Kickers' season ends with loss to
p Wisconsin in Big Ten tournament

0

By MICHELLE LEE THOMPSON
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's soccer
team capped off its season this week-
end in Madison at the Big Ten tourna-
ment.
In the first-ever conference tour-
nament, Michigan (11-7-2), seeded
seventh, faced second-seeded Penn
State (14-5) and won by the seat of its
pants. However, the Wolverines did
not make such a showing in the semi-
finals against No. 1 seed Wisconsin,
losing, 3-0.
In the game against the Lady Li-
ons, the scoreboard read 1-1 at the
end of the second overtime. Fresh-
man Karen Montgomery had opened
the scoring less than five minutes into
the game on a close pass from sopho-
more Kim Phillips. Penn State's
Lauren Olmsted, the league's tenth-
leading scorer, put in the tying goal
25 minutes later without assistance.
"We were stringing together passes,
we played extremely well," Phillips
said. "The game never should have
even gone into overtime."
The single-elimination tournament
called for a penalty-kick tiebreak to

determine the winner.
Phillips and freshmen Debbie
Flaherty and Amanda Gauthier all
succeeded on their kicks, while the
Lions were only successful on one of
their four attempts.
"I've never seen a keeper save that
many penalty kicks in my life,"
Phillips said of Michigan goaltender
Jory Welchans.
DefenderCarrie Povilaitis was also
impressed with Welchans' tending.
"She loves (penalty kicks),"
Povilaitis said. "She's so confident.
She stayed so calm and the shots she
saved were incredible. She was awe-
some; we were all going crazy."
The Wolverines pulled it off, upset-
ting aPenn State team which had beaten
Michigan 1-0 in the regular season.
"That had to be probably the great-
est victory of our season," Michigan
forward Ruth Poulin said. "We felt
more confident going into the penalty
kicks, like we knew we were going to
come out on top."
However, Povilaitis said the team's
energy was tapped at the first game,
and the Wolverines went into the semi-
finals tired. "We were emotionally

drained - physically drained."
The Wolverine defense nearly col-
lapsed against the Badgers' offensive
surge, which knocked home three
goals from within six yards of the
goal in the first half. Wisconsin (16-
5), the eventual tournament winner,
defended their home field flawlessly,
shutting out the visiting team.
"Our first half was totally not like
us," Flaherty said. "We came out al-
most scared."
Even though Michigan was down
3-0atthehalf, itcameoutstrong in the
second period, getting in five shots -
its only five shots of the game- to
Wisconsin's three shots. Neither team
made good on any of those attempts.
"Wejust came out timid and didn't
play our game," Phillips said. "We
never got into our game plan until the
second half. Unfortunately, it was 3-
0 at halftime."
Big Ten officials named the all-
conference teams, and Flaherty was
honored with second team All-Big Ten.
Flaherty led the Wolverines with 53
shots and seven assists. She started
every game and scored 15 goals, in-
cluding two game-winners.

EVAN PETRIE/Daily
Debbie Flaherty was named to the Big Ten All-Conference second team after leading the Wolverines in shots on goal
with 53. The freshman made good on 15 of them, including two game-winners.
