Jeers beat, tie MSU

Michigan hang

Daily Hockey Writer
not have been a sweep, but the
Michigan hockey team emerged vic-
torious from their first series with
Michigan State. The CCHA-leading
*olverines (7-2-1) won the first
game of the series, 4-2, and tied the
second game, 3-3.
Michigan State (3-4-3), who was
predicted to win the CCHA in the
preseason polls, didn't show any
signs of greatness on Friday. The
Spartans held a 1-0 lead for most of
the first period before Michigan
forward David Roberts tied up the
.gore at 14:53 in the period. Two
&d a half minutes later, junior
forward Ted Kramer gave the
Wolverines a 2-1 lead.
"It was a good win tonight,"
Michigan defender Patrick Neaton.
said. "We did what we had to do in
order to win. I think we carried the
play tonight."

;s on to first place in CCHA

The second period of the game
belonged to Michigan. Less than
two minutes into the period, left
winger Cam Stewart took a shot that
deflected off a Spartan defender,
sailed over goaltender Jason Muz-
zatti's head, and went into the net.
"It was a big goal," Michigan
coach Red Berenson said. "It gave us
a two-goal lead and, even though it
was a strange goal, it counted. It was
his first goal and I think he might
have been embarrassed by it. But it
Michigan forward Denny Felsner
scored again at 16:20 in the second
period to pad the Wolverine lead.
"The intensity level was ex-
cellent," Berenson said. "I think the
crowd helped that, plus our team
now has a little more confidence."
"Michigan is a strong club and
they played with great emotion,"
Michigan State coach Ron Mason
said. "There was a lot of hitting in

the game and their fans made plenty
of noise. They deserved to win."
Saturday night at Michigan State
was a completely different story as
the Wolverine defense had to prove
itself against a revitalized Spartan

to switch and it paid off. Gilmore did
a tremendous job in there."

Michigan State goalie Mike Gilmore makes a spectacular save of Denny Felsner's breakaway attempt as time runs
out in the second period of Saturday's contest. Gilmore replaced Jason Muzatti in goal after Michigan jumped out
to an early 3-0 lead. He didn't give up a goal the rest of the way, allowing the Spartans to salvage a 3-3 tie.

Michigan, Carlson give Fightin' Illini the boot, 22-17

Stats reveal

bigger margins
LIn 'M' victory
The statistics largely favored Michigan in almost all
areas. But statistics don't win games, only the final
score does that. And in Saturday's game, the Wolverines
did come out ahead with a narrow five-point victory.
David Yet Michigan's 22-17 victory
against Illinois was not indicative of
Hman the Wolverines' domination of the
Big Ten's second-rated defense (312
yards per game). The Michigan
offense pounded the Illini defense,
churning out 303 yards on the
ground, controlling the ball for 40
In total, the Wolverines amassed
432 yards, 22 first downs and
converted 50 percent of their third-
down conversions. This marked the
second straight week that the
opposition gained over 432 yards
against Illinois (Iowa gained 540 in its 54-28 victory
previous week).
With these numbers, you would think Michigan's
offense would have scored points like they were going
out of style. But once the offense got deep into Illini

Fake punt, five
field goals pace
Blue to victory
by Ryan Schreiber
Daily Football Writer
It would be a fair assessment to say Michigan settled
for its 22-17 victory over Illinois.
Riding on five J.D. Carlson field goals, the
Wolverines managed to stave off a final Illini trick play
while capitalizing on one of their own to put
themselves in serious New Year's Day bowl contention.
With six minutes left to play in the game, Illinois
reached into its magic bag of tricks one time too many
as quarterback Jason Verduzco came up empty on a flea-
flicker attempt. Michigan free safety Vada Murray,
playing deep in coverage, waited under the bomb like a
centerfielder, intercepted the ball and stepped out of
bounds inside the Michigan two-yard line.
And much like last year's 24-10 Michigan triumph,
the Wolverines were able to sustain a time-consuming
drive to run out the clock and run down the hopes of the
Illini faithful.
"It looked like last year," Michigan coach Gary
Moeller said. "When you take the ball in that situation
and come off your one-yard line, you've got to be

WAt sunrise, July 9, Paula
Finnegan worried about the
upcoming race. She knew that 10
more nervous mornings would
follow this one, too.
She was to drive the early shift,
beginning at 9 a.m. each day and
lasting for two to five hours. Yet,
she and her co-driver, David Noles,
realized it would take more than
d to win this race.
Finnegan's task was indeed a
challenge. Before her were 11 days
and 1,641 miles of road. The trip
was to take her from Florida to
Michigan as fast as possible, but
strategy, not speed, was the
penultimate factor. She and her 27
team members - students at the
University of Michigan - prepared
to drive Sunrunner and challenge 32
gher North American colleges in the
Tirst American solar car battle, the
GM Sunrayce USA.
General Motors' collegiate race
stemmed from the World Solar
Challenge, a 1,950-mile journey
from Darwin to Adelaide, Australia.
In 1987, GM won with its prototype
solar car, Sunraycer, in 44 hours and
55 minutes. With the second World
Solar Challenge slated to begin
besterday, the company sponsored its

approval of Hans Tholstrup, the
director of Australia's World Solar
Challenge. But as Tholstrup
questioned the Michigan team about
the weight of the car, Finnegan's
hopes faded, along with most of the
"He asked us how much the car
weighed, since in the book it was
listed lighter than it actually was,"
Finnegan said. "After we told him,
he pretty much said that we had no
chance to win. His real pessimistic
attitude scared a lot of us."
Only one driver was needed for
the first day, so when the race began,
a disheartened Finnegan chose to let
Noles drive the short, 75-mile
journey from EPCOT Center to
Floral City, Fla.
"There was so much excitement
and music and dancing by the Disney
cartoon characters, that it helped to
take the focus off what was really
happening," she said. "It was very
distracting and I could feel his
nervousness, so I was glad that he
drove the first day."
Finnegan began her journey,
then, on the second day. And though
she was already set back by the
negative comments, she had yet to
experience the worst of the trip.
In a sudden moment, not long
after she began her shift, one of
Finnegan's worst fears became a
