Michigan's field hockey team
fell short in its bid to upset top-
ranked Northwestern Sunday,
falling 2-1 in double overtime.
Sannie Van Dijck,
;midfielder, scored twice in
providing all of the offense for the
Wildcats. Junior back Katrina
Warner scored for Michigan.
THE FIRST of Van Dijck's
goals came 11:56 into the first
period, following an impressive
display of ball control by the
Wildcats. The Wolverines struck

as Northwestern retained ball

Northwestern, meanwhile, took
14 shots at the Michigan net,
several coming on seven second-

Wildcats. Michigan goal-keeper

her 21 saves in the second period.

ball into Northwestern territory at

period. Less than a minute had
expired before Michigan took its
first shot. Senior midfielder Jane

Northwestern net, but directly at

THOUGH disappointed with
the loss, Michigan coach Karen
Collins was pleased with her team's
performance. "Our defense played
extremely well. Northwestern can
force a lot of errors, but we didn't
get into that today," Collins said.
"Maryann was excellent,"
Collins added. "The way she's been
playing, she certainly deserves
respect as one of the top goal-
keepers in the country."
Northwestern coach Nancy
Stevens agreed. "Michigan's defense
was brilliant, and their goalie is
outstanding. Michigan is certainly
the most improved team in the Big

Sharples sharp in net. Sharples
shuts out State. Sharp Sharples
shines. The headline possibilities
are endless and so are the
Wolverines' chances if freshman
goalie Warren Sharples turns in
performances like the one in Friday
night's intrasquad scrimmage.
In the Blue's 7-3 win over the
White, the 6-0, 175-pounder from
Calgary, Alberta turned away 28
shots, something Wolverine hockey
fans are unaccustomed to seeing. To
say that the goaltending position
coming into this year was a
question mark would be an
understatement. And the players
"WE'VE been working real
hard on defense in practice because
we know the goals will come," said
sophomore center Todd Brost, who
scored the final Blue goal. "The

difference between this year's game
and last year's."
Last year's final in the Blue-
White game was 14-8, an ominous
sign of the things that were to
come for the woeful Wolverines.
The goaltending corps went on to
yield almost six goals per game.
"We saw some good goaltending

Berenson. "but you never know in

playing each other and not a real
