pack as 'M' runs
away from field
BY JODI LEICHTMAN
Home sweet home.
Running on home turf, the
Michigan men's cross country team
was able to outrun its guests
Saturday at the Michigan Open and
capture its first first-place victory
of the season with 19 points.
Michigan easily out-distanced
second-place Hillsdale College who
finished the meet with 81 points.
Wolverine junior Brad Barquist
continued his strong running by
placing first overall, stopping the
clock at 25 minutes and 26
seconds. Teammate John Scherer
was not far behind finishing with a
time of 25:42.
Sophomore Tony Carna shortly
followed finishing third at 25:49.
Finishing fourth and eigth overall,
junior Jeff Barnett and senior Erik
Koskinen finished fourth and fifth,
respectively, for Michigan.
THE WOLVERINES started
the race as a pack. Barquist led the
whole way, but the team virtually
stuck together for the first two
miles. Then, they began to thin
out to tnree. The distanceewhich
separated Barquist, Scherer and
Carna, slowly grew as the group
approached the 3.5-4 mile mark.
Carna eventually shortened the gap
between him and Scherer, but
neither could catch Barquist.
Barquist said he had a good run,
but "It seemed strange not to have
Scherer) right up there. We
normally run pretty close
Scherer wasn't "super happy"
with his own running. "Running is
a real mental sport.," he said.."You
have to push a lot along the way."
It's been tough for Scherer this
season. He has not run as well as
he has in the past. "It's frustrating

HEAD COACH R o n
Warhurst viewed the meet as a
good confidence builder for the
team. "I was especially happy to

fall into shape. "We have a rhythm
for our races - finally, " said
Carna, who was the No.,6
runner on the team last season is
proving his strength. He placed in
the top five for the team in the
Wolverine's last two meets.
Barnett is also running strong.
He started last year as the No. 4
runner, but sat out for most of the
1987 season with calf injuries.

Mounting frustration and the

often cause coaches and, players to
resort to drastic measures. The

Bill Davidge took on the dual role of
referee/coach as he tried to instigate a
D A V I D G E called three
penalties himself," said Michigan co-
captain Myles O'Conner. Besides the
two against me, he also called the
delay of game penalty in the second
period. It's ridiculous. I mean they
are rules, but more like unwritten
O' Conner was called for two ten
rminute misconduct penalties. One in
tlie second period for not wearing a
mouthpiece and one late in the third
for using an illegal stick.
"If coaches know the rulebook
tlhey can take advantage of it," said
iavidge. "If you're down, as a coach
I have to find any way I can, within
the rules, to win. I've been around
here for four years and I'm sick of
"There were some unusual
penalties called by the referee
tonight, but our team rose to the oc-
casion," said Michigan head coach
Red Berenson. "They really went
looking into the nooks and crannies
of the rulebook, I've never seen some
of those penalties called."
AFTER THE game things still
didn't calm down. There was some
action out on the ice that wasn't
within the rules. Redskin player Todd
Harkins hit a Michigan player over
the head with a stick as the teams left
the ice without shaking hands.
"He (Harkins) doesn't exactly
have a sparkling reputation," said
Wolverine goalie Warren Sharples.
"We knew that going into the game
and he stuck his nose where it
doesn't belong a couple of times."
When they weren't playing with
the rule book, the Redskins played
tough hockey--by either jumping out
to an early lead which threatened to
put the game out of reach, or by
coming from behind to almost steal a
After exchanging goals in a 1-1
first period Saturday night, Miami
scored twice on goals by sophomore
Rob Vanderydt and first-year player
Ken House. House, who scored one
goal and had four assists in the
weekend series, was one of the bright
spots for the Redskins.
MIDWAY through the second
period, however, the Wolverines
suddenly awoke from their slumber.
Junior Mike Moes and first-year
players Danny Felsner and Mike
Helber all scored goals within a 30
second span, as Michigan took a 4-3
Said Berenson, "The key to the
game was when Miami played well
in the second period and took a two
goal lead. We came right back and
scored three big goals. That was the
turning point. From that point on we
were in control."
Michigan extended their lead in
the third period to 6-3 on Moes'
second goal of the night and on a
goal by the Helber brothers. Junior
Tim Helber scored with an assist
from sophomore Mike.
Michigan hung on as Miami
scored two late goals, narrowing the
final margin to 6-5.
"I REALLY felt we could come
in here and win a game," said
Davidge. "We made too many mental
errors and didn't maintain our
In Friday night's game, the
Wolverines dominated the first two
periods. After Miami jumped out to a
1-0 lead on a goal by first-year player
Craig Fisher, sophomore Don Stone
and O'Conner scored to make it 2-1
after one period.
Michigan widened the lead in the
second period to 5-2 on two power
play goals by Felsner and junior
Alex Roberts. Sophomore Jim Bal-
lantine also scored as the Wolverines
outshot the Redskins 20-6 in the
In the final period Michigan
survived four Redskin goals to escape
with a 6-5 win.
"This just shows that the game
is never over until it's over. We have
to learn how to play with a lead. We
scored six goals, which is good, but
we can't allow five goals, especially
at home," said Berenson.
