'M' icers rebound to

douse Flames

By RICK KAPLAN
A low third period intensity level
leveled the hockey team Friday night,
forcing Michigan to settle for a
weekend split with Illinois-Chicago at
Yost Ice Arena.
Leading 4-3 entering the final period
in the opener, the Wolverines yielded
two goals in the first three minutes,
and went on to lose 6-4. Michigan
bounced back with a 7-4 win Saturday.
THE FLAMES caught fire early in
Friday's third period, and the
Wolverines got burned. Paul Tory
batted a rebound past Michigan
goalie Tim Makris to tie the score at
2:16, and 29 seconds later Flame
captain Mike Merch put Illinois-
Chicago ahead for good.
"THOSE TWO quick goals gave
them a life," said Michigan coach Red
Berenson. "They took it to us the rest of
the period."
The rest of the period was a study in
frustration for Michigan as it tried to
come back. A Wolverine power play
late in the frame was one of the worst
ever, as the Flames eirectively
forechecked, keeping the puck in
Michigan's end almost the entire
penalty. Illinois-Chicago outshot
Michigan, 3-0, while shorthanded.
"Nobody seemed to want the puck,"
said Michigan defenseman Myles
O'Connor. "Nobody wanted to take
control out there.
' "I THINK we were just expecting to
beat them. We were 4-0 in our

Saturday, 7-4. think we were just looking ahead to a

victory."
The third period collapse may have
been caused by "a lack of confiden-
ce," said senior forward Chris
Seychel. "We're a lot better than we
think we are."
Illinois-Chicago was not more con-
fident than Michigan, but it was cer-
tainly more emotional. "You can't
play college athletics without
emotion," said UIC coach Val
Belmonte. "In the third period, we
really came out determined to win.
"I THOUGHT our forechecking
worked very well," Belmonte said.
"It allowed us to bottle Michigan up in
its own end and force their defen-
semen to make mistakes."
There was no mistaking the dif-
ference in Michigan's intensity on
Saturday. The power play worked
well, as the Wolverines converted on
five of 11 manpower-advantage op-
portunities in the series. Sophomore
defenseman Jeff Norton scored two
goals for the second straight game.
"Our team play was better
tonight," said Berenson after the
second game. "We had more effort
from more players. I thought we
looked more like a team tonight."
MICHIGAN'S defense played one of
its best games of the season, despite
using only five players due to injuries.
Illinois-Chicago managed just 21 shots
on net in the game, and only three in
the second period. The strong defen-
sive play helped freshman goalie Bob
Lindgren, as he was rarely tested.
"From the forwards to the defen-
semen to the goalie, it was a much
better defensive game," said center
Todd Brost.
"We were picking guys up well,"
said defenseman Todd Carlile. "The
forwards helped out a great deal
coming back. That makes our job a lot
easier."

NORTON, who was struggling
defensively, had a superb all-around
game. "That was the best game I've
ever seen him play in his life," said
Seychel.
"Yes, I think it definitely was my
best game," said Norton. "I've been
in a sophomore slump, and hopefully
I'm starting to break out of it."
Breaking with tradition, Berenson
moved Norton to* left wing on the
power play, and put Seychel at the
point. Norton took advantage of the
switch, scoring three power play
goals in the series.
"I'VE BEEN playing forward
most of my life," the Acton, Mass.
native said. "It's nice to get back up
there."
The win pushed Michigan back up in
the CCHA standings. The Wolverines
are currently tied for fifth with
Illinois-Chicago and Ohio State, and
they trail fourth place Ferris State by

