One streak ends and another one
The Wolverines dropped a close
match to Western Michigan yes-

15-2, as the Broncos lengthened their
winning streak over Michigan to
nine games in eight years. Western
.also terminated the Wolverines three
game winning streak.
Michigan lost its momentum
early in the fourth game when setter
Autumn Collins went down with a
twisted right ankle. -
"We're having a lot trouble at our
setting position right now getting
consistency," Michigan coach Peggy
Bradley-Doppes said. "You can see
that once Autumn went out so did
The loss only revealed one bright
spot on the Wolverine squad.
"I'm very disappointed with our
performance. I felt we had a great
performance from Julia Sturm, but a
sub-par performance from the rest of
the team," the coach said.
Sturm tallied ten digs in
yesterday's game putting her total at
over 600 for her career. More impor-
tantly her 29 kills carried the
Wolverines through the five game
"We knew Julia was having a
good match and we relied too heavily
on her," Bradley-Doppes said. "You
can't do that against a good team
like Western Michigan. We needed
to come and play ball and we just

side, according to Bronco coach Rob
Buck. He felt his team was lucky to
escaped a loss because Sturm "kept
hitting the same shot over and over
and over again."
Michigan assistant coach Jim
Smoot was impressed with Sturm's
play as well. "Julia was un-
believable," he said.
Although pleased with her
performance Sturm hoped for more.
"We could have one this match,"
the senior captain said, "and we
didn't give it enough of what we
have to win it."
The third game of the match was

unusually long and draining for both
teams. Although Michigan won that
game, they lost their consistency.
"We were good at times, but also
we were struggling for no apparent
reason," Sturm said.
Buck felt the game was poorly
played on both sides. "Both teams

Scoring goals has never been a
problem for the Michigan women's
soccer team. Prior to playing in this
past weekend's Ohio State club
tournament, the team had scored a
total of 87 goals this season.
The team did little harm to its
goal-scoring reputation, adding 28
more goals in five games and
winning the ten-team tournament at
-olumbus, Ohio in the process.
Michigan won all five games it
played in this weekend's tournament.
On Saturday the Wolverines defeated
Kent State, 9-0; Denison, 7-0; and
Ohio, 3-1. On Sunday, they picked
up right where they left off,
disposing of Miami of Ohio, 7-0,
and Purdue, 2-1.
"We pretty much dominated the
First four games," captain Krista
Towne said. "Purdue was much
tougher. It was hard adjusting to
Sunday's Purdue game, the
championship match, was the only
close game the team played all
weekend. At the end of regulation,
Michigan and Purdue were tied at 1-

overtime to give Michigan the vic-
tory. After five games, two overtime
periods, and 28 goals in two days,
the Wolverines had finally won the
"We outscored the Michigan foot-
ball team this weekend," sophomore
center forward Shannon Loper said.
The team's prodigious scoring
had to come to an end at some point,
however, and that point came yester-
day when the Wolverines dropped a
2-0 decision at Siena Heights. The
shutout marked the first time Mich-
igan had been held scoreless in sev-
Siena scored both of its goals
within the first ten minutes of the
game to take the early lead. The
deficit was too large for the usually
high-scoring Wolverines to come -
back from, as they were shut down
the rest of the way offensively.
The loss was not surprising,
however, considering the exhausting
weekend the team had just been
through. The players entered the
game drained by the tournament
completed just two days earlier.
"We didn't play well at all
yesterday against Siena," Loper said.
"Everyone was just really tired."
Towne agreed: "Siena just came
out a lot stronger than we did. They
were a lot more physical, and they
beat us to the ball the whole time.
They dominated the first half. We
really weren't prepared. Everyone
was still sore and tired from the

another uninspired, scoreless perfor-
mance from her team.
"We're going to definitely get
psyched up for that one," Loper said.
