The Blue Hens countered with. "No QB ! No Cry !" Hostra's only miscues the entire afternoon were incomplete cart- wheels by some of their would-be acrobatic cheerleaders which brought loud and derisive cheers from the Delaware fans which proved only one thing - Delaware fans were watching the Hofstra cheerleaders because it was more entertaining than watching the game. "This is not some big, defining moment for a football team," said Delaware football coach Tubby Raymonff. 'That quarterback [Rocky Butler] came in here and threw the bah as good as anyone ever has in this stadium and that includes our own guys. That was one fine offensive football team we faced.out there • • Footballs filled the air like fly- " ingsquirrels'as-Butler connected Dave Frecledck photo Delaware running back Butter y (2) plows through the Hofstra defense Oct. 13 for the Blue Hens' first score in a 39-14 loss to the Pride. ond period after an interception of a Sam Postlethwait pass giving the Pride possession at the 37 yard line. It was "Dimmie whatever you gimmie" interspersed with slant passes to Charlie Adams and noon, made Butler look like War- ten Moon. Butler hit wide receiv- er Adams with a perfect strike for a 45-yard touchdown,pass just be- fore halftime. The Pride lead of 26-7 looked insurmountable, like climbing Mt.

"We've got a schedule to play and we want to win the rest of our games," Raymond said. "We are not a bad football team." Blue Hen starter Postlethwait left the game in the second quarter with a tricep contusion in his throwing arm and, unlike General MacArthur, he did not return. Butch Patrick of Delaware had his best day as a Blue Hen, rush- ing for 123 yards on 15 carries. The Delaware quarterbacks, backup Rob Violante and Postlethwait, combined for only 36 yards passing on just 12 at- tempts. Two balls were intercept- ed. "Our running game was out- standing, but I'm-really disap- pointed in our pass protection," said Hen's offensive coordinator Ted Kempski, missing the point that a team can ,longer win in the Atlantic 10 without successfully throwing the ball downfieid. Postlethwait, a young man of high character who •reiterates in every interview, "I go Out every game and do the best I can." may find that not good enough for dis- gruntled Delaware fans who have seen the-worst ,offense in the.mod- em history of the storied football" program.

If you' like watching offense this is your kind of football game. Read and react: reflect.ions on a long football weekend By Dave Frederick HIGH SCHOOL - It's a Martha & the Vandellas weekend and so is the rest of the schedule, Nowhere to run to baby... nowhere to hide! The big game is Sussex Central at Dover with the Senators looming as a favorite be- cause of Pierre Bowers. Bowers and Jason Lily weren't enough to derail Central last year and they won't get them this Friday night, either. Central looked slightly unin- spired against Cape and must have been looking through•toDover. Hey George- town! Been Dover'? Cape is at Sussex Tech. Viking coach Bill Geppert doesn't feel the pressure of eight winning seasons in a row by coaches Glenn and Donahue. but he will if I keep mentioning it! The Viking can't afford to lose this game. but the Ravens are closing the gap on all the established programs in the Northern Division. Cape has the talent edge in this game. but I don't know yo! Ravens should have beat- en Cape last season. Caesar Rodney is at Salesianumwhich is a game the-Riders should win. but it's al- ways ,unnerving when your team has to wait for the light tg:chang e to get to the Baynard Stadium field, Lake Forest at Woodbridge after "The Bridge" was upsetby Laurel. Take Lake ,which has a showdown at Deimar the fol- lowing week. Newark, the state's l:aest team until some- one proves differentia,, chews up AT du Pont, McKean, Christiana and Delcastle be- fore running into William Penn on Nov. 16 to close out the season.. Back in 1987 a Rob Schroeder-coached team on which I was the defensive coordi- nator beat Newark on the road 32-0 behind two touchdown passes from quarterback Dave Frederick. an interception return by Eddie Braswell and 100 yards rushing by Eddie Gaines. And right guard Jeremy Pollard lands surfing on the sideline as the band played "Surfing Safari." It is a favorite memory of mine. PRO FOOTBALL - Philly is at New York Monday night and nobody in their right mind is picking the Eagles to win ex- cept for Donovan McNnaab's mother. Watch New York's No. 77 right tackle Luke Petitgout out of Georgetown. Luke is a player and has proven himself to be worth a first round draft pick. Baltimore is at Cleveland and will have their hands full with the revitalized Browns of coach Butch Davis. Carolina is at'Washington on Sunday. The most interesting thing the Redskins can do is go for a winless season. St. Louis at N.Y Jets is a game the Jets may win. Pittsburgh at Tampa Bay is a huge game for the Steelers who could jump out 4-I with a victory. Green bay at Minnesota at 4:15 Sunday should be an entertaining game to watch as you wait for the SUnday night basebatl playoffs. COLLEGE FOOTBALL The -Delaware football was out-stronged, out- raced, out-coachedanO out-hUstled last Sat- urday emphatically losing to an inspired Hofstra team 39-14. Salisbury Stme is at Wesley next Satur- day afternoon (Oct. 27)in the Cape Gazette featured game of the week. Next week it's back to Baltimore and Philadelphia: Auburn hates Florida and Steve Spurrier more than they hate Alabama and the leg- end of the Bear. Last Saturday the Tigers added a few more facial tics to the obses- sive-compulsive disordered disturbance on coach Spurrier's face. Fresno State still undefeated and ranked No. 8 in the country. Forty-eight props to them! Maryland gets erved up Duke and will go to 7-0 befi, " :veling to Florida State.
