SOCCER 'TEAMS OPEN HOME STAND
Men kickers rested and ready for CMU

Coach Ron Warhurst tested the
resolve of his runners before last
Saturday's Minnesota Invitational.
"I guess this weekend will give
us a chance to see how good we
really are," he said.
After a strong showing against
quality competition from a 22-team
field laden with ranked teams, the
Wolverines had passed the test.
By virtue of their second place
finish, the Wolverines stamped
themselves as contenders for Big Ten
and national honors later this year.
While No.1 Iowa State proved too
tough in claiming the title, Michi-
gan finished ahead of Texas and
Weber State, both of which were
ranked in the top 20.
"We had a very solid perform-
ance," Warhurst said, "but we still
have a lot of improvement to make
if we want to meet our goals.
Overall, we performed very well in a
big meet and we got a preview of the
Big Ten Championship course,
which is a real positive for us."
Once again, the Wolverines' top
three runners came through with
impressive races as they continue to
establish themselves as a one of the
premier trios in the country. Senior
Brad Barquist's 5th place finish led
Michigan, while junior Tony Carna
and senior Jeff Barnett came in
seventh and eighth respectively.
"I thought the team ran well,"
Barquist said. "We had hopes of
finishing first, but finishing second
was not a major disappointment. We
came pretty close to them (Iowa
State) and I think we can be closer
Said assistant coach Mike
McGuire: "We certainly think we are
on the path that way, but we must
continue to improve and carry that
on to each meet."

A well rested Michigan men's
soccer team should prove to be a
better men's soccer team. After
playing three games in two days last
weekend plus a physically and
emotionally draining contest against
rival Michigan State, Michigan
hopes to show some of its resiliency
when it hosts Central Michigan
"I gave them the day off on
Thursday and Saturday to let them
rest," head coach Don Schwartz said.
Morale among the Wolverines
was low following their nailbiter
against the Spartans, mostly because
the team felt it should have won the
game. But the club had a spirited
practice on Sunday and showed no
signs of being emotionally down.
"I guarantee a victory," said
sophomore Alvin Yeh.
Michigan sports a 6-6 record,
with five of those losses being by
only one goal. If the Wolverines are
to make a return appearance to the
National Club Tournament at the
end of the year, they must start
winning the close games.
A modest win streak, possibly
startipg against CMU today, would
increase the odds of an invitation to
But the task will be made more
difficult because Michigan's defense
has been decimated by injuries.

The experienced play of senior
attackers, Eric Moore, Doug
Spamer, and Todd Neff has been a
ray of light that has led the team
through these dark, injured times.
"At this moment in the season," said
Schwartz, "the attacking line is the
strongest part of the team."

Women's soccer hosts WMU

Michigan women's soccer coach
Phil Joyaux is trying not to get too
overconfident. After all, that attitude
could be dangerous. It often leads to
upsets. So how does the coach feel
about his team's chances of victory
in its game this afternoon?
"Very confident," Joyaux said.
And who could blame him? The
women's soccer team is on a roll.
This past weekend the team looked
very strong against Bowling Green
and Ohio State, winning both games
by twin scores of 5-0. The
Wolverines have outscored their
opponents 54-16 so far this year and
as the season approaches its halfway
mark, the team's record now stands
at an impressive 9-2-2.
So when the women of Kala-
mazoo roll into town later today,
don't expect much to change. In
reference to the Western squad,
Joyaux said, "They're not that strong
Joyaux admitted he hasn't done
much homework on Kalamazoo,
but, given his confidence in his own
team, that doesn't seem to bother
him too much.
As they get ready to face WMU,
'the Wolverines seem to be looki
more towards the next week or tw"
than today. They face Siena Heights
on October 11th and 23rd and
Michigan State on October 17th.
"Those are two of our toughest
competitors. It will be interesting to
see how we fare against them. Those
games will tell alot about our team,"
In the meantime, the team
