By Dave Frederiick St. Mark's mercurial midfielder Jena Boccetti ripped the Cape nets for seven goals in an inspired ef- fort, but the Spartans couldn't overcome the balance of Cape and the goaltending of Sarah White as the Vikings posted an impressive 14-9 lacrosse victory. Boccetti couldn't stop smiling as she hugged Cape's head coach Gretchen Wyshock after the game. "She was my coach in seventh and eight grades and we all just loved her," Boccetti said. "We knew coming down here that Cape had a great team. They have so many good players it's hard to keep them down." Cape was the playing without star midfielder Megan Fullmer, who was sitting out the game for her two yellow cards against Dover. That was a call to the young girls to step it up for the home night contest. Amy Levy worked her way free in front of the net as Casey Layton did a great job behind the net find- ing open cutters. Levy scored four of Cape's first five goals and Continued on page 115 Dan Cook photos Amy Levy fires the first goal of the game past the St. Mark's goalie April 30 in a 14-9 upset victory over the Spartans. Ask my wife about the time she tried to burn down Second Street CHUNK IS TO CHOPPED and moving towards my house Second Street in Lewes. It's a scholastic talents and it seems AS CHUCKS IS TO CHOPS - My uncle lost his job as a meat cutter for licking.his chops. "Don't let your meat loaf," his boss sarcastically joked as old fat Harry's career ground rounded to a halt. Yo, Dog! I just want to buy some Alpo, not to anthropomor- phize myself behind the eyes of some marsh-crazed retriever. I read where the government wants to re-emphasize the teaching of writing in the secondary schools and here I am a lifetime teacher and journalist and I'm falling the ' Super G stump the average dog owner test. Alpo cans are confus- ing and the pictures don't help all that much. One of the types, chunks or chopped, my dog does- n't like but I can never remember. I chose chopped, figuring that meant little pieces. Then, to add injury to insult, I ripped my rota- tor cuff trying to shock and awe the one cylinder of dog food loose from the can. Jesse turned her nose up because she prefers chunks to chopped, but Mickey vacuumed up all horsemeat like a Dirt Devil on a family of dust balls. Family of dust balls? Close relatives to the dirtballs coming to PEOPLE IN SPORTS Dave Frederick a neighborhood near you. Trivia: Who was the Cape school board member some years ago who asked in a public meet- ing, "What are we doing about all the dirtballs in our school?" No joke. The dirtballs were out- raged.

The biggest and furthest away was the old "controlled burn" trick out in the Great Marsh. The one in close was not supposed to be happening and therefore qualifed as suspi- cious, or at least of unknown ori- gin like my cousin, "Harry The Frogman." Thank the Lord of your choosing that John Bunting was working on my house and Larry McLaughlin came from up the street. The two firefighters produced rakes from the magic of thin air like Minnesota Fats screwing together a custom pool stick. John and Larry working like landscapers on Crystal Meth raked the forest floor feverishly. "Rake everything towards the center," Larry said. That, of course, is the opposite of what I would have done, but in matters of safety and instanta- neous decision making I am a complete idiot. Gordon Davis and the pumper truck and enough fire- man to "get serious" shut down what was certain to be the eco- nomic catastrophe of my life, far outdistancing all the engines that seized for lack of water and oil. I love the Lewes Fire Department and all the guys in the funny hats. I've owned two houses in my life and they have saved them both. You'll have to ask my wife about the time she tried to burn down good thing Chief Barber wasn't moving a house that day; that's all I'm sayin'. Know what I'm sayin' ? TORCHED - There is nothing to say when taking a relentless beating besides, "Ouch!" The Tatnall Hornets, playing with a season theme of "intensity," beat Cape in every phase of the lacrosse game last Thursday night 16-3. There is a long history of back and forth romp and stompin between these two teams inter- spersed with great games going down to the final shot. There is no doubt that early on in the season this is Tatnall's state champi- onship to lose. They are the best team, which is nice and somewhat relevant, but when the state tour- nament begins it is, in fact, any- one's game. Cape has lost a cou- ple titles under similar circum- stces and so has Caesar Rodney. GREAT KIDS - Kenny Riedel and Andy Olenderski, both sen- iors at Cape, have decided to at- tend the University of Delaware to further their educations. Both boys have nailed down major scholarship money for their trite to say that I've never met bet- ter people, but I haven't. They are my heroes because they make me feel better about myself, and that ain't their job or an easy job. If a great young person thinks you're cool, what more could a 57-year- old grandfather ask for? Man, how can any teacher complain? It is a privilege working with the young people of this community - even the really troubled ones who are nearly as bad as I was at their age, but none really qualify. SNIPPETS - Gus Rehnstrom was running the clock at last Tues- day afternoon's Cape at Milford soccer game. Gus is a one-of-a- kind teacher and champion of Milford athletics who is as old school as the Bucs' cinder track. They don't make them like Gus anymore. Sussex Tech boys will host the Dover Senators this Tuesday in a track showdown that should de- termine the Henlopen Conference champion. Marty Cross is the head coach of the Ravens. Remember when it felt so good to feel bad? To wain beyond your limits then compete like a wild Continued on pale 115.
