Women kickers win overtime battle
Phillips' tally lifts Wolverines over physical
Detroit-Mercy squad, 1-0, in rainy
By MICHELLE LEE THOMPSON
For the Daily
Just before the end of the second
half of last night's then-scoreless
women's soccer match between
Michigan (2-1-1) and Detroit-Mercy
(1-2-1), the referees realized just
how physical the game had gotten.
Then, they gave Titan forward
Jennifer Tanguay a red card.
And then, in the most physical
game of her team's short-lived his-
tory, Wolverine midfielder Kim
Phillips took a shot from the left
corner that sailed right over the head
of backup goalie Nikki Thomas.
'(Phillips) was fired up,
and she was the most
physical (player) on the
field. When she put
that up, we all knew it
was going in.'
- Alicia Smith
Michigan soccer player
Sophomore co-captain Phillips
scored her first goal of the season,
pulling off a 1-0 win with 2:28 to go
in the first overtime period.
"The red card was critical. We
really took advantage of the extra
man," Phillips said. "They played
as physical, but we really held our
ground and that payed off."
But the Wolverines were not so
consistently physical during the en-
In fact, coach Debbie Belkin said,
"(Detroit-Mercy) is real physical,
we came out tentative."
"How can you let them come out
and dictate the physical (play)?
You've got to be on balance," Belkin
added. "But we got the win."
Senior co-captain Alicia Smith
said Belkin emphasized aggressive-
ness at halftime. "Progressively
then, the game just got more physi-
cal," Smith said.
Phillips' only shot on goal was
one of 10 total shots by Michigan,
including five by freshman forward
"Our plan was just to get some
shots," Belkin said, commenting on
Michigan's game strategy.
"(Phillips) was fired up, and she
was the most physical (player) on
the field," Smith said. "When she
put that up, we all knew it was going
But Phillips herself was appar-
ently not so sure. "I was just stand-
ing there. I looked up and no one
was there, so I just put it up," she
said. "I didn't want to react to it,
because what if you react too soon?
But as soon as she put her arms up,
I saw the ball fly right through."
As the end of the second half
loomed, the game still scoreless, the
rain that began late in the first half
seemed to pick up. However, the
downpour seemed to boost Wolver-
All five Detroit-Mercy shots on
goal were easily blocked by sopho-
more goaltender Jory Welchans.
"She was confident and steady,"
Belkin said of her netminder.
The Titans, who fought for many
of Michigan's starters during the
recruiting period, have a year more
experience under their belts and *
went into last night's game with the
same 1-1-1 record as the Wolver-
"They played hard. They have
some good players," Belkin said.
"They have some forwards that score
goals, but they didn't (tonight)."
Another near-goal by Poulin oc-
curred on a penalty kick. That shot,
too, sailed over the goaltender's
arms - right into the bar, silencing
the crowd with a hollow reverbera-
"At the end, we played as hard as
they did," Smith said.
Or even harder.
