Netters topple Northwestern, Iowa

By JERRY MUTH
The weather may not have been lovely for the
men's tennis team last weekend, but the
Wolverines proved they were ready to take the
Big Ten by storm with a pair of 8-1 victories
over conference rivals Northwestern and Iowa.
Despite gusting winds and frigid tem-
peratures, the 20th-ranked Wolverines applied
the heat to Northwestern Friday on the outside
courts of the Track and Tennis building.
Freshman phenom Dan Goldberg ignited the
Michigan charge at number one singles, car-
ving out a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Northwestern's
Matt Akman with the precision of a Swiss wat-
chmaker.
THE REMAINING Michigan singles players
followed Goldberg's lead with straight set vic-
tories. Senior captain Jim Sharton contributed
a 6-3, 6-0 win at the number two slot while

junior Ed Filer volleyed his way to a 6-1, 6-4
victory over Northwestern's Scott Bindley and
Ann Arbor native Jon Morris pleased the
hometown folks, using a big serve to win 6-4, 6-3
at fifth singles.
Mike Pizzutello, another freshman, emerged
at the number six position. Although Pizzutello
was not part of the traveling squad on the
team's Texas trip, he played well back in
Michigan and claimed the last singles spot, ac-
cording to Eisner. He continued that trend pit-
ching in a 6-4, 6-3 win.
Michigan's performance in doubles was
almost as impressive, suffering its only set-
back at the number two slot. Royer and Morris
fell, 4-6, 7-5, 2-6, to Northwestern's Bindley and
Dan Christian.
CONTINUING BAD weather forced Satur-

day's match with Iowa indoors to the Liberty
Tennis and Fitness Club. Although Michigan
dumped the Hawkeyes, 8-1, the margin of vic-
tory in the individual matches wasn't as
decisive. Eisner credited Iowa, calling the
Hawkeyes "a good, solid team." But the
Wolverine mentor was most pleased with his
own team's performance. "We're working
hard on competing day after day," Eisner con-
tinued. "Everyday we have to be ready to
play."
Indeed the Wolverines came ready to play
against Iowa. The toughest matches of the day
involved Iowa freshman Mats Mamberg. The
Swede took Goldberg, the nation's twelfth-
ranked junior, to three sets before losing his
cool and the match, 2-6, 6-4, 2-6.
Mamberg teamed with Scot Shafer at third
doubles to gain an element of revenge,

sweeping Michigan's Brad Koontz and Chip
McColl, 6-3, 7-5.
EISNER CONCEDED the third Iowa doubles
team was strong, but added, "we just did not
play well at third doubles."
The Michigan coach, however, couldn't help
but smile. "It's important to get off to this kind
of start," he continued. "Our goal is to defend
the Big Ten Championship. I'm looking for con-
stant improvement-particularly mental.
Today was a good effort."
Senior JimNelson, Iowa's number three
singles player, was impressed with the
Wolverines. "They've got a lot of excellent
players and they're one of the top teams in the
Big Ten," he said. "The thing about Michigan
is that they're excellent from top to bottom."
The pair of wins lifted the Michigan's overall
record to 5-5 and 2-0 in the Big Ten.

... helps Wolverines reign

Batsmen upset Miami

MINNEAPOLIS (UPI) - There
was no iov in the Metrodome for
the Wolverines with Miami of
Florida taking a two-run lead in
the top of the ninth inning of the
championship game of the second
annual Wheaties college baseball
tournament yesterday.
But Casey was at bat and this
time he didn't strike out.
MICHIGAN rightfielder Casey
Close, batting with the bases
loaded, let the count go to 1-2. He
then put the next pitch over the left
field fence for a grand-slam homer
to win it for Michigan, 7-5.
Close redeemed himself for
allowing the Hurricanes' lead run
to score in the top of the inning by

throwing over the third baseman's
head. Miami scored twice to take a
5-3 lead.
Close was picked the Most
Valuable Player of the tournament
by reporters but the honor was
voted at the end of the regulation
inning-before his error and homer.
The No. 2-ranked Hurricanes,
defending NCAA champions, took
an early 2-0 lead but Michigan took
a 3-2 lead in the sixth with a two-
run double by Hal Morris.
Relief pitchers Greg Everson of
Michigan and Rick Raether of
Miami kept things under control
until the ninth. Everson got the win
and Raether the loss.

