24 - CAPE GAZETTE, Tuesday, Jan. 4 - Jan. 6, 2005 Ball doesn't drop as St. Augustine escapes from Cape 67-66 By Dave Frederick St. Augustine coach Paul Rodeo sat back next to his fouled out star Antho- ny Farmer and watched his team head- ing for the last roundup. Cape's Kyle White, already with a monster game of 34 points in his hip pocket, seemed certain to lasso a victo- ry tor Cape as the Vikings trailed by one with 10 seconds remaining. "We had the right guy in the right situation going to his right for hi; "Bogart'" move," Cape coach Dwight Tingle said after the game. 'TII take that situation every time." White froze his defender moving the ball from his left to right and back again before taking off down the lane. "I had what I wanted. I had the look. I think I took off too soon and was a lit- tle too far out. The ball just rolled off the front of the rim. I can't believe I missed it," said White as the Vikings fell to the New Jersey school 67-66. St. Augustine, a regular participant in the Slam Dunk tournament, found themselves in Lewes agldn for Christ- mas. "The difference this year is we had to pay for the ferry ride," coach Rodeo said. "Listen, Cape has a good ball club and that No. 21 [Kyle White] is a very special player. We are a young team except for Farmer and the pres- sure really hurt us." What also hurt Cape was lack of di- versification in their scoring attack. White with 34 and Ray Jackson's 13 accounted for 47 of the team's 66 points. "Chris Donges had a big basket and some big rebounds coming down the stretch," Tingle said. "We obviously need our big men to develop." White's 16 and Farmer's 15 points were lighting up the house in the first half as St. Augustine led 35-34. Cape started to slip away in the sec- ond half and trailed 59-50 with 4:37 left in the game. A three-pointer from Donges and a put back by Andrew Edwards along with more White heroics brought the Vikings back to even at 66-66 with ! 0 seconds remaining. St. Augustine con- verted one of two from the free.throw line putting the ball in White's hands for the final shot. "You can be the underdog in a game, but 5'ou can still fight," White said. "Everybody thought we would get blown out tonight, but we should have won the game. This will help us when we get back to our regular schedule." Farmer, on his way to Rutgers on a Division I scholarship, fininshed the game with 20 points. Cape returns to the floor after winter break with a Jan. 4 home game versus Sussex Central before traveling to Cae- sar Rodney Jan. 6 then hosting Ameri- can Christian Jan. 8 and Dover Jan. 11. NOTES - Cape's junior varsity team ran its record to 5-1 with a 32-28 victo- ry over St. Augustine. Cape had bal- anced scoring from Dan McPike with nine points, Dominique Thomas with nine, Dustin Gooch with eight and Isa- iah Brisco with four.

"The ref gave the kid a take- down in the final second of Kyle's match," Mattioni said. "The call was somewhat controversial." Third place finishes were se- cured by Jake Tartal at 145 and Brian Riggin at 189. Bryant Bundick at 130, Josh Weldin at 125 and Matt Reuther at 135 all placed fourth. Cape's next competition is the Glasgow Invitational Friday, Jan. 7.
