Other miscellaneous factors:
Penn State’s kicking game has been
in a season-long rut as Massimo
Manca has hit on only three of nine
field goal attempts while the Tide’s
Van Tiffin has been nearly perfect
hitting on nine of 10.
The Lions have never beaten Ala
bama in the Tide’s home state in
two tries. As a matter of fact, no
body’s beaten Alabama at Bryant-
Denny Stadium since Vanderbilt
did it Sept. 29,1984.
Penn State hasn’t even played on
the road since Boston College
Sept. 20. Just to be safe, the Lions
are preparing for both the Tide and
the crowd.

on the (practice) field today and

Paterno said Wednesday. “We

Booters face Notre Dame in must-win game
Collegian Sports Writer
If ever there was a time to watch a
soccer game, that time is now. The
Lions’ regular season is nearing its
end and each of the five games re
maining is crucial.
Crucial games mean hard, enthu
siastic play and Notre Dame is just
the team to ignite that fire in the
Lions. Penn State matches up against
the Fighting Irish tonight at 7:15 at
Jeffrey Field.
Notre Dame has a growing soccer
program which has really taken off in
the past five years. The school recent
ly hired a new coach, Dennis Grace,
who has extensively recruited both
American and international players.
“This year they’re starting to make
a name for themselves,” said Head
Coach Walter Bahr. “They knocked
off Conneticut and tied Akron, two
teams usually in the national rank
ings. They have an aggressive team.
They are coming in here with a good
reputation and we expect to have our
hands full.”
Assistant Coach Barry Gorman,
referring to the Lions’ inconsistent
play this season, said Penn Stale is
i capable of rising to Notre Dame’s
challenge if the right Penn State team
shows up to play.
“There are three teams and we
don’t know which one is going to show
up,” Gorman said. “The team that
played against Hartwick (a 3-2 Penn
State win), the team that plays in
patches and the team that stands
around and spectates. We’re hoping
the team from (the) Hartwick
(game) will reemerge and play for
the next number of games.”
Neither coach was pleased with the
team’s performance Tuesday in the
Lions’ 3-1 win over Delaware. At this

Lady spikers travel
to face A-10 foes
Collegian Sports Writer
The No. 15 women’s volleyball
team will put its 16-match winning
streak and unblemished Atlantic
10 record on the line this weekend
as the Lady Lions travel to New
England to take on Massachusetts
tonight and Rhode Island tomor
row evening.
The inconsistencies which
plagued the Lady Lions for the
better part of the season seem
ingly have vanished. Although
they did struggle a little in their
four-game defeat of Kentucky last
Saturday, the Lady Lions came
back Sunday to play what Head
Coach Russ Rose called “the best
match of this year” in white-wash
ing rival Pittsburgh.
Co-captain Ellen Hensler attrib

over the course of the year to
"I think we’re playing more as a
team,” she said. “We are really
playing well together.”

ankle in the victory over West
Virginia last weekend, is off her
crutches and is expected to be

Samantha Johns will be again
called upon to fill Pilecki’s shoes.

“Sam’s doing really well,” As
sistant Coach Lori Rose said.
“She’s a back row player, but
when we called on her to hit she
was tough.
“She plays great defense, and is
a great passer and server. When
you have those things the blocking
and hitting come around.”
As the regular season winds
down for the Lady Lions, their
confidence level is gaining steam.
They are cruising by teams they
normally have no trouble with,
and playing a you-come-and-get
me game with their A-10 rivals. In
fact, the Lady Lions have never
