hounds Gophers, 35-18

Blue beats slow start, Welborne loss to keep Little Brown Jug

Seniors write final
*chapter of 'M' careers
Tape, empty crushed cups, and paper shreds littered the floor of
Michigan's lockerroom after the Wolverines' 35-18 victory over Minnesota
Saturday. A half-hour after the game, the room was emptying out with just
a few clusters of reporters and players remaining.
Fullback Jarrod Bunch was one such straggler. He might have been
hanging around to bask in his 53-yard, "What am I doing in the secondary?"
run from scrimmage. Or he might have been soaking up the fact that it was
the last time he would ever have the chance to break a career-long run in
Michigan Stadium.
Bunch, along with eight other starting seniors, walked out of the
lockerroom of Michigan Stadium for the last time yesterday.
"I really thought about it on the bus trip over," Bunch said. "It's like
writing a book - 20 years from now I'll be thinking about how I was
coming to the stadium for the last time.
"It's a feeling that's hard to explain and it really doesn't hit you until it's
over. You just work to make it the best experience you can."
When asked if the game held special meaning (beyond the all-importance
of keeping the Little Brbwn Jug here in Ann Arbor), senior co-captain John
Milligan replied, "I got to thinking about it and I didn't really know what to
expect when I first came here.
"There were ups and downs but more ups. It (being the seniors' last
game) was our motivational theme before the game."
Senior strong safety Tripp Welborne was wheeled off the field with a
knee injury.
Senior T.J Osman left the lockerroom before the media crush.
Senior offensive lineman Tom Dohring simply said "it was a pretty
emotional day."
Senior offensive lineman Dean Dingman said, "We just wanted to finish

After the first 30 minutes, the
Wolverines found themselves in
trouble in Saturday's final game on
the turf at Michigan Stadium. But it
took a knee injury to safety Tripp
Welborne in the third quarter to help
turn things around, enabling Mich-
igan to walk off the turf for the final
time triumphantly.
The Wolverines scored three
times in an 11:46 stretch of the third
and fourth quarters to take a com-
manding 28-10 lead, turning a three-
point halftime deficit into a 17-point
victory, 35-18.
"The injury to Tripp did bring the
team back together," tailback Ricky
Powers said. "We had to make
adjustments at halftime, but when
we got things together, we got the
job done."
The win kept the Little Brown
Jug in Ann Arbor for the fourth
consecutive year and marked the end
of the 22-year run of artificial turf.
Next season, the playing field will
be covered by Prescription Athletic
Turf, otherwise known as natural
grass.
The injury to Welborne will keep
him out of next week's game against
Ohio State. He will probably under-
go orthroscopic surgery today.
Despite the stellar play of the
Wolverines in the second half. Mich-

igan coach Gary Moeller summed up
the team's play in the first two quar-
ters differently.
"It was kind of an ugly first
half," he said.
And the 102,112 in attendance
will attest to that. The Michigan
offense gained only 125 yards on
seven first downs, controlling the
ball for only 10:06 as Minnesota
jumped out to a 10-7 halftime lead.
The Gopher defense caused many
problems for the Wolverines in the
first half. "They came after us with
all kinds of stuff," Moeller said.
"They decided to bring everybody at
us to stop the run and did all kind of
stunts."
"Today we were fortunate to walk
off with the Jug," fullback Jarrod
Bunch said. "It's a good thing we
got it going in the second half."
Senior linebacker John Milligan
agreed. "Everything is momentum,
and we came out in the second half
and swung the momentum to our
side."
In the second half, Michigan
gained 244 yards and put the ball in
the endzone four times. After a 34-
yard punt return by Welborne to the
Gopher 20-yard line, the Wolverines
needed five plays to take a 14-10
advantage. Bunch took an Elvis
Grbac pass in the left flat and scam-
pered 11 yards down the left sideline

