Kickers almost foul out, pull off

Daily Sports Writer
The story is familiar to the Michi-
gan women's soccer team --it comes
out and dominates the entire game,
but can't seem to finish strong.
"This seems to be the story of this
year," said midfielder Deb Flaherty,
after the Wolverines (7-4-1) pulled
off a 2-1 victory over Siena Heights
(6-7-0) at Elbel Field. Flaherty's ball
handling was one of the game's high-
The first half of the game was a
shotfest for Michigan. Most of the
play was in the Saints' half of the


field, as the Wolverines had 18 shots
on goal and the Saints had none.
However, Michigan was unable
to make good on many of those
shots. Its two tallies were both within
the first half hour of the game.
Sophomore midfielder Kim
Phillips scored the first goal ten min-
utes into the first half, guiding in a
cross from Ruth Poulin. Last night's
goal makes Phillips the team's lead-
ing scorer, with five goals so far.
"We created a lot of opportuni-
ties but we just haven't been finish-
ing," Phillips said. "It's so simple,
but it just hasn't been happening."

But it happened for Alicia
Treadway, who scored the winning
goal off a loose ball that the Saints
couldn't clear to put the Wolverines
up, 2-0, at the half.
Another standout was Whitney
Ricketts, who tied for both the most
shots on goal and most fouls with five
and four, respectively. The Wolver-
ines had 17 fouls, more than in any
other game.
The Saints came out strong in the
second half, and all three of their
shots were within the first 20 minutes
of the second half. Colleen Baierl, a
Siena Heights offensive record holder

-1 victory
and Honorable Mention All-Ameri-
can, kicked a cross from Jamie Cline
into the left corner of the net.
The Wolverine bench sat silent in
"I think we went out there overcon-
fident," said defender Carrie Povilaitis,
still out with an injured tailbone.
Coach Debbie Belkin also threw
her hands up in frustration more than
"We should take every game as a
Big Ten game and that's what we need
to do," Belkin said, noting that if the
Wolverines had focused better, more
of their 26 shots would have gone in.

into it doesn't allow that to happen."
Heathcote interjected, "Most guys
die before then."
Watson also praised Heathcote as
a mentor and thanked him for advice
that was given long ago.
"He said, 'Perry, coaching sucks.
But it beats working."'
Heathcote continued to delight
the crowd, embarrassing one of the
members of the audience after the

coach was asked which one of his
former players he would build a
team around.
"Are you on drugs?" he responded
before giving the obvious answer of
former Spartan and L.A. Laker great
Magic Johnson.
Fisher, when he could get a word
in edgewise, said more about past
performers than of the new additions
to his squad. He talked about the
losses of Jalen Rose and Juwan
Howard and how the current Wol-
verines have "big shoes to fill."
Fisher also returned to Howard

when the topic of rookie NBA con-
tracts came up.
"(He) is chomping at the bit to get
to camp," Fisher said. "He's going
on the company line 'Fish I'm wait-
ing to get my fair market value.'
They've offered Juwan 30 million
over 10 years."
"You can hardly live off that,"
Heathcote again interjected.
All three coaches agreed that the
NCAA needs to consider a plan that
will allow players to receive pay-
ments aside from scholarships for
their service to their university.
Fisher supported his argument by
explaining how greatly the Univer-
sity has benefited from the recent
success of the Wolverine basketball
"They had an article in the New
York Times where the University of

Michigan is the No. I generator of
money back to the program through
royalties," Fisher said.
"We were almost six million dol-
lars last year. Before Chris Webber
and Jalen Rose came in we were a
million and a half.
"If you are on scholarship you
cannot work. I don't think that we
should give them a thousand dollars
a month, but I do think they should
get something."
Fisher will get his first look at
this year's team, including freshmen
Jerod Ward, Maurice Taylor, Maceo
Baston, Willie Mitchell and Travis
Conlan, during a full team scrim-
mage at Crisler Arena immediately
following the Penn State football
game Saturday.
Admission is free and seating is
on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Michigan forward Betsy Axley dribbles the ball in the Wolverines' 2-1 win
over Siena Heights yesterday. She had 5 fouls in Michigan's 17-foul game.
