Dave Frederick 80 - CAPE GAZETrE, Friday, May 23. May 29, 1997 SPORT00 8Z: ()UTDOORS Cape blanks Riders 5-0 in first round of softball tourney Manship outduels former Viking Savage for shutout victory By David M Frederick The Cape softball team came up with a big sixth inning to better Caesar Rodney 5-0 in the first round of the state tournament Wednesday in Lewes. Angela Griffith started the inning by reaching first on an error. Carrie Lingo followed with a textbook bunt for a base hit. With runners on first and second, Caesar Rodney decided to pitch around Katie Del Campo and loaded the bases for Crystal Alexander. Alexander drilled the ball to shortstop and an errant throw to first base allowed Grif- fith and Lingo to score. Michelle Manship fol- lowed and laid down a squeeze bunt which scored DelCampo. MANSHIP der and Manship. A five mn cush- ion would prove to be more than enough as Cape's defense contin- ued the solid play that they had shown throughout the game. The contest started out as a pitchers' duel between Cape junior Michelle Manship and Cae- sar Rodney freshman Janis Sav- age. Both hurlers sustained a no- hitter through four innings behind solid defenses. The entire game took just over an hour. Caesar Rodney threatened in the fifth. Janis Savage started the inning with a single and Sarah Jackson was put in to pinch mn. The Cape defense came up with a big double play which would prove to be crucial. Caesar Rod- ney followed the double play with singles from Jadha Batton and Erin Cooper. These efforts would prove to be futile as there were no "ducks on the pond." Coach Bill Cordrey was pleased with the effort of his team and commended the effort of the young Caesar Rodney team. "Janis threw well. Both teams played good defense. The double play in the fifth was a key. The next girl got a base hit." Janis Savage, who is the daugh- Viking soccer finishes with win By Scott Friedenreieh In its final game of 1997, the Cape Henlopen girls varsity soccer team capped off an exciting season with a resounding 8-0 victory over winless Wilmington High School. Sophomore Diane Friend got the Lady Vikings off to an early lead when she beat Wilmington goal- keeper Laura Weaver just 26 sec- onds into the match from a Kelly Palekar assist. Palekar followed suit at 9:17 from an Alison Gaffney pass, and within 10 min- utes Palekar had scored again, this time assisted by Emily Bishoff. By halftime the score was 5-0 in favor of Cape through goals by freshman Jodi Moore from .a Shaye Dentino assist, and Emily Walls scoring unassisted. Cape's dominance over their upstate opponent continued into the second half as senior Wendy Herbert notched her first goal of the season, by heading a Friend comer kick into the lower left cor- ner of the Wilmington goal. Dentino then scored at 70:00 from a Walls assist, and seven minutes later Dentino hammered IC Angle Moon photo Stephanie ter of former Cape baseball coach ape's Emily Walls gains control of the ball for the Vikings the final nail into Wilmington's Warrington followed with a single Jeff Savage, had some reflections ia their season-ending victory, coffin from a Herbert assist.

And I'm not a role model either in the stomach or back of the neck. So why are medium yup- py tourons picking through the outlet malls in stores like Big Dogs and Dockers? I do reverse curls five times a week just to build up my hands and forearms so I can get that one pants button to line up with my natural button which once actually rooted a grape seed nurtured by dryer lint - but I digress. I turned off the Flyers game Sunday with my boys win- ning 1-0 and went into Dockers in search of pants. I was cross- checked into several display tables by focused women who were lead- ing their "DA" husbands around asking questions like, "Do you have this color Bert? These would go good with that lavender shirt I bought for you at the garage sale in Ellendale. Do you like the flat PEOPLE IN SPORTS front style?" Meanwhile I'm I homicidal. I'm studying the ( graphic that shows the progression from Classic Fit, through Relaxed ( Fit and ending comfortably with t Loose Fit. "That's me, I think. I Ever since high school football x where I was cajoled into driving a s seven man sled two city blocks for 1 my own good, the very concept of a man with quadriceps so overde- veloped he could bounce a 300 ound woman into an above- round p0oiwith a double leg tension ("No more Aunt Rose[ m cramping!") has eluded light- l-the-loafers fashion designers. inally I hip-checked several ,omen into the sidewalks and I'm ddng position in the crease look- tg at pleated, loose-fitting Dock- rs. And then I check the waist izes. "Thirty-Two! That's it, 'hirty-Two! Since when did guys dth 32 inch waists require a ,oose Fit in the seat and legs?" Skateboarder dudes and Yo-boy tannabe's wear them," I was told y my high school friends. And so walked to the car like Flyers on ry land because of my bad back nd switch on the game. The Fly- rs are now losing 3-1 and it's all ecause there are no loose-fitting )ockers for bruising grandfathers ho wear shorts with elastic tretch bands on the sides. I'm in ike lint. BURROWING THE ! LATCHET- When's the last time you stared down an old tree stump that was nes- tled neatly in a cross buck like a pig in a hammock? Last Sunday as part of the wedding HATCHET TOSS reception fes- tivities for Captain Speed Lack- hove and his new bride, Denise, a friendly game of end-over-end deadly weapon throwing broke out. "I wouldn't stand there if I was you," was the advice given to every spectator. I'm not sure as a victim which would be worse: being hit by the blunt end of a rusty axe or picking one out of the side of your skull. "Now I'm mad Jethro. You shouldn't oughta done that." Most throws (long dell knives were also being tossed) missed the stump completely. Sus- sex County is sure a long "way of life" from the DuPont Country Club. Thank God for squaw favors. (Tomahawk joke book) A camping competition this week- end will consist of a muzzleloader marksmanship, archery, toma- hawk toss and knife throw. The winner will receive a brand new muzzleloader. Last year's compe- tition was hosted by Bill Thomp- son and won by Bill Thompson the same way he hustled rednecks in the early days of Punkin' Chunkin'.
