20 - CAPE GAZETYE, Friday, October 8 - October 14, 1993 Sports & Outdoors Cape shakes underdog label with win over Dover Senators By Dave Frederick "I've had butterflies in my stomach all day just because l' m a little nervous and excited. But I know one thing: We ain't losing." - Fullback Derrick Wilson, Friday before Dover game. The Cape cat is out of the bag and the label of underdog is now worn by opponents thanks to a Fri- day night, Oct. 1 clinic at Dover High in which the Vikings took apart the favored Senators 20-6. And the score could have been worse. "The game was a credit to the kids and how hard they've been working," said Coach George Glenn after the game. "I was impressed with how focused the kids were all day long. We are still making costly mistakes but some- times the kids make up for them with hustle and speed. As a team we have good overall team speed." The Vikings marched down the field on their fkst possession only to stop themselves inside the sev- en yard line when quarterback Tom Frederick slipped and fell on an apparent bootleg attempt. "I was disappointed we didn't get in on that first drive but the important thing was we moved the ball and played with intensity," Glenn said. "Derrick Wilson was making people pay for tackling him." Jack Frederick made the Sena- Dave Frededck photo The defensive front of the Cape Henlopen football teaam consists of front row, from left: Lamar Thompson, Ben Eviek and D.J. Hughes. Standing, from left, are: Jack Frederick, Eduardo Saez, Jason Drake and tors' punt return specialist pay when an eschewed fair catch turned into a fair game forced fumble. Several plays later quar- terback Tom Frederick hooked up with tight end Eduardo Saez for a 26 yard touchdown pass. The Ben Evick PAT made the score 7-0 at the half. "We should have put them away in the first half," said Cape's two way tackle D.J. Hughes. "I think Dover was taking us lightly and just figured they could come back and beat us." An errant pitch by Dover quar- terback Brian Ector was scooped up by Cape's defensive end Ron Warner and returned 29 yards for the score. The Evick kick made Ron Werner. the score 14-0. "Other years the players and fans would look for ways that Cape could give away a game," said Cape's Keavney Watson "But that's not happening this year." Cape's final score was set up by another forced Dover fumble as Chris Pagano and Dennis Hughes jarred a ball loose. On a fourth and goal from the 11 yard line quarter- back Tom Frederick, Twin A, led tight end Jack Frederick into the corner of the end zone as Twin B came up with a diving catch for a 20-0 advantage. Dover scored in the fourth peri- od when Brian Ector hit Skeeter Davis with a 34 yard touchdown pass. CODE BLUE AND GOLD - The Viking offense was inside the Dover 10 yard line at the end of the game when coach Glenn instructed the boys to stay in the huddle and let the clock run out... A surprise this early season besides the 3-0 start has been the punting of country boy Ron Warn- er. Warner has just been kicking the air out of the football. The kickers are coached by Bob Andrus .... Viking senior Greg Miller came into the game in the third period when the Vikings went to their "nickle package" and came up with a big third down tackle. Lady Vikings stay in hunt for North title By Susan Frederick Viking hockey nipped Delmar Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 6, 1-0 in a pivotal midseason confronta- tion between unbeaten Delmar (3- 0-2 prior to the game) and once- beaten Cape. The victory earned a first place slot in the Henlopen North for the Vikings who now stand at 6-1-1, while Delmar faces an uphill battle to nudge Indian River out of the top slot in the Henlopen South. The best games play out from whistle to whistle. Only 43 sec- onds after the opening whistle blew, Viking wing Tesha Miller broke through the left side of Del- mar's defense and pushed one into the cage. When the whistle blew to end the game fifty-nine minutes later, it sounded the end of a five- minute stand by Cape's defense against a furious Delmar final attack. Miller's goal and Cape's last stand proved the margin of victory. "This was a very intense game," said Coach Ruth Skoglund after her defense had fought off three Delmar shots in the final minutes of play. "Delmar is a very aggres- sive and skillful team." "The last five minutes of the game were tough. I just kept thinking, 'You can't let one in now, or the goal will count for nothing'," said goalie Lindsay Barlow. Barlow was credited with five saves in the game, two in the final two minutes of play. "This was definitely the best Continued on page 21 Slaughter Neck rule provides a rivalry NECK AND NECK BATrLE . Friday night's homecoming bat- tle between Cape and Milford is not being taken lightly by the Viking football team. "We're more concerned about them than we were about Dover," said D.J. Hughes. "We've had three teams in a row underestimate us and we took it to them. There won't be a problem with us being ready to play. Our coaches won't let that happen." The Cape-Milford game is a long-time but quiet rivalry for Cape because of the Slaughter Neck Rule. Several outstanding Vikings athletes live in "The Neck" which is in shouting dis- tance of Milford High School. "Hey Milford! We're getting on the bus now and traveling 20 miles south because we'd rather be Vikings." The Milford offense will be orchestrated by Greg Wood, the former Delmar Head Coach who has a Division II State Title to his credit. The Milford PEOPLE IN SPORTS Dave Frederick game will be telecast by Storer Cable and can be seen in Sussex County the following Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. on channel 4 or is that Chanel Number 5? The Viking defense has scored two touchdowns in three games and has not allowed a single rushing touchdown. How does 'Dun- nawho's Destroyers' sound for a nickname for the defense after defensive coordinator Brian Don- ahue. BOYHOOD BUDDIES - Hank Draper is the career scoring champ for the Cape Henlopen Lacrosse team. Last year Hank was named first team all-state in Delaware and was selected to several high school All-American teams. Last Friday night Hank was on the sidelines with his magical WBOC mini cam capturing Cape's upset victory over Dover. Oh yea, Hank's dad Tom Draper owns Draper Enter- prises which includes WBOC. Oh yea, Hank lived across the street from the Frederick twins and they . are boyhood buddies but probably don't qualify as boys in the hood cause in downtown Lewes quite often boys may not be boys. Any- way, the 11:20 Friday night spot on WBOC which gives the high school football scores may be the most watched news segment on the lower shore all week long. (Now that Scorchie's Corner is gone.) And so what play do we see? Well, what do you know, it's the Tom Frederick to Jack Freder- ick pass in the endzone filmed by their good friend Hank. Now that's real Sussex County stuff. SWEET NOTHINGS AFTER EIGHT - After eight games of regular season play, Coach Mike Eisenhour's junior varsity hockey squad remains the team to beat in the Henlopen north, having com- piled a 4-0-2 record. The young Vikings have combined to score eight goals against their opponents this season, while their defense has given up none. Wednesday's 2-0 victory over Dover came on the heels of the team's 4-0 blanking of the Laurel Bulldogs on Monday. Sophomore Christina Maull leads the scoring for Cape with three goals on the season, followed by Stephanie Warrington and Kim Smith with two apiece and Cather- ine Cannon with one. Goalies Michelle Campbell and Sherri Swartzel have combined for the shutouts. NASTY GIRLS - The Cape Henlopen hockey girls have rallied and hung tough after a disappoint- ing early season loss to Dover in a game Cape controlled. A game played with sticks with the object of knocking a hard ball into a net demands a nasty attitude when the ball is in the scoring circle. "I know I have an attitude once the game starts," said Cape forward Amy Hopkins. "I concentrate on being aggressive in the circle," said leading goal scorer Tesha Miller. As goalie Lindsay Barlow was leaving for the Delmar game (she stores her helmet in my class- room -Yes, I know I'm a name dropper.) I gave her words of Continued on page 21
