Lacrosse Continued from page 90 American at Salisbury State' and now plays for the Philadelphia Wings in the Indoor Pro Lacrosse League. Josh Bergey is "the man" for this year's Tatnall squad. And dad, in reality, doesn't coachor ref but who's going to tell him? "Bergey [the player] kept talking to me at the beginning of the game [Tatnall trash talk]," said Cape de- fenseman Matt Hall. "He asked me how long it took us to get up here and I said about an hour and a half. But I didn't want to talk, I just wanted to hit him and poke him with my long pole." Josh Bergey shook off Cape's hits like a wet retriever and scored two goals for the game. By half- time, Tatnall was hanging around 10-6 and Cape knew they were in a ball game. "They're pretty good but I don't think we played very well," said Scott Steele. "I know they'll be waiting for us in the toumarnent." Tatnall, playing in only its sec- ond game of the season, outscored Cape 3-2 in the second half before losing the close game, 12-9. Cape maintained a 38-30 ad- vantage in shots on goal. Goalie Billy Brennan had 12 saves for the game. Cape's scoring was paced by Steele, 3; Billy Lingo, 3; Malek Lopez, 2; Wyatt, 2; and Derrick Quillen, 2. CAPE 17 - DOVER 3- The Briefly Cape Re gion Athletes Of The Week DAN PRETTYMAN Dan was medalist in four of the last five matches for the Cape Henlopen golf team. Standing in front of Prettyman, one is struck by his size -'15 feet, which may be a record for medalist golfers. Dan holds a personal best 38 for nine holes of com- petition, but has shot a round of 35. CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 10 - April 16, 1998.91 People Continued from page 90 his eyes watching Dale Earnhardt Jr. win his first race last Saturday at the Busch Grand National, bumping and passing Joe Niemechek on the last lap. The Intimidator himself, Daddy Dale, was on the radio leading his boy to victory lane. Daddy had tears in his eyes as his son took the check- ered flag. "If he was crying he didn't do it in front of me but that would be typical," Junior said. Dale Jr. is a good old boy in the best sense of the term. Daddy Dale on the other hand is a moth- er, if you catch my meaning. Dave Frederick photo The Viking lacrosse squad raises its sticks toward victory near the end of a recent game.

MALEK LOPEZ The mercurial middie from the Cape lacrosse team has come up big in the big games. Last Saturday Malek scored two left-handed goals in a 12-9 victory over Tatnall. The previous week, Lopez " scored the game-winner on a fourth-quarter goal against powerhouse Kent County. Lopez, who scored three touchdowns during football season, has also spent some time in the penalty box. "It's mostly just for dumb stuff," he said. E.J. CHALABALA Chalabala clubbed the big hit April 6 as the Cape base- ball team came from behind to defeat Delmar, 8-7. Cape entered the bottom of the seventh inning trailing 7-2. After scoring three runs and making two outs, Chalabala stepped to the plate with the bags full of Vikings. E.J. laced a double to the gap, scoring all three runs and nailing down the victory for relief pitcher Mike Cunning- ham. RICKY THOMPSON Ricky was in the weight room on April 6 and on the track on April 7. Covering .for the injured Kai Maull, Ricky won the long jump against Caesar Rodney and then came back to capture the high jump with a person- al best jump of 6 feet. Thompson also ran an explo- sive leg on the 100-meter re- lay team. Look for Ricky to be a factor in some event at the state level. REYNOLDS WRAPS William Penn football coach Bruce Reynolds has won numer- ous state football championships and has been in the state legisla- ture for 25 years. Bruce is a funny guy and has emceed numerous sports banquets, cracking up the crowd. "Your girl friend was bap- tized at Seaworld. When the prin- cipal passes her in the hallwhy he says, 'Hey! Break it upl' Your girlfriend has dyslexia so bad she lays on top of the television and watches the couch." Reynolds is one high-profile state legislator that has been outwardly opposed to Gov. Tom Carper's proposed accountability program for Delaware schools. And now it looks like the governors' initia- tives, developed and presented by Secretary of Education Iris Metts and her legion of dogmatic, self- important deadly boring profes- sionals in pinstripes, are going down faster than Libyan jets in a U.S. dogfight. Reynolds said he would oppose any accountability issue until the state deals with school funding, teacher training and student discipline. Reynolds for governor! SNIPPETS - Lindsey Bar- kauskie, Cape's state champion high jumper and also a hurdler, has been lost to the spring track team because of an emergency appendectomy...Good friends Carl Floyd, Mardi Biles and Ricky Thompson shared the point guard duties on this year's Cape basketball team. All three high- performance speed merchants are a shade under 5 feet 6 inches. "Mardi did whatever we asked him for this team," said coach Ed Waples. "He's quite a personality and helped keep everybody loose. Parnell "Peewee" Biles, who played at Rehoboth for John Mc- Clelland back in his day, is Mar- di's uncle. "Tell Mardi that I could play," Pee Wee asked me before Sunday night's banquet. "Are we talking offense or de- fense, Parnell?" Parnell Biles could jump, shoot the jumper, re- bound and yell real loud when cherry picking on the break. But he could only go right. Do the right thing Pee Wee. And don't even think about sticking with my game. Go on now, gitl"
