Falcons deal 'M' third straight loss

Daily Hockey Writer
Bowling Green, OH - Mustering
only six shots on goal in the second
and third periods, the Michigan
hockey team lost 6-3 last night in
Bowling Green Ice Arena.
"We just didn't generate the
dffense," said Michigan coach Red
Berenson. "I thought our team
played well in the first, but
,(Bowling Green) had the lead and
,played well with that."
The Wolverines were held
*coreless for 35 minutes and 50
seconds after Mike Helber's goal
early in the second period tied the
game at three goals apiece.
"We were not outnumbered often
coming back up the ice," said
Bowling Green coach Jerry York. "I
'thought we did a good job
"I thought tonight's game was
learly the best we played
defensively all year."
Kevin Dahl's power-play goal
Iwith 12:39 remaining in the second
period proved to be the game winner.
Michigan was able to kill off a two-
man advantage for one minute, but
with only seven seconds remaining
on Todd Copeland's penalty the
Falcons were able to convert the
one-man advantage to take a 4-3 lead
they never relinquished.
Bowling Green entered the game
with the top-ranked power play in
the CCHA and converted three of
four power plays on the night.
"They have a good power play and
we knew what to expect but their
shots were going in," said Michigan
left-winger Ryan Pardoski.
Alex Roberts added, "They've got
a good power play and you can't
give them any opportunities, but we
gave them the chances and they
"Penalties were costly, proven
with their three power play goals,"
Berenson said. This was seen early
as Bowling Green jumped out to a 1-
0 lead 1:37 into the game on
defenseman Rob Blake's slapshot
from the right point as Randy
assists on the night. "I think he's
really developing into a very fine
player," York said.
"They played Nelson (Emerson) a
lot tighter," Blake said. "They
worried about (Emerson) and another
guy is going to be open."
However, Michigan responded
with two goals by Jim Ballantine
and Mark Ouimet, his first college
goal, to even the score at 2-2.
Emerson's goal with only 25
seconds left in the first period pushed
the Falcons ahead, 3-2, as Roberts
sat in the penalty box for a high-
"The call could have gone either
way," Roberts said. "They called it
on me, but they could have called a
charge on him as well."
But it was in the second and third
periods where Michigan lost the
game. "In the second, we let them
take the play to us," Roberts said.
Right winger Ted Kramer added:
"They had control of the midzone,"
referring to the Wolverines inability
to penetrate the Falcons blue line.
Kwong sat in the penalty box for a
holding penalty. Blake later scored
an empty net goal to cap the

dominant player on the ice tonight,"

The Michigan women's swim team travels to the Great Plains for its
first collegiate competition of the 1989-90 season.
The squad travels to Iowa City today to challenge Nebraska, Brigham
Young and the host Hawkeyes in an invitational meet. Both Brigham
Young and the Cornhuskers look to be tough adversaries. Nebraska was
the Big Eight conference champ last year and BYU sports a crowd of
Yet, coach Jim Richardson expects the Hawkeyes to offer the greatest
"Iowa has more depth than BYU and Nebraska," Richardson explained.
"They have a large freshman group. They remind me of our team four
The Hawkeyes also have momentum in their favor. They are riding
high after a huge upset last weekend over 18th-ranked Minnesota.
Despite Iowa's advantages, Hawkeye assistant coach Jim Sheridan
feels that Michigan is definitely "the team to beat."
"At this point in time, Michigan is the top team coming in here," he
said. "I know we can compete as far as depth goes, but they are certainly
ahead of us in the area of top first and second place swimmers."
One factor that could hinder the Wolverines is their recent training
schedule. They are now experiencing their most difficult workouts of the
season. "It's going to be interesting to see how they respond coming out
of the hard workouts," Richardson said.
In spite of this, Michigan still heads into the meet as the top
contender. "On paper we're the strongest squad going in," Richardson
expounded. "I'm looking for everyone to swim faster than in the
Beyond the competition, fifth-year coach Richardson has a deeper stake
in the fields of Iowa. "I have fond memories of Iowa City. I worked under
Dr. (Peter) Kennedy (Iowa head coach) for three years," he reminisced.
Intra-squad meet begins
men's swimming season
by Douglas Donaldson
Daily Sports Contributor
The Michigan men's swim team begins its season today with the
annual Maize and Blue intra-squad meet. The event will give the coaching
staff an opportunity to judge both the strengths and weaknesses of this
"In the veterans, we look for good quality swims. We expect that from
them," said assistant coach Mark Noetzel. "We know they have the self-
motivation (to do well)." Noetzel is entering his first term as an assistant,
under head coach Jon Urbanchek.
Urbanchek will be working with a young group of swimmers this
year, with only a handful of seniors on the roster. Among the seniors is
co-captain Brent Lang, last year's NCAA champion in the 50-yard
freestyle and 1988 Olympic gold medalist in the 400-meter freestyle relay.
Also returning from last year is junior Mike Barrowman. Barrowman was
named U.S. Swimmer of the Year after setting the world record in the
200-meter breaststroke twice last summer.
Although the team is young, the outlook for the new season is good.
Urbanchek is looking toward a fifth consecutive Big Ten championship,
with chances for the NCAA title. Last season, the Wolverines placed third
nationally, behind Texas and Stanford.
"The possibility is there for the win. It's just a matter -of getting the
right improvements from certain people," Noetzel explained. "Our big
guns have to maintain [last year's times] and the freshmen have to

This will be the first time since

the close of the season, but also the

Patti Farley. This game will mean
