Sunday night is not a usual
testing time around the University of
Michigan, but it was last night for
the Wolverine hockey team.
With the CCHA season
underway, when every game and
every play counts, it's tough to get
an opportunity to try out different
lines and players.
But during an exhibition matchup
with the Western Ontario Mustangs,
the Michigan coaching staff got that
chance. Yet, it backfired as the
Wolverines fell to the Mustangs 6-4.
Frosh goalie Chris Gordon was
one who got his first chance to
prove his worth. With Tim Keough
and Steve Shields having already
received starting opportunities,
Gordon vied for his chance to get the
permanent spot in front of the net.
"I can't say I'm satisfied with the
goalkeeping," coach Red Berenson
said. "For the number of shots they
had, we gave up too many goals.
Our goalies need to have between an
80 and 90 percent save percentage
and right now they don't have that."
Among the others putting their
skates to the ice for the first time
this season were senior Kent Broth-
ers, junior center Mike Helber, and
sophomore transfer Paul Sancimino.
"Right now they (Brothers, Hel-
ber, Sancimino) haven't played in a
regular season game," Berenson said.
"As the season wears on and we get
injuries we're going to need
everybody, so it was good that they
Though the first penalty didn't
come until thirteen minutes and
twenty-two seconds into the first
period, the matchup soon turned into
a physical test.
At 15:13, first-year leftwing Cam
Stewart went flying into the net,
tripped from behind by Western
Ontario's Peter Jeffrey. Jeffrey
wound up with a two minute
roughing penalty while Stewart
received a helping hand to the
lockerroom with a bruised tailbone.
The extent of Stewart's injury will
not be available until further
examinations are made. Denny
Felsner also left after the first period
with a minor foot ailment which is

"We (Ouimet, Roberts, Felsner)
played better tonight. We were all
working well skating," Ouimet said.
"Last night we played terrible.
Tonight we were working a bit bet-
ter, we're all skating well. I think
we're playing better as a line."
Michigan's other goals were tal-
lied by first-year players Mike
Stone, David Oliver, and Ward, who
came up with his first score of the
season with only one tick left on the
clock to punctuate the victory. Ward
intercepted a Falcon drop pass at cen-
ter ice and blew past the defenders for
"I'm not a fast skater, but all of a
sudden the jets turned on," Ward said
of his goal. "When I took the shot I
was a little off-balance and the puck
hit the goalie right in the left shoul-
der and it was sitting there. He fell
back into the net with the puck. It
wasn't a beautiful goal, but it went
in and it counts."
The Falcons, too, were able to
make their shots at the net count.
They scored their four goals on nine-
teen shots on goal. One reason for
this high percentage is Michigan's
continuing problems between the
"It was a tough game for a goalie
to play because he (Tim Keough)
didn't get a lot of work," coach Red
Berenson said. "And when he did get
work I thought there were times he
was a little tentative. Our number
one job is still up for grabs. We're

Fight inspires icers to
knock out Falcons

Daily Hockey Writer
Over the course of the epic saga that is the Central Collegiate Hockey
Association season, seemingly insignificant events can end up being the
turning point in a season.
For Michigan, most of these events seem to occur against Bowling
Green. Last season, the Wolverines overcame a two-goal deficit on the
road against the Falcons, only to fall in overtime, 9-8.
The loss was obviously disappointing, as it was the Wolverines' third
in four regular season games against their bitter rivals. However, the full
impact of the game would not be realized until after the conclusion of the
season, when the NCAA tournament selection committee decided to pass
over Michigan while inviting the Falcons.
Many people felt the selection committee erred. After all, Michigan
beat Bowling Green in the consolation game of the CCHA playoffs and
had a better overall record. But looking back, Michigan coach Red
Berenson feels that if the Wolverines had held on to their lead that night
in Bowling Green, the controversy would have been avoided.
It was for this reason that the Wolverines' home-and-home series with
the Falcons last Thursday and Friday merited special attention despite
being only the third and fourth games of the season for each team.
The series did not get off to an auspicious start for the Maize and Blue,
as they received a sound beating Thursday night at Bowling Green, 8-3,
and fell behind, 4-3, late in the second period of Friday's game at Yost.
But the tide turns quickly in the world of sports, and in this case, i.
turned in precisely 31 seconds. That's how long it took before Michigan's
Denny Felsner erased the Bowling Green lead, knotting the score at 4-4.
In the celebration that followed the goal, words were exchanged
between the two teams, and soon, words turned into punches. The mai
event featured Wolverine defenseman Chris Tamer against Llew Ncwana,
with Michigan's Aaron Ward versus Jim Solly on the undercard.
Since fighting is against the rules of hockey (believe it or not), people
do not like to point to these altercations as being positive events. In this
case, though, the change in the Wolverines' play after the skirmish was
Mark Ouimet put the Wolverines ahead one minute later, and the
Wolverines tallied two more goals in the third period.
Meanwhile, Bowling Green never scored again.
The fight may have more long-reaching effects, too. Here was the
rookie Ward brawling alongside veterans like Felsner and Tamer.
"I think (the fight) shows that we're starting to come together as a
team," co-captain David Harlock said. "Everyone's going to stick up for
each other around here."
Championship teams do not have dissension in their lockerrooms. The
Wolverines showed Friday night that they are not going to stand around
and watch one of their teammates get abused without stepping in to defend
him. Michigan demonstrated they have that look of a champion.
Okay, maybe we're making too much out of this.
Yes, it was only the fourth game of the year.
And, yes, just one night earlier, "champions" was just about the lash
word anyone would use to describe the Wolverines.
And besides, when it gets down to it, it was just a fight. Fights don't
win hockey games. Solid defense and goaltending do.
But remember, this was Bowling Green and these things have a way of
coming back later. So come this March, Llew Ncwana and the rest of the
Falcons may be the people looking back with regret at the game that got

as the Varsity Arena, it has been
unable to repair the disintegrating
outdoor courts that remain.
Tennis, a spring sport, is meant
to be played outdoors. Big Ten
competition is primarily played on
outdoor courts - which is
impossible at Michigan.
"The current outdoor courts are
just not satisfactory at all. We have
no courts that we could use for inter-
collegiate competition," Weidenbach
said. "We believe, and the tennis
coaches agree, that we could have a
successful program with the (new)
facilities. Our highest priority is to .
have outdoor courts"
The only method that the
program has for hosting intercol-
legiate events is by renting space at
the Liberty Sports Complex, and the
Huron Valley Tennis Club in Ann
"In order to carry on a
competitive program in men's and
women's tennis, we must rent
courts," Weidenbach said. Within the
resource-rich Michigan athletic
department, this situation is aston-
ishing, and unacceptable.
The complex will be built on the
southwest corner of the University
golf course, on South Main Street,
near Ann Arbor/Saline Road. The
plan allots for 12 outdoor and eight
indoor courts, locker-rooms, and
parking space. The land space would
be approximately ten acres.
Skepticism was raised about the
location of the site, because the
proposed site is a long hike from the
rest of the athletic campus.
"I think its quite a ways away
from the athletic complex," Regent
Thomas Roach (D- Saline) said. "It's
bigger than the Stadium and the Law
Quad, and it seems big for only 12
The athletic department searched
for available land closer to the
athletic complex, but was left with
no other options.
"We don't like to be that far,"
Weidenbach said, "but we don't have
an alternative site."
