r I I [ !IL !lE[i I il!1 Sports & Outdoors 28 TUESDAY, MAY 20 - THURSDAY, MAY 22, 2014 Cape Gazette Vikings girls' lax handles CR 20.6 in first round Cape moves on to face Ursuline in semis May 20 By Dave Frederick fredman@capegazette.com Cape girls' lacrosse didn't win five straight state championships by losing focus or not having a plan. On May 17 at Champions Stadium, the Vikings played the 713.m. game, the last of four on a crazy opening-round day that earlier saw Archmere sur- vive a seven-goal comeback by Tower Hill to win 13-12; Caravel relinquish a five-goal, second- half lead, then lose to Ursuline in overtime 18-17; and Polytech drop a home game to Charter 13-9. "Forget the game earlier; this is the second season and a whole new game," coach P.J. Kesmodel told his team as they took the field Cape responded by playing everyone while mostly resting some key performers including draw specialist Karalyn Joseph, who is rehabbing a tender ankle. Cape won the game 20-6 as junior Sarah Tappan scored her 100th goal. The Vikings will play Ursuline at 7 p.m., Tuesday, May 20, at Dover in a semifinal game. Cape beat the Raiders on the road just last week 17-4. "I have always said the semi- finals is the toughest game," Kesmodel said. "We beat Saint Mark's 9-8 in 2009 and Tower Hill 9-8 in 2010. Once you reach the final, you just go out and play and enjoy the experience." Cape outshot Caesar Rodney 36-17 as both goalies had good games. CR's Kaitlyn Longest had 6 saves and Cape's Sam Broad- hurst had 7. Cape's goal scorers were AUie Yeager 4, Sarah Tappan 4, Kat Judge 3, Jordan Brown 2, Lizzie Frederick 2, and single goals from Karissa Lemaire, Korrine Lemaire, Alison Palmer, Tess Bernheimer and Lexi Woodruff. Cape assists were Allie Yeager 2, Lizzie Frederick 2, Kat Judge, Sarah Tappan, Jordan Brown and Lexi Woodruff. Caesar Rodney goals came from Kourtney Olsen and Del- aney Steele each with 2 and Abigail Wearden and Jenna Rig- by. Olsen had 2 assists and Steele had 1.

Cat Stevens 'Looking for a Hard Headed Woman' - not coaches elatives of the week - The Salisbury Univer- sit women's lacrosse team defeated the Franklin and Marshall Diplomats 11-6 May 18 at Seagull Stadium to advance to the national semifinals of the ivision III tournament. Shan- non Carta, granddaughter of Mike and Ellen Carta of Lewes, had four goals and an assist for the Gulls while Grace Saliba, daughter of Carl Saliba and granddaughter of Dr. Anis Sal- iba of Lewes, had a goal and an assist for Frankiln and Marhsall. Hard- headed women - The Cape girls' track team Shannon Carta was seven events into the May 17 state track meet and hadn't scored in an), event. The Vikings finished with 0nly 20 points, good for 10th place. Most of the girls who were freshmen on the state champi- onship team did not hang with the program through their se- nior season. A taste of success did not leave some athletes hun- gry for more. Hard-headedness is usually associated with the boys' side of track and field, as management of person- alities and harnessing their talent in the springtime can be a big- ger challenge than teaching an athlete how to triple jump. Grace Saliba Every good coach can talk about athletic talent they just couldn't capture and keep focused over a four- year career. Cape baseball slides home - The Cape baseball team slid into home in a cloud of dust May 17, losing to Saint Mark's 13-6 and closing out the season on a seven-game losing streak. Mystifying beyond analyzing is the way I see it; perhaps in was in the cards like jokers in a sealed deck just waiting to get loose and pushed aside. I will say that of all the boys' scholastic sports, baseball is the toughest place to make a living, because everyone can play a little hardball. The junior varsity season was 10-4 with a game remaining, and Beacon Academy just closed out the season undefeated, so no one is throwing in the towel, but a whisk broom to dust off the plate is a good idea. Is the fix in? You know those people who think profes- sional sports are fixed to create fan interest and make more money for the league? That is, of course, ridiculous until a crooked referee or point- shaving player with a gambling addiction shows up. I watched the Indiana Pacers "take the heat" in game one of the Eastern Conference finals and thought two things: Please spare us from thinking Indiana is relevant to the national conversation, and will the Heat win in six games or seven? MLB Network- I inquired as to the cable and cloud cost of hav- ing everyone's baseball game in my pocket...sounds wrong...but that $200 luxury can be better spent on a new hose bib - and anyway I like the Orioles' and Nationals' broadcasting crews and both teams are in conten- tion. The Phillies remain a painful viewing experience in every way from baseball on the field to commentaries from the press box. Recline of the empire - I'm a sports reporter, so I don't carry a chair to work. I figure if the people I cover and photograph are in motion, the least I can do is stand and pay attention. Many of my age contem- poraries are perched in the spring-10aded lounger waiting for instruction from the tower of power - usually their wives' "We"re out of dog food," before quickly returning for the next assignment. During last Satur- day's state track meet I saw turn and zone judges and high jump judges all chaired up and not of- fering me any respite and a few Continued on page 30
