The Michigan men's soccer

streak as they prepare to do battle
against Western Ontario this
afternoon. Last week the team

against Macomb College and beat
a strong Windsor team 4-3 in

line but the team is ready.

prepared for that type of play,"
midfielder and four-year starter
Matt Dikin said.
Last year Michigan posted an
easy 4-0 defeat of Western Ontario
on the road but they are not taking
this game for granted. "We can't
afford to come out flat, like
against Macomb College, where
we had to come from behind,"
Coach Don Swartz agrees with
Dikin. "Western Ontario, like
most Canadian teams, is very
solid getting to balls which are in

The Michigan women's soccer
team, sporting a 4-2 record, travels
to Canada today to take on the
University of Windsor squad.
After an optimistic 4-0 start,
the team has dropped its last two
decisions. The first loss came at
the hands of Minnesota Friday
afternoon. The second loss, a 3-2
decision against Penn State,
occured this past Sunday.
Despite the two losses, the
team is extremely upbeat and feels
their first four games are more
reflective of the team's ability.
"Because it is earlier in the
season, losses are easier to take,"
senior sweeper Leslie Martin said.
"We should have won both games.
We really look forward to playing
While Michigan coach Phil
Joyaux does not know any
specifics about Windsor, he
anticipates a physical matchup.
"They play hard," said Joyaux.
"They don't play dirty but they are
very aggressive. We're going to

statement: "The Windsor team

Moeller found missed tackles to be
one of the major contributors to
Saturday night's loss.
Although happy with the overall
performance of his defense, Moeller
is looking for more consistency.
"On their last drive, I felt we
would hold them to a field goal or
something. We can improve the play
of our linebackers and we can tackle
better," he ssaid. "That was what
failed us in that game. We might
