CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Nov. 19 - Nov. 22, 2004 - 119 SPORTS & OUTDOORS Lady Vikings top Concord; face CR for state title Dan Cook photos Cape's defense has played a key role in the team's quest for a state field hockey champi- onship this season, including this play against Concord where defenders Laura Layton, left, and Jackie Warren clear a shot by Concord's Kelly Fox in front of goalie Ellery Mathews. Cape didn't allow a score until the last two minutes of its 3-1 semifinal victory over the Raiders Nov. 16. By Susan Frederick . Score first then play like you're a goal down. That's the way Cape field hockey coach Amanda Frampton urged her squad to per- form all season. That's the way it bumped Concord on Nov. 16 in the semifinal round of the state tournament by a 3-1 margin. That's the way the team will have to play tonight (Nov. 19) at 7:15 when it faces Caesar Rodney - the only team to beat the Vikings this season - on UD's Rullo Field in Newark for the 2004 state title. "I have such a great group of girls. We've been waiting all year to get out here on this field," said head coach Amanda Frampton. "We were really ready to be here tonight." With identical 17-1-0 records, the Concord Raiders and Cape Henlopen Vikings ran onto the perfect turf of Rullo field, each squad with offensive weapons and defensive walls to get them to the championship round. But it was the triple threat of breakaway for- wards Lisa Williams, Samantha Coveleski and Amanda Haxton that made the Raider defense blink with just under 10 minutes gone in the first period, and an eyelash was all the Vikings need- ed. Williams crossed and Coveleski protected as Haxton caught a pass to flick in the first Cape score. "The first goal really set the tone of the game," said Haxton. "We wanted to score first because it's always easier to play if you know you have an edge. When I saw it crossing, it was a soft pass that I knew I couldn't overplay. "I just kind of guided it to the goal." The Raiders answered by step- ping up their offense. For the next 10 minutes midfielders Maureen and Ellen Meara and forward Kel- ly Fox looked dangerous as they pushed across the midline, and Concord scoring leader Kimmy Schlezes threatened along the left alley. Continued on page 120 Your gift to the Alton Scott fund is tax deductible FEED THE KITTY . I like this idea for a fundraiser. No road race, no car wash, no jumping in the ocean, no spaghet- ti dinner. No T-shirts, no hats, no silent auctions. This is a fundraiser in the memory of Alton Scott, be- cause each spring two $500 schol- arships will be handed out to honor his memory. Your gift to the schol- ALTON SCOTT arship fund is tax deductible. Checks are to be made out to the Alton Scott Scholarship and can be mailed directly to: Balti- more Trust Company, 34383 Car- penter Way, Lewes, De 19958- 4910. Friends of Alton miss him a great deal arid this is a way to hon- or his memory. The hardest part will finding two students who share some of his attributes be- cause Scotty was truly a unique character. WORK TOWARDS FAIL- URE - Why do skinny people come into a gym and go directly to the cardio equipment? You don't need a Ph.D. in psychology to figure that one out. Too skinny can be a condition that feeds on it- self. It is an obsession and a com- fitionid my advice is not to play with these people because you will lose one way or another. You will become a dead-eyed zombie, walking two hours at a time while staying in the same place, your reward being that bob- ble-headed look of those starved for a personality. I coached runners for years and the only time my athletes worked towards failure, discounting cer- tain core subjects in the class- room, was in actual race competi- tion. Don't leave it in practice and make sure that tomorrow you want to come back for more work, I see people walking out of the gym who say, "I'm glad that's over." I would say if a workout is something a person views as neg- ative or a job then just quit before you start and Save some time on the mushy road to a flaccid and squeegee dough boy. SNIPPETS - Congratulations to Cape graduate Katie Levy who finished the recent field hockey season at Monmouth University in New Jersey as the team's lead- ing scorer. Katie was selected to FISPORTS the All-Northeast Conference field hockey team. Katie was team co-captain as her team lost in the conference finals to Rider University. t The Univer- sity of Delaware lost to Maryland in the first round of the NCAA field hockey LEVY tournament 5- 2, but not before Amanda War- rington opened the scoring with an unassisted goal against the na- ti0n's No. 2 ranked team. The tailgate party at Jake's Seafood Restaurant on Route 1 this Sunday (Nov. 21) for the 4:15 Eagles game will benefit the high school wrestling team. My guess isAhat most true Red- skii fans *i!l af h6: deep cOVer because it Could get ugly. Do you think Joe Gibbs, Bill Parcells and Dick Vermeil are re- thinking their decision to come back to the sidelines? Notice that Steve Spurrier didn't follow the lure bacl to Florida. That's because the Redskins are still paying him big money for do- ing nothing. I was at a soccer game and missed the commercial of a naked girl jumping into the arms of Ter- reHOwens. I am not offended, outraged or appalled. I am per- plexed and slightly concerned that the fabric of our culture is unrav- eling like a Haitian baseball. Dumb is now pawned off as clever or funny and please, let's not for- get that Owens can catch footballs and beyond that no one should ever talk to him. There are three teacher/coach types that Cape should go recruit right now and save money on the two tickets to Pittsburgh. That's right, when we need quality teach- ers here at the beach it's off to Pittsburgh for a spring recruiting Continued on page 121 TRIATHLETE- Last Monday night I was looking for a parking SPOt close to the Wesley College playing field, but the only ones available were handicapped. I told photographer Dan Cook, "Please remind me to get a magnetic handicapped plate off the interuet because, even if there this many handicapped people per square mile, what's the chance of them attending a high school soccer double header?" I finally settled on a spot in a barren parking lot that said, "Re- served for U.S. government." I figure being in the 28 percent tax bracket I had already paid for that spot. But last Wednesday, as I made my way into the Pelican Square parking lot under cover of day- light, I kept a safe distance behind a full-sized Buick that had an old- er woman behind the wheel. She was yakking with a cell phone in her left hand, smoking a cigarette with her right hand and she had a handicapped license plate. I let out 20 pounds of air in a deep exasperated sigh. "You no good, common, smok- ing, nasty, digital dimwit! Can you hear me now?" I just say these things to myself because I wouldn't want to hurt anyone's feelings. rl -/-il'lrllllllll-lllllillrl-i ....... ] 1 1 ] - "N.riiiiiiiiTr.rli`F"r.r" ]IllIllIIIIlU[],77117IllIllllIllIII11TillIINIIlIFE771F CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Nov. 19 - Nov. 22, 2004 - 119 SPORTS & OUTDOORS Lady Vikings top Concord; face CR for state title Dan Cook photos Cape's defense has played a key role in the team's quest for a state field hockey champi- onship this season, including this play against Concord where defenders Laura Layton, left, and Jackie Warren clear a shot by Concord's Kelly Fox in front of goalie Ellery Mathews.
