Lakers extend icers' home skid

BY MIKE GILL
Fifteen minutes after Friday's
game, Warren Sharples sat alone in
the Michigan locker room. Others
had left. Others were showering.
,But Sharples sat, still dressed,
including his skates, with his head
completely buried in a large white
towel. It was symbolic of the
Wolverines' weekend - something
you'd like to bury.
Defending national champion
Lake Superior State swept
Michigan 3-2 Friday night and 7-1
Saturday, before a combined two-
day total of 10,590 at Yost Ice
Arena. The Wolverines, who had a
possibility of moving into second
place before the weekend started,
instead dropped into fifth place with
a 8-9-3 Central Collegiate Hockey
Association record (10-11-3
overall).
MICHIGAN now has lost five
consecutive games at home, tying
the team record, and is winless in
its last nine Yost appearances, a
new record.
"You never know what you're
going to get right after Christmas,"
said Michigan coach Red Berenson,
who has never beaten the Lakers
(12-5-3 CCHA; 15-6-3 overall) in
Ann Arbor during his five years as
head coach. "Christmas is a period
where players lose their
concentration. I thought we got our
heads back into the game at the GLI
(Great Lakes Invitational, which
Michigan won), but maybe our
heads are still at the GLI."
On Friday, Michigan had a
chance for another dramatic come-
from-behind vic'ory. After Lake
Superior jumpeC out to a two-goal
lead on goals by Jim Dowd and
Dean Dyer, Mike Moes scored his
tenth goal of the season, a gower-
play goal with 18 minutes 32
seconds left in the third period.
Moes slapped in an idle puck laying
behind goalie Bruce Hoffort.
The penalty was a bench minor
assessed to Lakers coach Frank
Anzalone, who went on an on-ice
tirade at the end of period two.
"If I wouldn't've taken the dumb
bench penalty, the whole outlook
of the game might have been
different," Anzalone said. "I didn't
do a good job on taking that
penalty. I let the ref get to me and
";that gave Michigan a power play -
,'and that opened up the floodgates."

Dueling
'M' takes fourth
against top teams

JESSICA GREENE/Daily
Michigan's Jeff Urban (15) fights for the puck with Lake Superior's Ken Martel.

WITH 5:40 LEFT, Denny
Felsner's 14th goal of the year tied
the score. With under three minutes
to go, Sharples twice stopped Brett
Barnett from in close, accounting
for two of his 15 saves in the
period and 35 overall. "Sharples is
playing outstanding hockey for
them," Anzalone said afterwards.
"He's doing a great job in goal. He
made a lot of tough saves."
When Rob Brown moved in all
alone with 30 seconds remaining in
the third, it looked like Michigan
had the game won. Instead, Brown
fired wide on a backhander.
Senior right-wing Mike deCarle
gave Lake Superior the win when
he broke in on Sharples and stuck it
high in the net with 14 seconds
remaining. "I didn't know what I
was going to do when I went in -
being on a breakaway against
Warren Sharples," deCarle said.
"Once he dropped his glove, I went
high with the goal."
Sharples said he misjudged the
speed deCarle was coming at him,
adding, "He made a nice play and
put it upstairs. I really gave him
too much room."
Anzalone and Berenson had
differing viewpoints whether the
Lakers were lucky to pick up the
two points in the standings.
"I feel lucky on Robby Brown's

miss, but I don't feel lucky about
the win," Anzalone said.
Berenson said: "They have to
consider themselves very lucky. It's
a tough loss. Brown misses the
whole net or we'd be sitting in here
saying we played well, and it's a
great win.,
SATURDAY was a long
night at Yost. A broken panel of
glass delayed action and water
dripped inside the arena due to the
heavy showers outside. The other
problem was the Wolverines were
showered with a barrage of goals.
After Lake Superior jumped out
to a 4-0 lead on goals by Kord
Cernich, Brett Barnett and Anthony
Palumbo (2), Timmy Keough was
removed from the net and replaced
with Sharples.
Berenson said he started Keough
due to the way Sharples looked at
the end of Friday. "I thought
Warren looked a little tired late in
the game (Friday)," Berenson said.
Michigan avoided a shutout
when Jimmy Ballantine chipped in
Kent Brothers' shot from the blue
line. "It was just luck," Ballantine
said. "It's nice not being shut out,
but it wasn't anything special. We
were just flat. Maybe it was the
success of the GLI. Whenever we
have a little bit of success, we can't
keep it going."

Blue banter
NUT CASE. The black sheep
of the CCHA, Lake Superior coach
Frank Anzalone, paid his yearly
visit to Ann Arbor. Anzalone put
on a show worthy of admission,
chewing out players, officials, and
anyone willing to listen.
Anzalone at one point in
Friday's contest stood on the
players' bench, then jumped down
and started banging the wall. Later,
his team was assessed a bench
minor after Anzalone stayed on the
ice at the conclusion of the second
period to offer referee Dennis Parish
an extra two cents' worth. "I just
disagree with some of the calls and
I wanted the ref to know," Anzalone
said.
Said center Mike Moes of
Anzalone's antics: "I didn't pay
attention to him. He's a nut."
W ORKING THE POWER
PLAY. Billy Jaffe, who left the
team last month, found himself
working on the Wolverines' power
play - but from the press box.
Jaffe made his broadcasting debut,
doing color commentary for WJJX
at the start of the second period
Friday night, some of which saw
Michigan with a power play. He
worked about four minutes then
returned at the end of the period to
offer his comments.

