Sports & Outdoors 32 TUESDAY, MARCH 10 - THURSDAY, MARCH 12, 2009 Cape Gazette State Basketball Tournament )) Cape's Little Big House in shock trauma for final game By Dave Frederick Ernest Gooch used to drive the ambulance for Beebe Hospi- tal. Last Thursday night in the fi- nal game at Cape's Little Big House it was his great-great- grandson Marcus rocking the siren of an improbable Cape comeback as the Vikings, down 41-30 against Salesianum enter- ing the fourth quarter, outscored the Sals, 27-8, for an improbable 57-49 victory in the opening round of the boys state basket- ball tournament. Cape hit the road to face the Smyrna Eagles Saturday, March 7, where the V'ddngs lost 69-53 as Paul Reynolds dropped 31 points and 14 rebounds on the V'fldngs. Marcus Gooch had 31 points in the second half against the Sal- lies and 20 in the fourth quarter, with no other Viking in double figures. Gooch finished with 35 points, a record for the Little Big House and just six behind the 41 points scored by John Bishop in a tournament game against Newark at Laurel in 1976. "Marcus was unbelievable, but we needed to get some stops in the fourth quarter for this win to happen," said Cape coach Dwight Tingle. Salesianum got a big game from its "go-to" guy, Taylor Tre- visan, who scored 27 points. Salesianum coach Mike Gal- lagher, with 300 wins in his pocket, was gracious if not slightly shocked about the loss. "Our guys played valiantly for the better part of the game, and our go-to guy, Taylor Trevisan, could not have done more. We executed our game plan for most of the way, and give Cape credit, they roared back in the last eight minutes. Gooch was huge for their team, and they deserve to move ahead." Marcus Gooeh outscored the entire Sallies team in the second half31- 24. DAN COOK PHOTOS CAPE SENIOR GUARD Blake Hardy glides in for a shot in the win over the Sals. Power of love propels Smyrna; Cape's love train has left station i noticed something really good going on at a Smyrna basketball game two years ago and wrote about it. These people are unified and cool and seem to like each other, and they're all about Smyrna. So I have backed down from my water tower and prison jokes. Smyrna now has close to 1200 students in grades 9 through 12 and when the new 2,100-capaci- ty gym is completed the school wiU have three working gyms. There had been plans for a nata- torium but that tttrned into a big multipurpose room,, which runs activities around the clock and is home to the Little Wrestlers program and other activities. High school Principal Tony $ali-, go greeted me as "Fredman" last Saturday, March 7, at the basket- ball game - we had met earlier this year at a football game and he offered to take me on a school tour. But I must admit at that point the only tour I was in- terested in was the new Wawa on Route 13. I asked Tony how they did the three-gym thing when Cape was set to demolish a gym the community most cer- tainly needs. "We just like each other," Tony said, offering noth- ing else, and he didn't have to. Cape has become a 24/7 cat fight district with school board members even going racial call- ing out "white people" and a paranoid professional staff bol- stered by a cadre of cracked in- dividuals obsessed with politics but not much interested in hang- ing out with students. The beau- ty of  ocean and Inland Bays and the amber hues of the great marsh produce a deep sea of grouchy people? How does that happen? KYLE WHITE - Kyle White, the dad, ran on my track teams from 1983-85 and helped Cape Hen- lopen win two indoor state titles in 1984 and 1985. Kyle was the guy who could run 4:30 in the mile, 2:00 in the half and 50 flat in the quarter on close to no training. He Kyle White was truly gifted. His son, Kyle, one of the greatest point guards ever to play at Cape, is lighting it DAVE FREDERICK PHOTO SHOWN (I-r) are Leigh Ann Redefer, Hilary Medo, Lindsay $hook,Kara Voss and Raelynn Grogan. up for the Lightning of Goldey- Beacom College in Wilmington, leading the basketball team to its first Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) postseason victory as an NCAA Division II member.

White scored 20 points and was named to the second team all-confer- ence squad. Conlinu on Ige
