Volleyballers and stickers
each drop a pair this weekend,

by Ryan Schreiber
Daily Sports Writer
Closing out the first half of the Big Ten season, the Michigan women's
volleyball team lost this weekend to both Illinois and Purdue.
On Friday night, the Wolverines were overwhelmed by a powerful
Fighting Illini squad, 11-15, 5-15, 3-15. In the first game, Michigan opened
a 10-6 lead, paced by the tough service game of junior Julia Sturm. How-
ever, late mishits, service errors, and net and line violations blew the lead
and the game.
The mental mistakes continued as Illinois (14-3 overall, 6-2 in the Big
Ten) charged to a quick 8-0 bulge in the second game. Michigan (5-12, 0-9)
could not counter Illini senior Petra Laverman, whose 16 kills were tops for
the match.
Again Laverman spiked the Wolverines' hopes, as she and junior Laura
Bush dominated the third game, closing out the match as Illinois reeled off
the final 11 points.
"We worked hard on serving and defense," Michigan coach Joyce Davis
said, "and I am proud of the way we played. We were just overmatched."
"This is the best Michigan team that I've seen since I've been here,"
Illinois coach Mike Hebert said. "They served better and have a very quick
attack. The team in general is performing better.
"I think if we play this way tomorrow night," Davis added, "we'll beat
Purdue."
Against Purdue, however, a lack of intensity level and concentration set
Michigan back early in the match, as they went on to lose, 3-15, 15-12, 13-
15, 10-15.
"I thought that Michigan played much better after the first game," Purdue
coach Nancy Huliba said. "We served well, but we also had a lot of serving
errors at critical times. We won some close games (against Michigan State
on Friday) that we hadn't been able to do earlier in the season. We came
from behind more, too."
The Boilermakers (7-13, 2-7) had no need to come from behind in the
first game, with Michigan making numerous service return errors. For the
match, Purdue tallied a remarkable 13 service aces. Senior Debbie McDonald
contributed a game-high 16 kills for Purdue.
With a balanced attack from Sturm and Clover, Michigan won the second
game, 15-12. The Wolverines took advantage of late scoring opportunities
while the Boilermakers committed three straight service errors at the close of
the game.
The turning point of the match came after a Purdue timeout in the third
game. With Michigan leading 12-10, the Boilermakers charged ahead to vict-
ory, 15-13, despite Michigan's .451 attack percentage.
Purdue went on to close out the match, 15-10, thwarting an early Wol-
verine attack and leaving Michigan winless in the Big Ten schedule.

Grlddes ain't no
clowning around
Red Skelton isn't just clowning around! He's thrilled that all of his pals
decided to play Griddes with him this week.
Skelton, a tired hackneyed vaudvillian, lost last week in a close race to
Freddy the Freeloader.
"I just can't believe that they would play with me," said an elated
Skelton. "I know we'll win this week because I can use my fool proof
method-when Bobo's nose turns bright red, we know we've got a
winning pick."
Sources say, however, that Bobo has a cold this week and his nose
knows nada. So, you have a chance to win lunch or dinner for two at
O'Sullivan's Eatery and Pub on South University (limit $12). Just drop
off your picks at The Daily in the Student Publications Building on 420
Maynard.

It was a long last weekend for the
Wolverine field hockey team as it
was beaten in both of its final two
home games by Iowa on Friday and
Northern Illinois on Sunday.
"It just wasn't meant to be,"
Sharon Cantor said dejectedly after
the overtime 3-2 loss to Northern
Illinois. "We were in there, but it
just came to the last minute and
they had more scoring oppor-
tunities."
Despite their usual penalty corner
deficit (Michigan had four to
Northern's fourteen), the Wolverines
lead with just over a minute left in
regulation when Huskie Laura Wehr-
man evened the score. Huskie for-
ward Jady Psek iced the game in the
second overtime, intercepting a pass
and tucking a crisp shot past goalie
Joanne Green.
But Green made the goal a tough
target all weekend, turning away
eleven Hawkeye strokes and seven-
teen against the Huskies. Sweeper
Patricia Maran was a solid back-up,
batting down an airborne shot on
goal versus Iowa and foiling a
Northern player's break away.
Still, coach Patti Smith would
like to have seen less of the ball on
her end. "It was a hard-fought game,
but you don't want your goalie to
go one-on-one a lot. When you do

eld hockey
that, you ask for trouble," she said.
Both visiting coaches had prob-
lems with their defense as well.
"I think we came out very
tentative and we just did not play
well at all," said Iowa coach Beth
Biglin, whose team won by a score
of 3-0. "Our first half was horren-
dous."
Northern coach Laurie Bell's
problems came both on and off the
field. Storming the sideline through-
out the first half, she carried a stick
and seemed ready to clobber the next
player to allow a penalty corner to 4
sputter out of the circle.
But most of the miscues were
due to those who were off the field.
"We're very injured," she said in
response to her team's numerous
botched corners. "I don't think we're
so physically tired, but we have
some very key people out of our
line-up. We had four people that
were playing in different positions
than they had before."
Among those missing was
Netherlands import Alice Wassman,
who scored both goals to beat the
Wolverines this season in Evanston.
Interestingly, Bell chose to use
only one stick stopper on penalty
corners. Most teams go with two in
order to keep the defense guessing as
to where the ball will go and also to

Women's soccer beats Indiana, win streak at six

Dan Zoch
Daily Sports Writer

The University of Michigan women's soccer
team won their most challenging game of the
season Saturday against Indiana, 2-1. In a hard-
fought match, the Wolverines, led by first-year
forward Molly Douma and senior Amy Stock,
came back from a first half deficit to prevail in
the second half.
The win brings the Wolverine's winning
streak to six.
In the first half, the Hoosiers "were playing
tough, but we were hanging in there with
them," said team captain Stock. "You could tell
that we really wanted it."
However, Michigan's attitude was not
enough to stop Indiana from taking the early
lead. Though Michigan had their chances to
score early on, the Hoosiers kept their

momentum going through halftime.
The atmosphere on the Michigan side of the
field was hushed during halftime. "Something
happened at halftime," Stock said. "We knew
we could win it, we were hustling more, and we
wanted to win."
Forward Molly Douma assisted Stock for the
first Wolverine score of the game with ten
minutes gone in the second half. Michigan
started to gain momentum and took advantage
of it ten minutes later when Douma got a goal
of her own off an assist by junior Crista Towne
to give the Wolverines a 2-1 lead.
Defense prevailed in the final twenty
minutes as Michigan held Indiana scoreless.
"There was solid defensive play from
(sophomores) Maureen Scullen and Heather
Marshall," Stock said. "They did a great job of
keeping them to only one goal."

Michigan retained control offensively with
assistance from sophomore Lori Green who,
along with Douma, Towne, and Stock, kept the
Wolverine lead for the remainder of the game.
"We had a lot more chances to score in the
second half than Indiana," Stock said. "Both
teams played really well. They were the best
competition we've had as far as a passing game
goes. It was really a great win."
This game was somewhat of a grudge match
for the Wolverines. In last year's match-up,
Indiana slipped past Michigan during overtime
in an equally competitive game. Saturday's
game was a chance for the squad to put that
earlier game behind them.
The Wolverines hopes to continue their win-
streak as they travel to Siena Heights College
for their last regularly scheduled game of the
season.
