hander
Charlie Leibrandt, the hard-luck loser
of Game 2, against Cardinals right-
hander Danny Cox, who won Game 2
with the aid of four ninth-inning runs.
With Danny Jackson pitching in and
out of trouble despite allowing only
five hits and striking out five, the Nos.
one and two hitters for the Royals
suddenly sparked a dormant Kansas
City offense. Smith had two hits and
scored a pair of runs, and Wilson had

two hits, including a triple, and a pair
of RBI.
The Cardinals, meanwhile, seemed
more like the team showing pressure.
Slick-fielding shortstop Ozzie Smith
made an error that led to a run, and
fan favorite Tito Landrum had a
rough day. Landrum let runners move
up to second and third on a flyout in
the first, leading to one run;
misplaying a fly ball into a double,
leading to the game-winning run in
the second; and letting another ball go
over his head in the ninth for an RBI
double.
The Royals scored once in the first
inning against Bob Forsch and added
three more in the second, beginning
with the first controversial call of the
Series in a disputed play at home
plate argued vehemently between
Cardinals Manager Whitey Herzog
and umpire John Shulock.
Bulls acquire Gervin
SAN ANTONIO, Texas (AP) -
George Gervin, the "Iceman" who
has sparked the San Antonio Spurs'

scoring attack since 1974, was traded
yesterday to the Chicago Bulls for
forward David Greenwood.
In moving to Chicago, Gervin will
be playing under his former Spurs'
coach, Stan Albeck.
Not again,
Dome roof cracks
PONTIAC (AP) - Tiny cracks have
been discovered in one-fourth of the
sockets holding the steel support
cables on the Pontiac Silverdome's

new roof, stadium officials said.
The Pontiac Silverdome Authority
authorized repairs on Wednesday that
architects and engineers said were
needed for nine of the 36 sockets
where cables are attached to the con-
crete ring of the 10-acre inflated roof.
"This (the cracks) should be taken
care of, but should not be a cause of
alarm under normal operating
stresses," said Kris Hamilton, a
representative of the New York City
engineering firm of Geiger
Associates.

GRIDDE PICKS

An apology and explanation is due
all Griddes readers. Early Wed-
nesday night, a crazed Reagan Youth
humanoid sacked the Griddes offices,
and replaced yesterday's bit of light-
hearted Griddes fluff with right-wing
propaganda. Yesterday's writings in
no way represent the views of the
Griddes staff.
File your lawsuit before midnight
tonight at the Daily. Despite the take-
over, the winner still receives the
same non-partisan prizes as always
- your choice of a full-tray Sicilian
pizza, Chicago stuffed pizza or whole
sub sandwich from Pizza Express,
and a Dooley's guest pass, good for
two.
