Following a heartbreaking
loss at Wisconsin on Saturday,
the Michigan men's soccer
team traveled to Akron, Ohio
on Tuesday night in search of
its first

But the
road struggles continued for
the Wolverines (1-2-1 Big Ten,
4-6-1 overall), as they fell to
the Zips, 1-0. The Wolverines
were outshot 9-2 and commit-
ted 15 fouls against the crafty
Akron offense.

Rutledge, Racine splitting Robinson, defense

thrash Illinois, 45-0

By LIZ NAGLE

The Michigan hockey team
has four goalies on its roster this
season - a first for coach Red
Berenson.
But when game time arrives,
there can only be one netminder
between the posts.
Last year, then-senior Shawn
Hunwick was the obvious goal-
tender of choice, starting all but
two games for the Wolverines.
In the 2007 and 2009 seasons,
Hunwick saw little ice time- -
in a combined 12 appearances,
he posted 216 saves and an 8-3
record. But in his fifth year, the

"He's a magician."
Denard Robinson was bottled
up, and everyone knew it. But
instead of sliding for a negligible
gain, Robinson cut right, then he
cut left, leaving Illinois freshman
linebacker Mason Monheim flail-
ing at thin air.
Robinson shifted into high
gear and blew past the Fighting
Illini secondary for a 49-yard
touchdown, his third score of the
afternoon.
"He's a magician," Michigan
radio analyst Jim Brandstatter

repeated. "How does he do that in
such tight spaces?
"Just amazing."
Robinson rolled, the defense
held Illinois to 134 total yards and
No. 25 Michigan breezed by the
Fighting Illini, 45-0, on home-
coming at Michigan Stadium.
"It was good to win on home-
coming," said Michigan coach
Brady Hoke. "It's good to win any-
time. This was probably the most
complete game we've played."
The Wolverines got on the
board early and often. Michigan's
first drive took just five plays to
cover 85 yards and send the home
team up 7-0. Robinson found

junior wide receiver Jeremy Gal-
lon on a screen pass to the left,
and Gallon weaved his way to the
end zone behind some impressive
downfield blocking.
Fifth-year senior tight end
Mike Kwiatkowski got a big hug
from Michigan coach Brady Hoke
after laying the definitive block to
spring Gallon.
At the tail end of Michigan's
next drive, the air left the sta-
dium.
A week after injuring his right
wrist in a 44-13 victory over Pur-
due, Robinson got knocked out of
action late in the first quarter of
