28 - CAPE GAZE'IWE - Tuesday, April 15 - Thursday, April 17, 2008 SPORTS & OUTDOORS Cape's sixth sense leads to pair of comeback wins By Dave Frederick said, 'Let Lauren finish.'" Cape Gazette staff Gill shut the Spartans in order to preserve the win. The Cape softball team came away from a pair of Cape Wailed Padua 1-0 in the bottom of the fourth dangerous games last weekend pulling sixth-inning inning last Saturday when, with two out and a runner deficits into seventh-inning victories with a Friday 4- on second, the game was called for a rumble and rain 3 win over Lake Forest followed by a 7-5 Saturday delay. afternoon comeback win over visiting Padua.

The Pandas put up a three spot in the top of the "I expect Central to be a one- or two-run game and sixth as Cape found itself in a deeper hole then the I expect us to win it," Givens said.

The difference betweerL these two track,teams is paper thin WEIGH IN HILLARY - I am up to the eyeballs with coveted green jacket stories and I watched the final coverage last Sunday in high definition as South African Trevor Immelman won just 30 years after his boyhood idol and fellow countryman Gary Player won in 1978. Player was in Augusta early in the weekend but then took off for the Middle East. But at least he left Trevor a voice mail. Five years ago the Augusta Club was picketed by angry women for being sexist as in "no women" and NOW nobody cares, but I would love to hear Barack Obama who was compared by someone from the Clinton cam- paign as the Tiger Woods of poli- tics and Hillary weigh in with a hit of Augusta wind. OFF THE HOOK Dave Frederick My question: "Who keeps those stats?" You know what's nasty is that the pesky bacteria tends to be pus producing. Reality bites! C'MON COWBELL I thought it was a bit rude for the Padua Pandas third basel coach to call her batter "Cowbell," although it is a cool nickname reflecting on Christopher Walken in the Saturday Night Live skit "I gotta have more cow- bell!" Cowbell got on base but SUFFERING FROM STAPH - Last year I went to the website of the place I Kent to high school and the lead article was explain- ing how a staph infection out- break was under control, although impetigo was still a persistent problem. Honey what is that on your back? I just read that wide reciever for the Cleveland Browns, Joe Jurevicius, contracted staphylo- coccus atrreus bacteria after knee surgery and is the sixth Brown in by Connie Floyd trying to steal second. Then I thought Connie rings up Cowbell but then reality bit me when I realized Cowbell was really Kell-Kell for Kelly and so Cowbell may still be available for a vanity tag. BIG TUESDAY - The Caesar Rodney boys and girls track and field teams will be at Cape Tuesday, April 15, and are slight favorites to defeat the Vikings on both sides, but looking at the matchups the difference between these teams is paper thin. Track meets are 18 events for both boys and girls with 11 running events which include four relays. Also on Tuesday the Cape softball team (7-1) travels to Sussex Central to battle the undefeated Golden Knights before hosting Delmar on Thursday, April 17. The boys lacrosse team is at Tatnall on Friday, April 18, while the girls lax team hosts Worcester on the same day.

CLEARING THE DECKS - Mariner's baseball team defeated _ Smyrna 7-4 on April 9, behind strong pitching from Jake Jake Dmiterchik provided much of the run support scoring two runs each. Roy Martinez, Ryan Muchmore, TK Pabon and Bobby Zakrewski all hit the ball hard. Mariner is 2-0 on the season going into week 3.

The Indian River boys tennis team, coached by Patsy Cicala, is currently undefeated which must have something to do with the Sea Colony tennis community and all those tennis courts. A planned conditional:use permit to con- struct outdoor and indoor tennis courts off Old Mill Road in the Nassau area was met with heavy communities have tennis courts as part of the landscape. Tennis is a good neighbor - there are permit- ted-use neighbors that would not be so nice. The Saint Thomas More girls soccer team is currently 3-0 after defeating Caravel 3-0. Goals were scored by Kaitlin LeBlanc (Lauren Schimp assist), Morgan Hudson (Kaiflin LeBlanc assist) and Katie Dogherty (Tricia Colucci assist). Tricia Colucci is related to me being a great-niece by marriage once or twice removed. She is a second cousin to my grandchildren.
