Moeller searches for
gamebreaking back

Fielding's upsets
spark 'M' netters
by Chad Safran

by Theodore Cox
Daily Football Writer
The Michigan offense is rushing
for 227 yards per game, yet Wolver-
ine coach Gary Moeller isn't quite
satisfied with his team's running at-
tack.
The lack of a big run tops his list
of complaints. Although Ricky
Powers gained 118 yards Saturday
against Purdue, his longest run was
for 12 yards. Powers hasn't broken a
long run since the beginning of the
season when he ran 48 yards on a
carry against Boston College.
"I want somebody to break a
long run for us," Moeller said en-
thusiastically. "It's something we
have to have and it's not just the
running backs, either. I tell our kids
every play has the potential of going
all the way.
"In a game I think there are
about ten times or so that if you
knock a guy down, this play is going
to go all the way. But half the time
it's one guy who didn't go all out,
or he just missed a guy that reflects
on the outcome of the play," Moel-
ler added.
The other area that has been
troublesome is fumbles. Tailback
Jesse Johnson coughed up the ball
twice against the Boilermakers.
"Those fumbles always bother
me. You can't tolerate any fumbling
of the football. You just can't do
it," Moeller said. "As simple as

those things seem, that could have
potentially taken two touchdowns
away from us."
If Michigan hadn't dominated
Purdue so early, Johnson might not
have had the chance of seeing any
more action after he let the ball free
a second time.
"It's something that always
pops back in your mind as the guy
goes in there," Moeller said.
HOWARD'S LOSES RECORD:
Saturday afternoon, Michigan re-
ceiver Desmond Howard tied the
NCAA record for consecutive
touchdowns in regular season games
with 10 straight. But less than eight
hours later, Aaron Turner of Pacific
extended his streak to 11 games, one
better than Howard and Mike
Chronister of BYU (1976-1977).
TUBE TIME: There will be no
television coverage of this week's
Northwestern game, but the Nov.
16 Illinois-Michigan game will be
televised by ABC at 3:30 p.m.
INJURY REPORT: Defensive
tackle Chris Hutchinson will miss
the Northwestern game with a
sprain in his left knee. Moeller said
the injury will be monitored week-
to-week. Center Steve Everitt, full-
back Burnie Legette and linebacker
Steve Morrison all should return to
practice this week. But Moeller said
they will not play unless they are
100 percent.

+Jaimie Fielding's strong show-
ing led the way for Michigan's
women's tennis team in its fall fi-
nale, which came against some of the
top collegiate players this past
weekend at the Rolex Midwest
Women's Intercollegiate Tennis
Championships in Madison.
Fielding paced the Wolverines,
making it to the third-round before
falling to Notre Dame's Christy
Faustman, the tourney's No. 7 seed,
4-6, 6-3, 6-0. Along the way, she up-
set No. 13 seed Minna Hatakka 6-4,
6-1 in opening round action.
"I played some really good
matches," Fielding said. "It was up
and down the entire weekend. The
last match was disappointing be-
cause I didn't convert the game
points I had in the second set."
Michigan's Kim Pratt made her
way into the second round with a
victory over Northwestern's Alli-
son Turner, 6-2, 6-0. However, Pratt
fell to Indiana's Jody Yin - the
No. 4 seed and an eventual finalist
- in straight sets, 6-2,6-2.
Kalei Beamon advanced to the
second round with a 6-1, 6-3 victory
over Miami's Dale Cohen, but that

Despite gaining 118 yards against Purdue Saturday, Michigan tailback
Ricky Powers' longest run only covered 12 yards.

