The Michigan field hockey team continued to
roll, crushing an outclassed Toledo team 8-0 at
Ferry Field yesterday. The win follows Satur-
day's 5-1 victory at Toledo and gives the Wolver-
ines an 11-12 record for the season.
After Sara Forrestel scored late in the game
handing Michigan its eighth and final goal,
Toledo head coach Kirpal Singh Mahal said sar-
castically, "Make it double-digits. Why not?"
SINGH MAHAL'S frustration was understan-
dable as Toledo could do little right and
Michigan could do little wrong. And though the
Wolverines didn't reach double figures in
scoring, they did tie their season high of eight
Kay McCarthy started the barrage with an
unassisted goal early in the first half. Lisa
Schofield followed with a goal that was beautifully
set up by Forrestel. Denise Comby made it 3-0 on
an attacking corner.
McCarthy put in a rebound for her second goal
of the game and 17th of the season to up the score
to 4-0. Bridget Sikon gave Michigan a 5-0 half-
time lead with a wicked slap-shot from 15 feet out
that rattled the wooden back of Toledo's goal.
SENIOR FORWARD Forrestel said Toledo
played a "physical game," despite the lopsided
score. Some of that physical play translated into
hacking as the game went on, but Forrestel
"When you can't get to the ball, you hack," she
commented. "They were frustrated and started
to hack a little."
Whatever Toledo was doing, it certainly
couldn't stop Michigan from scoring, as the
Wolverines continued to pour it on in the second
half, scoring three more times. Scofield scored
her second goal of the contest on a pass from
Kim Liu. Alison Johnson's goal made it 7-0.
COACH CANDY Zientek was more concerned
with fine-tuning her team's play for later games
this week than with the scoring. After playing
Central Michigan tomorrow, Michigan hosts
third-ranked Old Dominion on Thursday. The
21st-ranked Wolverine's NCAA playoff hopes
probably rely on the outcome of that game, ac-
cording to Zientek.
"Only 12 teams make the NCAA (playoffs),"
stated Zientek, "so we'll probably have to win
our last three games to make it. And beating Old
Dominion is especially important."
It was a chilly and wet autumn
bastard of an evening last Wednesday
when the Michigan undergraduate soc-
cer club prepared to tangl with
Eastern Michigan. But the night didn't
seem quite so dreary for the Wolverines
when Tong Park's goal. with fiftee
minutes left broke a 1-1 tie and
propelled the Wolverines to a 2-1 vic-
Dan Giter opened the scoring for
Michigan early in the first half, but the
Hurons came back to tie at halftime
before falling on Park's goal.
The weather conditions Sunday in
Evanston were not nearly as bad, but
the results were not nearly as good for
Michigan, and undergrads fell to Nor-
thwestern, 1-0. Pete Puccia overcame6
his first-half difficulties to produce one
of his finest games of the year in goal,
but his effort was not enough.
This week the Wolverines travel to
Spring Arbor and then take on Wayne
St. at home on Saturday in an attempt
to improve their 7-4 record.
The graduate soccer club had similar
difficulties firing up in its game last
week at Wayne St. "We played a very
sluggish game for the first 65-70
minutes," commented Mike Backfield.6
"We didn't start playing coherently un-
til late in the game."
This lackluster play allowed the Tar-
tars to catapult out to a 4-0 lead before
Uwe Pleban knocked home a penalty
kick to avert the shutout. The
Wolverines had many late second-half
scoring chances. In fact, two balls hit
off the crossbar in the late stages of the
The Wolverines fell to 1-3-1 on th
season. They will try to get back in the
groove against Detroit College of
business this week.
The Sue Vodicka show went on the
road to Columbus last weekend when
the women's soccer club competed in a
tournament down at Ohio St. Although
the Wolverines finished fourth in an
eight-team field, defeating Miami of
Ohio 2-1 and Wooster 6-0, they were
voted the best all-around team due to
their tenacity and overall strong per.
formance in each game.
Vodicka did not disappoint either,
scoring four goals and assisting on
another to join teammate Debbie Neff
on the All-Tournament team.
Going into the last race of the mid-
western Sloop Championships on Lake
Mendota in Madison, last Sunday,
Michigan's sailing club was in seconc
place, trailing leader Wisconsin by two
With Doug Wefer skippering and
Scott Ferguson and Ellen Wefer for-
ming the crew, Michigan won the last
race and captured the champinship.
Wefer obviously was elated after the
victory, but understood the value of a
"It really helped me a lot to have
Scott Ferguson with me. He really
knows what he's doing."
The win qualified the three for the
National Sloop Championships in-
Charlestown November 19-21. This
week, Ferguson will compete in the
National Singlehanded Championships
in Minnesota, while some of the sailors
will head to Boston to attempt to cap-
ture the Schell Trophy, and another
group ges set to invade Ohio St. for the
Halloween regatta down in Columbus.
