Three Goals. With all the strategy
and planning that goes into a soccer
game, it's hard to believe that suc-
cess for the Wolverines lies in their
ability to simply put the ball in the
net three times.
Since the program's inception,
Michigan is a perfect 6-0 when scoring
three or more goals. But in the lower-
scoring game that is soc-
cer, this is easier said than
done for the Maize and
Blue - or is it? PROv

But two tough Ivy-League oppo-
nents this weekend hope to quickly
change that in the Brown Invitational.
Tonight the Wolverines kick off the
tournament against the "homers," the
Brown Bears. Coming off a 7-7-2
record last year, and a share of the Ivy-
League title for the second consecutive
season, the Bears look like a formida-
ble opponent for the Wolverines.
This team is loaded with talent and
returns four All-Ivy performers from
2001. But since the Ivy League limits
its teams to 15 games a year (as
opposed to the NCAA's limit of 20),
this is Brown's first contest of 2002.
"Brown hasn't been tested yet, so.
I think they have a lot of questions,"
Michigan coach Steve Burns said.
"We have to jump on them early,
and if we do, it will be a much easi-
er 90 minutes."
After a day's rest, Michigan will
face off Sunday against a solid Yale
team knee-deep in experience. The
Bulldogs not only boast seven sen-
iors, but also return 10 starters from
last year's team.
Yale's key player is junior keeper
Russ Stroud, who possessed a 1.02
GAA last season, and will attempt to
slow down Michigan's prolific
offense. This is also
Yale's first game of the

Michigan's offense will be led this
weekend by Cameron, Bruh, and
Mychal Turpin, who shredded the
IUPUI defense last week with a first-
half hat trick. Junior Mike White has
also showed supreme offensive abili-
ty, and should be an integral part of
the Wolverine scoring attack.
On the defensive side of the ball,
Michigan boasts a trio of talented jun-
iors in Joe Iding, Kevin Taylor, and
keeper Joe Zawacki. After surrender-
ing five goals the season-opener
against California-Santa Barbara,
Zawacki has excelled in the last two
games in allowing just one goal.
"We've had a real strong week of
practice, and the team is appearing as if
they expect big things from this week-
end," Burns said. "I think the key for us
is to take that preparation and put it in
place in the pressure-filled game."
