CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 21 - April 27, 1995 Sports & Outdoors Cape laxman Tom Frederick, who scored a goal ih the Viking victory, battles'a St. Andrew's player for the ball last Saturday in Middletown.

ViMng laxmen run streak to five By Dave Frederick The Saints went marching out Saturday afternoon, April 15, as the Cape lacrosse team erupted for seven third period goals, erasing a five-all halftime score en route to a 12-7 victory over St. Andrew's. The win for Cape was the Vikings' fifth in a row, giving Cape a 5-1 record heading into spring break. And, as has been the case this entire season, the vie- tory was achieved with three injured starters on the sideline in the person of Spencer Steele, Jack Lingo and Brian Kugelmann. "That third quarter was the best lacrosse we've played all season," said coach Jeff "Moose" Mohr. "And not just because of the seven goals. We were playing with confidence and hitting the open man and getting everyone involved in the offense. These kids deserve a lot of credit. To be 5-1 at this point with all the injuries is a tribute to their hard work and desire." Jack Frederick and Mike Fintel lead the scoring assault with three goals each. Paul Camenisch, Chris George each scored a pair while Tom Frederick and Josh Wyatt scored single tallies. Jeff Trench went the distance in goal protected by the long sticks of Matt Baker, Eduardo Saez,and Burli Hopkins. Reserve defenseman Wesley War- rington also saw plenty of prime time action. Middies Scott Steele and David Barlow also con- tributed quality minutes to the victory. NONRELEASABLE - LET ME GO! - The first half penalty minutes were dominated by the Vikings, making some from down home suspect a preppy con- spiracy. The St. Andrew's playing surface is the nicest on the circuit including the University of Delaware. Tatnall, St. Mark's, Salesianum and Cae- sar Rodney, along with Cape Henlopen, are the major threats in this year's state tournament. The world can be a dangerous place RED NECK OF THE WEEK - Paul Camenisch was at the con- trois of his vintage jeep last Satur- day morning, heading south on Route 1 to catch the lacrosse team's bus for an away game at St. Andrew's. Brian Kugelmann, who has been flipped more times than a fatback burger, was riding shot- gun. Suddenly, the steering com- mittee became the wheel of mis- fortune. "I turned the wheel left and then right and nothing hap- pened," Paul said after I picked him and Brian up from the tarmac of the median strip. "Man we were scared. I thought we were going over," Kugelmann said. All Cape kids know that Brian Kugel- mann has been a passenger in three vehicles that flipped in the last year and a half. He's even starting to look like Dan Akroyd, the hitchhiker in the movie 'q'wi- light Zone .... Want to see some- thing really scary?"i paul"sdad PEOPLE IN SPORTS Dave Frederick Mack in common, was a spectator at St. Andrew's game later in the day. "Did you get that jeep out of there?" I asked P.D. "Sure, I just turned the steering wheel upside down and drove ithome," P.D. said. He,then went on to talk i about Stripped spfines and other P.D. Camenisch, who plays har- good-old-boy stuff of which I mQnica sometimes withthe assort-i, know nothing i "Have you ever ment of bands that have Greg thought of buildlng a punkin' chunker?" was all } could think of to say. During the fourth quarter of the game, Cape's leading scor- er, Tom Frederick, ran off the field with a busted shaft on his lacrosse stick. The sidelines went into a frantic plea for a screwdriver so Tom could steal a shaft from a freshman. "Screwdriver! screw- driver!" the coaches yelled. None was to be had, although a preppy parent did appear to have a ther- mos of fuzzy navels. P.D. was once again to the rescue because, yes, you guessed it, he was carry- ing an all purpose pocket knife which I'm sure was also a slide harmonica. Tom was back in action in a matter of minutes. Honorable Mention All-Redneck goes to Rowland Truitt, who pur- chased a $30 rusted out lawn trac- tor (the tractor had stopped run- ning when a little tyke had poured a bottle of soap bubble liquid into the gas tank) at a yard sale and had down and spreading out a neigh- bor's topsoil pile. Rowland's only comment, "So There I Was." GOOD-BETTER-BEST - My wife and I traveled to Baltimore Friday night to watch the UMBC Retrievers battle the Loyola Grey- hounds in a Division One lacrosse matchup. Hounds versus Dogs in Baltimore was more up my alley than the Delaware at Massachu- setts game billed as Blue Hen Chickens versus Minutemen. Rap music blared over a cheap radio as college rag heads (bandannas are popular with lacrosse players) went through pre-game rituals sending screaming bounce shots into an empty net. Loyola came out of the gates faster than teach- ers heading for spring vacation, jumping out to a 10-1 half-time lead and cruising to a 23-5 victory. Last Tuesday afternoon Syracuse visited Loyola's Astroturf field it repainted (John Deere green) -/and tOrangemen made "pulp and running two days later, play-.3[.Of the Greyhounds, win- ing the good Samaritan knocking ikaflF3d 3. The Baltimore press gives college and high school lacrosse major coverage, while the sport is close to ignored in pro- gressive Delaware. What a whale of a difference. DON'T CALL ME SHIRLEY! - Several friends have asked me if I'm serious about working a deal with the Toyota Corporation and making three transcontinental drives and then writing a humorous trovelogue about the experiences. Yes, I'm serious and I'm currently trying to put a deal together featuring Toy- ota, a major book publisher, and maybe a local dealership like Mil- ford Motors or Wayside Auto sales. "First you need to realize that Toyota makes Land Cruisers not Land Rovers," said my friend John Ellsworth, who ought to know, spending all his working hours across from two parking lots. I did notice Lewes local Bil- ly D. Graves cruising down Continued on page 53
