The Michigan Daily,
Spartans overtake men, 2-1
by Kenneth Artz
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan men's soccer team
beat the Michigan State Spartans
yesterday... but for only the first
half. The Spartans finally put on
their game face and scored twice in
the second half to pull out a 2-1
The Wolverines led at the half,
1-0, and looked as if they were about
to end the Spartans' 20-year winning
streak against Michigan.
Throughout the first half, Michi-
gan beat the Spartans to the ball and
dominated them from end line to end
line. The quicker Wolverines set the
aggressive tone from the start as
midfielder Todd Neff sent the goalie
to the ground in pain 20 seconds
into the game.
Nineteen minutes into the first
half, Neff scored from ten yards out
by poking in a bouncing ball with
the outside of his right foot. Tim
Puckett and forward Paul Pashkoff
assisted on the play.
But at halftime, the teams seemed
to switch uniforms, as the momen-
tum appeared to be on State's side at
the start of the second half.
"We were flat today from the
long road trip over the weekend (to
Illinois)," said coach Don Schwartz,
"and the reason we played so well in
the first half was due to adrenaline."
Michigan did not stop fighting,
though, and with two minutes left in
the game, came inches away from
tying it up. Midfielder Frank Kara-
betsos won a loose ball in the Spar-
tans' penalty box, and ripped a right
foot shot that hit the post and rico-
cheted out of bounds.
The loss evened Michigan's
record at 6-6. The Wolverines try to
break the .500 mark when they play
Central Michigan at Mitchell field
Michigan State's strikers found
more space to roam in the second
half and stuck in the tying goal with
24 minutes left in the game.
"Our team really lost its legs that
second half," Sophomore midfielder
Greg Hake said, "and Michigan
State's size really had a lot to do
The Spartans knocked in the
game-winner at the 19-minute mark
on a shot from the 18 yard line.

Yesterday afternoon, the Michi-
gan women's soccer team tied
Schoolcraft Community College, 2-
2. It was a poorly played game by
both teams and neither deserved to
win, Wolverine players said.
"We were a little sluggish," se-
nior forward Krista Towne said. "It
was the middle of the week, and we
had the blahs."
Towne started the scoring at the
15:30 mark of the first half with an
assist from Alicia Stewart. The Lady
Wolverines sustained the lead until
the 15:12 mark of the second half
when Schoolcraft knotted the score,
- The action was virtually nonexis-
tent, as the play got stuck near mid-
field for most of the game. The
Wolverines manufactured only six
shots on goal, and Schoolcraft man-
aged only five.
Michigan's poor play was sur-
prising because it has been playing
. "I could totally see the difference
between today and the Indiana game
(Sunday)," goalie Sandy Najarian
said. "Things weren't clicking
Schoolcraft took the lead, 2-1, at
the 31:18 mark of the second half.
The Wolverines fought back, and
with eight minutes left, they tied the
score. Heather Marshall led Lisa
Ashton with a pass that left Ashton
all alone with Schoolcraft's goalie.
Ashton faked the goalie and shot the
ball into the back of the net to tie
Two injuries forced Najarian to
fill in at goalie. The regular netmin-
der, Jenny Saul, has a hip contusion
and Najarian has been suffering from
a knee injury of her own. Najarian is
normally a defender, but moved to
goalie because it does not require as
"It feels good to be on the field,"
Najarian said. "I just want to

There are few rituals as embar-
rassing as the NFL rookie sing-a-
* oA rookie reluctantly climbs atop
his table as the chant, "Sing...
Sing... SING!" dissolves into cheers
and hoots before ceasing. He clears
bhisthroat, surveys the room, and
*begins to sing "Varsity, Varsity..."
All of the veterans burst into laugh-
ter, and by the time the rookie raises
his right arm and starts swaying
slowly to and fro, many of the veter-
ans have dropped to the floor in
Ten months from now, Wiscon-
sin defensive tackle Don Davey
would love to be the one entertain-
ing those veterans.
Next summer, Davey will get the
chance to fulfill-a lifelong dream and
make an NFL squad.
Wisconsin defensive coordinator
Dan McCarney says the scouts will
love what they see in Davey.
"He's a fabulous effort player,"
McCarney said. "He's got a good
base, and he uses his hands real
However, should he fail, it will
really be no failure at all.
Not only has he been blessed
with a great athletic frame, the 6-
foot-4, 270-pound Davey also has a
gifted mind. Throw in his never-
legive-in work ethic and you have a
remarkable student-athlete, perhaps
the state of Wisconsin's best ever.
