The No. 17 Michigan field
hockey team continued its home-
field dominance this season with
a 7-1 victory over Pacific on Fri-

ing back
from a loss to No. 6 Penn State
in State College last weekend,
the Wolverines returned to
Ann Arbor to defeat the Tigers
to remain unbeaten at home
this season. Michigan created
numerous scoring chances and
carried the majority of posses-
sion throughout the game.
"I was happy with how we
came out, stayed focused and
followed the game plan," said

Michigan coach Marcia Pan-
kratz. "That was really good.
And I think a game like this is
good for younger players to gain
experience."
Sophomore midfielder Axelle
Wouters gave the Wolverines
the early lead, scoring her fourth
goal of the season just over six
minutes into the game. The 1-0
lead would only be temporary,
though. Pacific responded with
a goal of its own just 20 seconds
later to tie the game.
The 1-1 deadlock wasn't indic-
ative of the remainder of the
game, as Michigan took control
of the game and wouldn't relin-
quish it.
Freshman defender Aisling
Naughton scored the second goal
of the game 17:30 into the match
off of an assist from junior for-

ward Michelle Roberts. Shortly
after, Roberts was able to be on
the scoring end of the goal, capi-
talizing on an assist from junior
forward Rachael Mack. Keeping
the pressure on the Tigers, Mack
got agoal of her own, off an assist
from freshman midfielder Taryn
Mark.
The emphasis on fundamen-
tals was a big contributor to
three Michigan goals in under
five minutes.
"We started playing two-
touch hockey and we went back
to basics and simple passes and
the simple ball into space, and
I thought that worked well,"
Naughton said.
Coming out of halftime, the
Wolverines continued to con-
trol the play but were unable to
translate the momentum into

Despite rocky summer, 'M'
ready for blockbuster fall

By PETER DENNIS
For the Daily
For a team that practiced
without a coach all summer, the
Michigan women's swimming
and diving team is doing just fine.
Under normal circumstances,
a team with 10 seniors would be
considered a veteran squad, one
with enough experience to help
the 10 new freshmen. But fol-
lowing the retirement of long-
time women's head coach Jim
Richardson, the team was held
in limbo, balancing its lack of a
coach with the necessity of pre-
paring for its upcoming season.
Mike Bottom, also the men's
swimming and diving coach, was
hired to coach both teams and
juggle the responsibility of both
sides after having led the men's
team for the past four seasons.
"They sat all summer not
knowing who the coach would
be," Bottom said. "But as soon as
the decision was made, they came
right in and gave 100 percent sup-
port behind us, even though we
hadn't hired our staff yet."
With such a large both incom-
ing and outgoing class, the team
really came together as a unit.
"The truth is, they're all fresh-
men to us," Bottom said. "To the
coaching staff, they're all fresh-
men. And that's the exciting thing
- they're all as excited about
coming here as freshmen. Their
eyes are all wide, and whenever
I talk to the group, they're just
EZURIKE

In the ninth minute, she made
a diving save on a long-range
shot. A minute later, Kopmeyer
sprinted off her line to cut down
the angle on a breakaway, forcing
the Nebraska attacker to send a
shot wide. Disappointed with the
effort, Michigan coach Greg Ryan
delivered a stern message to his
team at halftime.

ming in dual meets, you never
know what's going to happen,"
Jaeger said. "In-season swim-
ming is so unpredictable, you
can never be too comfortable
goinginto any race or any meet."
With only eight seniors on
the team, freshmen will look to
juniors such as Jaeger and cap-
tain Jack Lee - who placed first
in both the one- and three-
meter dives - for guidance
and leadership. The fresh-
man class is now the biggest
class on the team, with 14 new
swimmers and one new diver.
"The freshman stepped up
today," Jaeger said. "Two of
them particularly swam really
well: Dylan Bosch and Peter
Brumm. I don't want to just
call those out. I think as a class
they did a great job."
Michigan swimming coach
Mike Bottom agreed that Bosch
is a headlining addition to the
program. Bosch came in first
for the 100-meter fly at 48.92
seconds and the 200-meter fly
at 1:46.77.
On the diving board, fresh-
man Timothy Faerber combated

an injured back.

any goals until Naughton added
another goal off of an assist from
Roberts. Six minutes later, fresh-
man defender Jaime Dean scored
her first collegiate goal off of an
assist from Mark. Rounding out
the scoring for Michigan was
redshirt sophomore defender
Leslie Smith, who scored off of a
penalty stroke.
Given the sizeable lead, the
Wolverines were able to give sev-
eral starters some rest and give
younger players some valuable
epperience.
Pankratz applauded the play-
ers for their concentration in the
-afternoon game after a day of
classes.
"It's not always easy playing
on Friday," said Pankratz. "The
girls have class all day long so
they are racing around, and it's

