Michigan kickers
upset Kalamazoo
by Andrew Brown
Daily Sports Writer
As the day began, the Michigan men's soccer club had a lot of high
hopes, but at the same time realized the strength of their competition.
They were up against Kalamazoo College on Saturday, ranked 4th in the
midwest for Division III.
When it was all said and done, club member Tim Puckett described the
game as "the biggest win of my career."
With no score after regulation play, Michigan gained control of the
ball in overtime and sent a cross into the box. Forward Guy Metzeger
challenged the goalkeeper and jarred the ball loose. Todd Neff was there for
the rebound and scored the only goal of the contest to give the Wolverines
a 1-0 win.
Kalamazoo entered the contest with a 14-1 record. But with patient ball
control and a tremendous defense led by Puckett, the Wolverines were able
to hold off their high-flying attack. Puckett held in check top scorer Derek
Bylsma who has 25 goals on the season. This was the Wolverines 3rd
shutout in a row.
"This was our best defensive performance all season," club member
Rob Albritton said. "Tim played great and we really held them down."
Puckett expressed similar feelings.
"Mark Kuiper, the goalkeeper played terrific and freshman sweeper
Brian Rosewarne did a fine job," Puckett said. "It was a huge defensive
effort and we just cashed in at the right time."
The Wolverines controlled the midfield for the majority of the contest
* and played very patiently. Kalamazoo had more shots but it was certainly
a very even contest that could have gone either way.
"Things are really starting to fall for us," Albritton said. "We're now
9-7 and it's a shame the season is almost over. This is the best we have
played all year."
Rugby squad avoids
running, beats Purdue
by Charlie Wolfe
Daily Sports Contributor
The Michigan women's rugby team had plenty of incentive in their
match Saturday versus Purdue, because coach Bryn Chivers applied some
good old-fashioned scare tactics to spur the team on to victory.
Just before the ball was about to be kicked off, Chivers called out to
his team, "Hey Blue, for every point they (Purdue) score, it's a trip up the
hill."
With that, he pointed to some very generous hills beyond Mitchell.
Field, and the Wolverines promptly proceeded to shut-out the
4 Boilermakers, 12-0.
Michigan began the scoring when Julie Liebler carried the ball in for
the first try (worth four points) 10 minutes into the action. Plenty of hard
tackling by both sides dominated first half play, but Mena Colucci was
able to score the team's second try after a perfect series of laterals by
Blue's back line, making the score 8-0 at the half.
Liebler concluded the scoring in the second half with a short run for
her second try of the game, and tough defense preserved the 12-0
Wolverine victory.
Chivers noted on the team's performance, "Our offense isn't as crisp as
it could be, but we really tackled hard and we're starting to get respect for
that."
Michigan kept its string intact of not having been scored upon by a
college (undergraduate) team, although Purdue was at a bit of a
disadvantage.
"They had some injuries and things last week, just like the last time
we played them," team president Erika Wolf said. "It's really tough (for
other teams) -because not many teams are as organized or have as big a
squad as us."

Omega emerged victorious, 2-0, in the latest edition of this annual struggle.
Battle of the writers goes to State, 6-4

a

by Adam Miller
Daily Sports Writer

Because phone calls totalled in
the hundreds requesting the week-
old account of the Daily/State News
football game October 13, the Daily
has decided to print this story.
Whatever happened to touch
football?
Editor-in-chief Noah Finkel
would sure like to know. He suffered
a concussion, requiring six hours of
hospitalization, in October 13th's
rough and tumble game between the
State News and the Michigan Daily.
State extended its win streak to four,
beating the Daily on its home turf 6-
4. (A touchdown earned one point
and the team that scored six first
won automatically.)
BIG WINS
Continued from page 9
Sophomore offensive hitter Chris
White, and senior middle blocker
Julia Sturm authored of most of
these stats. White's hitting
percentage soared to .417, she
knocked down 12 kills, and only
forced two errors. Sturm hit .364,
with ten kills, two errors, and led the
team in blocks and aces.
Michigan then took a
doubleheader sweep Saturday evening
when they thrashed Northern
Michigan, 15-1, 15-9, 15-8.
"It was on overall team effort,"
Bradley-Doppes said. "The keys were
great defense and team effort, we
average five digs per person, which
shows the effort was there."
To round out the cathartic
weekend, the Wolverines spiked the
hometown Michigan Tech Huskies,

