Smith win's 3-0, ends field hockey season


Sports Update





The field hockey team's season ended last Thursday as Smith College defeated the Engineers in the opening round of the New England Women's Eight Conference championships. The Pioneers scored a 3-0 win over MIT at Smith.

MIT captain Karlin Anderson '91 described her team's play as flat during the first half, as Smith controlled the pace of the game, and scored twice.

During the second half, the Engineers played much better than during the first, and penetrated the Smith defense, although they could not score.

Smith, the tournament's second-seeded team, defeated Babson College in the semifinal game on Saturday at MIT, and was to meet Worcester Polytechnic Institute Sunday in the final. That game, however, had to be postponed, after one referee failed to appear, and a replacement could not be found.

football, 30-7[cp12]

The football team dropped to 1-5 with a 20-7 loss Saturday

to Stonehill College. Stonehill scored only 2 minutes, 17 seconds into the first quarter, and never looked back. MIT's John Hur '93 connected on a 28-yard scoring pass to Rod Tranum '93 with no time left in the game for the Beavers' only score.

Stonehill outgained MIT, 205 yards to 151 on the ground and 171 yards to 133 in the air, although statistical advantage was indicative of the final score.

Hur completed nine of 33 passes for MIT's 133 yards, while Tranum led all MIT receivers with five catches, for 68 yards.

Justin Glotfelty '92 led the defense with 15 tackles (10 solo), and inside linebacker Darcy Prather '91 added eight tackles. Prather's four solo tackles put his season total at 41 after six games, breaking the MIT record for single-season solo tackles, which Prather had set last year, when

he had 39 solo tackles in eight games.

Andreas Lewin '91 and his sister, Paula '93, recorded a successful sailing weekend, as Paula won the A Division of the Victoria Urn competition, and thus qualified for the Atlantic Coast Championships, to be held at Yale University on Nov. 10 and 11. She became the first MIT woman to qualify for this competition.

Andreas took second in last weekend's Schell Trophy, sailing on the Charles River. Andreas, who skippered, was joined by Jen Schussel '94 on Saturday, and Mike Binnard '92 on Sunday.
