Blue shutout streaki

If the men's soccer team has
strived for consistency this season, it
has achieved it. In a rather dubious
Last night the Wolverines lost
another match by a goal. Out of
Michigan's seven losses, six of
them have been by that slim margin.
This time it was Central Michi-
gan to lay the hurt on the Blue, as
the Chippewas broke a 2-2 halftime
tie to pull out a 4-3 victory on a
rain-soaked Mitchell field..
'Michigan (6-7) dominated the
Central Michigan for the first twenty
minutes of the first half. But it was

ing advantage of an advanced defen-
Since the ball was in Central's
end the entire first half, Michigan's
defense was vulnerable to a counter-
attack. Central Michigan sent the
ball up the wings to their quick for-
wards, and scored two quick goals
midway through the first half.
"We underestimated their counter-
at1cking ability," striker Sam Stew-
-The Wolverines then took advan-
tage of some offensive opportunities
to tie the game before halftime. The
speedy Eric Moore burned his de-
fender, and chipped a pass to the head
of forward Kelly Kuehne, who neatly
placed it underneath the crossbar.
With the score 2-1, senior Todd
Neff took a pass from midfielder
Matt Dikin and volleyed it into the
upper right corner of the net to knot
The second half mirrored the first,
as the Wolverines dominated and the
Chippewas scored. Two defensive
lapses led to the opposition's goals.
Throughout the game the defend-
ers let the opposing forwards roam
the 18 yard line unmarked. This led
to a bevy of open passing lanes, and
the Chippewas took advantage of
two of them.
"Our defense needs more disci-
pline," coach Don Schwartz said.
The Wolverines kept the ball in
Central's half the rest of the game,
but could only muster a goal by Ja-
son Cardasis. He intercepted a
Chippewa pass back to the goal-
tender, and lodged it into the right
side of the net.

Yesterday afternoon the Michigan
women's soccer team dominated its
opponent. Again. This time the vic-
tim was the team from Western

the contest with a hat trick. Shannon
Loper contributed with two goals,
and Heather Marshall, Sandy Najar-

"It seemed like they were a young
team, without a lot of experience,"
coach Phil Joyaux said of WMU.
Rain was falling throughout the
entire game, but it did not have a
large impact on the outcome of the

Teams often request better facilities to im-
prove their program. The women's soccer team
simply wanted a coach.
They got their wish, as Phil Joyaux assumed
the helm this season, and has guided his team to
a 10-2-2 record thus far.
Although this is his first year in charge of the
Michigan team, Joyaux has been coaching soccer
since 1978. He headed the varsity team at Gran-
dledge (MI) High School for four years, and was
the junior varsity coach for a year at East Lans-
ing High School. He was the assistant varsity
coach at Adrian (MI) College for one year, and
has also coached various club teams.
For the past five summers, Joyaux worked at
soccer camps, and served on the Michigan
Olympic Development Staff. In 1982, he took a
team of all-stars to Europe.
But this season is Joyaux's first as the coach
of a women's team.
"Almost all of my life I've coached guys," he
said, adding that there is usually a difference be-
tween men and women soccer players.
"The difference is because of coaching," he
said. "Coaches generally have low expectations
for girls. I told them the first day that there's no
excuse for them not to be technically as good as
a guy. There's no reason to not have the same
skills. It helps you reach your goal."
One definitive team goal is to defeat their in-
"The girls get up for Michigan State, Siena
Heights, and Schoolcraft, because those are the
teams they've lost to in the past," he said. "This
year we beat Schoolcraft and tied them. We beat
them badly in the first game, and the second
time, no one was up for it."
Joyaux feels that the desire to defeat rivals is
understandable, but as a team goal, it ends up
hurting the team.
"When your only goal is to beat your rival§;
the games in between don't mean that much," h'
said. "No one gets up for the other teams. No*
one really gets excited."
Despite the team's success, Joyaux remains
"We should be 13-0," he said. "We've domi
nated every game. In the games that we've lost ci
tied we haven't scored when we should've. Be-
cause of that there's a certain sense of frustra