At Manitowoc Lincoln High
School, Davry graduated as the class
valedictorian and led his football
team to a 24-0 record and state
championships during his junior and
senior years. At Wisconsin, Davey
finished his undergraduate studies
with a 3.6 grade-point average while
making the academic All-America
team for three straight years.
By December, Davey will be
only twelve credits short of a Mas-
ter's Degree in Mechanical Engineer-
ing, and he could make the academic
All-America team for a fourth time
- something no other football
player has ever done.
The small-town Wisconsin boy's
feats have already made state resi-
dents beam with pride, but Davey
doesn't want to leave the state once
he's finished in Madison.
"I'd love to get a chance to play
for the Packers," Davey said. "It's
something I've always dreamed
Those who know him have little
doubt that Don Davey will succeed
in the NFL, or whatever he decides
to do. Right now, all he wants to do
is bring back some pride to a bat-
tered Wisconsin football program.
Next summer, he'll want to be up
on a table, embarrassed, and singing
his school song in front of scream-
ing NFL veterans. But this is Don
Davey; he's probably got a great set
of vocal chords, too.
Two Wolverines finally
- un-cover double feature
Congratulations, coach, and that goes double.
Allow me to explain.
In April 1969, the St. Louis Blues were en-
joying a spectacular season, paced by a 29-year-
old forward having his best season ever. Though
his career spanned 17 years, during this particular
season he tallied 35 goals and 47 assists for a ca-
reer-high 82 points.
In April 1969, the Detroit Tigers were ready
to open the season as defending World Champi-
ons after the greatest year in Tiger history.'They
were led by a 27-year-old catcher who would earn
the last of his five straight Golden Glove awards
in the coming year.
In April 1969, both of these men appeared on
the cover of Sports Illustrated in successive
Now, both are Michigan head coaches, having
once been star athletes as undergraduates here.
The hockey player, Gordon Berenson, better
known as Red, was a two-time All-America for-
ward for Michigan from 1960 to 1962. Inducted
into the University of Michigan Hall of Honor in
1983, he has paraded on the Wolverine bench for
the last six seasons.
The baseball player, Bill Freehan, graced the
Michigan gridiron as well, lettering in both
sports as a sophomore. He received an identical
induction to the hall in 1978 and now awaits the
opening of his second season at the helm of the
Michigan baseball team.
And Sports Illustrated gave them top billing
- Red first on April 7, then Bill on April 14,
and neither noticed the Michigan link for over 20
"As I look back, it was unique in the sense
that Freehan and I were acquaintances and we
were both Michigan guys but we were going our
separate ways," Berenson said. "I didn't realize at
the time that Freehan was on the next week, un-
til it was brought to our attention just this year."
Said Freehan: "I didn't realize it until Sports
Illustrated did their 35th anniversary cover issue.
Someone pointed it out in-the following issue,
asking if anyone noticed that we were on succes-
sive covers. That was pointed out as a letter to
the editor, and that was my first recognition."
Aside from the obvious coincidences, the pho-
tos were both unique, with Berenson's shot com-
ing from beneath a glass platform and Freehan's
surrounded by a spiral of patriotic color.
"You could see the bottom of the skates, the
bottom of the puck, and the bottom of my stick,
so it was kind of a different shot," Berenson said.
"And I was one of the few hockey players to have
an opportunity to be on the magazine's cover, so
I was thrilled."
Freehan's picture was also an oddity.
"Actually, the cover was (Denny) McLain and
myself," he said. "There was a_ fold-out inside
that didn't appear. I was on the outside and if you
took that original issue and folded it out, there
was McLain pitching to me in a star-studded
type, red, white and blue, made-up uniform. It
was a thrill to do it."
Both coaches marvel at the mysticism and
take pride in the fact that the Michigan coaching
staff participated in such a rarity.
"Red had no idea at that point in time, nor did
I, that either of us would ever be coaches at the
University of Michigan," Freehan said, "and I
think we look at it as more of a coincidence than
Berenson added: "I think it's kind of nice for
Michigan to look back and see that there's not
just a little bit of nostalgia, but a little bit of no
toriety in some of the people that are here. It
says a lot for the staff."
But it doesn't only say a lot for Michigan's
athletic department. It speaks louder than words
for the two men who were honored in April
Congratulations, coach, and that goes double.
Hey, it's only 21 years late.
