Hayes out with
shoulder injury

DRYGAS

*

By James Goldstein
Daily Sports Writer
In Michigan's 4-2 victory over Lake
Superior on Saturday, which had 43
penalties among the two teams and
fights breaking out every which way, the
game was so brutal that someone was
bound to get hurt.
And unfortunately for Michigan,
someone did.
Bobby Hayes left the game with an
injury to his right shoulder. Today,
Hayes' prognosis was a slight shoulder
separation that makes him doubtful for
Friday's game against Maine at Joe
Louis Arena.
Hayes should
be available for
Michigan's con-
tests at Alaska-
Fairbanks on
Oct. 24-25.
If he's not
ready by then,
he'll be back the
I following week-
end, Michigan
assistant coach Mel Pearson said. But for
now, Hayes will not practice.
"I doubt if he'll skate this week,"
Pearson said. "I think we'll just hold him
off unless, Friday or Saturday, he might
come out on his own. He's in good
enough shape that he won't have to skate
too much."
Hayes suffered his injury five minutes
into the third period, when he was
checked into the boards in front of the
Michigan bench.
He immediately dropped his right
shoulder, hanging it down a bit, and
headed straight for the lockerroom with-
out assistance.
But Hayes didn't make it too far.
As the sophomore center was walking
down the hallway in Abel Arena, he sud-
denly fell to the ground in obvious pain.
That's when a Michigan trainer came to
his side.
Hayes, who Michigan coach Red

Berenson has used as the fourth line cen-
ter, contributed eight goals and 13 assists
last season, including clutch goals in the
NCAA tournament.
TuRco'S REVENGE: He may not want
to say it, but Michigan's victory must
have felt much sweeter for the
Wolverines' goaltender, Marty Turco.
Returning to his hometown of Sault
Ste. Marie, Ontario, Turco stopped 32
shots en route to the Michigan victory.
The victory avenged his two losses at the
Soo last season.
On Feb. 23, Lake Superior edged the
Wolverines, 5-4, in overtime. And on the
following night, Turco was pulled in the
Lakers' 7-3 victory.
Turco called it one of the worst
moments in his career, but now he has
something to replace that memory.
Revenge?
Maybe. But Turco remained humble.
"Now that I have time to think about
(redemption), maybe a little bit" Turco
said. "Coming into the game, I wasn't
really thinking about (revenge) too
much. It was a team game, not my
game."
FRESHMAN DEBUT: Berenson
scratched freshmen Kevin Magnuson
and Andrew Merrick, which left Sean
Peach as the lone freshman who played
against the Lakers.
Peach, who was involved in fracases,
had butterflies going into the game.
"I was real nervous at the start, but as
the game went on, I felt more comfort-
able" Peach said. "I found a comfort
zone.'
The freshman defenseman lost his
stick in the second period and had
Lakers on him when Michigan's Warren
Luhning grabbed one of the players and
put him in a headlock.
Peach didn't realize it.
"I just remember holding onto one
guy, and he started grabbing on my
cage," Peach said. "It's great to have your
teammates backing you up in that situa-
tion.'

damaged vertebra.
The injury was eerily similar to that
of Boston University's Travis Roy, who
fractured the fourth cervical vertebra
after slamming head-first into the
boards a little over a year ago. Roy is
still completely paralyzed.
Right now, Drygas is in a wait-and-
see situation. His parents are research-
ing possible spinal cord processes foP
the future. In the next couple of weeks,
they will decide what spinal injury reha-
bilitation center Drygas will be sent to.
The Drygas' are leaning toward one in
Denver.
For Drygas, who was able to move
his right index finger and use his biceps
muscles to make curling motions, the
situation is day-to-day.
"He is in good spirits," Mark Drygas
said. "But it goes in stages."
Soon after the injury, cards and get-
well messages flowed in from
Fairbanks, the rest of Alaska and well
wishers across the country.
Teammates and coaches have visited
often, and Drygas has been asking how
practice has been going and how the
team has been doing.
Last weekend, the Nanooks had their
first series of the the season, a home
and-home with rival Alaska-Anchorage
The Nanooks lost both highly-emotion-
al games.
Alaska-Fairbanks coach Dave
Laurion, who was on the other side of
the ice when the injury occurred, knew
his players had their minds on some-
thing else during the weekend's
games.
"Everyone goes through stages of
denial, shock, wanting to know why it
happened," Laurion said. "It's really
hard because there is no one to blame
other than fate and bad luck."
Last Tuesday night, Drygas spoke on
the telephone with Roy, and Erik's par-
ents spoke with Roy's parents.
Laurion also talked to Boston
University coach Jack Parker and
received advice on how to go about the
season in tough times.
"(Parker said) to consider Drygas as
still being part of the team," Laurio
said. "That helps to push on."

play before entering the conference
stretch run.
It is the last non-conference
match before the Wolverines close
out conference play.
The importance of this match
amplified by the Wolverines curre
1-4 conference record.
Strong play in the last five
matches would strengthen
Michigan's chances of getting to the
NCAA regionals.
A win today would be a step in
that direction.
"We need to play as a team,"
Smulders said. "We need a team
win. We need this to be a spark fo
the final five games."
A victory would even Michigan's
record at 6-6 and continue its domi-
nance of non-conference opponents.
Michigan is 4-2 against non-Big Ten
foes this season.
With only one match left out of
the conference, the Wolverines are
assured of a winning non-conference
record.
After today, the focus will shift to
improving the Wolverines' Big Te
mark.
Today will be the final tune-up
before the Wolverines start the cru-
cial five-game set.
The players know what they will
have to do to finish the season on a
high note.

"We need to finish in the circle,"
Smulders said. "You don't get many
opportunities to score, and those you
do, you have to convert on.
"We also have to make sure thC,
other team doesn't get those oppor-
tunities."

For the Daily
The Michigan women's golf team
closed out its fall season with a fourth-
place finish in the Lady Kat Invitational
over the weekend.
Kentucky captured the title at
Lexington's Spring Lake Country Club
with a score of 904. The Wildcats edged
out Memphis by eight strokes, and
Purdue by 10.

Kentucky's Lauri Berles took the
individual title, finishing at even par for
the tournament, five strokes ahead of
her nearest competitor.
Leading the way for the Wolverines
was senior Wendy Wastfall, posting a
three-day total of 226 strokes. Her
steady play throughout the tournament
earned her a fourth-place finish, miss-

after the second day.
"After the first round, we were in
really good shape," Westfall said. "We
knew everybody would be looking to
catch us. Unfortunately, we got
caught."
The Wolverines could not muster a
comeback on the final day and ended
the tournament in a fight to maintain

ing third by only
one stroke.
"This (score)

said. "I made be Iooki

a one-over 73 for
the first round,
slipping only Michigan won
slightly in the
final two rounds.
"Wendy was in second place after
the first day," Michigan coach Kathy
Teichert said. "She had a couple of dou-
ble bogeys on the last day. She could
have easily finished third."
Sophomore Sharon Park also played
well to start the tournament with an
even-par 72 in the first round. Together
with Westfall, the Wolverines grabbed
an early lead. But their short game

Teichert praised the consistent play
of her team and did not cite any spe-
cific problems.
"Going in, we knew there would-
be some tough competition,"
Teichert said. "We had some momen-
tum after the first round and just
tried to keep that going throughout
the tournament. We just didn't get
the two low numbers that we had the
