Cape soccer steam still searching for first Whl By. Dave Frederick Cape was leading Sussex Central 1-0 at halfiime in the opening game of the soccer season just on Tues- day Sept. 12. A week later the talented Vikings are 0-3 having let Central escape 4-1, getting blown out in overtime by Delmar 5-2 and then spotting Milford four goals on- ly to come back and lose 4-3. "We're just having trouble putting the ball into the back of the net," said senior Chris Nuebling. "We need to do a better job finishing." Steve Welsh broke a string of being outscored 7-0 over two games when he found the net at the 22:58 mark of the second half against Milford. LateefTur- ral and Chris Nuebling also scored second half goals but it was too little too [ate for Cape. Milford improved to 3-0 with the Victory, but was to run into a tough Dover team on Thursday. RED CARD CORNER! - Cape had two goals called back against Milford, one on a questionable offsides and another on a cross when the official ruled the Cape player stepped out of bounds. Mike Blankenship and Dennis Martinez left the varsity soccer team to romp and stomp in greener pastures. But maybe they could have actually waited until the Delmar game was over. Starting defenders Dan Running Continued from page 92 Marvel-and runner Kim Wescottt who placed 16th among teams and' 11th in the mixed division. An interesting fact i noticed was that only 36 individual competi- tors were from Sussex County of the 659 finishers, which is only six percent taking part locally. The event has grown dramatically and has really attracted the out-of- town competitors to Dewey Beach. Congratulations to all fin- ishers and any missed locals can e-mail results to me at tbam- LOCAL DUO PUMP & RUN - Local runners Melody Carpenter and Lance Fargo competed well last weekend at the Salisbury Pump & Run 5K where competi- tors reduced their overall time based on the number of reps com- pleted on the bench press.

"I want to get below 17 minutes before the season ends," said Popovich. "We are slowly com- ing together as a team and hope- fully when the bigger meets roll around we'll be much tighter to- gether and running fast. The meet with CR should be our toughest meet of the season." Andrew Freeman was second in 18:44 and has been a pleasant sur- prise this season for coach Pat Pollock.

CAPE GAZEq['rE, Friday, Sept. 22 - Sept. 28, 2000 - 93 Dover Downs gears for race weekend Sept. 22-24 Twice a year it arrives in the state capital of Delaware. Twice a year the city of Dover expands its population base four fold. Twice a year Dover becomes the racing hub of the country as NASCAR's finest drivers in the Winston Cup and Busch Series gather to make memories. This week, however, the bar has been raised, as the traditional dou- bleheader becomes a tripleheader, with the addition of a Craftsman Truck Series race on Friday after- noon. In short, it will be an excit- ing week at the Dover Downs In- ternational Speedway. The big show, of course, re- mains the MBNA.COM 400 Win- ston Cup race on Sunday, Septem- ber 24 at 12:30 p.m. That race will find Bobby Labonte attempt- ing to hold on to his top spot in the 2000 Winston Cup points race. He'll have plenty of competition, though, especially from one Dale Earnhardt, who is attempting to capture a record eighth Winston Cup championship. And last year's champ, Dale Jarrett, also figures into the mix, as will Tony Stewart, who won this past June's MBNA Platinum 400. One of the big stories of the week will be Kurt Busch, a 22-year old rising star in the Craftsman Truck Series who will be racing in his first-ever Winston Cup event this week at Dover Downs. Busch and fellow Truck Series driver Andy Houston both will be making the jump to Winston Cup next year. On Saturday, September 23, the MBNA.COM 200 Busch Series race (1 p.m.) will take place and it appear s as if it will serve as yet another stepping stone for Jeff Green on his drive to the Busch Series championship.
