ICERS SPLIT WITH TOP-RANKED BOWING GREEN
Blue crests past Falcons
By SCOTT G. MILLER
The space shuttle may have had
trouble getting off the ground recen-
tly, but the Michigan hockey team
took its own space ship to the stars
Friday night. The Wolverines came
back from a 4-1 deficit to defeat
Bowling Green, the number one team
in the nation, 7-4 at Bowling Green Ice
Unfortunately for the Wolverines,
Bowling Green shut off the power to
the Michigan shuttle Saturday night
at Yost Arena. Michigan returned to
earth as the Falcons won 7-3.
MICHIGAN'S blast off was fueled
by the outstanding play of goalie Tim
Makris. The sophomore stopped 38
shots in the loss and 25 in the victory.
Many were of the spectacular variety.
"(We thought) Michigan's weakest
part is their goaltenders. He played
very well," said Falcon goalie Gary
Kruzich. "He surprised the whole
team. The big thing was shoot on the
goaltender, shoot on the goaltender.
He came up with a lot of nice saves."
"Makris is playing great," said
Michigan coach Red Berenson. "If he
can continue to play at that level, we
are going to be a team to contend
with. At least we should be able to
reach close to our full potential as a
THE WOLVERINES reached their
full potential Friday with out of this
world play by some unlikely heroes.
With Michigan trailing 4-3 in the third
period, Chris Seychel came flying
down the left wing and rifled a slap-
per. The shot hit Kruzich in the upper
body and freshman Mike Cusack was
in front to bat in the high rebound for
the biggest goal in his young college
career. The rebound was almost too
"The puck came up, the goalie was
down, and I tapped it in," said
Cusack. "My stick was at chest level,
but I had to wait a little bit (for the
referee's signal). I was confident."
Another hero was right winger Joe
Lockwood. The sophomore took a per-
fect pass from Billy Powers, who dug
the puck out of a corner, and fired a
low shot from the slot to beat Kruzich
for the game winner. "Joe Lockwood
has a knack for big goals and that was
one of them," said Berenson.
PAT GOFF was the hero of a defen-
se tested by the academic ineligibility
of blue liner Gary Lorden. Michigan
played mostly four defensemen the
entire weekend. Goff responded to the
challenge. "I thought Pat Goff as a
senior came up with maybe one of his
finest weekends," commented Beren-
Bowling Green coach Jerry York
was not surprised by Michigan's ex-
"Michigan generally plays very
well against us. Their six or seven top
players are as good as anyone has in
the conference," said York. "Defen-
sively, I think (Todd) Carlile, (Myles)
O'Connor, and (Jeff) Norton are top
players. When Seychel, (Tom) Stiles,
(Todd) Brost, and (Brad) Jones are
going, that is an impressive team.
"I FIND it hard to figure what their
record is because when they play us
they do well."
Bowling Green grounded the
Wolverines Saturday by forcing
Michigan's best players into
penalties. Michigan's lack of depth
cost them when Norton was given a
game disqualification for spearing in
the second period. Also, Jones, the
team's leading scorer, was given a ten
minute misconduct early in the third
"We have a few players that stand
out such as Jones and Seychel. They
invite player's going after them being
as good as they are," said team cap-
tain Frank Downing. "I think that
(the Falcons) were doing that. I heard
some of the words exchanged, and I
know they were looking for those
THE FALCON power play that had
not scored in six attempts Friday
rebounded Saturday to tally three
goals in another six attempts. "The
key to the game was capitalizing on
the power play," said York. "We
moved the puck much better tonight."
The Wolverines vaulted to an early
2-0 lead in the first period on goals by
Lockwood and Downing. Michigan
could not convert other opportunities
and allowed Bowling Green to stay in

than a minute to play in the game.

MIAMI (AP) - The New England
Patriots turned their "team of
destiny" label into reality yesterday,
getting 24 points from four fumble
recoveries and three short touchdown
passes from Tony Eason to qualify for
the Super Bowl by beating the Miami
Dolphins 31-14 in the American Foot-
ball Conference championship game.
The victory ended an 18-game New
England losing streak in the Orange
Bowl and was the first defeat in AFC
title games for the Dolphins, who
were hoping to qualify for a record
sixth Super Bowl appearance.
IN BEATING Miami in the Orange,,
Bowl for the first time since 1966, the
Patriots became the first team ever to '
qualify for the Super Bowl by winning
three playoff games on the road.

Krug spent most of the match in a
four-corners offense, content to stall
his way to the loss.
Relief from an otherwise
depressing loss to Clarion was
provided by heavyweight Kirk Trost
and Clarion coach Bob Bubb. With the
match already won, Bubb decided to
save his regular heavyweight and in-
stead sent out Sam Thomas as
designated sacrificial lamb. Thomas
was fortunate to score in his 16-1 loss.
