WOLVERINES TAKE OVER THIRD PLACE

11' icers coole

By 'DOUGLAS VOLAN
The first game they were hot. The
second they were not.
The fire dimmed for the Wolver-
ines last weekend, as they split a se-
ries with Ferris State at Yost Ice
Arena.
On Friday night, Michigan (17-
13 overall, 13-11 CCHA) roared into
third place in the Central Collegiate
Hockey Association, whipping the
Bulldogs, 8-2.
Saturday night, however, the
Wolverines were defeated, 5-3. "We
had the chances but the goals weren't
there," said Michigan head coach Red
Berenson. "(Friday) night we didn't
need them and they were there. You
can't give up five goals to anybody
in this league and expect to win.
"We played in-between hockey -
between where we should have been

and where we were."
IN STARK contrast to Friday
night, the Wolverines didn't keep up
the defensive pressure in the series
finale. "They took advantage of our
defensive mistakes," said Berenson.
"At times there was too much space
between our forwards and our de-
fense."
"It seemed like the seams opened
up a lot better tonight than last
night," said Ferris State center Andy
Black. "(Michigan) was a little
slower tonight."
The Bulldogs were also a different
team on Saturday, starting out
strong and playing a tight defensive
game.
"We got away from our game
(Friday) night," said Ferris State
head coach John Perpich, whose
team split the season series with

l offby
Michigan. "We're not a free-wheel-
ing team. Without the puck, w e
won't be in the game. (Saturday
night) we played a tighter game."
"We're going to win games in the
trenches when we have to work hard
all the time and do the bumping and
grinding," said Ferris State center
John dePourcq.
ANOTHER REASON for the
Ferris State turnaround was the play
of its goalie, Mike Williams. After
getting rocked for six goals in just
over two periods in the opener, the
sophomore goaltender returned with
a vengeance the next evening, stop-
ping 36 Wolverine shots. Sixteen of
those saves came in the third period,
when Michigan continuously at-
tacked the net.
"I tried to put (Friday) night out
of my mind," said Williams.
"(Saturday night) I was just having a
lot more fun out there."
"(Williams) came up big," said
Berenson. "To win on the road a
team has to check, take advantage of
their chances, and get good
goalkeeping. Those are the things
they did."
AFTER BEING pummeled in
the first game, the Bulldogs came
out strong Saturday, as Black scored
on a breakaway just 40 seconds into
the game.

Ferris
Ferris State led 3-0 early in the
second period. "They came out and
jumped on us from the first shift,"
said Berenson. "From then on they
got the momentum."
The Wolverines did score three
goals of their own in the second pe-
riod, but it wasn't enough to over-
take the Bulldogs.
"I can see why that team has
beaten (Michigan) State, Western
(Michigan), and Lake Superior," said
Berenson. "They play a patient
game, particularly with the lead."
IN THE SERIES opener, it
was the Wolverines who were hot.
Trailing 1-0 after the first period,
Michigan caught fire in the second,
scoring four goals. Two of them
were by right wing Billy Powers,
who picked up five points on the
night. "It was my best game here,"
said Powers.
The Wolverines added four more
goals in the third period, two by
Bryan Deasley, who finished with a
hat trick for the second consecutive
week.
"After the fifth goal, we were
looking to open the floodgates," said
Powers. "But we stuck to our defen-
sive game plan and still got the of-
fense. A good team plays top-notch
defense and still gets chances to
score."

It was close, but no cigar.
The Michigan women's basket-
ball team was defeated by Michigan
State Friday night, 66-59. Despite
the Wolverines' third straight Big
Ten loss, head coach Bud Van-
DeWege didn't seem upset.
"I'm not down one bit," he said.
"We've just got to find the way that
our players play best."
Michigan blanked the first-place
Spartans for the first three-and-a-half
minutes until Kim Archer made an
easy layup. For the rest of the first
half the score went back and forth.
With three minutes to go Michigan
led 22-18, but Michigan State scored
the last seven points of the half to
take a three-point lead into the locker
room.
MICHIGAN'S offensive prob-
lems once again plagued the team.
The Wolverines shot just under 31
percent for the game. "We came to
play," said VanDeWege, "but the
bottom line is that we're not playing
the half-court offense. You've got to
shoot better than 30 percent to win."
Sophomore guard Tempie Brown
led the team with 14 points.
Tanya Powell, Michigan's lead-
ing rebounder, pulled down 10
boards but was limited to two-for-13
shooting from the field.
Powell and the rest of the
Wolverine offense was shut down by
the tough Michigan State defense.
The Spartan center, 6-4 senior Sue
Forsyth, seemed to get a hand in ev-
ery Michigan play in the paint. The
Wolverines would frequently have to
put in 6-2 Joan Rieger in order to
get every inch of body in the game
against Forsyth.
ALTHOUGH Forsyth's pres-
ence was formidable, Rieger felt that
it wasn't the key to the Michigan
loss. "It wasn't as much a height
problem as it was that we came out
flat in the second half," said the
sophomore center. Forsyth finished
the game with nine points, four re-
bounds, and two blocks in 25 min-
utes.
A 19-8 Spartan run in the first 10
minutes in the second half gave the
Spartans an insurmountable lead.

The Wolverines tried to come back
in the next 10 minutes when they
outscored the Spartans 27-22, but it
wasn't enough. ,
With Michigan State leading 56-
51, sophomore forward Lisa Rey-
nolds hit a jumper with three
minutes to go to bring the Wolver-
ines to within three. Then the Spar-
tans took charge. They scored nine
points in under two minutes against
a bewildered Michigan defense.
THE KEY to the Michigan
State outburst that won them the
game was best described by Spartan
head coach Karen Langeland. "It was
our experience that brought us
back," Langeland said. "We had
(seniors) Archer and Forsyth, and
(junior) Cynthia Lyons in the game
at that time," the twelfth-year coach
claimed. "That's what made the dif-
ference in the game."
The Spartan victory raised their
record to a Big Ten-leading record to
5-0, 9-5 overall.
Michigan fell to 1-4 in the Big
Ten and 8-6 overall.
