'Defense untracked b rash o injuries
Six regulars to miss
Florida State game
By MARK BOROWSKY
Defense, or a lack of it, has
weighed heavily in Michigan
head coach Bo Schembechler's
mind lately, especially after the
visit of the pass-happy Oregon
But believe it or not, there were
some positive aspects about
Michigan in Saturday's 31-12
victory over Oregon State. At
least Schembechler saw some.
"THERE WERE some good
things that happened in there,"
Schembechler said at yesterday's
press luncheon. "One is winning
the game. We had some good

and beating Toledo.
"Florida State, unfortunately,
will be the best of the three we've

said. "They're a great defensive

Sickers drop two in eantown

Michigan's field hockey team,
off to a good start in '86, returned
from its eastern road trip

KATRINA Warner starred in
Michigan's victory over Rhode

first period at 1:19 and assisted on
fellow senior Lisa Murray's goal
at 11:19 of the second period.
The team then took on the
ninth-ranked Boston College
Murray scored the lone goal at
22:00 of the first period. But, two

proved to be too much for the
Collins felt the game was not
decided by the players, but that the
refs contributed heavily to her
team's downfall. "We contested
both goals - Murphy's second
goal was another questionable
"I DIDN'T think the officials
called a good game - they could
have called a better game. It (bad
calls) was blatant."
The coach continued her
assault on the poor officiating.
"We need two goals to compete on
the road. BC was ranked 15th in
"It was not a good game," said
Collins, "because we were as
strong as they, and could play
with them or anybody. It was a
very encouraging game."
THE SENIORS showed their
experience over the weekend.
Lisa Murray scored her fifth and
sixth goals, but the young kids
added much needed depth to the
Michigan opens up the Big Ten
season at Ohio State on Saturday,
with a game against the fourth
ranked Iowa Hawkeyes. The
next day, the team opposes OSU.
"We really believe if we can
play with Iowa," Collins said,
."We can beat them. But if the
game gets out of hand, we could
have a tough time.
"Iowa's beaten us the last
couple of years, but we're stronger
and need to show them that."
Coach Collins believes in this
year's much improved field
hockey team. The squad now goes
into the grueling Big Ten
schedule with confidence.
"We can play with the ranked
teams - we don't think we're a
fluke," Collins said. "I think

Just as he did all of last year,

Coach Warhurst said, "We
