Continued from Page 11
With Michigan consistently attacking
during the third period and the entire
five-minute overtime, the ice became a
bit chippy and rough in the Red Raiders'
zone. Snow buildup around the crease
gave Lefevre an advantage, because it
inhibited the Wolverine snipers from
cleanly deking and making their best
moves on the Colgate netminder.
Lefevre still had to contain Michigan's
top scorers, trying to execute their best
moves in five penalty shots in order to
advance to the title game - with the only
ones on the ice being a Wolverine,
Lefevre and his father's memory.
The Red Raiders goalie proved up to
the challenge, shutting out all five of
Michigan's shooters, including Andy
Hilbert and Mike Cammalleri.
"That's probably up there with one of
the greatest moments I've had," said
Lefevre. "It was a great feeling to take a
win from them."
It was especially redeeming for
Lefevre and the Red Raiders, since
Michigan ended their season in an over-
time thriller at last year's NCAAs.
Lefevre wasn't the starting goalie then.
He split duties with Shep Harder, who
graduated this past spring as Colgate's
all-time leader in shutouts and goals
But it is now Lefevre s team, as he
takes the prmarv responsibiity as start-
ing goaltender for the No. 16 Red
Raiders - and he doesn't mind the
added pressure that comes with it.
"I think I'm more confident in myself
now that I'm the guy' Lefcevre said. "It
makes me step it up a little more.
And it helps that he knows he'll never
be alone on the ice.
"My dad's in my heart right now,"
Lefevre said. "He never missed a game
and still will never miss a game."
Colgate goalie Jason Lefevre stoned all five Michigan's players in last Friday's shootout, including center Mike Cammalleri.

For the Daily
The Michigan field hockey team's
win Saturday against Central Michigan
was not your ordinary Michigan victo-
ries. True, the Wolverines did trample
the Chippewas, 8-0, but it was hardly
just another blowout.
The game began with a strong
Michigan drive, three of the goals were
scored within the first 10 minutes. After
that, the goals started coming sporadi-
cally after missed penalty corners.
To make up for the lack of excitement
on the field, plenty of distractions were
provided on the sidelines.
Halfway through the second half, sev-
eral of the sprinklers around Ocker Field
suddenly began spouting water every-
where, completely drenching the
Michigan bench. The field trainer forgot
that there was a came scheduled for
Saturday, so he accidentally pro-
grammed the sprinklers to go off during
the game. The few sprinklers near the
bleachers were soon shut off but the one
near the Michigan bench flowed through
the rest of the half. The players and
coaches had to stifle the water with sev-
eral ball buckets nearby, holding down
the buckets over the sprinkler. Players on
the field had to ignore the antics on the
sidelines to focus on continuing the
"We just kept telling ourselves that it
was only raining," freshman Molly
Soon after the sprinklers went off it
started to snow, startling to some, but not
to others. Young childen in the stands
started cheering, everyone else started
Along with the groans and moans
from the bleachers came a couple of
injuries on the playing field. Freshman
April Fronzoni got hit in the leg during a
penalty corner and had to be helped off
the field. And sophomore Krista
Meckley was also injured during a
The most horrific injury, however,
occurred to Central Michigan defender
Katrina Wozneck during yet another
penalty corner. She was struck in the
head when a shot by Freshman Kristi
Gannon deflected off a stick in the cir-
cle. She fell immediately and had to be
carried off the field by her coach and
"I feel really awful about that horrible
injury happening to the Central
Michigan team," Michigan coach
Marcia Pankratz said. "It couldn't have