hard fouls and frequent banter
in the first 15 minutes.
Neither side was able to
generate many quality scoring
chances, as the teams constant-
ly swapped possession through-
out the first half. The lack of
opportunities didn't seem to
faze the Wolverines, though.
"Sometimes you have to feel
it out," said Michigan coach
Chaka Daley. "I think it was
the nerves. In a rivalry game,
everyone is so excited."
Finally, in the 34th minute
Michigan junior midfielder
Ezekiel Harris found the back
of the net with a powerful head-
er off a corner kick from junior
midfielder Fabio Pereira, for his
first goal of the season.-
"Both teams tried to settle in
and once we finally did break
through, I thought it was a good
time for the goal," Daley said.
Five minutes later, the Buck-
eyes had a set play of their own
as senior Austin McAnena lined
up behind the ball. His cross
into Michigan's 18-yard box
found the foot of senior Chris
Hegngi, who struck it home for
the equalizing goal.
The half finished tied ,at
one apiece, as the Buckeyes
regained momentum.
But the Wolverines came out
strong to start the second half,
controlling possession in the
offensive half and constructing
several scoring opportunities.
"I just told them to stay the
course," Daley said. "It's a
major game. Everyone is excit-
ed and we had so much energy
the entire game."
In the 60th minute, Michi-

hard to herd them all in and get
focused for a game. So I was
happy with the way we came out
and stayed focused and followed
the game plan."
Michigan outshot Pacific by
a tally of 31-2 and also led them
in corners, 8-2. The Wolverines
hope Friday's offensive produc-
tion will continue into the rest of
the BigTen schedule.
"(Scoring goals) definitely
boosts our confidence, because
when you see the ball going into
the net, it's so much better than
seeing it go wide," Naughton
said. "And you can actually say
what we're doing in practice
makes it go in."
The Wolverines will have a
week to practice before they take
on conference foe Northwestern
on Oct. 5 at Ocker Field.
gan's effort to begin the second
half fell short, as the Wolver-
ines suffered an own goal as
Harris accidentally kicked the
ball in his own net and put the
Buckeyes in front.
"On a long, precise throw in,
you have to make sure that they
don't win it," Daley said. "We
won it but unfortunately it went
off our guy and into the net."
Directly off the ensuing kick-
off, Michigan responded. Off a
rebound inside the box, Pereira
was there to rifle his team's sec-
ond goal into the bottom left
corner of the net.
"We change the game after
we get scored on," Pereira
said. "We can't just go down
on ourselves. I think the quick
response was why we stuck
with the game."
The Wolverines and the
Buckeyes exchanged fouls and
yellow cards the rest of the
half, but neither side had many
chances.
Michigan controlled the final
20 minutes of the game, leading
up to one of the crazier finishes
in recent memory.
With less than a minute
remaining in the second over
time period, Roberts launched a
ball toward the net. It went in,
right through Ivanov's hands.
It was just like last year, but
the Wolverines were on the
winning side of this extra time
thriller.
Roberts found it difficult to
explain the emotions surround-
ing the victory and his first-
career goal.
"At least in my sports career
this is probably the greatest
feeling ever," Roberts said. "It
can definitely turn our season
around to come back and win
like that."

Junior Angela Chokran took first in two events vs. Wisconsin on Friday.

lapping it up, they want more.
And what a great place to be as a
coach."
By virtue of the vacancy of the
coaching position, the Wolver-
ines were forced to rely on each
other to come together.
"It's definitely nice having that
10 (seniors) and 10 (freshman),"
said freshman. Zoe Mattingly.
"Not only the seniors have been
helping, but every grade has been
helping us out, helpingus prepare
for meets."
With so much of the team hav-
ing experience at higher levels
of competition, including eight
swimmers (three seniors, two
juniors and three freshmen) com-
peting at the U.S. Olympic Tri-
als this summer in Omaha, Neb.,
both the team's freshman and
upperclassman experience shone
though in its win versus Wiscon-
sin on Saturday. Leading only
by one point going into the 200-

yard individual medley, late entry
junior Melissa Lang and fresh-
man Marni Oldershaw followed
up junior Courtney Beidler,
sweeping the event. Michigan's
sweep dealt the Badgers a death
blow.
Freshman Ali DeLoof placed
first in the 100-yard backstroke
and fellow freshman Jessica Wolf
led Wolverine swimmers in the
1,000-yard freestyle. Mattingly
paired with senior Deirdre Jones
to finish second and third respec-
tively in the 200-yard butterfly.
"It was a great opportunity to
be (at the U.S Olympic Trials),"
Mattingly said. "It really shows
you a completely different stage.
It was nice because Michigan
was there as well so I got to be
with them and see how they han-
dled a meet like that. I think it's.
definitely helped me prepare for
meets like this and hopefully the
Big Tens and possibly NCAAs."

"We had to execute better," he ous missed opportunities, Ryan

said.
For the remainder of the game,
the Wolverines did just that.
In the 58th minute, fifth-year
senior midfielder Clare Satchel
got behind the defense for a
breakaway, but Stevens made
a sliding save. Minutes later,
Ezurike pushed the ball past Ste-
vens, but her off-balance effort
was rejected by a defender at the
goal line.
Because of Michigan's numer-

was relieved to escape with a vic-
tory.
"It was a challenging perfor-
mance," he said. "We're going to
keep working on how to break
down teams."
For now, though, Ryan said he
will take the result.
"We got better at breaking
them down over the course of the
game," he said. "I'm pleased that
they dug in and found a way to
win."
