Men's kickers look for cure to
what ails them against Siena

By REBECCA MOATZ
Daily Sports Writer
A loss to a crosstown rival is a hard
pill to swallow, but sometimes the rem-
edy comes at the perfect time. For the
Michigan men's soccer team, that time
is now.
After losing to Eastern Michigan,
2-0, in the inaugural Washtenaw Cup
last Wednesday, the Wolverines (8-4-
2) visit Siena Heights this afternoon in
an attempt to make up for the defeat.
Though Michigan is not overlook-
ing today's opponent, the team is not
expecting much of a fight.
"We shouldn't have a problem,"
Wolverine forward Andy Cosenza said.
"They really are not that good."
Last year, the Wolverines topped
the Spartans, 6-1, after allowing sev-
eral of the team's younger kickers to

play.
"They are not quite as strong (as
Michigan)," Michigan midfielder Kris
Wiljanen said. "They are a smaller
school and pull from a smaller talent
pool ... they are not at the same level as
us so they have to make up for that."
This is a direct contrast to the game
against Eastern Michigan. The Eagles
and Wolverines were two equally
matched teams, but the Wolverines fell
behind after starting to play the Eagle's
game style. Yet Michigan took the loss
and is using it to help get set for today's
match.
"It was the kind of game that sepa-
rates the good from the great," Wiljanen
said. "We took the negative aspects of
the game and are making them posi-
tive."
A win over the Spartans could be

the morale boost that the Wolverines
need. However, in order to win, the
team needs to focus on finishing its
plays and putting the ball in the net.
And though the team recently won the
Big Ten tournament, it did not do so by
scoring many goals.
"By winning with a large number
of goals, we will get our confidence
back," Wiljanen said. "A win like that
brings a general attitude change and
boosts the team's confidence."
And a morale boost coupled with a
win is what is needed in order for
Michigan to make it back to Phoenix
where last year the team placed ninth in
the National Club Tournament.
"We are still finding our identity as
a team," Wiljanen commented.
A win over Siena Heights may just
be the pill that provides that identity.

Los Angeles Times
MONTEREY, Calif.- All Mario
Andretti wanted from his 407th and
final Indy car race was to finish, to be
running on the track when he saw the
checkered flag for the last time. He
came up four laps short, disappointing
not only himself but most of the esti-
mated 75,000 who swarmed over the
hills of Laguna Seca on a warm Sunday
for the final race of the season.
The "Last Lap of Mario," as the
Bank of America 300 was advertised,
came on lap 80 with Andretti sitting on
pit row, his engine having expired.
9 The race ended, as expected, with
Paul Tracy in the lead on lap 84 in one
of Roger Penske's red-and-white
Marlboro Penskes. It was the 12th time
in 16 races that a Penske car finished
first this season. Al Unser Jr., who
clinched the PPG Cup championship
two races ago, won eight, Tracy three
and Emerson Fittipaldi one.
But the Toyota Grand Prix of
Monterey weekend belonged to Mario
Andretti, who was retiring after 31
years at the highest level of Indy car
racing.
It almost ended before it began.
Mario, who started in the sixth row

next to his son Michael, got caught in a
first-lap scramblecaused when Michael
spun between the second and third turns
after touching tires with Fittipaldi.
While sitting in the middle of the track,
Michael was clobbered by Bobby
Rahal, who could not avoid the stalled
car.
Mario was right behind them.
"It was exactly what I didn't want
to happen," Andretti said later. "When
Michael and Rahal got together, I
braked hard and someone - I don't
know who - hit me in the rear and
punctured my right rear tire.
"It was going to take a lot more than
that to take me out. Lucky there was a
yellow (caution flag) and I came in and
got a new tire. That put me back in the
rear (22nd) but I put my nose to the
grindstone and worked my way back
up. I didn't take too many chances, I
don't think I made a mistake. Ijust kept
creeping up and I was smiling to my-
self about finishing in the top 10 when
all of a sudden, at the top of the cork-
screw, everything just went silent."
Andretti was in seventh place, just
after lapping his teammate Nigel
Mansell -also driving in his last Indy
car race - when the engine let go.
