58 " CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 14 - April 20, 1995 Sports & Outdoors Cape laxmen hot, post 4 straight wins By Dave Frederick The Cape Henlopen lacrosse team has been giving opponents a headache over the last two weeks, winning four games in a row while outscoring their opponents 28-14. The squad had been undermanned but operating at full strength. The Vikings dominated a young Worcester team last Friday night, 5-1, behind a hat trick by middle Tom Frederick and single goals by Chris George and Jack Frederick. After spring break, the Vikings are anticipating the return of injured players Spencer Steele and Jack Lingo. The extra strength Vikings could spell "Migraine City" com- ing down the May stretch run heading into the state tournament. "Worcester was young but they have been tough on Cape over the years," said coach Jeff Molar. ''We put a lot of shots on goal early but their goalie played a good game. We still need to do a better job finishing off plays on the offensive end and staying away from man down situations." The defensive trio of Burli Hop- kins, Eduardo Saez and Matt Bak- er continues to improve patrolling the turf in front of goalie Jeff Trench and clearing the ball to the fleet footed midfielders. "We've got St. Andrew's on Saturday, which is an opportunity for our team to send a message to the rest of the state that we're for real," said assistant coach Steve Aubrey. WHAT UP? MAN DOWN! - The Cape lacrosse tournament was canceled this year when Unionville, Pa. backed out at the last minute and St. Peter and Paul also canceled due to internal disci- plinary problems. Caesar Rodney, under the direc- tion of John Coveleski and Tony Spaced, is off to a surprising 7-1 start in only their second year of play. Cape faces the Riders Satur- day, May 6, after playing rugged St. Mark's on Wednesday, May 3. Ryan Short, in his first year of lacrosse, has been starting for Cape on all man down situations. The "Mad Stork" takes up lots of room with an eight foot wing span. Freshmen Josh Wyatt and Scott Steele scored the first goals of their careers in the 11-3 victory over Glasgow. Defenseman Jimmy Derrick, also a freshman, saw action in the victory over Worcester. Casey Owings, grandson of Buck Thompson, started and played well in the defensive mid- dle for Worcester. Kyle Betts, who played attack on last year's Cape lacrosse team, is playing the same position for the Wesley Wolverines. Kyle recently scored a goal in a victory over Widener.

Viking hoopsters play to raise funds for class trip By Jeb Lee Viking basketball players from the varsity, junior varsity and freshmen boys teams reunited in the Cape gym Wednesday night, April 12, to raise money for a student trip to Canada. Players and fans alike dressed casually for the "Blue vs. Yellow Game," a contest which begged many Cape fans to pose the question: "Aren't our school colors blue and gold?" After 50 minutes of schoolyard ball, the yellow team, which had a slight edge in upperclassmen, prevailed 114-103. The rather unusual all-star game featured several missed dunks, two three-pointers from Lavar Hall, and Viking football star Shawn "Boz" Bradham's terrific impersonation of a basketball player. Brad- ham played most of the game, scoring no points while committing six fouls, including an unheard- of technical. Senior standouts Hall and Dwight Young led the scoring with 37 and 32 points, respectively, while Continued on page 59 Plaid pants and golf caps were scattered all over MASTER BLASTER - The Wizard of OZ, Ozzie Warrington, shot a 44 to share medalist honors with Bill Giles (yes, I did make up his first name) of Caesar Rodney as the Viking gold team went down in defeat 168 to 189. Low score wins in golf, same as dwarf tossing. Other finishers for Cape were Jeremy Boyd 46, Corey Grol148, Ben Oakes 51, Jay Wag- amon 52 and David Wilcutts 63 and counting. Just kidding, Dave. The linksters of Coach Jay Lewis are 1-3 on the season, BUT they have fun and are doing a lifetime sport assuming they remain social- ly networked. In late breaking action Cape defeated Indian River 188-204. Ozzie Warrington and Jeremy Boyd shared medalist hon- ors with a score of 45. Ben Oakes and Corey Groll shot 49. Dave Frederick APRIL IN PARIS - I have a college credit in golf from Temple University. And I earned the,cred- it in the winter time in the base- ment of a dank building on North PEOPLE IN SPORTS Broad Street. My partner was Paul Barczy, who was a cross between a Hungarian refugee mother and a Polka musician father. Paul went by the niekuame of '2hooch" (which means jack- ass in Italian), and even his parents affectionately called Paul "Choechie." We were taught by the golf coach who started each 8 a.m. class by playing orchestra music while the class swayed and swished back and forth holding onto the club with two hands like a walker with no legs. Did the alu- minum walker first appear at an after school Detention Invention Convention? 'Wry going down the escalator with this, Grandmom." (Politically Incorrect walker humor.) The course culminated (I hate when I talk like that) with 18 rounds at the Whitemarsh Country Club, the same course where the PGA (Privileged Gentleman of America) play the Whitemarsh Open. I learned quickly why it's called a round of golf because h and I fired off more vol- leys over 18 holes than a 1956 Hungarian Howitzer Heaver. (Russian Invasion Joke Book. See Czechoslovakia, Afghanistan, Azerbajan, and Charred Chechnya Chile Dogs.) There were plaid pants and golf caps scattered all over the course as Paul and I gave new meaning to the concept "Play Through." Our grade was dropped to a C and we were forev- er forbidden to challenge the links at Whitemarsh. I wonder what it costs to join Kings Creek? LAND ROVER - I am putting together a proposal to present to the Toyota Corporation, hoping they'll finance my next book titled "Land Rover, The Truck and the Man." It will be an adventure book but not the usual man against nature. No sailing the Atlantic in a Sunfish, no climbing Mount Ever- est, no aqua nautical ocean floor bouncing in the Mariana Trench. And forget space exploration, unless you're talking Venus. My adventure will be man and machine against man. The world has become an absolutely crazy place, and if you don't believe me, try riding a motor scooter through North Philadelphia on a hot sum- mer night. There are places all over this earth where the people are just plain plum out of their ever loving minds. I want to encounter culture them and write a wiseguy travel log from the safety of my Lewes address. I propose to make three transcontinental jour- neys. The first will be from Bar- row, Alaska to Tierra Del Fuego on the tip of South America. I'll stop for a beer at the Colombian bar where they shot and killed the soccer player dubbed "Autogoal." I'll tell the CIA in Central Ameri- ca that I'm not an American. That way they won't kill me. The Land Rovers, both man and machine, will then be shipped to the Chuek- ee Peninsula on the far east comer of northern Siberia. I'll take the northern route across the Eurasian continent, culminating the trip by driving through the new English Channel Tunnel. I will stop in Poland long enough to test the light bulb joke. The Land Rovers will then be shipped to Tunisia where we will embark on a north to south sojourn straight down the guts of Africa hoping to reach Cape Town in one piece or, at the most, two pieces. The entire pro- ject will cost Toyota less than a 60 Continued on page 59
