Michigan inside linebacker John Milligan stares at the opposing offense intently. The senior co-captain and
several of his teammates are injured heading into this weekend's Big Ten opener at Wisconsin.
Bo to go
He was at last week's football

grant any interviews. Not to fear

Even a 45-17 victory over Mary-
land Saturday could not keep away
the visible disappointment that hung
over Michigan coach Gary Moeller's
head at his weekly football luncheon
yesterday. He could only characterize
the injury to starting center Steve
Everitt as "a major, major loss."
Everitt suffered three broken
bones in his left foot against Mary-
land, and, according to Moeller, will
be out of action for a minimum of
six weeks. Everitt had his toes to the
turf at an awkward angle when a
Terrapins player fell across them.
"Quite honestly, without saying
this in a negative manner, because
I'm not being overly critical of
Maryland, the middle guard grabbed
(Everitt) and turned him and
wouldn't let him go," a frustrated
"He couldn't really get out of a
bad situation. It's one of those
things that happens, but you hate to
see good players get hurt."
On a lighter note, Moeller feels
that Michigan's replacements, pre-
dominantly at the linebacker posi-
tion, have performed at or above
expected levels of play. Even the
return of a healthy Alex Marshall
has been delayed by the promising
play of Neil Simpson.
"Marshall's healthy now, but I
think he's got to win his job back,"
Moeller said. "He was probably at
about 90 percent last week but Neil
was doing a good job."
Moeller also praised his fill-in
rookies at inside linebacker. David
Dobreff, who earned the starting nod,
and Steve Morrison, who received
some playing time as a back-up,
both showed promise as replace-
ments for injured senior co-captain
In another injury, frosh defensive
lineman Steve Rekowski, who fell
to the turf following a blatant
clipping penalty, proved to be less
damaging than originally thought.
While it first appeared that
Rekowski might be forced to miss
this week's Big Ten opener at Wis-
consin with his reinjured Achilles
tendon, Moeller indicated that he
should be ready to practice as early
No. 1?: A humorous Moeller
reacted to chatter of a possible No. 1
national ranking for the Wolverines
entering the Rose Bowl: "I'll give
you a few addresses, and you call
(Michigan State coach George)
Perles, (Ohio State coach John)
Cooper, and (Illinois coach John)
Mackovic and those guys and put it
by them. We have a long way to go.
"Indiana and Iowa are going to
make things very, very interesting.
They're going to get some of those
guys and some of those guys better
not be us."
forge path to finals

Looking to improve upon its three game winning streak, the Michigan
men's soccer club travelled to Illinois this past weekend for a six-team
tournament, which included three big contests against Iowa, Illinois, and
Purdue. Winning all three would have provided a birth in the tourney
It didn't happen.
On Saturday, game one pitted the Wolverines against Illinois. Both
teams were quite sluggish with only four shots on goal taken by both
sides. A lucky break midway through the second half enabled the Illini to
score the lone tally of the contest.
"The team just didn't recover," said club member Rob Albritton. "We
had several opportunities with no luck."
In game two, Michigan faced Iowa. The match was the Wolverines
strongest showing, as they came out and dominated from start to finish.
Forward Eric Moore scored a hat trick as Michigan defeated Iowa 3-0.
"We destroyed them in every facet," coach Don Schwartz said.
The statistics seem to prove this as Michigan outshot the Hawkeyes
16 to 4.
Michigan faced their toughest match Sunday against Purdue as little
seemed to go its way. Purdue broke a 1-1 tie with about six minutes to
play and came away with a 2-1 victory.
"We had two defensive lapses and they capitalized on both," Albritton
Paul Pashkoff scored the goal for Michigan. Purdue led 6 to 4 in shots
"It's tough because we had numerous opportunities to score and just
could not capitalize," Schwartz said. "It's frustrating to lose two games
when we could have won all three."
Even with the two losses and a now mediocre 6-5 record, a voice ofli
optimism was certainly prevalent.
"We improved with each game, which is the important thing,"
Albritton said. "It was a pretty intense tournament with a high level of
play. We were definitely competitive."
Lady golfers take 6th

The Michigan women's golf team tied for sixth place in last weekend's
tournament at Michigan State. Penn State won the tournament with a
score of 947 over three rounds of play, while Notre Dame tied Michigan
with a 971 score. Wisconsin, Northern Illinois, Michigan State, and Ohio
State finished 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th, respectively.
The Lady Wolverines shot a 318 and were only 3 strokes off the lead
after the first 18 holes. The performance was quite a turnaround from most
of the team's previous tournaments, where it usually found itself looking
up at the rest of the pack. During that first round, senior Becky Hayes
fired an impressive 76 to lead all Michigan golfers, while Erica Zonder
shot an 80.
"After the first round we had a chance of doing well," Hayes said. But
that's when things weren't perfect for the Wolverines.
"We finally got over our first round jinx, but that was our best round,"
said Coach Sue LeClair, as Michigan carded a 327 in Saturday's second
round. "That (the 327) kind of kicked us out of it." Penn State scored a
308 to lead all teams in the 2nd round.
Hayes carded an 84 in Sunday's round and the Wolverines finished the
day with a 326. Cutting only a stroke on Sunday was not good enough to
get back into contention.
Next weekend, the Wolverines travel to a tournament at Ohio State.
Despite last weekend's demise, the squad seems to have no shortage of
"We put a lot of pressure on ourselves," said Hayes, "We'll play well
next weekend at Columbus."

In the midst of a grueling nine-
game road odyssey, the Michigan
field hockey team dropped a 3-1
decision to Northwestern. Yet the
following day, the Wolverines
fortunes brightened as they bounced
back to blank the Northern Illinois
In Sunday's victory, the
Wolverines were led by first-year
goalkeeper Tasha Bach's shutout.
The Wolverines lone goal came from
sophomore forward Katie Thomas.
Frosh forward Jennifer DiMascio
thought the team showed tremendous
improvement against the Huskies.
"We played very well as a team.
We passed the ball well, and we were
consistently cutting to the ball,"
"We are playing well as a team,"
added first-year goalkeeper Nikki
Hoover. "We are coming together
now, and we really seem to be
playing in sync."
Both DiMascio and Hoover give
credit for the improvement to the
senior leadership on the team. "The
seniors have been helping out the
freshmen a lot," the two frosh said.
"They have been teaching us and
also keeping the team spirit up."
