Cape soccer fights for overtime; net draw and pair of losses By Brat Williams Cape's varsity soccer team picked up two hard-fought losses to Dover and St. Andrew's last week, while struggling to secure a tie with conference rival Lake Forest Tuesday, Sept. 22. The young and improving Vikings remain at home for the next four games, facing Polytech Thursday, Oct. 1; Middletown, Saturday, Oct. 3; Smyrna, Tues- day, OcL 5; and Indian River, Thursday, Oct. 8. The ,Vikings traveled to Dover last Thursday to play highly ranked Dover on the Senators' home field. The highly energized defense of Andy Paller, Robert Wolfgang, and senior Brett Williams held the tough offense of Dover to a half- time lead of only 1-0. Intensified and ready to play in the second half, the Vikings took the field, but the Senators had more tricks up their sleeves. Constantly battering the de- fense, Dover was able to wear down the Vikings and put several more shots past goalkeeper Brian Meisner. "Their speed was hard to man- age, but our offside traps held their attack in check," said Wolf- gang. "I thought the game was much closer than the score [5-0] showed." The Saints at St. Andrew's .School traveled to Cape, Satur- day, Sept. 26. St. Andrew's pulled out to a quick 3-0 lead on Cape before halftime, as a stunned Viking squad remained baffled about how to put balls into the back of the net. Halfback Jason Johnson said, "It is so frustrating to see a squad like ours, with so much talent, put ourselves into situations like that. Our team is so much better than how we play." The second half saw a dramatic difference in the play of the squad. The defense played with more vigor, and the offense created more chances. Despite a late goal by St. An- Waves wash over Seaford in soccer The Henlopen Waves, a girls i4-and-under soccer team based in Re- hoboth Beach, pounded Sea_ford, 4-0, Saturday, Sept. 26. Lam'en Cooper scored her second hat trick and now has six goals and two assists in two games. Kathryn King scored the Wave's other goal, while Erin Williams picked up three assists, giving her six in two games. Also playing strong games on defense for the Waves were Lau- ren and Jessica Folke, Christa Baird and Khara Conlon. The Waves will play at Dover Saturday, Oct. 3.

Tuesday, Sept. 29, found the Cape Vikings at Lake Forest, ready to challenge the conference adversary. Not ready for a quick attack, Lake Forest was able to put in a goal in the opening minutes. Determined not to fall behind, Stephen Welsh finished a ball fed to him by Ben Laxton. Lake Forest and Cape Henlopen continued to attack the goal as the score jumped from Lake's favor to a tie. At the end of the second period, goals from Welsh and Bri- an Sentman had tied the game at three apiece. Overtime wrung the ,energy out of both teams, as constant pres- sure was applied in every aspect. Not distressed by a goal in over- time by Lake, senior co-captain Chris Myers placed a firm, free kick past a stretched-out goalie, to score the tying and final goal. Both teams were unhappy to come out with a tie but were overjoyed not to lose. Cape lost at Milford High School 5-1. Despite the numbers on the scoreboard, Cape showed much improvement from a team with many inexperienced players who continually make strides of growth on the field, Myers was able to place a well- struck free kick past the hands of Milford's goalie late in the second half of the game. The varsity squad avenged its early loss to Milford by defeating rival Worcester Country School, 2 to 1. Robert Baker and Laxton each placed a shot into the back of net from assfsts by senior co-captain Myers. The win, Cape's first, im- proved the team's record to 1-2 going into the Dover match.
