Alive and kicking soccer squads prove to be offensive
* Men provide late fireworks to hold off Macomb
Axley tallies two goals, two assists against Tiffin

Amongst the swarms of intramural
soccer games at Mitchell Field, the
Michigan men's soccer team (3-2-1)
defeated Macomb Community College,
4-2. The players stood out from their
IM counterparts, who donned the tradi-
tional red and yellow pull-overjerseys,
not only by dress, but by their superior
play. Or so they hoped.
The starting whistle blew and nei-
ther team seemed able to get it together.
In a half riddled with free and corner
kicks, it wasn't until the end of the half
that the Wolverines appeared to snap
out of its lull.
It started when Michigan midfielder
Ian Kurth kicked a good cross pass to
junior forward Andy Cosenza,
Cosenza's shot missed, but it appeared
to be the spark that set the Wolverines
into motion. Soon afterwards, Michi-
gan midfielder Adam Carriere nearly
beat Macomb goalie Adam
Mangiapane on a breakaway, but
Mangiapane made an outstanding div-
ing save to keep the score tied at zero.
Midway through the second half,
the Wolverines got the break they
needed. Mangiapane deflected a cor-
ner kick, but Kurth was there to put it in
"It took 72 minutes before we put
things together," Michigan coach Steve
Burns said. "It should be five minutes
into (the game) when I can breath a sigh

Even though the Michigan women's
soccer team was upstaged by the prac-
ticing marching band before its 4-0 win
over NAIA power Tiffin (5-3), once
the game started the Wolverines were
the only act in town.
Freshman forward Betsy Axley led
the Wolverines (3-2-1) with two goals
while assisting sophomore Kim Phillips
on two others.
"I think we work well together,"
Axley said of her on-field chemistry
with Phillips. "I like playing with her
because she's always communicating
with me, and it helps a lot on the field for
someone to always be talking to you."
The Wolverines struck early and
often in the first half. Phillips started
the scoring six minutes into the game
when Axley hit her with a pass in front
of the goal. At 18:07, Axley assisted
Phillips again with a pass ten yards out
of the penalty box. Phillips followed
with a high, hard shot over Tiffin goalie
Carrie Shroeder to give the Wolverines
a 2-0 lead.
At 29:44, freshman defender
Michelle McQuaid's pass over the de-
fense allowed Axley to score a
breakaway goal to give Michigan a 3-
0 halftime lead.
Fifteen minutes into the second half,
Axley scored her second goal to cap the
Wolverines 4-0 victory.
After the game, Axley was modest
about her performance.
"Just because I had two goals and
two assists doesn't make it my best
game," Axley said. "This game I tried
to keep my composure when I was
shooting and it paid off."
Michigan coach Debbie Belkin,
though, was impressed with the
performace of both Axley and Phillips.
"Kim got some good goals and
Betsy got some goals and had some
chances," Belkin said. "So it was nice
to see them do well."
In addition to the efforts of Belkins
and Phillips, goaltenders Jory Welkins
and Alicia Smith helped pace the Wol-
verines by combining for 14 saves.
The win gives Michigan much
needed confidence and momentum
going in to its weekend matchups
against Minnesota and Valparaiso.
"It's a good win but Minnesota is a
tough team," Belkin said. "And
Valparaiso is not as strong as Minne-
sota, but it's tough being the third game
in five days."
