Referee Tony Molina is probably out of
breath after Saturday night's exhibition game at
Yost Ice Arena.
What was thought of as a friendly exhibition
game for the Michi-

got ugly real quickly

A total of 38 penalties were served for over 90
minutes in the box, which made for a heavily

Senior Josh Langfeld got on the scoring track
with a backhand goal Saturday.
Recently just to score against the
Michigan field hockey team has been a
moral victory for opponents.
The fourth-ranked Wolverines (3-0
Big Ten, 12-1 overall) blanked Iowa, 4-
0, Friday and then finished off noncon-
ference foes Southwest Missouri, 4-1,
the next day. Both games took place at
Grant Field, the Hawkeyes home field.
Michigan has only given up two
goals in its past five games. Even more
impressive for the defense is it hasn't
allowed more than five shots on goal
per game in its past seven competitions.
"It's a testament to the overall
defense of the team from the forwards
down to the defense," Michigan coach
"There are a bunch of us that play
forward," senior co-captain Regan
Wulfsberg said. "On any given day, one
of us can step it up."
The deep roster means that someone
will be open for goals.
"If people start to key in on one par-
ticular person, someone else will pick
up the load," Pankratz said. "That's
great for us because we're very versatile
Wulfsberg had two goals against
Southwest Missouri. But this time the
other co-captain Kelli Gannon started
the offense for Michigan with a penalty
shot at 12:57. She added two assists to
raise her all-time point tally to 112, sec-
ond on Michigan's all-time list.
Junior goalie Maureen Tasch faced
only four shots, but still got a little help

we feel we can't beat them by enough. We'd like
to go out there and beat them by 10, but we got
some good shots on their goalie and I think we
got some valuable experience tonight."
It could have been much worse than a 10-goal
cushion for the Wolverines, as they dominated
Wilfred Laurier in all facets of the game - pep-
