90 FRIDAY, MARCH 15 - MONDAY, MARCH 18, 2013 Gazette Vikings search for consistency 6n offense By Dave Frederick" The weather was so dreary and eerie March 12 at Legends Stadium for the boys' lacrosse scrimmage versus Kent Island that half the parents didn't show up - actually, it was a lot more than half. Both Eastern Shore storied programs are packed with pride, and the boys know each other going back to U13 days as At- lantic Lacrosse expanded its local reach-looking for foreign competition. "We just need tobe more con- sistent on offense and not turn the ball over," said Cape offensive coach Mark D'Ambrogi. "There were good things in the scrim- mage. I think we're going to be OK." Both teams word gray sweats with no numbers; Kent Island wore dark scrimmage vests on top of the sweats. It was difficult to notice who was who unless you were related. Cape head coach Jack Lingo calls out a defensive set. Kent Island, 16-3 last sea- son and 32-5 over the last two, jumped on top ofCape early, but by halftime the unofficial score was tied at 6 as Luke Benson, Michael Hopkins and Todd Keen rang the bell for Cape. Cape is a team coming off an 11-6 season that included close losses to Wilmington Friends, Archmere, two to Tower Hill and additional losses to Salesianum and Caesar Rodney. Cape won its last Delaware state title in 2008 with a record of 18-1. Continued on page 95 Cape face-off specialist Hunter Dai- ley brings the ball into the Vikings' of- fensive zone.

They wheeled in the aged superinten- dent, the grand rubber stamper himself, noticed the letters on my certification read ED/SEM but not EMH. Wrong certifi- cate; no state reimbursement to the school district. I was un- ceremoniously cast to the curb of Route 322. I arrived back at the West Chester apartment inside a big old brick house. The phone on the kitchen wall rang. "Bob Martin, Cape Hen- lopen." 'I'm happy for you," I said in a rude tone. I had never heard of Cape Henlopen, Lewes or even Rehoboth Beach. He started to explain the location and job available when a water pipe over my head burst and started to douse my head and short out the phone. A wet and collapsed hanging ceiling panel was draped over my head like a nun's habit. My wife's reac- tion upon entering the kitchen was predictable: "What are you doing?" Here I am, a Cape guy 38 years later asking myself the same question. Birthday buddies - I share March 14 with Albert Einstein, Darren Purcell, Kathy Heacook, Darren Purcell Steve Taylor and Mary Beth Evans. One birthday Su- san whipped .me up a bowl of cake batter and gave me a big spoon and a pitcher of ice water. That was the best.