.Icers split series with Lakers

by John Niyo
Daily Hockey Writer
SAULT STE. MARIE - Lake
Superior was trying to tell the
Michigan hockey team something
this past weekend. But the Wolver-
ines weren't listening. .
The loud, blaring foghorn in the
Norris Center that is used to signal
aker goals went off early and often
Friday night. In fact, it went off ten
times during the 10-5 series opening
slaughter.
But maybe it was enough to
deafen the Wolverine players. Maybe
if they had toned the horn down a lit-
tle or maybe if they hadn't scored so
many goals, then maybe the Michi-
gan players would have heard what
Othe Lakers were saying.
What they were saying was they
were the class of the league. They
were saying that Michigan wouldn't
be needed anymore. Thank you for
warming our seat atop the CCHA

standings. See you in January - the
next time the two times face each
other.
But Michigan took it upon them-
selves to silence Lake Superior and
their obnoxious horn Saturday night,
scrapping its way to a 4-3 overtime
victory. Michigan earned a split that
kept them in a tie for first place with
the Lakers.
"We just didn't let them play as
well Saturday as we did Friday,"
Michigan coach Red Berenson said.
"We paid our dues last night and
came out better tonight. It was an
exciting series. Last night was our
biggest low and tonight was our
biggest high."
Saturday's contest didn't resemble
Friday's at all. A scoreless first pe-
riod showcased two of the top
penalty-killing units in the league.
But in the second period, Berenson
again switched lines and the change
paid dividends.

Berenson was forced to shuffle
his lines going into the weekend due
to an injury to right wing David
Oliver. But after Friday's debacle, he
had to make further changes.
"I had to do something," Beren-
son said. "Outside of our power
play, we couldn't get anything going
(Friday). We were just standing still
out there."
The reunited line of Denny Fel-
sner, Mark Ouimet, and David
Roberts then showed why it is ar-
guably the best line in college
hockey.
Ouimet took a pass from
Roberts, skated across in front of the
goal and backhanded a shot that
bounced off the chest of Laker goalie
Darrin Madeley. Felsner was there to
put back the rebound for a 1-0
Michigan lead at the 11 minute
mark.

STEADY LIKE A ROCK
'M' icer Don Stone captains young, talented
hockey team with consistency and experience

Wolverine goalie Steve Shields eyes the puck in action last weekend at Michigan State. Shields came up big
again Saturday, making 26 saves in Michigan's 4-3 overtime win.

It seems odd that there ever
could have been doubts about
senior hockey co-captain Don
Stone. Certainly, the doubts about
the Utica, Mich., native don't
exist anymore. There was a time,
however, when people wondered
just who he was. Oddly enough,
one of those people was Michigan
hockey coach Red Berenson.
"We were all saying 'Who is
this Don Stone kid?' and nobody
knew whether he could play or
not," Berenson said. "I mean, we
all knew he led his junior league
in scoring, but he does things
quietly and he really didn't stand
out in the crowd."
Luckily though, Berenson
didn't pass him over like other
schools did.
"I remember making a trip to
Western Canada to watch some
kids play - guys like Kerry
Russell who ended up going to
(Michigan) State - and then I
realized that Donnie Stone was
probably as good as any of them
and he was right here in our own

with the likes of Hobey Baker
candidate Denny Felsner and last
year's CCHA Rookie-of-the-Year,
David Roberts, it would be hard
for anyone to steal many
headlines. That's just fine with
Stone.
"It's basically experience that I
bring to the team, with us being
as young as we are, and with the
inexperience that we have," Stone
said. "We've got nine freshman
and only four seniors and even the
sophomores haven't been through
a whole lot. But the four of us,
the seniors, we have, so I have to
help the team out in any way I
can."
He can and has helped the new
crop of talent that is skating
around Yost for the first time this
year. With only those four seniors
back - Stone, Jim Ballantine,
Kent Brothers, Mark Sorensen -
rookies like David Oliver, Aaron
Ward, Cam Stewart, David
Wright, Steve Shields, and Mike
Stone (yes, they're brothers) have
all played large parts in
Michigan's early successes. And
Don Stone has plaved a large part

previous three seasons. As Stone
leads the Wolverines in his final
season wearing the Maize and
Blue, there are no more doubts.
You can't doubt a guy who has
played in 135 of a possible 136
games since he came to Michigan.
You can't doubt a guy who is
Michigan's active career scoring
leader with 135 points in those
135 games. And no one does, not
anymore.
No one who knows Michigan
hockey wonders who Don Stone is

As ferocious as a Wolverine may
be, when attacked from the air, even
it may fall.
And that's just what happened
Friday night, as the Bowling Green
Falcons 'swooped in and dismantled
the Michigan volleyball team in
three games, 15-11, 15-11, 15-13.
"I think this might be our worst
performance of the year," Michigan
coach Peggy Bradley-Doppes said.
The only bright spot on an
otherwise gloomy evening was
senior hitter Julia Sturm. With her
match-high 13 kills, Sturm set a
Michigan single-season record with
380 kills, passing the mark of 376
set in 1985 by Andrea Williams.
And Sturm still has two matches left
to increase her record.
