Icers blank FSC for split
By DARREN JASEY
Special to the Daily
BIG RAPIDS - Most hockey
games are won and lost in the third
period. But when Michigan and
Ferris State met at FSC Ice Arena
last Friday and Saturday nights,
first-period heroics by both teams
led to a split.
Michigan scored three first
period goals and goaltender Warren
Sharples kept the Bulldogs at bay
to lead Michigan to a 6-0 victory
Friday night, however, Ferris
State jumped out to a 2-0 advantage
after the first period and held off a
furious Wolverine rally to win 5-3.
Michigan and Ferris State
remain in a seventh-place tie-in the
Central Collegiate Hockey
Association with identical 8-16
records. Both teams added two
points to their lead over last place
Miami, which lost two games to
Lake Superior State.
The series featured several after-
the-whistle melees and 44 penalties
(27 Saturday night), but nothing
proportional to the bench-clearing
brawl the two teams had in Ann
Arbor on Nov. 8.
Michigan did not resemble the
team that had surrendered at least
seven goals in each of its last five
games. Tight checking by the
Wolverine forwards and the
outstanding play of Sharples made
"We did a better team job of
checking," head coach Red Berenson
said. "The defense was better. We
only gave up four goals on the
"Checking was the major
emphasis on the games," said
Michigan center Brad Jones. "When
it came right down to it, everybody
had to take their man and as a result
the chances were coming in. Once
you play a strong defensive game
the (scoring) chances are going to
While the forwards kept Ferris
State in check, Sharples put them
in checkmate on Saturday night.
The freshman stopped 30 shots en
route to his first career shutout.
Michigan's last shutout was in last
season's opener against Miami
when Tim Makris saved 18 shots.
"The team really came together,"
Sharples said. "If I made a mistake
there was always someone there to
make up for it. The defense played
It was Sharples 15 first-period
saves that fired up the Wolverines
and demoralized Ferris State. Said
Berenson, "He made several key
saves in the first period that I think
gave everybody a big lift and that
kind of set the tempo."
"When he comes up with that
big save it upsets you," said
Bulldog center Peter Lowden. "You
know it was going to be a goal and
when he stops you you think, 'Oh
shit.' It pisses you off."
Lowden and the rest of the
Bulldogs would have been really
mad if they had let a 3-0 lead slip
away from them in game one. But
Darin Fridgen's empty-net goal
guaranteed the 5-3 win for Ferris
A goal by Wolverine
defenseman Todd Copeland at 2:23
of the final period had made it a 4-3
game. But after that, Michigan did
everything but put the puck past
Bulldog netminder Glen Raeburn.
The momentum began to swing
Michigan's way after Peter
Lowden's 11th goal put Ferris State
up 3-0 at 4:26 of the second period.
In the last two periods the
Wolverines outshot the Bulldogs
"That's the kind of game that
you want to play," Berenson said.
"When you generate that many
scoring chances and you don't put
them in what can you say? That's
all you can expect on the road."
"We capitalized on some
chances and played real stingy
defense," said Perpich,."
Michigan's first two goals were
scored by defenseman Myles
O'Conner in the second period, but
the team sorely lacked scoring from
its forwards. "Our seniors (forwards)
had a chance to win the game," said
Berenson. "That's not
O'Conner added two more goals
in the 6-0 win Saturday and has
now scored 14 goals this season.
Center Brad Jones notched his
19th goal and 200th career point at
15:06 of the first period. The
game's winning goal moved him
into fourth place on the all-time
Michigan scoring list. Jones also
added three assists in the game.
"It's a great thrill," said Jones.
"Anytime you get 200 points in
four seasons and put yourself in a
category with Dave DeBol and Kris
Manery it's a great honor."
'When it came right
down to it, everybody had
to take their man and as a
result the (scoring)
chances were coming in.

In their first attempts to charge
to the top of the Big Ten
conference, the men's and women's
gymnastics teams fell short
Staurday night at Crisler Arena.
The Wolverine attack was countered
by perennial powerhouse Ohio
State, which outshined Michigan
with difficult routines and precise
Despite the backing of the home
crowd, neither the men nor the
women could stay on their feet as
each squad was plagued by the
inability to turn in consistent
"We have the talent and the
depth, but there were too many
mistakes - mistakes that shouldn't
have been there," commented
women's coach Dana Kempthorn.
"We could have been closer but
falls on the beam and bars hurt us,"
The final women's score read
Michigan 174.4, OSU 182.2, as
the Buckeyes controlled every
event. The closest they allowed the
Wolverines to come was 45.1 to
45.6 in the floor exercise.
On the men's side of the card,
the story read similarly with
Michigan trailing Ohio State after
every event. The men put up a fight
in the last event, the horizontal bar,
but came up short in the end 256 to
Although men's coach Bob
Darden expressed disappointment in
his team's overall performance, he
found one consolation. "Although
we were shooting for a 260, we did
improve our score by four points,
and to improve is always an
underlying goal," explained Darden.
