BLUE BRAWLS WITH BULLDOGS
Icers settle for one with Ferris
By DARREN JASEY
Two teams fighting to stay out
of the Central Collegiate Hockey
Association basement met head on
at Yost Ice Arena Friday and
Saturday night. Both teams pulled
out late third period victories, and a
bench-clearing brawl after
Saturday's game put an exclamation
point on the hard-fought series.
A strong display of forechecking
and defense, plus a controversial
penalty helped Michigan to a 5-4
victory over Ferris State Friday
night. However, the Bulldogs lifted
their intensity level Saturday to
squeak out a 6-4 decision.
THE Bulldogs snapped an eight-
game losing streak and now stand
2-8 in the CCHA (2-9 overall)
while Michigan moved to 3-7 in
"They used their size well
(Friday)," Ferris State head coach
John Perpich said. "They used their
size and build to control the puck."
On Saturday the Wolverines
weren't quite as tough on the
"DEFENSIVELY- we gave them
too much," said Michigan head
coach Red Berenson. "As soon as
our guy misses an assignment -
it's just like football - somebody
is going to be open."
FerristState center Peter Lowden
was able to find an opening and tap
in a puck that bounded between
Michigan goaltender Glen Neary's
legs with under three minutes left
in Saturday night's game. That
score put the Bulldogs ahead to stay
Neary had made several
spectacularhsaves earlier in the
period to keep Michigan tied 4-4,
but he couldn't handle that one.
Gary Sweetnam's empty net goal
finished off the scoring forFerris
"I JUST went in strong after it
and I managed to get a stick on it,"
"I thought it was going to hit"
my pads,-but it hit ended up hitting'
my stick," Neary said. "It ricocheted
between my pads and landed
between my legs. I just saw it too
Friday night was another story.
Michigan scored twice to break
open a 3-3 tie late in the third
period after Bulldog center Rod
Schluter was handed a controversial
five-minute major for slashing
ALTHOUGH Bulldog head
coach John Perpich had a bone to
pick, he wasn't directly critical of
referee Jeff Schell's call. "Let's just
say it was 52 minutes of even
hockey," he said.
"I think we outplayed them,"
said Bulldog right winger Mike
Sparago, who scored a pair of goals
Friday night. "Without that penalty
we would'have won the game."
Myles O'Connor struck first for
the Wolverines during the major at
12:36 with a hard slapshot that was
reminiscent of his game-winning
shot in the season opener against
Bowling Green. The goal gave
Michigan the lead for good at 4-3.
"IT IS something we've been
working on in practice," said
O'Connor of his goal. "It was a
great pass from Jonesy (Brad Jones)
to Todd (Brost), and Todd just
feathered one out to me and I put it
Before the penalty expired,
fellow defenseman Jeff Norton
boosted the score to 5-3 with his
fifth goal of the season.
Perhaps the biggest goal of the
first game for Michigan came
midway through tfie second period.
Ferris State had just scored two
goals within a 1:01 span to take a
3-2 lead, but 20 seconds later Brad
McCaughey notched his fourth goal
of the season.
'"IT WAS lucky," said Mc -
Caughey. "I took a chance and
busted out of the zone and then

Myles threw a bouncer to me that
went over the defenseman's stick...
I took off for the goal and then
deked the goalie."
In Saturday night's loss, nifty
passing and shooting by Brost,
Jones and Norton gave Michigan
momentary hope by turning a 3-1
deficit into a 4-3 lead.
