The Golden Knights have won 1"3 in a row versus Cape, if that is possible. A Cape win has to go back to 1998, the year the Vikings made the state tourna- ment with a record of 9-1. The game used to close out the season, but the rivalry was so intense, it was moved to mid- I kind'of miss those last-game, final-whistle throwdowns. The all-time best was 1988, a fracas that went two rounds and caused Central coach Charlie Hudson, still recovering from a horrific car accident, to say to me, "I've never been attacked by a player before."
