Blue blanks Ball State
for fourth straight win

The No. 13 Michigan field hockey
team attained revenge yesterday in
Muncie, Ind., blanking Ball State 1-0.
The Wolverines (6-2 overall) have now
won four consecutive contests. More-
over, all scores have been by shutout.
Michigan anticipated a slower game
because the Cardinals play on grass, but
found the playing surface to be just a
minor detail. After some adjusting and
some sluggish play at first, the team had
little problems and was soon control-
ling both ends of the field.
Senior forward Aaleya Koreishi
scored the only goal of the game, unas-
sisted, at 3:51 of the second half.
The Wolverines appeared sluggish
in the ongoing, possibly due to the field,
and found Ball State attempting a total
of five shots in the first half, keeping
senior goaltender Rachael Geisthardt
on the defensive. Michigan gave
Geisthardt little support, struggling to
find scoring opportunities. The Wol-
verines attempted only one shot in the
However, with Koreishi's goal in the
early moments ofthe second half, Michi-
gan thrived on the co-captain's mo-
mentum and easily shutdown the weak
offense of the Cardinals.
The Wolverines managed only one
shot in the first half, but with the
backing of Koreishi's goal, they kept
Ball State in check for the rest of the
contest. Michigan took advantage of
more shot opportunities in the latter
half, amassing a game total of 11. The
Cardinals could muster only one shot
of its own in the crunch, leading to
Geisthardt knocked away four Ball
State shots, all in the first half, and
then watched Koreishi pound Cardi-
nal goalie Andrea Adams for another
four shots. Koreishi led the Wolvet-
ine attack with five shots, while sophQ-t
more Meredith Weinstein had two.
Four other Michigan players rounded'
out the shooting.

themselves in the middle of a seven

The Michigan football team can play
couch potatoes Saturday.
While the Wolverines are relaxing, the
10 remaining teams in the conference are
in action this weekend. If the pattern of
this season continues, blowouts and nail-
biters should prevail Saturday.
The elite of the conference, Penn State
andOhio State,can already markthe"W"
on its schedule. Which team decides to
run up the score is the game within the
game. The Buckeyes and Nittany Lions
will do whateverthey can injockeying for

Carolina in Chapel Hill made it seem that
it could be a special season for the Or-

on a late Pirate touchdown must confuse
the fans even more.

with its offensive balance, but Syracuse

conference games at home.

Illinois doesn't need the advice from
Syracuse on how to play East Carolina.
The Illini know what to expect. In the
1994 Liberty Bowl, Illinois blasted the
Pirates, 30-0. Johnny Johnson com-
pleted 18-of-30 pass attempts for 250
yards and four touchdowns. Heisman
hopeful and Butkus candidate Simeon
Rice didn't even have a sack. This time,
the Illini welcome the Pirates to
Illinois eked out a 9-7 victory over
Arizona last week, thanks to Rice. The
senior linebacker tallied 3.5 sacks,
breaking the conference career sacks
record. Rice now has 39.5 career sacks
in 38 games, passing Michigan's Mark
Messner's total of 36 career sacks.
There are two keys to the game. If
Johnson can regain the touch he had in
the 1994 Liberty Bowl, the Illini should
roll. If not, Illinois may have to rely on
its defense once again. And if the Illini
secondary can contain the Pirate pass-
ing game, its an easy win.
