No one, especially around these
parts, ever wanted to accuse
Michigan of having any similarity to
Ohio State. But when the hockey team
travels to Columbus this weekend for
a series with the Buckeyes, the
similarities will become pain-
Both teams are two games under
.500 - Michigan at 5-7 and OSU at 6-8.
Both teams suffer from a general lac-
k of defensive support. And, most im-
portantly, both coaches realize the
records have come as a result of their
own mistakes rather than opponent's
"I'M NOT that much impressed
with the play of the other teams," said
Ohio State head coach Jerry Welsh,
who is in his tenth year at the helm of
the Buckeyes. "We're plagued by a
lack of defensive play, making
blaring errors and giving up three or
four quick goals in a period."
"We have not been completely out-
played," said Michigan head coach
Red Berenson, despite the fact the
Wolverinesare 0-6 on the road, in-
cluding a two-game sweep by Lake
Superior last weekend. "I'll give Lake
Superior credit, but most of their
goals were a result of bad plays on our
The bad plays will have to go if
Michigan is to take one or both games
from the buckeyes. Having allowed 71
goals, the Wolverines are second to
last in the conference in goals
allowed, just ahead of - you guessed
it - Ohio State, which has allowed a
whopping 82 goals over its 14 games
this season. Buckeye goalies Bob
Krautsak and Roger Breedon have a
goals-against average close to six.
"OUR DEFENSIVE problems) are
less of the goalies' fault than the
defense," said Welsh, noting that
Krautsak was named CCHA player of
the week two weeks ago against
Miami of Ohio. Still, the Buckeyes
allowed seven first period goals last
weekend in a 11-4 loss to Ferris State,
and have allowed the second most
power-play goals in the league (21).
Berenson, too, sees defense and
goalkeeping as the key to the series.
Offense gets the most publicity, but
what costs you games is defense,"
Berenson said, whose squad took
three out of four last year from Ohio
State including a sweep at Columbus.
"There's so many players in the game
that can put it in the net. We can't get
involved in a shootout in the other
MICHIGAN GOALIES Tim Makris
and Bob Lindgren will get shot at by a
Buckeye attack that features no stars,
but is characterized by balance. Their
leading scorer, center Rick Brebant,
has 20 points (13-7), and is followed by
Jeff Madill with 19 (11-8). What the
Wolverines will not have to fear is the
Ohio State power play, which has only
scored 16 times in over 100 attempts.
Michigan will counter with Brad
Jones (11-14-25), who is third in the
league in scoring, and, on the power
play, defenseman Jeff Norton, who
has been moved up on the unit from
the point and has responded, having
scored seven goals and nine assists.
Also hot is sophomore wing Brad Mc-
Caughey, who scored two goals and
two assists against Lake Superior.
The Wolverines can throw all the of-
fensive firepower it wants at the
Buckeyes, but if there is no consisten-
cy, then even Wayne Gretzky can do
Michigan no good.
"We've played well early in
games,"'said Berenson, "but there's a
confidence lull at some point in the
game, usually the second period.
Sometimes I wish there was no in-

The final two matches of the season
bear special importance for a
Wolverine team that has compiled a 5-
11 Big Ten record.
Victories over Ohio State and In-
diana at the CCRB this Friday and
Saturday at 7 p.m. would put the
Wolverines above the .500 mark which
they've "been shooting for."
LAST YEAR'S co-cellar dwellers
also have a chance to put a third team
(Iowa) behind them in the Big Ten
standings. Michigan currently stands
a solid eighth, ahead of Wisconsin and
winless Michigan State.
The Wolverines set the scene for
this weekend's matches by squeaking
past Michigan State last Tuesday, 3-2,
and by licking Eastern Michigan, 3-1.
As usual, Andrea Williams
highlighted the road wins with her
tremendous hitting ability. She recor-

After the way the Western Michigan

of a team that finished 19-10 last year,
14-4 in the Mid-American conference.
Though they finished second during
the regular season to Central
Michigan, the Broncos scored a 76-63
victory over the Chippewas to win the
MAC tournament, and received their
first-ever NCAA tourney bid.
A trio of juniors and a sophomore
returning from last year's squad has
left Western coach Jim Hess in an en-
viable position. A pre-season poll by
MAC coaches has the Broncos rated
number one in the conference.
All-America candidate Tracy Wells
leads the squad, having both the
ability to fill the net and dish off
assists. The 5-6 guard averaged 14.6
