remaining in the first period. Parks'
goal came with 3:43 remaining in the
second period.
The game and overtime sessions
were dominated by the Falcons, who
outshot Michigan in every period.
Their domination of the overtime
period was most marked. The
Falcons outshot Michigan 10-1 in
the first overtime session and 9-2 in
the second.
Several times in the first two OT
sessions Bowling Green seemed on
the verge of ending the game. With
just under three minutes remaining
in the second overtime, Falcon right-
winger Marc Potvin and left-winger
Matt Ruchty skated in two-on-one
on Sharples.
Potvin's shot bounced off of
Sharples chest, then Ruchty had a
chance as the puck danced in front of
the Wolverine net.
Michigan had opportunities to
end the game, too. With less than
two minutes to go in the second
overtime period, Michigan's Ted
Kramer and Miles O'Connor
engineered a two-on-one fast break,
but Kramer was stopped at close
range by Bowling Green goalie Paul
Connell.
Friday night - Bowling Green
6, Michigan 4: Bowling Green's
Plageman scored a power-play goal

4:32 into the opening game to give
the Falcons an early lead.
Plageman 's goal was followed-up
just over two minutes later by Joe
Quinn, who stuffed in a rebound to
give the Falcons an early 2-0 lead.
Michigan fought back on goals
by Todd Brost and Mike Moes to tie
the game at 2-2.
The rest of the game was
characterized by Bowling Green
capitalizing on Michigan miscues.
Falcon winger Potvin scored from in
front of the net just a half-minute
into the second period to make it 3-
2.
Michigan made several bids to tie
the game on an ensuing power play,
but Potvin broke free off of a face
off and beat Sharples high for a
short-handed goal.
The Wolverines cut the score to
4-3 on a Ted Kramer goal, but his
goal was cancelled out by Quinn's
second goal mid-way through the
second period.
Michigan then pulled within 5-4
on a Don Stone goal early in the
third period but Quinn completed a
hat-trick with under two minutes
remaining to ice the game.
"The opportunities just came to
me tonight. It's just good solid play
with five guys working hard and I
got the goals," said Quinn.
"On the last goal Emerson did all
the work. I played 'waiting game and
Nelson made a great play to draw the
defenders in. He threw it over to me

and I just put it in," Quinn added.
Berenson was displeased after the
game. "It was a close game but from
our standpoint it wasn't a good
game. Our team is a good team
when we don't give up too many
mistakes. We gave up too many
goals tonight.
"Our mental defensive effort did
not have any edge on it tonight."
Saturday night - Michigan 4,
Bowling Green: With the college
careers of seniors O'Connor, Brost
and Jeff Urban hanging in the
balance, first-year player Denny
Felsner saw to it that the three
would wear the maize and blue for at
least one more game.
Felsner scored late in the first
period to give the Wolverines a 1-0
lead at the intermission despite
Bowling Green's 11-7 shots-on-goal
edge.
"Before the goal we killed two
power plays. Warren came up big
and we took advantage of our
chances," said Felsner.
Early in the second period,
Felsner broke in free on Connell. He
seemed to lose control of the puck as
he switched to his back-hand side,
but maintained control enough to
poke it past Connell.
Brad Turner and Helber added
goals later on in the period to put
Michigan up 4-0, virtually assuring
that there would be tomorrow for the
Wolverines.

JOSE JUAREZDaiy
First-year left-winger Denny Felsner scored two goals, including the game-winner, in Saturday night's 4-1
victory. The win evened the series at one game apiece.

Michigan fought hard
but the season is over

1,

We have to play like it's the last game of the
season and if we do, it won't be.
- Todd Brost after Friday's 6-4 loss.
They did. But they aren't.
Michigan played like it was the last game of the
seasonlast night. But unlike Brost's prophecy, the
season is over.
Despite his gutty performances, and the Wolverines
staving off elimination Saturday night with a 4-1
victory, there won't be any extensions to their season.
No Joe Louis finals. No NCAA tournament bid. It
all came crushing down when Denny Felsner's shot
bounced off a Bowling Green player's skate, ending
Michigan's 4-on-2 break, and giving the Falcons a
three-on-one advantage of their own. Rob Blake stuck
a rebound in the net.
And so where do we begin to tell about this
incredible match-up?
This was a game.
Win orlose,Wolverine goaltender Warren Sharples
deserves all the credit that this game even reached a
third overtime.
Read a few stats. First OT: Sharples 10 saves;
Bowling Green goaltender Paul Connell: one.
Who deserved to win? And who didn't get the
breaks or luck? A few times, a certain someone yelled
from the press box, "This has to do it," or "This is the
game."n
Sharples chose to differ.
Read another statistic. Saves second overtime:
Sharples nine; Connell: two.
With every one of those saves, a season was

prolonged.
But now, read one more telling statistic.
It reads: Bowling Green 4 Michigan 3.
And the season, when that flashed on the scoreboard
said one thing: the season could not be prolonged any
longer.
Is this how playoff games are supposed to end?
Well maybe.
Last year Michigan's season ended in the first-round
playoffs too. Western Michigan whitewashed the
Wolverines 10-0, after spitting the first two games in
tight, close action.
That surely was not a way to finish a season. Some
said the Wolverines lacked character after such a defeat.
Berenson said it was "a real shame." A real shame,
sure, just like last night. But the character question had
to be asked. The campus also quietly chuckled at a
bunch of guys who went out and chopped, shaved, and
did who knows what with their hair for unity and
momentum.
Thenthey returned from Kalamazoo 10-0 losers.
Season over.
This year the season came down and hung on an
enormously long playoff game. Classic playoff
hockey. When it ended the clock read 11:04 p.m.,
three-and-a-half hours after it began.
"We've been knocking at the door for a while,"
Michigan coach Red Berenson said after the crushing
defeat. "But we can't make that final step to get to Joe
Louis Arena.
"I think our team gave it all they had and that's all
you can ask for."
The season is over.

Duke, Syracuse defeat rivals

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
-Duke 88, North Carolina 86
CHAPEL HILL, North Carolina
- Danny Ferry scored 24 points as
ninth-ranked Duke rallied in the
second half yesterday to beat No. 5
North Carolina 88-86 and prevent
the Tar Heels from sharing the

regular-season title in the Atlantic
Coast Conference.
The game was as much a boost
for Duke as it was a downer for
North Carolina. The Tar Heels' loss
gave North Carolina State the
regular-season championship with a
10-4 record. North Carolina, at 9-5,
tied Duke for second place in the
conference.
"We haven't been in a lot of close
games that we've won this year,"
said Quin Snyder, who hit two 3-
pointers to start a rally that brought
the Blue Devils back from a 70-63
deficit with 7:08 left. "We need that
going into the tournament."
Five minutes later, Ferry hit a
12-foot jumper and Phil Henderson
added a free throw to give Duke an
83-79 lead.
