Michigan cringes, and gets its word.
Luckily, it's not grammar school. It's
the NCAA women's soccer Tournament.
And it's the second round, pitting the
Wolverines against the top-ranked Irish,
in South Bend on Sunday.
Nobody said this is going to be easy
for Michigan, who finished as the run-
ner-up in the Big Ten Championship last
Sunday. Receiving an at-large bid for the
NCAA tournament, the Wolverines
squeaked past Miami (Ohio) on
Wednesday, in a 4-3 double-overtime
And now it's Notre Dame, who has
been patiently waiting for an opponent,
resting through the first round.
It's been a big year for the Iris, who
went undefeated (20-0-1) and dominated
the Big East, winning the championship
for the sixth year in a row ---- the sixth
year the team has been a member.

The Wolverines are hoping to

"If we run soli like we've run all

the Wolverines to move on. But this

total of six times all season.
But not all is darkness - there is hope
Out of the half dozen goals that Notre
Dame has allowed, one of them was
scored by a Wolverine, Marie
Spaccarotella, two weeks ago.
The first half of that game yielded
strong play by Michigan, and although
that play dissipated in the second, it
showed the team's potential despite the

Kacy Beitel, team captain and one of
the heroines of the Miami game, agreed
that there is a chance, be it slim.
"We need to capitalize on an early
goal," Beitel said. "Then we need to play
solid, solid defense"
And the defense will revoke around
senior goaltender C 'arrisa Stewart.

season stood as learning ground

that they were the forefathers. They

Stewart, who has played every other
game this year, alternating with Suzie
Grech, won the respect of her coach and
team with her numbers and her presence.
It was this respect that put her in the net
for the postseason.
This will also be the fourth year she
has played in the NCAA 'Ournament.
"The goals that have been scored were
not her fault, but rather had to do with a
defensive breakdown," Rademacher said
