the-charges. However, when Indiana's Billy Weav-
er corralled a rebound in front of the Michigan
goal, there was nothing Sperry could do. Weaver
was just feet away, with plenty of time to calculate
how far he needed to boot the ball to keep it out of
the goalie's reach.
Fifteen minutes later, junior forward Jake Stacy
took a free kick and sent the ball arcing softly into
a crowd in front of the goal, landing at Quijano's
feet. Quijano booted it in to tie the game at 1-1.
But Quijano was sent off after he and an Indi-
ana forward tangled up and fell in front of the
Michigan goal, fewer than five minutes into the
second half. Neither player seemed to have bla-
tantly fouled the other, but the referee felt Qui-
jano was to blame. Soon after, Indiana (1-0-0 Big
Ten, 5-3-1 overall) scored its second goal to take

forward Peri Marosevic didn't stop giving the
Indiana defense fits with his gritty play - even
after receiving a boot to the face.
"I think that it was aboutthe 53rd minute, after
(Indiana) scored, that heart really took over,"
Michigan coach Steve Burns said. "It's tough to
see where the mind and body end and where heart
takes over, but certainly after they scored, you
saw a willingness from our team to really get after
them and not be defined by one call in a game."
In the 75th minute, junior defender and tri-
captain Michael Holody pulled Michigan even for
the second time, redirecting a corner from Stacy
to the back of the net. Sperry held off a flurry of
chances as regulation wound down, but he could
not stop the crucial golden goal in overtime.
Heading to South Bend to play Notre Dame,
the Wolverines will face a true test of their char-
acter. Up to this point, Michigan has enjoyed its
best start ever - now the team will see if it has the
ability to rebound from a heartbreaking loss.
"Before the season, we came up with obstacles
we might face, and bouncing back is one of the
things we talked about," Carter said. "We're ready
for it - it's not going to faze us. ... We're going to
win the next eight games, so I'm not really wor-
ried about it."
Pat White looked injury-prone and frail while Steve
Slaton ran backwards more than forwards on most
And following Slaton's lead, the team's National
Title hopes took a huge step backward, too.

Oklahoma Sooners - Oklahoma appeared to
have everything. A stud freshman quarterback, a
favorable schedule in a weak conference and a we-
can't-be-beat swagger that developed with a bunch
of 50-plus point wins.
Apparently, the Sooners didn't have everything.
They didn't have what it took to beat a lowly Colo-
rado team in Boulder.
And nowthey probably don't have somethingelse:
a legitimate shot at a National Championship bid it
seemed destined for just a week ago.
Congratulations, Sooners fans. Your life sucks the

The No. 8 Michigan field hockey
team had a successful weekend,
sweeping two Ohio schools. Yes-
terday, the Wolverines defeated
Miami (Ohio), 4-2, two days after
emerging victorious in a 3-2 over-
time thriller against Ohio State.
Against the Redhawks (4-7),
Michigan couldn't capitalize on
early opportunities to score and
trailed by one following a Miami
goal 20 minutes into the first half.
But after two failed penalty cor-
ners, junior Stephanie Hoyer tied
the game before halftime with an
unassisted drive into the circle and
an impressive backhand shot at
Early in the second half, senior
Ashley Lennington scored her fifth
goal of the season after a scramble
in front of Miami's net. Eight min-
utes later, senior captain Lucia
Belassi tallied Michigan's third
unanswered goal with a perfect
shot off of a penalty corner.
Following the Wolverines' (3-0
Big Ten, 8-4 overall) fourth goal
of the game, the Redhawks pulled
starting goalie Megan Stengel,
who had made just one save all day.
Michigan sophomore goalkeeper
Paige Pickett had a strong outing on
Friday, allowing just two goals and
making four saves.
"(It was) great that four different
players got goals," Michigan coach
Nancy Cox said. "(The team) has
depth for the future."
Belassi said the team came out
flatly against Miami, but the Wol-
verines did the opposite against
Ohio State (5-7,1-1) on Friday. Mich-

31-29. The Hawkeyes took games
three and four then (30-26, 30-28).
Facing a potential defeat, the
Wolverines found themselves
gridlocked at 5-5 in game five. But
Junior Stephanie Hoyer pushes the ball up field during Michigan's two-win weekend in
which the Wolverines defeated Ohio State and Miami (OH).

igan took a 2-i lead at the end of the
first half, but let the Buckeyes tie it
up in the second. The game went
into overtime - Michigan's third
of the season - and it was Belassi
that came up with the winning goal
after an assist from sophomore
Paige Laytos at the 71:40 mark.
Michigan's unforced errors helped
Iowa finish the match 15-10, as the
Hawkeyes defeated the Wolverines
for the first time in the last 11 meet-
Although Karpiak recorded
a career-high 19 kills and fresh-
man setter Lexi Zimmerman had
a career-best 21 digs, the most
impressive statistic belonged to an
Cox credited the team's resil-
ience and versatility for its over-
time victory, but both Cox and
Belassi made it clear that in order
to beat rival Michigan State next
week, the Wolverines will need to
play at their highest level for all 70
Iowa defense that recorded a star-
tling 16.5 blocks.
"They're a very good blocking
team. They are a big physical team,"
Rosen said. "But our attackers could
have done a better job."
Next weekend, Michigan squares
off against Michigan State and
Northwestern and will try to earn
its first win since Sept. 21.
