Playing a last place team in any
sport is supposed to be an easy task
- especially if that team hasn't won
a single game in its conference.
However, a last place team may
have an advantage if their opponents
are looking ahead to their next
match. This past weekend, Michigan
suffered from that syndrome in Iowa
The first of the squad's two
matches came Saturday against last
place Michigan State (3-14-2 over-
all; 0-6-1 in the conference), yet they
could only salvage a 1-1 tie. On
Sunday, the Wolverines took on
ninth-ranked Iowa (13-3; 5-1) in an
important divisional contest but
Earlier this season, the Wolver-
ines defeated the rival Spartans, 3-0,
in East Lansing, but this time,
Michigan (12-4-2; 3-3-1) did not
play up to its usual standards.

could have," senior co-captain Josee

performance," sophomore Katie
It was Michigan who came from
behind to tie the game as junior
right midfielder Hilary Hughes
scored on a corner kick late in the
second half with less than ten
minutes to go.
While the defense played well
throughout, the offense continually
missed chances to score, especially
in the overtime period. It wasn't
only Michigan's sputtering offense
that contributed to the tie. "Statc
was very aggressive - they played
strong game," Charvet said.
After the tie with the Spartans, it
would have been easy for the
Wolverines to have a letdown
against the Hawkeyes. Instead, the
team felt like they turned in a strong
performance. "We rebounded very
well against Iowa - we used the tie
against State to our advantage,"
For the majority of the game, the
Wolverines trailed 2-1, the lone
Michigan goal coming from junior
right wing Kristen Shapier in the
first half. The potent Hawkeye
offense continually pressured the
Wolverines deep into Michigan
territory only to be turned back
numerous times by highly talented
first-year goaltender, Nikki Hoover.
Later in the second half, Iowa
added an insurance goal to pull away,
The Wolverines will have another
crack at the Hawkeyes this Friday at
Tartan Turf. While the team was
generally happy with their perform-
ance, they realize that there are areas
where improvement is needed.
"We need to dictate the course of
play by controlling the ball more,"
With only three games remain-
ing, the Wolverines will have to
perform very well if they expect to
be picked for the prestigious 12-team
national championship tournament
Yet, for now, the Wolverines are
only concerned with the Hawkeyes.
"We are aware of the playoff situa-
tion but our main concern is to play
one game at a time," Charvet said.
Michigan strong safety Vada Murray stretches to get a hand on an
extra point attempt Saturday. His efforts were in vain, and the
Wolverines fell to the Iowa Hawkeyes.
'M' regroups after
two straight losses

When Michigan football coach Gary Moeller entered his weekly press
luncheon yesterday, he said, "I don't need much to eat today." Eating was
probably the last of Moeller's concerns and would probably cause more
indigestion than he could handle.
Rebounding from two consecutive losses by one point is the major
concern of Moeller and his team. The last time the Wolverines suffered
back-to-back one-point losses was in 1937 - before Moeller was born
and when Bo Schembechler was only eight.
"Our season isn't over," Moeller said. "We're not a dead group yet. I
don't want to give you any impression that we're a completely down'
team. They're (the players) obviously down because they didn't win a
game, but if I went out there and didn't see effort, then I'd be upset."
