m  Cape soccer team falls to Archmere in state quarterfinals By Dave Frederick Soccer is a game that can come down to pace and space. Phrases like "nicely done" and "good an- ticipation" often describe "action" that seems genteel when com- pared to American football. Archmere was a sweet soccer team. The Auks All-State goalie Drew Healy even wore a pink long sleeve shirt. He was tall and angular and looked confident. Cape is best with the dial turned all the way up. The Vikings pos- sess frenzied athleticism. They cannot play like Archmere - it is not their game. "We came out in the second half leading 2-1 and started worrying too much about the game instead of just putting them away said," Corey Schab. "We came out with our heads in the clouds more worried about getting another shot at Caesar Rodney instead of taking care of Archmere," said defender Bo Pratt. Left-footed Jim DiTaranto sent a high-bender moving left to right over the arms of Cape goalie Steve Fabian and into the net. The score came at 21:45 into the half. "That goal was sick," said Fabi- an. "You should have seen that goal from where I was standing." Corey Schab got Cape on the board with 14:07 left in the half with a nice left-footed chip shot over Healy's head off a through pass from Nat Gaffney. Tom Gro- gan went through his progression of extra gears going down the middle and beating Healy with 5:33 left in the first half as Cape led 2-1. Cape came out in the second half and Archmere began pressing the action. Steve Hall scored at the 28 minute mark followed quickly by a bad clear that landed on the dangerous left foot of Di- Taranto who sent it back into the net for a 3-2 Archmer lead. The Auks inflated the cushion of comfort to 4-2 on another Hall goal off a rebounded pipe shot. Grogan made it close scoring unassisted with 3:10 left to play. The Vikings applied pressure in the final minutes, but could not send home the tying goal. "We had lapses to start the sec- ond half and it ended up costing us the game," said head coach Randy Redard.
