Blue field hockey
team wins twice, 1-0
by David Schechter
The Wolverine Field Hockey team traveled west this weekend, adding
two wins to their record by defeating the University of the Pacific and
the University of California at Berkeley by identical scores of 1-0.
"We dominated play in both games although the score does not
indicate that," coach Patti Smith said. "We created a lot more
opportunities. We maintained our composure and played our style of
Providing the firepower for the Wolverines (3-2) were sophomores
Sandie Marotti and junior Josee Charvet. In the first game against
Pacific, Marotti drilled her game-winning shot past the Golden Bear
defense, and Charvet capitalized on a penalty stroke against the Tigers.
The West Coast trip demonstrated the strength of the Wolverines
possession and passing abilities. "Sometimes we lose sight of the type
of game we play and another team can take us out of our style of game.
But these games have enhanced our play," Smith said.
Smith hopes her six returning seniors will add to the experience of
the squad. She notes that seniors Judy Burinskas, Sharon Cantor, Patti
Farley, Joanne Green, Margaret Kundtz, and Ilene Meadows, "bring
pride and determination to the team. Their unity and closeness is
definitely helping us out on the field."
The team hopes to improve upon last seasons 6-10-4 overall record.
"Our record is indicative of where the team has gone," Smith said.
"We're kind of building. The team is playing together."
Defensively, Patricia Maran, Hilary Hughes, Sandie Marotti, and
Patti Farley compose the strength of the Michigan attack. "They're
tenacious. Defense is the beginning of our attack," noted Smith.
The Wolverines finish out their western tour with a final match
against Chico State late last night, a traditionally physical team.
However, Smith shows optimism going into the Chico State game.
"Hopefully we can put it together for one more win, and come home
with three victories."
