Lakers drown 'M'
icers in own miscues
By PETE STEINERT
How appropriate that the hockey
team finished the first half of its
conference schedule by dropping
two games in typical fashion last
weekend at Yost Ice Arena.
Michigan's defensive miscues
Friday and Saturday night left it on
the short end of 5-4 and 6-4 losses
to Lake Superior State College (11-
4-1 overall, 10-3-1 in the Central
Collegiate Hockey Association).
concerned about your defensive
lapses," Michigan head coach Red
Berenson said after Friday's game.
"If we're going to win games, we're
going to have to cut down on our
goals against. It's a constant
"This is a team game," said
Laker head coach Frank Anzalone.
"This isn't racquetball. If this was a
series of one-on-ones, Michigan
would win, 10-0. It's a team game,
and that's what coach Berenson is
Friday night exemplified the two
coaches' words. The Wolverines (4-
12) went off at the end of the first
period with a 3-1 advantage thanks
to three power-play goals.
However, Michigan let Lake
Superior back in the game in the
second, and the Lakers eventually
took a 4-3 lead.
AFTER GOALIE Warren
Sharples made a great stop on Ron
Warus' breakaway, Pete Stauber
scored on the rebound at the 17:28
of the second period. Stauber was
unmarked on the play.
Lake Superior didn't let the
Wolverines get back in the game
when they scored 12 seconds into
the third period. Jeff Norton allowed
Dean Dixon to center a pass from
behind the net to Stauber who
scored an uncontested goal to
complete his first collegiate hat
"It was just a matter of being in
the right place at the right time,"
said the soft-spoken freshman, who
added another tally to make it a
"IT WAS a bad play on
Norton's part," Berenson said, "but
we didn't recover. That's the kind of
play where the team has to go out
and get that goal right back, and we
couldn't get it back."
The two teams traded
meaningless goals in the last nine
seconds to make the final, 6-4.
"It's (defensive mistakes) been
the story all year," said Myles
O'Connor, who scored his eighth
goal earlier in the game. "We're
aware of it. We just haven't been
able to correct it."
Saturday night was more of the
same except that Michigan waited
until the third period to lose the
lead. The Wolverines turned a 1-0
deficit into a 4-3 lead in the second
frame on two goals each by Brad
Jones and Todd Brost.
Brost was a force all night,
killing penalties and working on
the power play. His first goal was
shorthanded, and he gave his team a
brief lead when he stole the puck
from Dixon at Lake Superior's blue
line and drove a slap shot past
Laker goalie Mike Greenlay.

"After the second period we
deserved to lose," Anzalone said,
"but the game has a third period.
They really played hard in the third.
(Our team showed) a lot of character
and a lot of effort."
Anzalone continued his
dominance over Michigan, winning
his 11th and 12th in a row, but the
fifth-year coach downplayed the
mark Friday night.
"As far as I'm concerned, we've
won the first game of the year
against Michigan. People keep
calling me about the records. There
are no records. We're 1-0 against
Michigan in 1986-87. That's it."
As far as Berensdn is concerned,
he can only hope better days are
"This has been a real tough
stretch," the third year coach said.
"This whole first half. We're going
to have to have a really good second
half to be even close to where we
were hoping to be."

FELDMAN NETS 30 IN OPENER:
Women cagers drop the Rock
By SHELLY HASELHUHN
The women's basketball team,
comprised of mostly newcomers,
was all smiles after it bullied

in its season opener last Saturday at
Third-year head coach Bud
VanDeWege cracked a smile as
well. The victory marked a
sucessful debut for the coach, who
opened last year with a loss to Holy
Although VanDeWege was
smiling, his main emotion was
"THE PRACTICESwere a
bit tentative; they were not good,"
remarked VanDeWege afterwards.
"The girls have been a little
nervous, but that comes with the
youth and inexperience of the
The cagers rose to the occasion
with an early eight-point lead, as
junior Lorea Feldman (career-high
30 points) scored the first basket.
The Rockets did not light the
scoreboard until 2:23 had ticked
The Rockets rallied for six
straight points within a span of 55
seconds midway through the first
half to close the gap to two-points,
21-19. But Michigan outscored the
Rockets 24-16 the rest of the period
to take a 45-35 lead at halftime.
Despite some lapses on defense,
including 30 fouls, VanDeWege
was not disappointed with his
"EVERYONE played enthus-
iastically, but we're not very far
along defensively," he said. "They
kept fouling partly because they
were out of position."
Sarah Basford, a junior guard
who scored 10 points, concurred.
"The defense broke down in
terms of help and helping the
helper. We still need to get a feel
for each other on the court and to
communicate out there."
Michigan's domination contin-
ued through the second half as well
with freshman Tanya Powell had a
game high 13 rebounds, all of
which were in the last 20 minutes.
The Rockets' Tina Moynihan
attempted to lead a comeback,
tallying a team-high 20 points, but
the effort was not enough.
Michigan's big lead allowed
VanDeWege to give playing time
for his bench, which scored 26
points in a mere 6:55. Freshman
guard Tempie Brown led the
benchers by scoring 13 of her 15
points in this time.
