Sometimes losing a game means
more than just another notch in the
This was one of those times for
the Michigan hockey team.
What separated Saturday's 6-4
loss to Ferris State from the
Wolverines' other six losses was a
fight after the game - a fight that
will probably cost Michigan the
services of Jeff Norton, the team's
captain and top defenseman for
Friday's game with Michigan State.
NORTON and Ferris State's
Rod Schluter were given five
minute fighting penalties and game
disqualifications after their
respective teams engaged in a
bench-clearing brawl immediately
after the final buzzer.

Normally, Berenson would not
have a case because referees' calls
during games are not open for
debate. But since the incident
occurred after the game and referee
Dave Fisher did not issue the
penalties until after he left the ice,
Berenson feels he has a legitimate
"I THINK there's room for
discussion because it was a matter
of chaos on the ice," said Berenson.
"I can understand making a call after
the game, but don't give a guy a

Like everyone at Yost Arena on
Saturday, Berenson has his own
version of the fracas. "I asked our
players what started it, and they told
me Norton was speared after a
whistle," he said. "He retaliated
with his stick but was knocked to
the ice when someone hit him from
behind. He didn't have a chance to

it escalated into a larger battle. One
of the more memorable sights was

ANOTHER issue that fuels
Berenson's contention is the
possibility of another party talking
to Fisher and having an influence
on what penalties were called.
Originally Michigan's Brad Jones
and Ferris' Glen Raeburn were also
disqualified, but those calls were
"Did the ref make any calls on
the observations of a third party?"
Berenson asked. "If so, I would
question the validity of the calls.
Jones wasn't on the ice at the
buzzer, so when his name was
thrown in, I think it may have,
came from someone else."
Norton himself claims the fight
arose because Ferris State was
trying to intimidate the Wolverines.
"I was speared twice during the
game, the last time with about 12
seconds to go," he said. "Then I
was cross-checked in the head at the
buzzer. I used my stick to try to
push myself out of there but a

There were no hot dog venders,
no Shaky Jakes. The entertaining
saxaphone player didn't even show.
Only a fistful of Michigan fans
witnessed the Blue and Maize
games, the fun-filled baseball
outing at Ray Fisher Statium this
past weekend that ended in a split,
each team claiming two wins.
The annual intrasquad games,
according to baseball coach Bud
Middaugh, gives his men a taste of
the spring season by playing two
days of doubleheaders among
"IT BASICALLY allows me
to move splayers around and see
what I have to work with," he said.
"I'm looking at technique, seeing
how the new ones handle the game
situation with referees."
And the freshmen did sparkle.
Covering first base for the Blue
team was newcomer Phil Price.
Price cracked at least one hit a
game, while defensively he never
allowed a ball to bounce by him.
On the Maize's mound Saturday
was Mike Grimes, also a freshman.
Although losing the pitching duel
to senior Greg Everson, the hurler
pitched well and looks promising
for the spring.
"The weekend was fun but
college ball is a whole different
ballgame from high school," said
Grimes, a Texas native. "I can
relate to the pressure Jimmy
(Abbott) was under last year."
"As a whole," said junior Steve
Finken, "the defense was pretty key
all weekend, which was a major
point we all needed to work on this

winners was a night of pizza, but

If this fall's baseball team is any
reflection of what's in store for
spring sports, then Michigan fans
won't be disappointed.
