Icers surprised by OSU
with weekend tie, loss
ember 21, 1988
BY LISA GILBERT
Ranked fifth in the nation and winners of five of its
last six games, the Michigan hockey team looked like a
sure thing to beat CCHA cellar-dweller Ohio State and
'chture sole possession of first place in the league.
' °'Trouble is that in the topsy-turvy world of the
SCHA, there's no such thing as a sure thing. The
SBckeyes proved this by upending Michigan with a 4-4
overtime tie on Friday night and a hard-fought 2-1 win
di ',Saturday night, raising their record to 2-7-1.
Michigan is 7-3-2.

we could put our jerseys on, step on the ice and win. It
doesn't work like that in this league. All the teams are
,OHIO STATE coach Jerry Welsh said: "If you look
4 our team the way we do, you wouldn't describe us as a
1-7 team going in. We match up well with Michigan.
Comparative standings weren't on our mind."
1A closer inspection of the two teams showed that this
would be anything but a cakewalk for the Wolverines.
Last year the two teams split their season series with
egch winning one at home. Ohio State leads the overall
series with a 15-13-1 mark since 1963.
"This is not a surprise," said Michigan coach Red
Brenson. "They play hard against us every year. We
don't, seem to be able to do what it takes to beat that
team the way we should. We didn't play the kind of
hockey that's won games for us offensively or

IN MICHIGAN'S first Saturday night loss this
season, the Wolverines had their only lead of the
weekend on a goal by leading-scorer Denny Felsner. The
Buckeyes came storming back 33 seconds later to tie the
score at one.
Ohio State closed out the scoring late in the second
period on a goal by their leading-scorer Andy Forcey.
Michigan had numerous opportunities in the third period,
but a combination of excellent goaltending by Ohio
State's Todd Fanning and some unlucky bounces
thwarted the Wolverine attack.
"We had a lot of chances that just didn't go in for us
tonight," said Michigan winger Rob Brown. "But you
have to give them credit. They came in here and skated

to escape with a tie. "When we get breakdowns like we

It was no trip into the Twilight Zone, but some
strange things happened in Crisler Arena last Saturday
The Michigan women's basketball team defeated the
University of Toronto, 82-73. That was expected. The
team leading scorers also stacked up as predicted.
Forward Tanya Powell led Michigan with 18 points,
followed by Lorea Feldman with 16, and Tempie
Brown with 12.
But from there on, all the key factors in the game
Backup center Mary Rosowski entered the game and
scored 6 first-half points and added 6 rebounds to help
inspire a tentative Michigan team.
"MARY PLAYED well while Joan (Rieger,
Michigan's starting center) was struggling," said
Michigan coach Bud VanDeWege, "Mary came in and
picked us up."
Rosowski finished with 12 points, but she was not
the only bench help for Michigan. Defensive specialist
Leslie Spicer showed some scoring promise of her
own by tossing in 10 points, while first-year guard
Leah Woodridge hit two three-point shots.
Yet with all the offensive firepower, Michigan's
defense was the most important factor in the win. The
Wolverines held Toronto scoreless in the last two
minutes of the first half to open up a 41-29 lead.
VanDeWege had stressed defense during the
WQlverines' preseason workouts. On Saturday, the
Wolverine defense was inconsistent. But when the
Wolverines successfully executed on defense, the
"WE FOUND out that the game goes as well as
our defense goes," said VanDeWege. "We stopped
them and we got the transition game going. We had a
couple of really nice breaks."
Even with the bench and the strong defense, talk
still centered around Brown and Feldman.
"(Feldman) played awesome and (Brown) is an
exceptional player," said Toronto coach Michelle

Throughout their season, the
members of the Michigan men's
cross country team have been anti-
cipating this day. Seven Wolverines
are awaiting the sound of the gun to
begin today's NCAA Championships
in Ames, Iowa. Their daily workouts
and perseverance have paid off.
"Cross country is a team sport,"
said Erik Koskinen. "You just can't
have a supporting cast. One or two'
runners won't do it."
Michigan's cast is led by Brad
Barquist and John Scherer who are
expected to guide the pack of
Wolverine runners. Tony Carna and
Jeff Barnett will have to maintain
Michigan's momentum throughout
the 10,000 meter course by staying
with the middle of the field.
Ryan Robinson will be running
with a stress fracture, but last week
he ran with pain to come in fifth for
the Woverines. Koskinen and Karl
Welke will be the team's insurance.
"I'm just going to have to go
out ther: a little harder," said
Koskinen. "If Ryan falters, I'll just
have to suck it up and go."
"It's going to be a very mental
race," said Robinson, "The high
workouts condition you to mentally
withstand the pain. We're strength
runners. We're ready for anything."
Michigan's last team appearance
at a national meet was in 1984. The vidual performance for Michigan was'
highest finish for the Wolverine's Scherer's second place finish a year
was sixth in 1982. The best indi- ago.