Wings top
Toronto,
4-2
By DUANE ROOSE
Special to the Daily
DETROIT - Closing out its worst
season in the club's 60 year history,
the Detroit Red Wings surprised their
loyal fans with a 4-2 victory over the
Toronto Maple Leafs last night.
Among the surprises were a Detroit
short-handed goal, a fairly impressive
Red Wing two-way performance, and,
of course, the victory.
The meaningless Detroit-Toronto
matchup drew 16,827 fans. And while
the Red Wings finished among the
league leaders in attendance, their 17-
57-6 record is easily the league's wor-
st.
DETROIT opened the scoring as
Doug Shedden set up an untouched
Kelly Kisio goal at 17:04 of the first
period. John Ogrodnick also assisted
on the goal, Kisio's 21st.
Less than two minutes later, Claude
Loiselle chipped in a blistering Mike
O'Connell slapshot to give the Wings a
2-0 lead. Red Wing champion Danny
Gare- also assisted on the goal,
Loiselle's seventh.
Ogrodnick deked the beleaguered
Maple Leaf goalie, Don Edwards, at
1:50 of the second period to give
Detroit a 3-0 lead. The goal, Ogrod-
nick's 38th, was unassisted.

By PAUL DODD
With two of its six top players
sidelined with injuries, the last thing
the women's tennis team needed was
matches with two of the best teams in
the Midwest.
Sure enough, both Miami of Ohio
and Northwestern rolled into the
Huron Valley Tennis club last
weekend, and, in less than 24 hours,
handed the hurting Wolverines a pair
of decisive defeats.
THE OTHERWISE disappointing
weekend was not a total loss for the
few loyal fans who sojourned to the
outback of Washtenaw County Satur-

day. Paula Reichart toppled NU's
Katrina Adams, currently the 26th
ranked collegiate player in the coun-
try, 7-6 (7-2), 6-4, for the only win in
the 8-1 loss.
"I think this is the first time I've
beaten a ranked player in college,"
beamed an obviously pleased
Reichert. "She was a little off her
game today, but I feel like I played
pretty well."
The doubles team of Monica Bor-
cherts and Susie Patlovich almost
pulled out a win over Kirsten Laux

and Kelly Boyse, but came up a little
short, falling 3-6, 6-2, 5-7. No other
Wolverines won more than two
games in a set.
Northwestern upped its overall
record to 12-3 overall and 2-0 in the Big
Ten, while the Wolverines fell to 7-9
and 1-4, respectively.
Despite a Reichert singles victory
and a Recheirt-Erin Ashare doubles
win Friday evening, the Redskins had
little trouble ploughing through the
rest of a make-shift Michigan squad in
a 7-2 triumph.

DETROIT, the worst penalty-killing
team in the league, got a rare short-
handed goal when O'Connell rapped
home a rebound at 4:10. Gare and
Loiselle assisted on the goal, O'Con-
nell's ninth.
Miroslav Frycer nudged in a loose
puck from the goal mouth for Toronto
at 12:50, making it 4-1. Walt Podduviiy
and Peter Ihnacak assisted on the
goal, Frycer's 32nd.
Toronto's Rick Vaive blasted home
a 25-foot slapshot after a fine set up by
Steve Thomas to make it 4-2. Borje
Salming also assisted on the goal,
Vaive's 33rd, which came at 17:22.
The third period had no scoring, but
Red Wing goalie Corrado Micalef, the

game's number one star, kept the
Leafs off the board with 14 of his 37
saves.
Toronto goes on to face the Chicago
Blackhawks in the first round of the
NHL playoffs this week. For the Red
Wings, a long summer lies ahead af-
ter their most disappointing season in
years.

little luck, the results could have been
better. But all things considered, it
was a solid effort.

Big Ten season, and returned home
with a split of the four-game series.
FRIDAY, MICHIGAN lost a 10-
inning, 2-1 nailbiter to the Hoosiers
before regrouping and winning the
nightcap, 3-0. The opener was lost by
a matter of seconds when Pam Craig
scored the winning run an instant
before Wolverine first baseman Mar-
tha Rogers tagged another Hoosier
runner for what would have been the
final out of the tenth inning.
The play, a delayed double steal,
was set up by a dropped fly ball. s
Rogers summed up her teammates'
feelings. "Everyone thinks we
should've come out of there with three
wins. That first game would have at
least gone to eleven innings if we had
luck on our side."
IN FRIDAY'S second game,,
Michelle Bolster hurleda three-hitter
as Michigan downed Indiana and Un-
terbrink 3-0. "It felt great to beat their
ace," said Rogers. "She's one of the
top pitchers in the Big Ten and we jus4
hit her all over the place."
In the first game of Saturday's
twinbill, Michigan took an early lead
on the strength of Alicia Seegert's bat
and Indiana's repeated fielding
miscues. Vicki Morrow provided the
pitching that made the lead stand up,
raising her record to 6-3 in the
Wolverines' 3-1 victory.
And then came the rain.
By the time the final game began,
the field was a mess. Nothing wen
right for the Wolverines, who were
trounced, 12-0.