This year's game started much as
last year's 5-1 State romp in East
Lansing did, as the News jumped out
to a quick 2-0 lead. After a TD bomb
on 4th and long, State intercepted
quarterback Eric Lemont and pro-
ceeded to drive down the field for an-
other touchdown.
The Daily was determined not to
be embarrassed again, however, and
their character showed in the ensuing
comeback. Lemont, who threw for
three touchdowns on the day, hit.
R.C. Heaton at the State 15 and
Heaton turned on the burners to take
it in. Walter Butzu's interception on
State's next drive sparked the Daily.
On 4th down, Lemont found Ken
Artz at the MSU 10. Artz, who had

two touchdowns and an interception,
then displayed his "Magic" moves,
evading a State defender and diving
past the pylon to even the score at 2-
2.
Nose tackle Jeff Sheran penetrated
the State line all afternoon long, cre-
ating an unfriendly environment for
the MSU backs. His third tackle-for-
loss of the game forced State into a
long fourth and goal situation. John
Niyo almost intercepted the despera-
tion pass, but a slight timing error
allowed State to retake the lead 3-2.
The Green and White went on to pad
their lead at 4-2 as the momentum
was again theirs.
Lemont's 40 yard strike to
Heaton pulled the Daily to within
one, 4-3, but the State News an-
swered on the next drive. The News
soon had the ball again and Artz re-
turned an interception for a touch-
down. The Daily could muster no
more and State soon sealed the
game.
Afterwards, many on the Daily's
team were left with mixed emotions,
proud of their comeback yet disap-
pointed with the result. Perhaps
most frustrating was the fact that
Daily defender Jeff Cameron was
found to have been playing under the
influence of alcohol. He was imme-
diately suspended by coach Mike
Gill and his pay from the Daily was
docked. An outraged and thirsty Gill

later said, "That...will not be toler-
ated. His ill-advised thinking may
have cost us the game."
Furthermore, in the physical ac-
tion, many players suffered injuries
and the State players did look aw-
fully big and strong compared to the
Daily's squad. Sheran managed to
dominate despite a badly bruised left
quadricep; but Heaton, who notched
two touchdowns and an interception,
concurred with the rumor that not all
of the Spartan players were necessar-
ily News staffers.
"They had a lot of big guys,"
Heaton said. "We were overmanned
and at a definite disadvantage."
Said Lemont, jokingly, of the
State pressure, "I'm going to put a
bounty on the head of our player rep
who negotiated the 'two apple'
count."
Gill was most pleased with the
team's attitude this year. He put
most of the blame for last year's de-
feat on the team's lack of preparation
and negativism, but, this year's team
was "180 degrees different...you
could see it in their eyes. They knew
that they could win."
Going into the game, Gill had
sparked the team with the mottos
"We will never be embarrassed
again" and "Those who play will be
champions." The Daily certainly
wasn't embarrassed, but, alas, State
remains champions for another year.

14-16, 15-13,15-13, 15-2.
"We were rattled after the first
game," Bradley-Doppes said. "We
were playing with confidence, but
when the match was close, we lost
our discipline."
In games past, the inexperienced
Wolverines may have been tempted
to concede the match to the fired-up
Huskies - but not this time.
Michigan was wading through a
sloppy match by the time the fourth
game started. But fire and brimstone
by the coach - "I raised Cain" -
and consistency by the players led to
a speedy end to the match.
Senior captain Julia Sturm
finally had her good play translated
into Michigan victories. Her hitting
percentage was a stratospheric .467.
"Julia was tremendous," Bradley-
Doppes said. "Her play this weekend
was the biggest bright spot of our
play to date."
