No vacancy in penalty box
By Andy Knudson
Daily Sports Writer
SAULT STE. MARIE -
Universities have received probations,
even "death penalties," for lack of insti-
Given such precedent, referee Matt
Shegos woald seem eligible for similar
punishments after whistling 43 penal-
ties Saturday in Abel Arena.
Shegos also seemed eligible for
several assists. Only one goal in
Michigan's 4-2 victory over Lake
Superior was scored at even strength.
The most telling image of the game
came early in the second period, when
seven Wolverines and six Lakers all
struggled to fit into their respective
"We were just trying to get some
open space so we could breathe,"
Michigan's Warren Luhning said.
Luhning received a pair of minor
penalties for roughing after an alterca-
tion in front of Lake Superior goal-
tender John Grahame. But Luhning did
not skate off the ice alone. His consec-
utive penalties were only two of the 12
penalties called at 1:13 of the second
The melee started when Luhning
- positioned at the top of the goal
crease - tried to control a rebound
given up by Grahame. The goaltender
pounced on the puck while Luhning
was poking at it, and several Lakers
wanted Michigan's right wing to back
Being pushed from behind,
Luhning fell on top of Grahame.
"I was laying on the goalie and I got
hit and hit and hit," Luhning said.
"(Then) they ripped my helmet off.
There was some pushing - no fighting
- but the ref decided to throw the
whole line in the box.
"I thought it was kind of funny."
Luhning eventually got untangled,
but his work wasn't done. He spotted
one of his freshmen in trouble.
"(Sean) Peach had two guys, so I
thought I'd go over and grab one of
them," Luhning said. "I guess I got
(another) penalty for doing that."
Luhning didn't just grab the guy.
He got the Laker in a headlock from
behind and yanked him off Peach's
Peach - playing in his first big
game as a Wolverine - was pleasantly
surprised to hear that his teammates
were looking out for him. After all, that's
how he got involved in the first place.
"1 just saw one guy hit (John)
Madden from behind, so I went in
there to help him out and just grab
onto a guy - nothing really serious,"
But like everybody else on the ice at
the time, he was thrown in the box for
Fourteen more penalties were called
in the second period, for a total of 26 in
Thirteen different Wolverines
earned penalties on the night, and the
penalty virus found an unlikely host at
the end of the game.
All four of Michigan's third period
penalties were whistled against senior
captain Brendan Morrison.
"I can't remember taking four
penalties in a game, let alone in the
third period," Morrison said.
But even with their captain in the
box for eight minutes of the final peri-
od, the Wolverines came out on top in a
grinder of a game.
Before Matt Herr scored the short-
handed goal that put the game away for
the Wolverines, he had to pay the price
"Those things happen," Herr said
If two is company and three is a crowd, what's seven? That's how many Wolverines were in the penalty box Saturday night.
about a previous breakaway on which
he was pounded off the puck. "You're
looking down at your feet, and the next
thing you know - clocked!"
Michigan coach Red Berenson said
the penalties are obviously an area in
which the team will have to improve.
The infractions could have
stemmed from few different factors,
"It might be a little bit of sloppi-
ness because they haven't been offici-
ated as well in practice (as in a game)
he said. "(Or) It might be the fact that
the officials are calling it tighter than
we remember they called it last year.

