Wolverine defense can't rest at Ferris
By JULIE HOLLMAN
When Michigan and Ferris State
meet tonight and tomorrow in Big
Rapids, both teams are likely to be
more defense-minded than usual.
Both teams are in the thick of the
Central Collegiate H o c k e y
Association race despite having the
worst goals against records in the
league. Michigan has surrendered 42
goals and the Bulldogs 44 in eight
Michigan, 4-4, stands in fourth
place in the conference, three points
behind first-place Michigan State.
Ferris State, 3-5, is in a three-way
tie for fifth, two points behind the
THE WOLVERINES demon-
strated their defensive woes last
Saturday against Illinois-Chicago
when they allowed the Flames to
battle back from a three-goal deficit
in the third period. Eventually
Michigan pulled out an 8-7 overtime
victory and a series split.
Ferris State also allowed seven
goals last Saturday in an 8-7
overtime victory over Lake Superior
State at Sault Ste. Marie. It was the
Lakers first loss of the season.
Despite those victories, both
teams were viciously attacked at the
net. Wolverine goalie Warren
Sharples has been forced to make a
league-leading 245 saves and Bulldog
goalies Mike Williams and Marc
Felicio have combined to make 215
Ferris State coach John Perpich
blames youth for his team's
inconsistent defense. The Bulldogs
coach relies heavily on seven
sophomores and has used seven of
his new recruits extensively this
lapses and breakdowns," said
Perpich. "That could be a key factor
in this series."
Perpich said he will try to cut
down on the mistakes by keeping
his seven recruits out of pressure
Michigan plays 10 sophomores
and five players who are in their first

Michigan's speed versus Ferris
The Bulldogs recruits include
seven players over six feet tall and
three over 6-4.
"We are bigger and stronger this
year and we can skate better," said
Perpich. "We are going to play with
an aggressive style."
Michigan assistant coach Larry
Pedrie feels that newfound bulk
might create a disadvantage for the
priority was for guys six feet, 185
pounds," he said. "But a lot of times
when you get bigger, you get
slower. Hopefully we'll find that and
use it to our advantage."
Michigan boasts threatening
speed, especially up front with
centers Todd Brost and Rob Brown,
and wingers Ryan Pardoski and Joe
"He can really finish," said
Pedrie. "He's not a good skater but
when he gets the puck around the net
he knows what to do with it."
Although the Wolverines will not
have the support of the Ann Arbor
fans, Pedrie believes the away series
can work to Michigan's advantage.
The Bulldogs will look to senior "When you go on the road your
Darm Fridgen (7 goals, 6 assists) team is forced to be together before
and newcomer John dePourcq (4, 6) the game," he said. "That gets the
for offensive production. Fridgen team ready to play as one unit
ranks third in the league in scoring. early."

young players, you'll have a lot
