Goalies splitting time for field hockey
By Benjamin Singer
Daily Sports Writer
The graduation of goaltender Kati Oakes
has left Michigan's field hockey net wide
With Oakes forgoing her final year of cli-
gibility, Michigan coach Marcia Pankratz
has decided that for now, two heads are bet-
ter than one.
Junior Maureen Tasch and freshman
Molly Maloney have been alternating starts
for the first six games.
"Mo started the season, then Molly played
the next game, then they've just been rotat-
ing starts," Pankratz said. "It's already pre-
determined and it's a team unified effort
Maloney is 3-0 and Tasch is 2-1 with her
one loss coming against No. 3 North
"It was our strongest opponent, and the
played well," Pankratz said.
In her two years of backing up Oakes,
Tasch had a goals against average of 0.68 in
eight games with a 2-0 record. Maloney is a
two-time All-State First-Team goalie from
Lake Forest High School in Illinois. She was
in the net for 20 shutouts and a microscopic
0.047 goals against average last year.
"They're both really good goalkeepers."
Pankratz said. "They're splitting time
because they both can contribute to the
Maloney's appreciation for her starts
show that she does not take her playing time
"I'm pleased as a freshman to get any
time that I can," Maloney said. "I'm glad to
be sharing time with Mo. I think she's a
great goalie and I love working with her on
a daily basis"
Although the time in the net has been
evenly split so far, there is a chance that
later on in the year one goalie will emerge
as the lone successor to Oakes.
"This is our tactic so far and we'll just
have to see how the rest of the season pans
out, Pankratz said. "It's impossible really to
With a tough conference schedule, the
Wolverines may need a familiar formula day
in and day out.
"I think once the Big Ten season starts
we'll look for a little more consistency back
there," Tasch said. "I think somebody is
going to step up and take it."
However, Pankratz does not appear to
have any sense of urgency in finding just
"They both have their strengths,"
Pankratz said. "There's really no controver-
Pankratz has been taking advantage of
these early games by trying to see what
forumla works best in net for her team
whether it be choosing one goalie or letting
the two alternate for the rest of the year.
Even after six games, she still does not seem
to favor one over the other.
"If someone eels hurt. that will change
the decision a lot," Pankratz said.

Gannon moved into third place all-time on
the Wolverines career point list. Her three
goals and two assists in two'games brought
her to a total of 95 points passing Kay

of six games with at least one point.

Redskins lose Westbro(
for rest of season
ASHBURN, Virginia - The
Super Bowl aspirations of the
Washington Redskins took a major
hit today when the club learned top
receiver Michael Westbrook will
miss the remainder of the season
with a torn left ACL.
Westbrook suffered the injt'
after twisting his knee followin
third-quarter catch in Sunday's 15-
10 loss to the Detroit Lions. He
had four receptions for 50 yards in
After four disappointing seasons
since being drafted fourth overall
in 1995, Westbrook, 28, enjoyed a
career year last season.
He was the Redskins' main deep
threat and established career highs
with 65 receptions for 1,191 ya
and nine touchdowns.
Pacers interested in
hiring coach Knight
Indiana Pacers basketball coach
Isiah Thotsas has reportedly stated
that he would like former Indiana bas-
ketball coach Bob Knight to join him
on the Pacers' bench.
Thomas told WDFN Radio yes-
day that he would like to hire Knight,
who was fired by Indiana on Sunday
after 29 years at the school that saw
him win three NCAA championships
- one of which with Thomas as a
sophomore in 1981.
Thomas told reporters at his charity
golf tournament that Knight was wel-
come on his bench anytime and hoped
that he could serve the same type of
mentor/apprentice role that Tex Wi@
did with Phil Jackson in Chicago.