BY STEVEN COHEN
This weekend the Michigan
wrestling team traveled to Virginia
intent upon establishing itself
among the elite of the college
wrestling world. The prestigious
Virginia Duals tournament is
considered the national team dual-
meet championship.
Though Michigan was seeded
fourth and finished fourth, the
Wolverines did more than just
maintain their standing. Michigan
came within an eyelash, or in this
case nine seconds, of potentially
winning the tournament.
The decisive match came in the
semifinals. After defeating Missouri
and conference foe Ohio State
handily, Michigan faced top-ranked
Oklahoma State. Michigan's 150-
pounder, Sam Amine, lost a match
to the highly ranked Tim Chesbro,
which turned out to be the turning
point in the meet.
Amine was leading, 3-2, with
nine seconds remaining when
Chesbro scored a take-down to steal
a 4-3 victory. Earlier in the match,
an apparent take-down by Amine
was not awarded.
Oklahoma State ended up
defeating Michigan, 21-15. A
victory for Amine would have meant
an18-18 tie. In that event, the
Wolverines would have won the tie-
breaker, as Michigan took five
matches to Oklahoma State's four.
"(Amine) lost the match and he
should have won it," 142-pounder
Larry Gotcher said. "(If we beat
OSU), we would have won the
tournament. We would have beat
Arizona State because they got killed
by Okie State."
Instead, the Wolverines were
nudged into the consolation brackets,
where they worked their way to a
fourth-place finish. Minutes after the
loss to the Cowboys, Michigan met

Lockhaven, which earlier in the meet
had destroyed No.8 Minnesota, 30-6.
Lockhaven jumped out to an 11-0
lead as Michigan's Salem Yaffai and
John Moore were defeated handily at
118 and 126 pounds, respectively.
But that was before Lockhaven
visited what Michigan coach Dale
Bahr calls his "Murderers Row," the
combination of John Fisher,
Gotcher, Sam Amine, Joe Pantaleo,
and Mike Amine. Those five won
their matches, along with Lehrke and
heavyweight Bob Potokar, for a 21-
16 victory. Despite the close score,
Michigan won 7 of 10 matches.
In its next match, Michigan,
weakened by a knee'injury to Mike
Amine, lost to third-ranked Penn
State, 21-11.
The final results matched the
original tournament seedings -
Oklahoma State, Arizona State,
Penn State and Michigan.
"We're not going to hang our
heads," Bahr said. "The top four
teams are just tooth and toenail with
each other. On any given night any
of the teams can beat each other."
Bright spots for Michigan
included Pantalco and Fisher, who
were undefeated in their five
matches. For his efforts, Fisher was
named the meet's outstanding
wrestler for the third time this
season.
For Michigan to win the national
championship they will need
particularly strong performances in
the 118- and 126-pound weight
divisions, as both Penn State and
Oklahoma State field All-Americans
in those classes.
"I think we have a lot of work to
do for us to meet our goal of a
national championship," Gotcher
said. "(But) without a question I
don't think our team will lose
another dual meet this season."

CHICAGO (AP) - The fear of
freezing was nothing more than an
object of scorn for Joe Montana,
Jerry Rice, and their San Francisco
teammates yesterday.
Playing in 30-mph winds and a
wind-chill factor of almost 20 below
zero, Montana and Rice combined for
two touchdowns and Montana threw
a third to John Frank as the 49ers
beat the Chicago Bears, 28-3, to set
up a rematch of their 26-21 Super
Bowl win over Cincinnati in 1982.
Montana threw for 199 yards in
the first half alone and finished 17 of
27 for 288 yards, combining with
Rice on a 62-yard touchdown pass in
the first quarter and a 27-yarder in the
second and also throwing a 5-yarder
to tight end Frank in the third.
Bears quarterback Jim McMahon,
making his first start since injuring a
knee two months ago, was 14 of 29
for 121 yards before leaving in the
fourth quarter for Mike Tomczak.
The win was the 49ers' sixth in
their last seven games after a 6-5
start in what has been an erractic
NFL season.

Cincinnati Bengals shuffled through
the jungle and into the Super Bowl
Sunday.
With star rookie running back
Ickey Woods prancing into the end
zone twice and running for 102 yards
on 29 carries, the Bengals won their
second AFC championship with a
21-10 victory over the Buffalo Bills.
It was a remarkable turnaround for
Cincinnati and coach Sam Wyche,
who finished 4-11 a year ago and was
criticized for gambling too much on
offense. This year, the Bengals are
14-4, and a gamble was key to
Sunday's victory.
On fourth-and-four from the
Buffalo 33 late in the third quarter,
Cincinnati punter Lee Johnson came
onto the field. But he was
accompanied by backup quarterback
Turk Schonert, who first lined up as
the blocking back. Schonert then
moved behind center and handed to
Stanley Wilson for a six-yard gain.
Woods ended the drive with his
second one-yard touchdown run of the
game.
The Buffalo offense was limited :to
a nine-yard Jim Kelly touchdown
pass to Andre Reed, which tied tie
score early in the second quarter, and
a 39-yard Scott Norwood field gdal
with 22 seconds left in the first half.
