Men's soccer drops

finale, 3-0

Oakland penalty kick denies 'M' seniors final victory

by Mike Rancilio
The Michigan men's soccer club
lost to Oakland Saturday night, 3-0.
Oakland, the eighth-ranked team in
Division II, was the last opponent
of the season for the Wolverines,
who finished 8-10-3.
The Wolverines played with
Oakland for the first half, but gave
up a penalty-kick goal five minutes
into the second half. Michigan never

got back on track.
Although Michigan remained
under .500, coach Aaron Smith con-
sidered the season a success.
"We have nothing to be ashamed
of," Smith said as he addressed his
team following the loss. "We've
played competitive varsity pro-
grams and have played very tough."
The club's schedule was consid-
ered more competitive than most

varsity teams' schedule. Their list
of opponents included Notre Dame,
Wisconsin, Ohio State, and Michi-
gan State.
The end of the match signified
the end of the collegiate careers of
co-captain Dick Hillary, Rob
Albritton, Tim Puckett, Doug
Spamer, and goalkeeper Marc
Kuiper. Hillary felt his three years
at Michigan was a great experience.

"I came to Michigan for aca-
demic reasons, but I've enjoyed play-
ing soccer, too," Hillary said. "I've
made many great friends."
Michigan is already looking
forward to next season. Kelley
Kuehne will be back to anchor the
defense, and Brian Rosewarne and
Resa Sadjapour will lead an improv-
ing offense.

ficulties greatly contributed to the
defeat.
"We just got a little tentative at
the beginning (of the match)," she
said, "because they were just ripping
on our serves. I think that's one of
the areas where we got beat."
Michigan's service woes started
early. Errors by Smith, Horrigan,

Collias and Tarnisha Thompson
turned the ball over to the Lady Li-
ons and contributed to Penn State's
6-1 run to start the match. Even
Bradley-Doppes' timeout couldn't
take the momentum from the surg-
ing Lions, who capitalized on two
more missed serves and went on a 9-
3 run after the break to take the first
game.
Game Two started just as omi-
nously, with Penn State taking the

first three points and building a 7-1
lead. Then the Wolverines started to
claw back, sparked by the play of
sophomore Fiona Davidson, who led
Michigan with 13 kills and 2 aces.
Junior Hayley Lorenzen, who
turned out a 10-kill match, also con-
tributed to the comeback that gave
Michigan a 9-7 lead. But after a Penn
State timeout, the rally fizzled, and
the visitors went on to take the
game and a 2-0 lead to intermission.
The third game was much like
the second, with Penn State racing
to a 9-2 lead, allowing Michigan to
come within 9-7, and prevailing in
the end.
"We just didn't have the effort
(to finish the rallies)," Davidson

said. "We'd get (momentum), but,
unfortunately, we let it slip away a
lot. I still think we put up a helluva
fight, but we've fought a lot better
than we did tonight. "
Junior middle blocker Leanne
Kling was all over the court, lead-
ing both teams with 15 kills. Her
effort typified the Lions' showing,
and most Wolverines agreed that
Penn State's power was, in the end,
too much to handle.
Which leaves the obvious ques-
tion: what does Michigan do to snap
its losing streak and prepare for the
rest of the season?
"We just have to go to practice
and work hard," Horrigan said.
"And then work harder."