BY JOE EWING
Special to the Daily
MINNEAPOLIS - Even if Michigan doesn't win
the Big Ten title and go to the Rose Bowl, the
- Wolverines still should be playing someplace warm
on New Year's Day.
Representatives from many of the post-season
bowl games have been keeping close tabs on the
Wolverines all season and with the way things look,
Bo Schembechler and company could be making a
choice between a couple of different post-season
contests when bids are extended this Saturday.
SELECTION committee members from the Cot-
ton and Sugar Bowls, which with the Orange and
Rose Bowl make up the four major post-season con-
tests, have been regulars the past several weeks at
Michigan games and were anxious to talk to
Schembechler after his team blew out Minnesota on

id for top I
Saturday. A represenative from the Sunkist Fiesta
Bowl, which like the big four is played on January 1,
was also on hand, as were delegates from the
Florida Citrus, Cherry, Liberty, All-American and
Holiday Bowls.
If the Wolverines can beat Ohio State this
weekend, it's likely they will be spending New
Year's in either Dallas or New Orleans.
"THIS MICHIGAN team is tough," said Ed
Czekaj, a rep. for the Cotton Bowl which is played in
Dallas, Texas. "They're the best I've seen this year."
The Cotton Bowl pits the Southwest Conference
champion against an at large team. According to
Czekaj the 15-man selection committee for the at
large team will meet tomorrow morning in Dallas to
make it's top two choices.

bowl bi~ds
The Wolverines are also on the list of finalists for
an at large bid at the Sugar Bowl, which is played in
New Orleans against Southeastern Conference's top
team. According to delegate Henry Boldenheim, the
Sugar Bowl has representatives looking at Penn.
State, Ohio State and Iowa as well as the
Wolverines. Boldenheim would not comment on
when this week the final decision would be made.
"The people who are at the schools know what's
going on," Boldenheim said. "I'd rather not say
anything about it just now."
However, Michigan has made no deals with
anyone just yet.
"We have no deals and no committments right
now," said Michigan Athletic Director Doni
Canham. "We have no contracts with anybody."

Michigan matmen maul Open

By SCOTT SHAFFER
No team scores were kept, but it
was easy to see that the Wolverine
wrestlers dominated the action at
Saturday's Eastern Michigan Open.
Of the ten weight classes, Michigan
won seven and finished second twice.
Kirk Trost of Michigan, the number
one ranked heavyweight in the nation,
GRIDDE PICKS
John Makinen has done it. He has
beaten two-time defending Griddes
champion Tim Berry with a stellar
18-2 mark. Makinen will receive his
choice of a Pizza Express full-tray
Sicilian pizza, or Chicago stuffed piz-
za, or whole sub sandwich, and a
Dooley's guest pass, good for two.

won his division by decisioning the
nation's eighth-ranked heavyweight,
Jeff Reinder of Toledo.
THE TEAM'S other co-captain,
Kevin Hill, reigned supreme in the 167
pound class by defeating Purdue's Joe
Urso, 3-1.
In the 134 division, third ranked
John Fisher decisioned Dan Matauch
of Michigan State 7-6.
Michigan head coach Dale Bahr
praised Fisher after the match, "John
was voted Outstanding Freshman in
the Nation last year and today he
picked up right where he left off."
WHILE THE performances of
veterans Trost, Hill and Fisher were
expected, Bahr received a very
pleasant surprise from the victory of
freshman Joe Pantaleo in the 158
pound class. Pantaleo beat the second
ranked 158 pounder in the nation, Dave

Lilovich of Purdue.
"You never hope a freshman can
help immediately. But when they do,
it's a tremendous plus. Joe's perfor-
mance makes us a lot tougher in the
middle weights," said Bahr.
Based on Saturday's performance,
the Wolverines most solid unit has to
be their 190 pound wrestlers.
Michigan placed first, second and
fourth in that division, with Scott
Rechsteiner (ranked fourth in the
nation) pinning fellow Wolverine
Jerry Curby in the finals.
The two other Wolverine winners
were William Waters (118 class) and
Rickey Moore (142).
Bahr feels that his team dominated
the action in Ypsianti, "Had team
scores been kept, we definitely would
have won the tournament. Purdue and
Michigan State were far behind."

Although the Wolverines should
celebrate their outstanding perfor-
mance on Saturday, they won't have
much time in which to do so. Next
Saturday and Sunday the grapplers
will travel to Dayton for the Ohio
Open.
