OXFORD, Oh. - To be or not

difference between winning o r
Friday night, the Wolverine
hockey team was flat. Saturday, it
was pumped. The result: a 6-3
disappointing defeat in the series
opener followed by an uplifting,
come-from-behind, 4-3 victory to
gain a split with Miami on the road.
"I think we just woke up," said
Michigan head coach Red Berenson
after Saturday's victory. "We realized
that everyone has to play his best at
this level. (Friday night) I just felt
that as a team we weren't
collectively outworking Miami.
(Saturday) we made a much stronger
Michigan took a quick lead on
Saturday when Billy Powers scored a
power-play goal from the slot with
just 3:26 expired in the first period.
The goal was the senior's fourth of
the season in just four games. Last
season it took Powers fourteen
games to score as many.
But Miami held tough, tied it up,
and captured a 3-1 lead midway
through the second period when
Redskin captain Mike Orn notched
his second goal of the game.
JUST 22 seconds later, Michigan
sophomore center Rob Brown came
away from the sideboards and slapped
one from the top of the left face-off
circle to beat Miami goalie Steve
McKichan low to the glove side.
McKichan, who was playing with
a tender groin, seemed to aggravate
the injury on the shot and was
replaced by Doug Timberlake.
Within five minutes, Timberlake
also was skating to the bench with
an apparent injury as third-stringer
Paul Ruggieri took his place.
Michigan's Don Stonekhad scored the
second of his two goals in a two
minute span of the second period; it
capped a three goal Michigan rally
which brought the Wolverines back
from a 3-1 deficit to an eventual 4-3
victory on Saturday.
The first-year forward was the
game's number one star and now
leads the Wolverines in scoring with
four goals and two assists.
"The 'fourth goal (Stone's game-
winner) was a combination of hard
work by (Mike) Moes and Brad
(McCaughey) and me kind of reading
the play and being in the right place
at the right time," Stone said. "I'm
real happy with my play right now. I
didn't expect to have four goals after
EARLIER in the period, Stone
had knocked Redskin sophomore
defenseman Steve McGrinder out
with a knee injury. According to
Miami head coach Bill Davidge, the
key to the game was Miami's
"I thought we dominated the third
period. You look at those three goals
- they were gifts. I'm disappointed
in the loss, but if you remove those
three or four minutes (in the second
period) it's a 3-1 Miami win."
Each team fired 11 shots in the
third period, as Miami struggled to
tie the game. Perhaps their best
opportunity came with just under
four minutes to play, when Miami
defenseman Bob Wallwork unleashed
a blast from the point and then
followed his shot to flick the
rebound at the net.
Michigan goaltender Warren
Sharples came up big, however.
Some extra-cirricular activities
followed the play resulting in
fighting penalties and the ejections
of Wallwork and Michigan
defenseman Mark Sorensen.
While the Wolverines came out
inspired on Saturday, they came up
short on Friday night. Although they
fired 36 shots at McKichan,
Michigan failed to capitalize on their
scoring chances and lapsed
defensively, leading to a 6-3 defeat.
It was parents's weekend at
Miami, and the Redskins played with
emotion. Miami first-year winger
Todd Harkins led the attack with a
hat trick, and senior center Mike Orn
added a goal and two assists.
"McKichan made the big save
when he had to, we did a better job
defensively and we capitalized on
Michigan mistakes," said Davidge.
"That was the plan of attack."
Michigan defenseman Alex
Roberts missed Friday night's game
after injuring his knee in practice,
but returned to the lineup Saturday.

The women's cross country team
has been on a winning streak, ow and,
having won their first four
invitational meets of the season.
Last weekend, the Wolverines
dominated a 12-team field at the
Indiana Invitational, and this
weekend they did the same at the
Highlights of the Indiana
Invitational included Michigan's
upset over Minnesota, a team that
was ranked 12th in the nation. The
Wolverines pulled away from their
competition by a fairly wide margin,
scoring 48 points to Minnesota's 64.
The Wolverines are currently ranked
13th in the NCAA.
This weekend, Michigan travelled
to East Lansing and came home.as
Champions. It defeated its nine
competitors by a substantial margin.
Eastern Michigan trailed t h e
Iy lead way
Wolverines by 36 points (28-64), to
take second place.
SOPHOMORE Mindy Rowand
was the first Wolverine finisher to
complete the 5,000-meter course.
Rowand, who has been a top
Michigan finisher since her first
year, was clocked at 17:44, 23
seconds behind front-runner Donna
Donakowski of Eastern Michigan.
"Rowand ran a smart race," said
Michigan head coach Sue Foster.
"She knew we were depending on her
to cover for Cheri Sly and Ava
Udavia. She really came through."
Sly, who has been nursing an
ankle injury all week, still ran an
aggressive race to place fourth. She
crossed the finish line only three
seconds behind Rowand.
"Our coach had me wear a more
supportive pair of racing shoes, ones
that didn't have spikes on the
bottom," said Sly. "The course was
wet. People were challenging me on
the hills, and without the spikes, I
had to work twice as hard to pass
"I want to play it safe with Sly,"
said Foster. "She has a good chance
