Sports & Outdoors 26 TUESDAY, JUNE 20 - THURSDAY, JUNE 22, 2017 Cape Gazette By Dan Cook Smyrna’s Nolan Henderson competed 22 of 33 passes for 250 yards and three touchdowns as the Gold All-Stars defeated the Blue squad 44-0 June 17 in the DFRC Blue-Gold All-Star football game at the University of Delaware’s Tubby Raymond Field. It was the most lopsided loss since 1979, when the Gold team put up the same 44-0 score. Henderson, who led the Eagles to two straight DIAA Division 1 Championships,  was named game MVP.  He had 19 comple- tions at the halftime break. The previous record was 11. Glasgow’s Michael Cre- dle caught 10 of Henderson’s passes for 116 yards and two touchdowns.

T he Naturals - Bennett Brumbley, 9, from Lau- rel ran his Father's Day 5K in 22:56. Doc Lee Masser, 81, ran 57:45. Bennett finished his race then went back out on the course and escorted Doc to the finish line. And he does it because he does it, because he gets it, just like Doc always gets it, maybe he is Doc 72 years ago? That was my Father’s Day moment, a cross-generational image of a young boy respecting a tribal elder, a history wrapped around itself.  Just kidding - I often joke that people sometimes say what they really mean followed by “just kidding.” “Say, do you have a big nose or just a small head? Is that a high collar or do you have a short neck?” “Say what?”  “Just kidding, man, just kidding.” I appreciate a good ribbing in my job as sports reporter, especially when I make a mistake, otherwise how would I know? Approaching me with a serious complaint never ends well for the com- plainant. Brent Van Scyoc, 51, from Jarrettsville, Md., recently showed up on the race scene and has been knocking down age group 50-54 and overall clydesdale trophies. Brent won the Georgetown Library 5K in 21:47, the Irish Eyes 5K in 21:46, was champion clydesdale in the Father’s Day 5K in 22:38, first in the Blue-Gold 5K in 21:18, first in the Doug Strong 5K in 20:54 and first senior masters clydes- dale in the Masser Five Miler in 35:22.  But enough about Brent. Somewhere inside that age group 50-54 and clydesdale domination, I messed up and gave first-place credit to some- one else. Brent jokingly brought it to my attention before the Irish Eyes 5K June 17. I wanted to blame it on Nick Roth at the paper, but I did it. Hey, Brent, who is watching Jarrettsville while you’re in seaside Sussex picking up all these trophies? Just kidding! Instant assessment - Dur- ing pregame, the experienced writer or coach, even parent, watches the other team warm up - the team they do not know. Fitness, skill, organizational level and whether they appear to know what they are doing. I would argue that I am good at it and seldom wrong. During the recent girls’ lacrosse tourna- ment, before the semifinal game as Ursuline warmed up, my granddaughter Katie came by and said to me, “They don’t look half bad. In fact, they look pretty good.” I agreed. The Raiders, coached by Feffie Barnhill, came out of the gates to lead Cape 4-2, and the game was tied 4-4 at the half. Cape earned their way home for a 10-5 win, but anyone paying attention knew it was going to be a game just by watching the warm-ups.
