with a 20-6 Northwestern win.
Though the Wildcats (4-2)
were in possession of the ball
for the majority of the first
half, the Wolverines managed
to break past midfield and take
eight shots on goal. Few of these
shots found the net.
Following the missed
attempts, the Wolverines called

"Northwestern is an
incredibly talented team, so for
us to have that opportunity -
especially on defense, the way
they worked our defense - was
really a great chance for us to
get better," Ulehla said. "We're
making progress, it just takes
time. In our last game, we came
out real flat and were more or
less watching the other team
play as opposed to competing."
The offense, while only
scoring six goals, looked more
engaged and competitive than
it had since its home opener,
committing fewer unforced
turnovers than in previous
games and creating some wide-
open looks in transition. Several
posts and some acrobatic saves
by the Wildcats' goalie kept the
Wolverines from adding a few

"It was similar in the score, but
different because I felt we were
working much better as a team.
I thought the effort was better,"
Ulehla said. "It's about getting a
young group moving forward."
While coaching a first-year
program comprised solely of
freshmen is a rare occurrence,
Ulehla has been through the
situation before. She was an
assistant coach for Florida in its
inaugural2008 season and stayed
there until 2010. The Gators have
since become one of the nation's
top programs, a rise she is hoping
to duplicate at Michigan.
"A lot of what we're going
through right now is what I
went through at Florida," Ulehla
said. "It's a good thing for me
because it keeps me grounded
and reminds me that we're

opportunity to get better. The
