9Vomen's soccer loses in OT
by Eric Sklar
Daily Sports Writer
Yesterday afternoon the women's
soccer team faced the tough task of
trying to beat a varsity squad from
Michigan State. They fell to the
Spartans, 2-1, in an exhausting dou-
ble overtime loss.
S Despite the defeat, the team
played very well according to Michi-
gan coach Phil Joyaux.
"In the first half, we dominated
them," Joyaux said. "But in the sec-
ond half they played us 50-50, and in
'66 overtimes they took it to us."
" Wolverine Heather Marshall add-
ed, "The team really gave one-
hundred percent. We hustled as much
, we could. We really outplayed
trim, and we should've won."
The Spartans scored first 15 min-
utes into the second half. Michigan
center forward Crista Towne tied the
game four minutes later off an assist
from Amy Stock.
"It was the most physical game
of the year. Our intensity level was
up really high," Towne said. "It was
a kind of grudge match between two
The contest went into overtime,
where neither squad was able to gain
an advantage. By the time the second
extra period began, both teams were
fatigued, but in the end, Michigan
State scored the winning goal.
According to Joyaux, the most
important factor leading to the
Wolverines' defeat was the team's
"We were just out of shape,"
Joyaux said. "...If we had been in
shape, I think that we would've
Towne concurred. "It hurt us a
lot," she said. "I still think that we
took it to them."
Another problem the Wolverines
had was putting the ball in the goal.
They outshot the Spartans by a large
margin, but were unable to gain the
"We should've converted more of
our shots," Towne said. "It would've
been nice to win, but they
(Michigan State) were frustrated. It
was a club frustrating a varsity
team... We proved that we're a very

"Will you look at this?" Michi-
gan coach Don Schwartz grumbled.
Water jugs, jerseys and bits of ath-
ic tape, remnants of his players
had neglected to bring them
back to Schwartz's car, littered the
But he could barely manage a
grimace. The Michigan men's soccer
team (8-7) made it two in a row and
brought its record above the .500
mark with a 1-0 victory over

The only goal came off the head
Of Matt Dikin. He scored his second
of the year, at 31:00 into the second
half, off a cross from Frank Karabet-
sos, which he tucked into the upper
"Frank put it right on my head,
and I flicked it to the far post,"
Schwartz had glowing praise for
the play of Dikin, his senior mid-
"Matt Dikin played an excellent
game," Schwartz said. "He really
played tough defensively and played
,tough off the ball as well."
The first half was played evenly,
with both teams making forays deep
into each opponents' end. The
Wolverines limited the Broncos'
chances due to the stellar play of
goalkeeper Marc Kuiper and sweeper
"You've got to recognize
Kuiper's contribution. He made a
couple of excellent saves," Schwartz
In the second half, Western
Michigan began to control play,
keeping the ball in Wolverine terri-
tory for minutes at a time. They
racked up nine corner kicks to the
Wolverines' three, and peppered
goalie Kuiper with five shots, but
were unable to capitalize.
Michigan, however, was able to
convert one of its few scoring oppor-
tunities in the second half.

With the marching band playing
in the background, the first champi-
onship game of intramural fraternity
soccer was held last night. Sigma
Phi Epsilon defeated Theta Chi, 3-2,
in an overtime shootout to capture
Halfway into the second half, it
appeared Sig Eps would glide to a
shutout. Leading 1-0, they were con-
trolling the play at both ends of the
field and their dominance could be
felt on the sidelines.
Sigma Phi Epsilon's supporters
were jumping up and down, ready to
explode at the final whistle, while
uneasiness prevailed on the other
side of the field.
Nineteen minutes into the half,
however, the tide turned when Theta
Chi equalled the score and turned up
the physical play. Throughout the
end of the half, and through both
overtimes, Theta Chi had the mo-
mentum and it was then their side-
line which showed the enthusiasm.
Indeed, Theta Chi scored the first
shootout goal and stopped Sigma
Phi Epsilon's first attempt. The
party ended for Theta Chi - they
were held scoreless on their final two
attempts and Sig Eps blasted two in
for the win.
Matt Walker, who had an assist
on Sigma Phi Epsilon's first goal
and scored the game winner, said he
knew how to keep the team going
when Theta Chi made its run.
"I just tried to pump up the team
and get them going faster," he said.
"We had to keep making noise, shift
the momentum and score some

EAST LANSING- Another match, another loss.
The favorite huddle-breaking cheer of the Michigan
volleyball team is 'Win.' Optimistic as they might
be, the Wolverines' hopes have yet to be realized.
Michigan lost its eighth straight Big Ten match
last night at Michigan State. The Spartans prevailed,
15-5, 9-15, 15-2, 13-15, 15-8.
The Wolverines do not have a lack of enthusiasm,
despite their 1-16 overall record, but their talent can
not match up to their opponents. Michigan coach
Peggy Bradley-Doppes has adapted well in using the
talent that was already at Michigan when she arrived
"Talent-wise they are fine," Spartan coach Ginger
Mayson said. "Overall, they have some nice kids.
They're a different team than the last few years. If
they keep play-ing this way, they will win some
games. But if not, they will still be a lot stronger
The Spartans attacked repeatedly, overpowering the
Wolverines' defense. At times, Michigan's defense
held its own, but too often it was helpless against
State's primary rocket-launcher Becky Ballinger.
As usual, the Wolverines lacked direction. In each
of the five games the Spartans scored at least two
unanswered points. Michigan continually had to fight
out of a hole to win a game.
"The consistency is a problem," Bradley-Doppes
said, "but we have three people out for the season.
Thus, the inconsistency will be there. We are only
one or two starters away from being good, but we
have one or two starters out so that makes it even
The match seemed over late in game four, but the
Wolverines came out of nowhere to get back in the
match. Michigan was down 6-11 but went on a 9-2
rampage to grab the victory out of the Spartan's
hands - temporarily.
"Once we got disciplined, we gave them a hard-
fought battle," Bradley-Doppes said. "We really hung
in there. I was very pleased."
