86 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, October 9 - October 15, 1998 Cape hockey ties Delmar From The Ca 3e Gazette's Traveler Series By Susan Frederick Cape hockey played through three acts of high drama on Tues- day afternoon, Oct. 6, but had to leave the field without pulling off a grand finale, playing to a 1-1 draw with the Delmar Wildcats after a running battle through two regulation periods and an over- time. The tie was the third this season as the Vikings now stand on a 5-0-3 record. Also undefeat- ed, the Wildcats brought their sea- son totals to 6-0-2. "We were two evenly matched teams. I'm disappointed that we didn't score," said Coach Mike Eisenhour. "Skillwise, we played well. But I saw some things that we need to do better. Communi- cating on the field is something we're going to look at." The first half of the opening pe- riod saw each team probe the opponent's de- fense, with Meagan Pfaar 15locking out Amanda Hop- kins after Lucy Short penetrat- HOPKINS ed ,ell inside the Delmar 25- yard line to feed Hopkins. Viking captain Angela Griffith stole the ball from Carrie Brittingham on Delmar's first possession and fed to Emily Walls, who streaked down the right alley, only to be stopped by Wildcat halfback Jena Workman. Play seesawed from goal to goal for the next several minutes until Walls sprinted along the sideline and sent ]t to Lindsay King, who fed it to Amanda Hop- kins. Cape was up 1-0 at the 18:00 mark. Halfback Griffith stopped two quick retaliatory shots by Delmar in the next minute of play. "We're now getting to play better defense day by day," said senior captain Griffith. "I thought we did well against an aggressive team." Cape Worthy Continued from page 85 sports is that everybody loves everybody. The test comes in big games or under adverse condi- tions. "Last year against Caesar Rod- ney I knocked down a linebacker and O.J. [Wilson] scored," Wor- thy said. "I like blocking for the other backs." Worthy has ambi- tions of playing for the University of Delaware. "I try to set an ex- halfbacks Griffith, Rachel Meluney (captain), Buffy Jack- ewicz and Cortney Reihm stopped five Ddmar'shbts in the first half. At the 12:I5 mark Walls nailed a shot at the pelmar goal that stuck like velero to the upright for a frozen second before Delmar goalie Kelli Chamberlain was able to kick it clear. It was the last Cape offensive highlight of the first half. A corner at the 5:40 mark gave Delmar the daylight it needed to even the score as Brittany Elliot scored off an Erin Budd pass to Cape's front.door. The Viking de- fense had to hold on in the waning minutes of play as the fired-up Delmar squad sent two screamers towards the goal off hit-ins from the right and the left sidelines. Eisenhour got heroic efforts not only from his halfbacks but also from his midfielders - Bil!ieJo Brittingham (captain), Shannon Colbourne and Lucy Short. Viking goalie Zina Hense saw action early in the second half, rejecting a shot by Brit- tingham in the BRITrlNGHAM first minute of second half play. Delmar contim ued to pressure the goal, holding the edge on time of possession for the first half of the period and drawing seven comers. "I think Delmar was an under- estimated team by some people, but not by the team," said Walls. "Coach Eisenhour prepared us for a tough game, so we were expect- ing it. They play a passing game, which is the strongest kind of game. They play a lot like us. A good passing team is hard to beat." Both teams had their chances in the seven-on-seven overtime peri- Continued on page 87 I ample for the younger kids, to show leadership and stay out of trouble and do good in school," Worthy said. This season Worthy has rushed for more than 400 yards and scored 10 touchdowns, while playing only the first half in three of four games. "I want us to win the states and to rush for over 1,000 yards," Worthy said. If the "Raw Dogs" along the offensive line will create the seams, Mr. North and South will realize his dreams. Thank the Lord that Cape's got Worthy! Football Continued from page 84 Notes: Tim Cannon was ejected from the game just before half- time and wil] miss the Sussex Tech contest. Timmy was on his back and kicked in the direction of a Cen- tral lineman, after getting his leg untangled and brought back from maximum pain threshold. Nick Schaffer had another strong game for Cape, picking off an interception and punting the football. O.J. Wilson got doctor's clear- ance to play and may see limited action against Sussex Tech. Hanging out with Mayan sailors and pirates The Felici family of Sea Colony West in Bethany Beach took a break from winter in the spring of 1998 to explore the tropical islander Isla Mujeres a few miles off Cancun along the eastern coast of Mexico. Isla Mujeres once served as a refuge for Mayan sailors and later for infamous pirates who added an element of terror to the gentle warmth of the Caribbean waters. "Here we are catching up on some local Sussex news prior to a swim with dolphins," wrote Felici patriarch Ernie Felici Sr. "Mexico was great fun but we all got a little homesick after reading the Gazette. Yes Dorothy, there is no place like home, especially when home is on the Delaware shore." Shown (l-r) are Jacqui, Emie Jr., Joseph and Ernie Felici Sr. Emie's wile, Maryanne, snapped thephoto. The Cape Gazette on the scene in Morton, Illinois. Bill Sharp and his nephew Josh catch up on Cape Gazette news in Morton, II1., during their visit to the Third Annual Punkin' Chuckin' competition at the Morton Pumpkin Festival. They were the guests of the Litwiller family. Rod Litwiller was captain of the 1997 Aludium Q36 Pumpkin Modulator team that placed second in the World Cham- pionship Punkin' Chunkin' competition. In 1996 the Aludium team won the world cham- pionship and sweetened their take by $1,000 when they punched a hole in the Preston Ford frog's mouth (see Josh?) with a well- aimed shot from 1,000 feet.
