corner kick sailed long, it was headed
back into the box and Turpin found him-
self in the right place at the right time.
He got his head on the ball and sent it
toward the goal line, but a swarm of
opposing defender's cleared the shot.
"The ball was right there, and I had the
chance," Turpin said. "We had a lot of
chances and took it to them all night, we
just weren't able to finish"

Finally, with 1:16 remaitning,
Robinson cauht hthe Western Mici 'an
defense sleeping. On a direct kick lie
beat Smith on a shot to the near post.
The game headed to overtime and
after 19:34 of play Michigan put the
game away. Freshman Tom Gritter snuck
a shot under the diving goalkeeper's arm.
"The ball sailed over the defenders
head and came down right on my foot. I
just concentrated on putting the ball in
the back of the net," Gritter said. "It
makes for a great win."

Michigan had It corner kicks.
Finally, with five minutes left in the
I-I tie, Wilson beat Oakland goalkeep-
er Sarah Buckland to the right corner
of the goal, giving Michigan a 2-I lead.
The tie-breaking goal was Wilson's
second of the day.
With Oakland desperately trying to
tie the game with five minutes left,
Michigan's dynamic offense struck
again. Only 22 seconds after Wilson's
goal, forward Abby Crumpton accept-
ed a Stephanie Chavez feed and rifled a
shot past Buckland for Michigan's
clinching goal.
For Michigan, the nail-biter was not
totally unexpected. The Wolverines had

not experienced much success outside
of conference play, going 2-3.
"We knew Oakland would come out
hard," Rademacher said. "Our non-
conference games are key."
Sunday, Michigan takes on its sec-
ond intrastate rival, Michigan State (2-
2-1 Big Ten, 7-2-2 overall). The
Wolverines sit one game behind first

Despite the enormity of the Oct. 13
showdown with No. 6 Penn State, the
Wolverines are savvy enough not to
overlook a fired-up rival in Michigan
"The Penn State game will definite-
ly be a big game, but if we lose to
Michigan State, it's not going to mat-
ter," Wilson said.
