Shutouts nice twice for Michigan: Hoosiers, Illini blanked.
By Vaughn R. Kiug
A pertect weekend -that's what the
Michigan soccer team can rightfully
boast of afer shutting out both No. 19
lpdiana and unranked Illinois en route
to a pair of 2-() victories.
Traveling to Champaign for the first
time in prog ram h istory yesterday, the
Wolverines (4-3-1 Hig Ten, 9-3-1 over-
all) boosted their Big Ten record a notch
bove 0- for the first time this season.
Michigan took control of Illinois at
-650L as sophomore Kacy Beitel
notched her second first-half goal in as
With just five minutes remaining in
t he game, junior Emily Schmitt deliv-
ere d th security goal for the
Wolverines, her fourth goal of the sea-
The shutout of Illinois, the
lverines' third in five games, was
atri buted to senior Jessica Jones. She
iuted away all 14 of the Fighting Illini's
shuts on goal.
Friday's blanking of Indiana at
Mvchigan Soccer Field was Michigan's
irst victory against a ranked opponent
The Wolverines set the tone for the
game earlv in the first half. Following a
cisp pass from standout midfielder
Mari Hoff, Beitel sent a blast beyond the
rea ch of the H oosiers' goalkeeper at the
:4:42 mark to put Michigan up 1-0.
"The early goal really gave the team a
sense of confidence that seemed to last
hroughout the entire game," Michigan
coach Debbie Belkin said Friday.
Beitel's goal came on one of 16 shots
the Wolverines sent toward the goal. The
hoosiers' offensive output, on the other
hand, was severely hampered by the
M iehigan defense, which allowed only
eight such shots.e
Denying those eight shots on goal for
the Wolverines was sophomore goal-
keeper Carissa Stewart. The shutout was
Stewart's first of the season.
The Wolverines' defensive effort was
especially commendable because they
silenced the foot of Tracy Grose - one
of the nation's most dangerous for-
Grose, a junior at Indiana, is not only
the current Big Ten player of the week,
but is also ranked third in the conference
in scoring. Her 23 points have her 16th
in the country, based upon her goal-a-
"Our defense does well because we
are very experienced with juniors and
seniors in nearly every position," Belkin
said. "As for stopping Grose, Shannon
(Poole) played really well against her."
The highlight of the game came in the
second half, when junior Amber
Berendowsky scored her 23rd career
goal, tying the Michigan record. Career
goals is the only offensive record which
Berendowsky does not own outright.
Berendowsky's unassisted blast from
thirty yards out soared into the upper
left-hand corner of the goal beyond the
reach of the diving Hoosier goalie.
The cushion goal hit the net 78:54
into the game and seemed to simultane-
ously take all the enthusiasm from
Indiana with it.
"A 1-0 lead is never enough," Belkin
said. "Our second goal really seemed to
take the wind out of their sails.
The victory over Indiana was success
from every angle for the Wolverines and
revealed the potential that lies within the
"That is our kind of game," defensive
standout Vanessa Lewis said. "That
shows how well we can play. We have
had great spurts like that throughout the
season. I only hope we can maintain that
level of intensity for the rest of the sea-

Only one record remains for Berendowsky
Berendowsky could hold as many as six Michigan records - and she's only a junior
By Vaughn R. Klug
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan soccer team clearly has its share
of Big Ten standouts. In highlighting the three ath-
letes that stand out this season, it would be impos-
sible to overlook the brightest star of all -junior
Amber Star Berendowsky.
Yes, "Star' really is her middle name.
With five games remaining in the '98 season
and another entire year of eligibility awaiting
Berendowsky, she already owns every offensive
record at Michigan except one - career goals.
Berendowsky's name rests atop Michigan statis-
tics in points in a season (53), goals in a season
(18), assists in a season (17), career assists (25),
career points (87) and career game-winning goals
Berendowsky's cohort in offensive productivity
is senior forward Jessica Limauro.
Limauro, who has already been honored as Big
Ten offensive player of the week, also holds fifth-
place rankings in three conference categories this
season: scoring (21), goals scored (eight) and
On the defensive front, there is one player
whose dominance draws attention -- Vanessa
Lewis is a no-nonsense player who pays no
mind to big-name players on the opposing team
while leading her defeigse.
The key to her success lies in her defensive
"I pay no attention to who is dribbling the ball;"
Lewis remarks. "My job is simply to shut down
whoever comes before nee."
Lewis does much more than stop defender
She often serves as the first link in offensive
drives while dribbling to widfield and passing to a
Berendowsky, Limauro and Lewis are three key
ingredients to Michigan's success.
