Yost takes no backseat
to Bowling Green arena
By DARREN EVERSON
Daily Hockey Writer
BOWLING GREEN - Some say that Michigan fans aren't the loudest
around; others say watching sporting events here is nothing special.
To such comments I say take heart, Wolverine faithful - at least you don't
go to Bowling Green.
Now, I'm not making any rude statements about the university itself. There
are probably thousands upon thousands of people who love going to school
there, some of which love it so much they chose it over Michigan.
But when it comes to watching a hockey game, there's simply no compar-
ing the two.
True, Michigan probably has more money to spend on stuff like hockey
arenas since it's the premier school in its state. Bowling Green, meanwhile,
must compete for cash with Toledo, Akron, Dayton, Ohio University - all
of which are similar in size - and Ohio State, which is considerably larger.
Because of that, one should be willing to look past the fact that the Bowling
Green Ice Arena is so small the puck did indeed hit the roof during Saturday's
But its glaring lack of a band and its replacement - an organ and an organ
player who adds a nauseating 'swing' to the simplest of tunes - cannot slide
by without a comment or two.
People have said that bands here, no matter what the sport, play 'The
Victors' a bit much. Ladies and gentlemen, you have not experienced repeti-
tion until you've bopped to 30 or so 'We Will Rock You' routines; one for each
player on the Falcon roster, perhaps.
As one might guess that gets a bit bothersome, as do the Falcon mascots,
who fortunately do not have counterparts at Michigan.
However annoying the mascots were, 5,006 of them as spectators would surely
have made for a better cheering section than the 5,006 that showed up instead. If
the Falcon faithful are any indication of what the rest of the CCHA has to offer,
Michigan will lead the league in at least one category - fan support.
Granted, the Bowling Green fans did pack the arena (with a little help from
some Wolverine supporters), and that's great to see. Next time, though,
hopefully they can buy a little imagination along with their tickets. Organized
cheers, such as the ones heard at Yost, do not exist at Bowling Green, unless the
organ player helps them along.
And worse yet, what is this group saying when they pelt the evil Wolverines
with a vicious chant of "Lake State!"? "Okay, okay, so maybe you guys are better
at this hockey thing than us, but at least there's somebody out there who can beat
Please. Maybe Michigan fans and arenas aren't the best on earth. But if the
game is hockey, there certainly is a better place to play it than at Bowling Green.
Ron Sacka and linemates Rick Willis and Warren Luhning tallied five points between them against Michigan State.

passed it out front and I just shot it."
When Michigan State came into
Yost Ice Area, it was undefeated in the
CCHA and ranked No.2 in the country
in three of four national polls.
The Spartans (6-1-1, 7-1-1) left as
losers and without much of the intimi-
dating presence that preceded them@
The Wolverines pierced the armor
Coming into the game Buzak
sported a paltry 1.47 goals against
average, but Michigan scored two
goals in the game's first three min-
"We knew they were agood team,"
Berenson said. "We knew that it was
important for us to get off to a g
start at home and get the crowd intotr
In the first two periods, the Wol-
verines outshot their intrastate rivals,
32-7, and finished the game with a 40-
15 shot advantage.
"We had the momentum, there was
no question (about it)," Berenson said.
"The lead gives you that confidence,
and we built on that."
Despite closingthe margin to3-2*
the end of the first period, the Spartans
could never rebound from Michigan's
"They came in and had all the emo-
tion," Michigan State coach Ron Ma-
son said. "We weren't ready for that."
Anson Carter, who scored two of
the Spartans' three goals, agreed.
"(Michigan) fed off the crowd and
did not slow down," Carter said.
Senior Ron Sacka led a balanc,
scoring attack with two goals, while
Gordon and sophomore Mike Legg
each added a goal and an assist.
The win was especially big for the
senior class because it was the last
contest between the teams at Yost this
season. The victory also helped make
up for last year when the Spartans
snapped the Wolverines 17-game co
ference win streak. Michigan St
came into a Yost and snapped that
streak with a 6-3 triumph.
"You always get up for Michi-
gan State," Sacka said. "They came
in here last year and beat us ... the
senior class wanted to win bad be-
cause this is the last time we play

A quick glance at the scoring lead-
ers for the Michigan hockey team
doesn't turn up any real surprises.
The names Botterill, Gordon,
Morrison and Hilton seem quite at
home atop the list.
A glimpse at the boxscore for
Friday's game against Michigan State
would suggest an error.
Sacka? Willis? Luhning?
What are these guys doing on the
scoring side of the game summary?
Shouldn't they be listed under the

Against the Spartans, this trio took
on the role of scorers, notching two
goals and three assists between them.
"We know our main job is to kill
penalties, to play defense, and when
we get the chance, put the puck in the
net," Sacka said. "You expect your
top three lines to score and if your
fourth line scores, it's a bonus.
"Rick, Warren and I had a little
talk and we wanted to be more of a
factor this week. We hadn't been a

we decided it was time to step it up a
The checking line's production
was especially timely since it came
on a night when the team's top line
was held to one goal and two assists.

our fourth line scores then we're prob-
ably going to win or be in the game.

tween the three of them, they had one
goal. We need everyone to step up and
be counted. We got goals from players
that we count on. They may not lead
our team in scoring, but they chip in
with timely goals."
Sacka scored twice in the first
period of the Wolverines' matchup
against their intrastate nemesis. The
tallies were also the senior's first goals
of the season.
"Those were the two biggest goals
of my career," Sacka said. "I wanted to
be a difference in the game.
"I read Mike Knuble's biography
in the program tonight," Sacka said.
"(Knuble) said 'It doesn't matter if I
score, I want to be able to be seen on
the ice. I want people to know I was
out there regardless ofif Iscore.' I kind
of took that to heart. I wanted to be
known out there."
Sacka's second goal came 18 sec-
onds after Michigan State's Anson
Carter scored a power-play goal to
cut the Wolverines' lead to one. Michi-
gan was still a man down after the
Carter tally as Willis remained in the
penalty box to serve an interference
penalty on goaltender Marty Turco.
John Madden got the puck and
skated down the right side. He pulled
his stick back as if he was going to take
a slap shot, but instead of firing a shot,
slid the puck to Sacka who netted his
third career shorthanded goal.
"John Madden made a great play,"
Sacka said. "He set me wide open. All
I had to do was direct (the puck)."
Saturday night against Bowling
Green, the trio was back playing de-
fense and killing penalties. The three
assumed theirregularroles, butFriday's
game was a welcome shift.
"Our role is to check and make it
hard on the opponents," Willis said.
"It's definitely a bonus when we chip
in with a couple of goals, and its fun
to get rewarded once and a while with
a couple of points."
