NO vacation: Icers
win two, lose three
By ADAM OCHLIS
For a team that has won the
dames it was supposed to win and
~lost the games it was supposed to
ip)e (with an occasional upset) the
holiday vacation proved no dif-
frent for the Michigan hockey
team as it posted a 2-3 record over
the past three weeks.
Incfuded in those three losses was
* 9-1 exhibition defeat against a
powerful Team Czechoslovakia.
THE biggest games over the holiday,
tlwever, were those against CCHA
rial Ferris State which earlier
this season swept the Wolverines
ap in Big Rapids.
Obviously, there was some
paying back to do and Michigan
°&d not forget the earlier series
=tlling to a 10-3 victory over the
iulldogs last Friday night.
"Brad Jones, Billy Powers and
Iyrad McCaughey all notched two
goals apiece, goalie Tim Makris
topped 29 of 32 shots and a 4-0 sec-
ond period helped lead the
Wolverines (8-12 CCHA, 9-13
'6*erall) to their first victory in
1986. Michigan coach Red
Berenson was still worried,
wever, about how his team
ould perform the following night.
"We came out and played very
A 11 the first half of the game, but
we still gave up too many scoring
chances," said Berenson. "And as
much as we ran up the score, I just
didn't feel it was as great a game
as the score might indicate."
Berenson's worries were
realistic, it would turn out, as
Ferris took the second game of the
series, 6-2. Makris again played
well in goal, but according to
Berenson, his team might have
gotten a bit cocky after the pasting
it laid on Ferris the night before.
As college hockey so often does it
brings a lot of emotion into play
and our team was so high after
(Friday's) game, they couldn't get
back down. We were essentially
overconfident in the second game.
"They were the better team on
that night," admitted Berenson.
The Wolverines also played in its
16th Great Lakes Invitational
Tournament over the break losing
in the first round to defending
NCAA champion, RPI (Rensselaer
Polytechnic Institute) and beating
Michigan Tech in the consolation
game of the annual tournament
held in Detroit. Michigan State
won the FLI with a rather easily
and surprising 7-3 victory over
BERENSON was relatively
pleased with the way his team
played against RPI despite the 8-3
"The first game against RPI
was a good game and although we
got down two goals in the first
period, the second period was one
of those periods where we could
have won it 4-1 or lost it 4-1."
Unfortunately for the
Wolverines, the latter took place
and led by Mark Jooris's five goals
and two assists, the Engineers
cruised into the finals.
Michigan will try to move up in
the conference standings this
weekend when it takes on Bowling
Green (17-3), the country's number
one team, in a home-and-home
series with the Falcons. Friday's
contest takes place in Bowling

The start of the new year meant the n
start of the dual-meet season for the E
Michigan wrestling team. The season S
started on a mixed note, however, as R
the Wolverines dropped their first e
match at Lehigh, 26-18 Monday night.-s
The good news for the Wolverines B
came from both ends of the lineup. R
FRESHMAN 118-pounder Doug s
Wyland, who had ranked among the ti
pleasant surprises of this season im-
proved his overall record to 21-6 with
a 14-1 decision over Rick Hartman.
Senior heavyweight Kirk Trost con-
tinued the steady performance that
earned him a second-place finish in
the NCAA Championships last season.
He decisioned Bernie Brown 11-3.
His record now also stands at 21-6
The problems for the Wolverines
came in the weight classes in bet-
FRESHMAN John Moore failed to
score and dropped the 126-pound mat-
ch to Mike Price 10-0. Despite the loss
his record is still 12-9.
Coach Dale Bahr expected John
Fisher, last year's Freshman of the
Year according to Amateur Wrestling
News, to be this year's stalwart at 134
pounds. Instead, a season-ending
shoulder injury has knocked Fisher
out and forced freshman Kyle Garcia
to step up immediately into the star-
Garcia, yet to make people forget
Fisher, was pinned at seven minutes
of his match with Jim Frick. Garcia's
record dropped to 1-2.
MICHIGAN fared better in the
eavier weight classed where it had
more experience than then
Engineers. At 167 pounds, senior
teve Richards decisioned Kern
Ritiney 6-4 in the closest match of the
vening. Co-captain Kevin Hill had a
lightly easier time with Eyvind
Boyesen downing him 8-2 at 177.
Richards' and Hill's records now
tand at a solid 15-8 and 10-3 respec-

WENDY Bradetich led a balanced

Except for a 73-58 setback to Iowa
