Cape coaches (I-r) celebrate the 2013 Henlopen Conference Championship: Greg Smock, Tom Rushin, Pat Woods, Shemik Thompson and Stephen Re. The Vikings are fighting hard to get back to the championship game in 2014. The Vikings also won at Sussex Tech to open the season 81-73; that is still the only conference loss on the season sustained by the Ravens. Cape had two victories in hand that were swept away, one at Arundel and the other at Caesar Rodney, where the Vikings had a four-point lead with a minute to play and possession of the bas- ketball, and lost both ball games. Cape also lost at home to Mil- ford 74-72 when the Bucs looked like a real deal behind Harris and Parker, but Milford has since slipped to 5-5. It looks like Laurel at 9-1 could be the team sitting in wait for whoever emerges from the Henlopen Northern Division dogfight. Cape jumps both feet back into the fire when the game schedule resumes Friday, Jan. 24, playing at Sanford. The Warriors are 7-3, with all losses coming to out-of- state teams. Cape then plays at Sussex Cen- tral - dangerous venue, hard place to win - before finishing the season with five straight home games versus Caesar Rodney, Seaford, Dover, Smyrna, and Sussex Tech, and on the road at Polytech in a rematch of last year's Henlopen Conference Championship game. Cape, Caesar Rodney and Sus- sex Tech all control their own destinies, but fate will only allow one to emerge as Northern Divi- sion champion.
