'M', Ferris fights commonplace

By Jon Schwartz
Dal, Sports Writer
BIG RAPIDS - "Every game is dif-
fercbt - that's why we play all of these
Such were Michigan coach Red
Berenson's thoughts following his team's
5-4 loss at Ferris State on Saturday night.
In some respects, Berenson was right
- the result was certainly different, with
Michigan winning at Yost Ice Arena on
Friday night 4-1.
But in other ways, the players from each
team tried to prove the Wolverines' leg-
endary coach incorrect: Boys will be boys,
and whenever Michigan faces off with the
Bulldogs, there's trouble brewing.
"The clock runs out, the bad blood on
the ice ----a couple of guys got into it-
but all of a sudden their team's on the ice,
so we jump," Michigan associate head
coach Mel Pearson said after witnessing
Saturday night's game-ending melee.
Like a lot of people in the building, he
was struggling to make sense of exactly
what had happened on the Ewigleben Ice
Arei: surface as the final buzzer sound-
ed. But a look back in the teams' history
proves that nothing should seem too out
of the ordinary.
On Feb. 5 last season, the two teams
faced-off at Yost and combined for 54
penalty minutes.
The year before, they engaged in a
bral after Andrew Merrick collided
with Bulldogs' goalie Vince Owen, lead-
ing the entire Ferris State team to mob
Merrick and precipitating the two teams
to go after each other.
This past weekend, the two teams took
it up a notch, with a big fight in each
game leaving only one question to be
asked. What's left for next year?
"It happens everytime we get together
likd that," Ferris State senior left wintt
Rob Liohtfoot said. "We just don't like
each other, I guess.
Perhaps that's an understatement.
On Friday night, Michigan's Mike
Cammalleri got cross-checked into the
Ferris State crease 1:01 into the third
period. He knocked over Owen and the
fight was on.
Michigan's Dave Huntizicker and Jed
Ortmeyer and Ferris State's Chad McIver
and captain Jim Dube were all given
game disqualifications, making them
ineligible for Saturday night's game. A
combined nine penalties were handed out.
Saturday night's brawl put Friday's
small quarrel to shame. Michigan's Jeff
Jillson laid a hit on Chad Kunitz near the
buzzer and Kunitz responded with a slash
to Jillson after the horn. With the Ferris
players jumping over the boards to cele-
brate the victory - their first of the con-

i A ,$ 30 :N .

ference season - small fights broke out,
later escalating to a full-scale war encom-
passing the entire surface.
Where the ice was clear of players dur-
ing the fight, it was stacked with random
pieces of equipment, everything from
sticks to mouthpieces.
Three players from each side were
given game disqualifications, including
Michigan's Mike Komisarek, David
Wyzgowski and Kevin O'Malley. The
Bulldogs' Owen, the same goalie that got
involved in the fight with Merrick two
years ago, was also kicked out.
"It obviously was an intense game,
O'Malley said. "Jillson had two guys on
him, and obviously he can probably han-
dle two guys but I was just going to push
one of them off of him."
What ended up happening was a tussle

between O'Mallev and Owen

in fact,

There are those who shy away from
challenges. And then there are those
who travel 9,000 miles looking for them.



two tussles with a short pause in between.
"We fought twice and the first time
was good," O'Malley said.
That time, the two goalies both had
their upper-body padding on, which
O'Malley equated to "throwing punches
in a straight-jacket." Because of the
added weight, the two could do little
harm to one-another.
Then came a slight pause and sudden-
ly, the two were going at it again.
"The second time we went, he was
smarter than me, I guess, so he took his
equipment off and I still had everything
on and he's got nothing on, just his shirt,"
O'Malley said.
Owen easily knocked the weighted-
down O'Malley to the ice and stood over
him, triumphant.
Weekend totals: 66 penalties for 266
minutes. For fighting, 24 penalties for
180 minutes. Ten game disqualifications.
Weekend lesson: Every game might be
different, but when Michigan meets the
Bulldogs, the same emotion surfaces.
