Flowers 54-38 By Dave Frederick fredman@capegazette.com Cape basketball jumped out by 8 then gave back 7 [o lead unbeat- en Easton 30-29 at halftime Dec. 28 in the Governors Challenge at the Wicomico Civic Center. Cape went on to lose 57-55 with leading scorer Jon Warren serving a two-game Christmas break time out for a discipline infraction. "We almost stole the game and Jt would have been thievery," coach Steven Re said afterward. "The team played really well. ob- viously Gekwan [Pritchett] hit- ting five 3-pointers, but he can do that. Toney Floyd has also been playing much better and working hard in practice." With four minutes left in the fourth quarter, Cape trailed 49-41 then got back in it using the three- guard offense of Toney Floyd, Gekwan Pritchett and Tyreik Bur- ton. Toney Floyd converted a pass from Tyreik to cut the lead to 54- 52 with 1:15 left. Cape got possession on a jump ball. Burton took the ball to the basket and was called for an of- fensive foul. Easton converted a pair to lead 56-52. Pritchett, pressed into a starting role with the benching of Jon Warren, followed with his fifth 3- pointer of the game and 19th point as Cape trailed 56-55 with 3.9 left in the game. Cape then fouled; Easton made one to lead 57-55.

Can't tell anyone anything don't know already ig Loser Boy - I have many alter egos and aliases. My high school sports reporter persona is Big Loser Boy because I will go anywhere at any time to cov- : something. Wednesday after- noon, 55 miles from home "down to Snow Hill," I was in search of Cape at an indoor track meet except they didn't show and didn't bother to pon- der, "I wonder if Big Loser Boy knows we're not going?" Milford didn't go either, and Sussex Tech brought four athletes -three boys and Bethany Killmon - and Caesar Rodney hasn't figured out who I am after 30 years, so I was forced to make new friends. Elsa Brumbaugh of Kent Island led off the 4-by-800-meter relay with a personal best 2:39. Re- bekah Mills, a CR sophomore, walked the dog on anchor, run- ning a 2'37. And Jessalynn Ken- ton, a Lake Forest freshman and granddaughter of state Rep. Har- vey Kenton, patiently spelled her first name for me a letter at a time, sensing I was slowed down by the conflicting stimuli inside the arena. I told her that I was from Cape and she reminded me so much of... "Jenna Steele," she finished. Just like at home, I can't tell anybody something they don't already know. Braveheart - Dan Cook took the photo; I was too busy taking a picture of my shoe tops. It was Anna Frederick on the ground raising her STX stick high in the air after Sara Young sent home the go-ahead goal against Del- mar in the state championship game. Carrie Lingo gave me the stick last August, and I gave it to Anna as a birthday present. Car- fie went polar bearing New Year's Day; I told her that stick had magic. Carrie said, "I sent it to STX [she works for the com- pany]; it was like the greatest picture ever, but the magic is in the player." Carrie was starting to get pumped ready to play a DAN COOK PHOTO Anna Frederick celebrates Sara Young's game-winning goal versus Delmar. game; you don't get that good by smiling all the time. Don't buy Ray Lewis - I was at the Super Bowl in Atlanta in 2000. My nephew Mike was on the Titans that lost to the Rams. For three years before that, Mike was on the Ravens squad. I was in downtown Buckhead the night before the game and at the Titans' hotel party after the game.
