In a battle between two teams
struggling to put a hault to their
losing ways, Michigan and Ohio
State played to a draw, splitting last
weekend's series at Yost Ice Arena.
The Wolverines (2-4) breezed to
an 8-2 win in the opener thanks to
five power -play goals, but Ohio
State (1-4-1) retaliated the next
night and won in overtime, 4-3.
"It's something that both
Michigan and us needed," said
Buckeye head coach Jerry Welsh.
"We both got a win this weekend. I
think that's good for both teams."
AFTER playing a fairly even
first period Friday night that saw
Michigan skate off with a 2-1 lead,
the Wolverines dominated the final
Ohio State was hit with a delay
of game penalty to start the second
period because they were late
returning to the ice after
intermission. Michigan was quick
to take advantage of the man
advantage when defenseman Jeff
Norton scored his fourth goal of the
season 35 seconds into the period
when he knocked in his own
The Wolverines went on to score
three more times before the period
was over, including two power-play
goals by Brad McCaughey, his
second and third of the year.
McCAUGHEY'S second goal
was probably the nicest of the
weekend. Todd Brost took the puck
just inside the Buckeyes' left blue
line, made a cross rink pass to Brad
Jones who immediatley fed the
junior right wing in front of goalie
"We got more people hustling
on our power play," McCaughey
said after Friday's win. "Last year
we'd all just kind of stand around
and wait for someone to do
something. This year we've got
everyone skating, and I think we
have a much better power play."
Clearly, the star of Friday
night's game was Jones. The senior
center accounted for two goals and
four assists. "It's by far the best
game I've played, and probably the
best game the team has played this
year," he said. "I had a good feeling
going into this whole week of
"THERE'S no question he's a
great college talent," said Michigan
head coach Red Berenson, "and
anytime he plays less than that, I'm
disappointed in him. I liked the way
he skated tonight - he was really
flying out there."
For the Buckeyes it was a night
filled with frustration, which
climaxed when goalie Roger Beedon
suffered a concussion midway
through the second period on what
Welsh called "a very cheap shot" by
Beedon left the crease to go after
a loose puck, and Cusack cross-
checked him from behind, sending
the goalie sprawling to the ice.
Beedon did not see action the rest of
OHIO STATE was able to
salvage some revenge in the second
game with an improved effort that
saw them fire 45 shots at Glen
Neary to the Wolverines' 21.
"Our overall defensive game is
not as good as it should be,"
Berenson said. "You find that with
good young players because they're
usually good offensively, and
they're not as skilled defensively."
The Buckeyes won the game
with a makeshift lineup as Welsh
benched co-captain Joe Tracy and
juggled his lineup from the
"IT'S GOOD for us to know
that the journeymen and the regular
kind of guys can go up and down
the wing and still play winning
hockey," Welsh said, "and it might
just slap some of the guys in the
face that have been a little
"When you make a move like
that and you win, you feel like a
million dollars. When you lose,
you really take the heat for it."
Despite the lopsided shot totals,
Michigan kept the game close
behind Neary's solid effort in goal.
IT EVEN appeared that the
Wolverines would be able to pull
the game out when freshman center
Mike Moes tied the game on a
breakaway at 15:39 of the third
period with Jones in the penalty
box. It was Moes' first collegiate
However, Ohio State carried the
play in overtime, keeping the puck,
in Michigan's end, and they put the
game away when Andy Forcey
scored at the 4:27 mark of sudden
"It was too far to jump on so I
went out and hit it with my stick
right to one of the open men,"
Neary said, "and he just went
around and popped it in." The
Burlington, Vt. native suffered his
second straight overtime loss in
"We can't be satisfied with one
win each weekend," said Brost.
"Maybe we were living off the 8-2
win and just saying, 'Well, we'll
float through this one,' and I don't
think you can do that."
The loss ruined another fine
effort by Jones, who scored two
power-play goals in the second
period, 31 seconds apart, to give
him a season total of seven. He had
eight points in the series.

blitzing, and the back picked up

tough hit, but I kept my eyes open.
"I saw the ball pop free and I
kept pressing after it. I thought I'd
get tackled and I did, but not until I

"I got hit by a car when I was a

Bear coach Mike Ditka called
Marshall's play "outstanding." "He
felt he had to do something extra
with Mike (Singletary) out of

SINGLETARY was kept out
of the game because of a groin