Life is Green-er for 'M' women's

is as far as she would go. No. 5 seed
Laura Schwab of Notre Dame ousted *
Beamon, 6-3, 7-5. The Wolverines
continued having difficulty with
the Fighting Irish as Simone Lacher
lost to the tournament's No. 2 seed,
Melissa Harris, 6-3, 7-5.
Both Amy Malik and Liz Cy-
ganiak were ousted in their opening
matches. Malik lost to Sofie Olson
of Minnesota, 6-3, 6-3. Indiana's
Kristi Thomas defeated Cyganiak 1
for a hard fought 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 vic-
tory.
The doubles teams had mixed'
success as well. The team of Pratt
and Fielding conquered the top-
seeded team of Amy Boyle and
Catalano, 6-3, 2-6, 6-1. The pair con-,
tinued their title quest with a 3-6, 7-
6 (8-6), 7-6 (10-8) victory over Al-
lison Turner and Lindsay Mathews
of Northwestern.
The Wolverine pair bowed out,
though, against Illinois' Kristi Me-
ola and Kristen Jones, 6-3, 6-4. The
other doubles team of Beamon and
Malik dropped a second-round 6-3,
5-7, 6-3 decision to the No. 4-seeded
team of Julie Willet and Branaca
Elsberry of Northwestern.
soccer club'
player," junior Jenny Steinhebel
added. "She works really hard in
practice and I think her intensity
rubs off on everyone else."
Her dedication to the team was
never more evident than in last
year's Big Ten tournament, when
Joyaux moved Green, who had never
played anything but forward in her
15-year career, to defense.
"I never imagined I had any abil- -
ity to play defense," Green said. "I
loved offense and I loved to score
goals."
"I think I was in a rut playing
forward because I had played it for
so long," she said. "I think it was an
adjustment I needed to make. It's
almost as good as scoring when you
stop a defender."
Despite the switch to defense
this season, Green will leave as the
Wolverines' leading career scorer.
She will also depart, partly respon-
sible for the most successful Mich-
igan women's soccer team to date;'
team that has already won a Big Ten
club championship and that has.a
chance to become national club
champions as well.

Four years ago, the Michigan
women's soccer club had just come
off a 7-7-5 record. In their previous
two seasons, the Wolverines had
mustered only nine victories in 26
games. But things would change. In
the fall of 1988, a strong class of
first-year players enrolled at Mich-
igan. Lori Green was among them.
Since Green's arrival, Michigan
has compiled a 47-21-7 record, and
notched a school-record 24 victories
this year after winning the Big Ten
club championship last weekend.
"I'd like to think that we (Class
of 1992) raised the level of play,"
Green said. "It's so much more or-
ganized and competitive since I first
came. We play and practice as if
we're varsity."

Growing up with two older
brothers has helped Green develop
the aggressive style of play that has
has led her teammates to refer to her
as 'Dozer' (as in bulldozer).
"Being the only girl in the fam-
ily, I always tried to keep up with
my brothers," she said. "They defi-
nitely toughened me up. I'm not in-
timidated by anyone on the field."
In high school, Green and her
Livonia Stevenson teammates cap-
tured the state title her first season.
Green went on to start the next
three years, captaining the team the
last two. She also earned all-league
honors three times and all-area acco-
lades her senior season.
Green also participated on the
Michigan Olympic Development
team as well as on a local travelling
team for four years.
"Our travelling team went to
Europe my senior year," Green said.
"We made it to the semifinals of
the Norway Cup, the largest youth
soccer tournament in the world. It
was a great experience."
But with high school behind her,
Lori Green, world-traveller, had to
become Lori Green, collegiate soccer

player.
"It came down really to North
Carolina, Michigan, and Michigan
State," she said. "I was still on the
admissions waiting list to North
Carolina in April of my senior year,
so I just decided to go to Michigan."
Opting for the club team at
Michigan, Green passed up a schol-
arship opportunity at MSU. Look-
ing back, she has no regrets.
"When I entered as a freshman, I
honestly thought we would be var-
sity by my sophomore or junior
year," Green said. "At first, I re-
gretted it because it was always a
dream of mine to play varsity
somewhere. As a result, Green's
teammates named her club president
this season."
She's not the only one who's
glad. Michigan coach Phil Joyaux
knows that his squad would be very
different without Lori Green.
"Lori is probably playing the
best soccer of anyone on the team
right now," he said. "She sets the
pace for every game and she provides
leadership by the way she plays the
game."
"Lori's a great leader and a great
