In the wildest hockey game seen
here this season, Michigan took an
easy 7-4 victory over Michigan
tTech last night at the Coliseum.
Jack McDonald, Wolverine net-
minder, played one of the finest
games of his career as he kicked
out 35 Tech shots.
u Three men entered the penalty
box before four and a half min-
utes had gone by; Abbie Maki,
'Tech defenseman, , for hooking,
Connie Hill, Wolverine Defense-
,man, for cross checking, and Al
Renfrew, Maize and Blue wing,
for body checking.
4Maki Draws First Blood
With Renfrew off, Maki re-
turned to the ice and tallied an
-unassisted goal at 4:45, but the
lead was short-lived as Bill Jacob-
,son took a pass from Gordie Mc-
Millan at 6:32 ard slammed a ten-
footer past Engineer goalie, Jack
Michigan took the lead at 18:27
as Connie Hill took the puck be-
hind his own blue line, carried it
over the Tech line, and passed to
Grant, who shot a high one into
the corner from 20 feet out.
The second stanza statistics were
marked only by an unassisted
tally from the stick of Al Renfrew
, 9:34, and a couple of penalties
to Marc Olson, Tech wing, and
Ross Smith, Wolverine defense-
man. Renfrew's score came eight
seconds after Olson left the ice; Al
took the puck from a face-off at
center ice, circled the Engineer de-
fenseman, and netted a 15-footer.

times in 13 minutes while holding
the Techmen to a single tally.
It began when Ted Greer, Maize
and Blue wing, carried the puck
from behind his blue line into en-
emy territory, where he shot it
over to Gacek, who took the rub-
ber in full stride in the center of
the ice and sent it whistling past

Then came the prettiest play of
the evening. With Ross Smith in
the box for board checking, the
Wolverines stole the puck during a
Tech rush, and McMillan and
Renfrew came in on a lone Engi-
neer defenseman, who was outma-
neuvered by Gordie McMillan,
then passed the rubber to Renfrew,
on the other side of the net, and
Al easily beat Noblet.

Grant concluded the Mize and

The Techmen refused to give in
