EAST LANSING - Although t
offense received the glory in the No. 12
Michigan field hockey team's 1-0 victo-
ry over the l1th-ranked Spartans last
night, it was the defense that kept the
The Michigan defense was the first to
hold Michigan State's offense scoreless
this season, limiting the Spartans to only
one shot on goal. A defensive stand in
the last minute of regulation sealed
Michigan's victory, preventing t
Spartans from capitalizing on two penW
ty corners that could have tied the score
and sent the game to overtime.
"Our defensive strategy was just to
play our game, work with each other,
really communicate, just let the ball do
the work, and keep it to the outside,"
said senior captain Ashley Reichenbach,
a stalwart of the Michigan defense.
"That was the main point - to keep it to
the outside, because their main stren
was in the center. We just stuck toW
game plan and it worked."
Although the Spartans' last-minute
scoring opportunities added extra drama
to the game, the Michigan defenders
knew they could handle the situation.
"It was pretty scary" sophomore
Catherine Foreman said, "but we had
confidence we would get them out and
luckily, we did."
Despite not seeing much action dur-
ing the majority of the match, ju
goalkeeper Kati Oakes maintained er
focus and came through when the team
needed her most.
"Today, the rest of the team was teally
high."Oakes said, "Michigan State had a
lot of fans out there. I didn't have too
much trouble"maintaining intensity.
A major factor in Michigan's defen-
sive successes all year has been the
experience of the unit. Led by
Reichenbach, Foreman and Oakes,
Wolverines refuse to be intimidated by
any offense they face.
"I think that our defense is very expe-
rienced, very smart," Michigan coach
Marcia Pankratz said. "I think that they
know to do the right thing."
This could be c1ucial as Michigan
continues conference play and faces
some of the country's elite teams.
"This is exactly what we need to go
into the Big Ten season," ReichenIlti
said. "We're just going to ride the
and keep on going."

did tonight, we'll do quite well."
