Davis had a tough day because of great competition in his events and then you look and see-he contributed 10 points to the victory.

Cape returns to action on Tues- day, April 17, running in a double dual meet against boys and girls versus Dover and Smyrna at Smyrna. l' Cape comes back to mp Brandywine 4-3 By Dave Frederick Cape Gazette staff The weather was cold, but at least windy, ugly and uncomfort- able even by Cape's spring stan- dards last Friday brunch time, April 13, as the Bulldogs of Brandywine baseball team jumped up 3-1 on Cape sailing into the bottom of the fifth inning. Junior Allen Vickers, the ace of the Cape staff, was on the mound having surrendered only one run that was earned to go along with a two-hitter.. Cape closed to 3-2 in the bot- tom of the fifth when Joe D'Amico worked a bases-loaded walk. Mike Morris had an RBI base knock in the bottom of the third to keep the Vikings close. Cape rallied for two runs in the 4 p.m. bottom of the sixth on walks to Will Betts and J.T. Norton, both of whom advanced to second and third on a ground out. Mike Fi.orentino, facing a two- strike pitch with two outs, laced a clean single to right field chasing home both runners and giving Cape its first lead of the game at 4-3. Vickers I would set down the Bulldogs in order in the top of the seventh to preserve the victory. The victory improved a Jimmy \\; Young-coached Cape squad to 3-2 on the season. 'q'his was a huge win for us to get back above .500 on the sea- son," Young said after the game. The boys next play at Laurel, Tuesday, April 17.
