But Illinois coach Ron Turner, also a proponent of
instant replay in college, isn't taking any chances.
"There might be some question in other peoples'
minds about whether or not Duckett will play, but there's
absolutely none in mine," Turner

If only halftime never happened.
Yesterday, the Michigan women's soccer team was
beaten 5-I by Notre Dame, the No. I team in the
country, and the only squad in the NCAA that can
boast a perfect recqrd.
And for the first half, it looked as if the
Wolverines had a chance. They played hard against a
team that was fast and
accurate, a team that did
not know the agony of # NOTRE DAME 5

behind 2-0, a large deficit
for soccer, but a possible score to overcome,
But then came a fateful 20 minute intermission -
a break in the action, and a break somewhere in the
As the Wolverines took the field in the second half,
their performance was as soggy as the grass they
played on and the Irish claimed their pot of gold.
"We pulled it off the first half," Michigan's fresh-
man goaltender Suzie Grech said. "But when we
came out in the second, our play was horrible. We had
defense lapses, our mentality was weak."
Marie Spaccarotella scored the lone Wolverine goal to
make it 4-1 near the end of the game, but Michigan's
chances had long since been washed out.
Michigan (6-3 Big Ten, 8-7 overall) went into the
game with a mentality of "nothing to lose, but every-
thing to gain." But as the players walked off the field,
something had been lost, something that needs to be
found before the post-season.
"We need to focus on individual defense," coach
Debbie Belkin Rademacher said. "We needed to play
our best to have an opporlunity against the best,
against Notre Dame.
"We have to get our game together and beat Butler
(the last game of the regular season this Sunday) and
stay mentally strong going into Big Tens."
The Irish outshot Michigan 11-3, dominating regu-
lar play. But it was their specialized strengths that
"We played to their strengths, they killed us on cor-
ner kicks," Grech said. "We let them win."
"This shouldn't have been a 5-1 game," senior cap-
tain Kacy Beitel said. "We can never go into a game
thinking we can fight back and make up for lost
goals. We have to stay fired up for the full 90 min-
utes, especially against the teams for the rest of the

goals, making Michigan's tally something of ar
As Michigan's goalie, Grech had a unique perspec-
tive on how the game unfolded. When asked what she
believed should be changed in her teams play, she
replied, "Nothing, if you're talking about the first
half. If we would have continued to play with the
intensity on both defense and offense, we might have
had this game.
"Or at least had a chance."
