Cape Gazette SPORTS & OUTDOORS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25 - MONDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2013 99 CAPE SOCCER DEFEATS DELMAR FOR EIGHTH SHUTOUT OF THE SEASON DAN COOK PHOTOS THE CAPE HENLOPEN SOCCER TEAM dominated a good Delmar squad 3-0 Oct. 22 at Legends Stadium for the eighth shutout of the season. Cape improved to 12-1 with games remaining at Smyrna and Indian River. The Vikings led 2-0 at the half on goals by Bill Swontek at 3:17 on an assist from Kai Vitella and Zach Swarbrick at 38:00 on a breakaway converting a pass from Max Euler. Euler blasted a cannon shot early at 11:05 in the second half as Swontek picked up an assist. Above, Cape senior forward Miguel Merino-Sanchez takes a shot on goal in the Vikings' 3-0 win over the Wildcats. Senior Elliott Young boots a pass into the box. The Cape Henlopen soccer class of 2014 includes in back (I-r) Griffin Kam- merer, Conor Donohoe, Joseph McMillon, Miguel Merino-Sanchez and Abdi- Cape's Kai as Girardi.

The most pre- dominant catch has been tog along the Outer Wall and over bay and ocean reef sites. I have seen several five-fish limits off charter boats out of Lewes and good numbers caught from pri- vate boats tied off tO the Outer Wall. Occasionally, very large sheepshead have been caught along with the tog. Box crabs seem to be the bait of choice. Now that cold weather has invaded the coast, we should see more rockfish as they move down from New York and New Jersey. I have reports from friends as far north as Rhode Island about the good rockfish action on both bait and lures. The fish have been feeding on sand eels, so the prudent angler will stock up on AVA iigs. The top natural baits have been bunker and clams. I am personally looking for- ward to the opening of sea bass season Friday. Nov. 1. I have high hopes of getting out before the season closes for the winter Dec. 31. Nothing like a few sea bass filets in the freezer before winter sets in. Anglers fishing from the Cape Henlopen Fishing Pier were still catching big spot over the weekend, but this could be over now that fall has finally arrived. The last report I had from the Broadkill River indicated the spot had left for warmer climes. Indian River Inlet is begin- ning to see improved fishing for rockfish on live spot. Once the crowds arrive it will be a real zoo, especially near the Coast Guard Station. Adding to the confusion will be the ongoing dredging operation at the inlet. My advice is to stay clear of the melee and find your fish in another location. Try trolling along the oceanfront or run back around Oak Orchard and fish the bank on the south side of the river.