M' women's cross country gets wake-up call
By Chris Farah
Daily Sports Writer
The No. 12 Michigan women's cross
country team was stunned Friday at the
Michigan Intercollegiate in Dowagiac by
an upstart Eastern Michigan squad, 41-
"Wake-up call," was how senior cap-
tain Jen Barber described the experience
- the Wolverines' first loss of the sea-
son. The loss came at an invitational the
Wolverines have won ever since it began
"Overall, we had a couple of good
races - no one (on our team) had an
awful race by any means," Barber said.
Michigan's runners did finish strong-
ly, despite the four-point loss. Freshman
Elizabeth Kampfe placed sixth overall
for the Wolverines, while sophomore
Katie McGregor came in ninth.
Freshmen Marcy Akard and Allison Noe
were not far behind with ninth- and 11 th-
place finishes, respectively. Barber
placed 12th overall.
The Wolverines' best efforts were not
enough to beat the Eagles, however,
whose top three runners placed two-
'We talked about how we can't let up
at any of the meets, (but) we weren't
thinking about Eastern, really," Barber
said. "We didn't go in thinking 'easy
win,' but it's hard when you're not
expecting (to lose)."
The Michigan softball team hosted
Eastern Michigan, Wayne State and
Toledo in the Wolverine Classic at
Alumni Field this weekend. Michigan
was not a very good host, however, as it
won all four of its games.
Michigan coach Carol Hutchins was
happy with her squad's efforts over the
"We were very focused and we hit
the ball hard," Hutchins said. "We were
also very good on defense. We didn't let
errors lead to big innings."
In the first game against Eastern
Michigan, the Wolverines jumped ahead,
7-0, after two innings. Michigan did not
let up as it mercied the Eagles, 12-2, in
the sixth inning.
The Wolverines continued their dom-
inance in the second game of the day,
defeating Wayne State, 9-0. The game
remained close for the first few innings,
but the Wolverines scored five runs in
the fourth inning to turn it into a

an early 5-1 lead after two innings, but

In their fourth and final game, the
Wolverines shut out Toledo, 4-0.

The second leg of the Intercollegiate
Tennis Association's Grand Slam kicks
off this week in Austin, Texas at the All-
American Championship. The Michigan
tennis team will be represented by Arvid
Swan, the team's highest ranked player.
However, Swan will need to play well in
the qualifying rounds tomorrow and
Wednesday in order to place into the
main draw, beginning Oct. 17.
"This tournament will give me a
chance to challenge myself against some
real good players,' Swan said.
The second of four Grand Slams, the
All-American Championship is one of
the most competitive and prestigious
tournaments of the year.
"All the best players in the nation will
be there," Swan said. "The competition
will certainly be great."
Ranked third in Region IV, Swan
placed out of the pre-qualifying rounds,
but he still will need to survive as one of
only four players to qualify to the main
"The competition in Austin will be
very tough," Michigan coach Brian
Eisner said. "The tournament is a single
elimination, so Arvid will have to win
four matches to make the main draw."
Eisner appears optimistic about
Swan's possibility to qualify.
"Arvid is absolutely capable of mak-
ing the main draw" Eisner said. "We
wouldn't send (Swan) if he didn't have a
chance to qualify."

come by Friday against the Nittany
Lions. Scoring opportunities were tough
to come by as both teams displayed
Even though Penn State narrowly
squeaked out a victory, the Wolverines
dominated most, if not all, of the game.
"(Penn State) had three opportunities,
basically," Karen Montgomery said.
"We had so many more shots than they
did. Everyone's individual defense was
great. It was just a matter of scoring. We
dominated that game, definitely."
Penn State's only goal of the game
came the 16:30 mark of the first half
from sophomore midfielder Courtney
Lawson. She drilled a 30-yard shot into
the upper left corner of the net past
Michigan goalkeeper Jessica Jones.
The Wolverines' inability to hit the
net was not because of a lack of shot
attempts, a circumstance that hindered
them in their games against Washington
The Wolverines outshot Penn State,
24-16 and had numerous scoring oppor-
tunities right infront of the Lions' net. In
Friday's game, the Wolverines more than
doubled all of the shots on goal they had
the previous weekend in Seattle.
But many of Michigan's problems
came as a result of not being aggressive
on offense and attacking their oppo-
nent's goal. There were many times dur-
ing the game where the Wolverines were
able to generate a fast break, but their
weak passing game would allow Penn
State's defense to recover and break up
many of Michigan's shots.
"I think that we need more fury
towards the goal," Montgomery said. "I
think that we just need to get down and
dirty and get the ball into the goal. That
is a definite weakness."
Michigan had a few excellent
attempts on goal from Limauro as well
as Berendowsky and freshmen Emily
Schmitt, but the Penn State goalkeeper.
made impressive saves in order to pre-
serve the shutout.
Berendowsky saw a lot of action in
the first half as she had a few opportuni-
ties to create some plays in front of the
net. She had control of the ball and sent-
the ball in front of the goal, but no
Michigan player was there to knock it in
for a score.
Missed opportunities and poor shoot-
ing was the result of many of these mis-
"We had great opportunities, nic
plays, nice build up but our shots wer
not dangerous," Belkin said.
