Wesleyan men's soccer starts the season with success
Friday, Sept. 1, the men's soccer team
opened their season with a convincing 5-1 win
over Austin College. The team has retained the
nucleus of players it carried last year while also
adding strength to the squad with the introduc-
Jion of some very capable freshmen.
„ The team made a good start with Dustin
Michalack opening the Ram's account for the
year with the first goal. Ryan Clarkson added to
this positive start by scoring another shortly
before half time.
After the interval, Casey Weil scored a rare
Reader goal, taking the tally to three. Austin
College, trying to bridge the gap, responded with
a goal to reduce the deficit to two.
Wesleyan's forward Weil then took his per-
sonal tally to two for the afternoon when scoring
more conventionally off the ground. With the
Victory an almost certainty, Robert Schindlbeck
added to the final score with a well-taken goal.
He stuck it on the half volley from twelve yards
out, giving the keeper no chance.
This completed a successful afternoon for the
men's team and gave headcoach Kenny Medina
a great deal to be pleased about.
"This is the most encouraging team 1 have
seen for a while," he said. "Collectively, the
whole team has improved, as well as individual
members. I hope this experience of the senior
team players will rub off on the freshman as the
The following day, the team once again was
on the l iad. This time the destination was Piano,
for a match against Southwestern Oklahoma.
This opposition proved to be far stronger.
Despite Wesleyan's efforts, they could not avoid
falling behind 1-0 before half time.
In the second half the team showed their
ability to dig deep and fight back, as once again
it was a close match.
Freshman left back, Kelsie Barnes entered
the frame to score his first of the year to tie the
game at 1 -1.
With both sides pushing for the win, it was
Wesleyan who emerged victorious with
Schindlbeck scoring the winning goal. The 2-1
victory took the men's team to 2-0 for the sea-
Coach Medina was again impressed with his
"We showed that our team, as well as having
talent, can also fight hard and emerge on top. The
match got scrappy and we responded in a very
positive manner," he said.
Barnes was also excited about the team's
prospects for the year.
"We've made a really confident start. I hope
we can build on this and continue to play and
improve as a team," he said. "Our goal is obvi-
ously the NCAA tournament and I think we have
the players to get there."
The Ram's next opponents are West Texas
A&M on Friday, followed by TCU on Tuesday.

The concussion that
cowered the Cowboys
I am the Elfin King, Rufinicus.

dom from the depths of Elfin Land

course is all in
exactly what I
have in com-
Sunday's loss ———
to the Philadelphia Eagles. 1 can't
imagine him thinking anymore
clearly than I am.
This really should mark the end
of the Aikman era. You'd think that
three Superbowl trophies, numerous
pro bowl appearances and millions
of dollars would cause Aikman to
pack up and ride off into the sunset.
But this will not be the case.
He continues to come back from
one life changing concussion after
another in hopes of regaining the
glory he once relished.
Even cats only have nine lives,
and if you're keeping count,
Aikman just had his ninth concus-
sion. Pretty soon he'll be the
Humpty Dumpty of the NFL, with a
brain so scrambled that it resembles
It's not as if the only bad news
came in the way of Troy's melon
problems. Joey Galloway, the
Cowboys $42 million off-season
acquisition, was lost for the year as
Those are two of the biggest
components of what was to be this
season's offensive turn around. I'm
a huge Cowboy optimist, but these
disasters have left me hoping for an
I didn't even mention that the
Cowboy defense really didn't catch
on to the "bend, don't break" phi-
losophy that was supposedly going
to be their trademark this season.
Having 41 points dropped on
you by a meager Philadelphia
offense was sickening.
Where to go from here? I'm not
even sure about that one. Randall
Cunningham is an option, but he's
currently suffering from a sprained
thumb that will leave him question-
able for the Arizona Cardinals
As a football fan, I'm sickened
by it all. There's nothing like seeing
possibly one of the best offenses
destroyed after one weekend.
Just think. The Cowboys could
start 3rd string quarterback and for-
mer practice squad member Clint
Stoerner this weekend in hopes of
keeping them from starting off 0-2.
Good luck. Nothing like the
beauty of a rookie quarterback start-
ing in the NFL, let alone one that
went undrafted and has, at times,
looked a bit bewildered by 3rd team
defenses during the preseason.
It may not get much better. If
this season goes down the tubes in
the first few weeks, it could be a
sign of rebuilding to corne. But
without a 1st round pick in next
year's draft, the Cowboys will be
hard-pressed to reload with quality
It's hard to imagine them recre-
ating the magic of the '89, '90, and
'91 drafts in which the first round
picks included Michael Irvin, Troy
Aikman, and Emmitt Smith.
Drafting three Hall Of Fame
quality players in successive years
is a marvel that is rarely done.
I'm not pushing the panic but-
ton yet, but my finger is hovering
Even if the Cowboys
don't make the playoffs. I'll consid-
er the season a success if they keep
the Washington Redskins from get-
ting home-field advantage.
