BOSTON In the past few games, Michigan has had
difficulty coming out strong in the first period.
Against New Hampshire, that wasn't a problem. The
Wolverines looked good early, and led by defenseman
Bubba Berenzweig's two goals, Michigan defeated New
I Hampshire, 4-0, to advance to the NCAA championship
game against Boston College tomorrow at 7:30 p.m.
The Wolverines opened with a burst of energy in the
first period while the Wildcats -- by their own admis-
sion - emerged nervous. And the Wolverines took
advantage, outshooting New Hampshire 14-4 in the peri-

Hampshire captain Mike Mowers said.

Dedicated fans follow team to Boston

BOSTON - Thousands of college hockey
fans donning school jerseys from around the
nation, crowded Boston's FleetCenter yesterday
to join the cult-like following of the NCAA
hockey final four.
Coming from as far as Alaska, North Dakota
and Wisconsin, scores of fans returned to the
championship this year knowing their home-
town teams would not have a chance to grab the
Michigan State University fan Merrill
Shelden bought tickets for the event a year ago
without knowing whether his favorite team
would compete, as he has done for more than
"Sure you want your team there," Shelden
said, adding that he was disappointed by MSU's
loss this past Saturday, which eliminated the
Spartans from the run for the championship.
"But we don't just buy tickets because State is
going to be in it. We go because we want to go."
Die-hard Michigan fans said they come to the
tournament each year, wherever it is hosted, to
be part of the friendly and intimate atmosphere
not found at other NCAA sporting events.
"This is amateur sports the way it should be
- without all the production," said Azalia,
Mich. resident Larry Cymbola, who has attend-
ed the tournaments since Red Berenson was
named coach of the hockey team.
Cymbola said in each host city, lie and his
wife "run into the same people over and over."
Cincinatti resident and self-described hockey
junky Brian Johnson, who is attending his third
final four tournament, said the sport has main-
tained a wholesome nature despite its growing

Earlier in the Clark penalty, Turco came up big to keep
the game scoreless. New Hampshire forward Tom Nolan
slipped behind the Michigan defense and tried to beat
Turco between the legs, but the Michigan goaltender
made a tremendous save.
Michigan broke the game open midway through the
second period, scoring two goals just 43 seconds apart.
Michigan's second goal of the period came on its
fourth power play opportunity of the game.
Berenzweig took a pass from Bobby Hayes and fired
an innocent-looking wristshot on Matile. The
Wildcats' goaltender was screened on the play by
Michigan's Greg Crozier and didn't see the puck until
it was behind him.
"It was a wrist shot from the point, and I didn't really
see it," Matile said. "Coach said it might have hit some-
thing out front, but I don't know."
The Wolverines scored their second goal of the period
