'M' soccer game about as
suspenseful as political race
Wolverines jump out to big lead as quickly as Clinton

The 1996 presidential election might
turn out to be like Michigan's 7-0 victo-
ry against Valparaiso on Sunday.
The Wolverines had easily won the
game long before it officially ended.
When sophomore Jessica Limauro
scored Michigan's fifth goal 4:29 into
the second half, it was clear that
Michigan (9-6-3 overall, 3-3-1 Big Ten)
would extend its unbeaten streak to a
team-record six games.
The Crusaders (1-16-1) were on the
defensive the whole game as Michigan
outshot them by a resounding 46 shots.
Valparaiso managed to get off just two
shots for the game, even though
Michigan only had one defender play-
ing back near the goal while the rest of
the defense played at midfield most of
Even senior Michelle Brach, who
plays defense, almost managed to
record her first goal of the season.
It was so rare to see the ball leave
Valparaiso's side of the field that the
Crusaders had little time or energy to
regroup on offense after fighting off a
barrage of shots.
Even Yogi Berra would agree that
this one was way over before it was

Brach has started all 37 games inher
career as a Wolverine and ends her stay
at defense with a goal and an assist.
Welchans leaves Michigan as the cur-
rent record holder for career (175) and
single-season (85 in 1994) saves.
While varsity soccer is just three
years old at Michigan, both veterans
believe that Michigan is well on its way
to becoming an elite program.
Looking back, Brach feels that the
Wolverines have made giant leaps since
she first arrived.
"I was here for the biggest turning
point in the program:' she said. "When
I first got here it was still a little low
key, and then this year it has picked up
tremendously, and I think it is just going
to pick up from there."
Pressure and expectations too
much for Michigan men's tennis
The Spartans made things difficult for Chris Howard, but the Boilermakers' run defense isn't as formidable.

"We're looking at Purdue as one of
three teams we have to beat to go to the
ose Bowl," tight end Jerame Tuman
Carr, ever the coach, thinks
Michigan needs to do more than sim-
ply come out on top of the game
Saturday. He also believes the
Wolverines are in the right mind-set
for the game.
"I think we have a lot of respect for
Purdue, and I think that's where it has
to begin;' Carr said. "Nothing positive
an happen for us if we don't go down
to Purdue and win, and we have to
improve, not just win."
Go LIONS?: Michigan may play
Penn State in two weeks, but the
Wolverines were definitely pulling for
the Nittany Lions to beat Northwestern
"We were as excited as anyone to
see Penn State beat Northwestern,"

A LITTLE TOO PERSONAL: One thing
arr wasn't happy about following

penalties Michigan took.
He was especially unhappy with the
personal foul assessed to defensive

halt to Michigan State running back

into the Michigan bench.

times," Carr said he would have

Sometimes being No. 1 isn't all it's
cracked up to be. Because often along,
with sitting on top comes a lot of pres-
sure. For the Michigan men's tennis
team, the pressure was too much.
Ranked highest going into the
Division IV Championship, the
Wolverines had very high expectations.
"We came into this championship
with the goal of dominating the other
teams;' Michigan coach Brian Eisner
said. "We played well, but with those
goals, there isn't much margin for
Aside from the disappointment,
Eisner pointed out that the team did
have many bright spots. The brightest
being the play of freshman Matt
Wright, who was unseeded at the tour-
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - After
four overtimes, I II points and 1,254
yards, California's exhausted players
stumbled off the field smiling.
Arizona's players wore grim looks.
The longest game in major college
history ended with a daring gamble
that backfired, giving the Bears a 56-
'55 win Saturday.
"Even though this is a devastating
feeling, someday someone will say
that's the greatest college football
game ever played," said Arizona coach
Dick Tomey, who gambled and lost. "I
guess it's better than both teams walk-
ing off the field talking to them-
The Wildcats had just scored a
touchdown and needed an extra point
to send the game into a fifth overtime.
Tomey went for broke and decided the
game would end right there.
Arizona lined up for the extra point,
but holder Ryan Hesson took the snap
and flipped it over his head to kicker
Matt Peyton, who was tackled immedi-
ately by Andre Rhodes to end the game.
"It took guts," said Arizona quarter-
back Keith Smith, who threw five TD
passes and ran for two more scores.
"We make the play and we all go
nament and upset the top seed, Ben
Gabler of Minnesota.
"Matt played tremendous tennis,"
Eisner said. "I watched the whole
match, and Matt simply out-played him.
Gabler is a senior and is consistently
ranked around 80th in the nation. For
Matt, as a freshman, to beat him is a
fantastic win for himself."
Michigan also received positive play
from junior David Paradzik, who fell in
the quarterfinals to the eventual winner
of his flight. Paradzik was seeded 20th
at the championship.,
"David upset a player seeded higher
than himself to get to the quarters and
lost to a fantastic tennis player in Jakub
Pietrowski," Eisner said.
The winner and runner up in the sin-
gles draw, as well as the winning duo
from the doubles draw, qualified for the
National Indoor Championship in
February. Of those players, none were
"We are obviously very disappoint-
ed," Eisner said. "Myself, and the play-
ers as well, had very high expectations
in ourselves. Maybe they were too high,
but I don't think so. We just didn't
always do the right thing at the right
time and probably lost matches we;
should have won."
Eisner suggests the blame may be
placed on the team's lack of experience
playing in pressure situations. The team
has no seniors on its roster.
"We aren't too experienced, and to
blame it on (lack of experience) may be
unfair but may be true" Eisner said.
"Hopefully everybody learned from
this experience and will take away a lot
from the disappointment."

get out of Irvin's way if he had wanted
"There's no place to go on that side-
line" Carr said. "It's a scary thing as a
coach, because we don't have any ath-
letic ability anymore."
STAN'S THE MAN: Both Tuman and
Campbell credited one person with the
increased role of the tight ends on this
year's team - new quarterback coach
Parrish came to Michigan from
Rutgers where the tight ends were also
an integral part of the offense.
"We knew with coach Parrish com-
ing in a lot of things were going to
change at the tight end position,"
DOUBLE TAKE: Campbell and
Tuman have both been vocal in their
support for Dreisbach this season.
But Campbell couldn't resist taking
one tiny shot at the quarterback for one
With 1:28 left in the first quarter,
Dreisbach had a pass batted back to
him. He caught the ball, and then
attempted to hit receiver Tai Streets
downfield. Dreisbach was penalized
on the play for throwing two forward
passes on one play.
"I don't know, he didn't look very
athletic on that, did he?" Campbell
GAME TIME: Most publications are
listing the starting time for Saturday's
game at 1 p.m., but because the game
will be televised on ESPN2, the game
will likely begin at 12:30 p.m.
