Despite the high intensity of the games and the improvement shown by various members of the squad, Cape was unable to pro- duce any offensive results except for a couple of converted penalty kicks. Wind gusts deterred much of the play during the Polytech game. Despite having the wind advantage, Cape was unable to produce any combinations that could make it past an impregnable defense. Polytech was able to counterattack and placed a finely nized Polytech squad was able to once again put the ball into the back of the Vikings' cage. Meisner later tried to punt a saved shot to the halfbacks WILLIAMS when the ball struck the back of a Polytech play- er and rolled into the goal. With a three goal advantage, Polytech tried to pack the defense and play aggressively. During one play, Polytech fouled a Cape player re- sulting in a penalty kick: Brett Williams was able to calmly de- liver the ball into the lower left ranking in the state rankings.

Despite Williams' penalty shot, Cape could find no way of getting past the defense of Middletown. 'q'hat is a real problem we have. We win the ball and the play stops and we can't continue. We need to continue learning to play as a team and trust one another," said Brian Sentman. Cape's defense was unable to stop the Middletown scoring ma- chine as they found the net five struck ball past goalkeeper Brian corner to finish the game 3-1. more times. The scoring ended Meisner.
