Waterloo, 8-2


First opponent no match for Blue

By Dan Stillman
Daily Sports Writer
In the tradition of Guelph and York,
the University of Waterloo visited Ann
Arbor as the Michigan hockey team's
first opponent of the season. And like
Guelph and York, Waterloo was pounded
by the Wolverines.
The Warriors, Canada's second-best
college team last season, were over-
matched by the Wolverines, 8-2, yester-
day night in front of 1.171 at the Ann
Arbor Ice Cube.
Michigan (1-0) scored eight goals for
the third straight year in its season open-
The formula for Michigan was simple
- take advantage of penalties, some-
thing Waterloo (3-2-0) could not do.
Both teams each committed 13 penal-
ties for 26 minutes, and both went on the
power-play eight times. The Wolverines
converted on four of those advantages
while Waterloo could only manage one
power-play goal.
"I was hoping for a closer game,
Michigan coach Red Berenson said.
"Not that they were a bad team, but they
took too many penalties."
Berenson did give his team some
credit for creating the penalty situations.
"We forced some of the penalties with
our strong play in the offensive zone,"
Berenson said. "So you have to give our

Meanwhile, Michigan goalie Marty
Turco chatted at the opposite blue line
with Joe Harris, the Warriors netmin-
der, completely unconcerned that their
teams were fighting at the other end of
the rink.
It was that kind of night.
As it turns out, Turco and Harris
played against each other in the
Midwestern Junior B league in Ontario.
"We were just talking about old times
and congratulating each other and
(wishing each other) the best of luck
this season," Harris said.
When players are reminiscing in the
middle of a game, it's a good indication
that nobody is taking the game very
Luhning knows the team can't play
that way any longer.
"I think we've got to get some inten-
sity in practice, get our minds set that
the season is going to start again," the
senior right wing said. "It's serious
business - it's not time to be joking
around like the Blue-White game and
the game tonight."
Saturday will be the first test to see
where the Wolverines stand.
"It's going to be interesting to see what
happens. I think we're going to have to
work a lot harder than we did today,"
Luhning said. "All the veterans on the
team know what it takes, I just hope we
still have it in us from last year."

team some credit, too."
The Warriors' first penalty, a holding
call, came just 24 seconds into the game.
Following the penalty, senior left wing
.Jason Botterill promptly scored th
Wolverines' first goal of the season with
junior Bill Muckalt assisting at 1:47.
"It's pretty much all the same guys on
the power play (as last season), so we're
pretty familiar with what we're trying to
do." Muckalt said. "I think the key to
success is just moving the puck around.'
Waterloo got its chance to move the
puck around with a five-on-three advan-
tage just past the midway point of the
first period. Down 2-0, the Warrior
scored their only power-play goal of th
night following interference penalties by
defender Chris Fox and right wing Sean
Ritchlin. On the power play, the Warriors
sent a flurry of shots toward goaltender
Marty Turco, until right wing Peter
Brearley finally found the net at 13:27.
The Wolverines also found them-
selves down two men midway through
the second period, but Waterloo failed to
take advantage of that power play.
'We took some poor penalties, and
particularly when you're already a Man
short and you take that second penalty to
put you two men short," Berenson said.
"We're not gonna' be able to kill those
off against a real strong team."

solid effort
at Classic.

For the Daily
With the regular season still several
months away, the Michigan men's ten-
nis team is trying to figure out exactly
how it stacks up against the competi-
tion. It began this process with a solid
showing over the weekend at the
Carolina Classic in Chapel Hill, N.C.
In a tournament characterized by
strong competition, the Wolverince!.
held their own with teams such as
Duke, North Carolina, Harvard and
Notre Dame.
Team results were not kept, but mot
of the Wolverines posted at least two
victories in the three-day tournament.
The event focused on players gaining
experience, and players continued
whether they won or lost.
The tournament was arranged so 16
players and eight doubles teams
relatively small number of entrie,
players found themselves facing their
teammates in their third and fourth
games. As a result of this, the toura-
ment formula was scrapped to vary
competition. Each athlete ended up
playing four singles and two or three
doubles matches.
"The beauty of this tournament., is
that, whine there were not a ton of play-
er, the quality of the competition wa
very good," Michigan coach Brian
Eisner said.
Harvard and North Carolina were
the top teams in their respective dis-
tricts last year, an honor the Wolverines
held as well. Eisner was confident that
his team compared favorably to these
worthy opponents.
"My feeling going into this competi-
ti(n, judging from our play and prac-
tice, was that we had a chance to on-

trol this competition and dominate,"Ihe
This turned out to be an unreason-
able expectation, Eisner said:
"I was surprised at the level of play
there; many of the teams were like us."

Michigan right wing Bill Muckalt, who scored one of the Wolverines' eight goals last night and assisted on another, races
down the ice last night. Muckalt was Michigan's third-leading scorer with 58 points last season.
