Wilson dur- ing the third quarter of the Tuesday, Dec. 8 basketball game at Seaford High. Wrestlers Continued from page 81 each other in the early rounds and giving byes to known and proven wrestlers. These methods ensure that some guys can't influence the out- come of an event and negate the hard work, hopes and goals of some great kids. It is unfortunate to report that this is also creeping into other competitions, such as cross coun- try, tennis, golf and other mano-a- mano events. These sports are in- dividual sports, where there is no one and/or no place to blame loss- es. Why are grown men taking credit for the wins and creating false environments in which to compete? As Sherlock used to say to Wat- son, "The game's afoot." In this, the gamesters are asses. It is a pleasure to be associated with coach Mitchell, because he doesn't play these games at our tournament. Shame on those who do. Winning in Smyrna in the Ban- tam division was Dan McDonald, 60, with a second, and Kyle Kaminski,70, first. In the Midget division winners were Connor McDonald, first, Midget 55; Josh Weldin, third, Midget 65; Brandon Hazel, first, Midget 70; and Michael Voss, first, Midget, 90. Bobby Hopkins took a first at Junior 85, and Kyle Hopkins took a second at Junior 103. I might add that Hopkins had to move up eight pounds, because there was no competition in his weight class. He beat two other opponents before losing in the fi- nals. Basketball Continued from page 79 varsity level." Wilson, who is ice out of the bucket, flipped a turnover to a time-out, while sliding backwards on the seat of his pants. "O.J. sees the court and under- stands the game better than any- body out there," Waples said. "Somi of the things he does by in- stinct are amazing." Cape returned to the court with less than 2 minutes remaining in the game, where Thompson was caught and fouled. Thompson converted a free throw and Davis followed with a layup as Cape led 47-40 with a minute remaining. Seaford's Andre Mathews, who plays like a bulldog and requires the same rest periods, kept scoring inside for Seaford, but Scott and Thompson iced the game for Cape at the free-throw line for the 50-48 victory. FREDCAM - Wilson brought the crowd to its feet twice in the second hall once on a breakaway dunk attempt that was just "a little low" and another on a driving, air- borne, full-circle-spin move that resulted in a soft, underhanded finger roll into the basket. Seaford played a slow and de- liberate offense, but the Jay's don't appear to have much to compliment Mathews who is not an easy person to compliment if you know his history. Sheehan, Scott and Dominique Hack give Cape three, good, big men to play inside, but it was ob- vious that Cape misses Julius Haz- zard, who was watching the game from the stands. Hazzard, as previously reported, is suspended from school; when asked when he would return, he just politely shrugged his shoul- ders. Dover coach Ronnie Allen, a 25-year veteran of the Rehoboth Beach Patrol, lost his home opener to Sussex Tech, 77-49, as Brian Polk scored 30 points for the Ravens. Basketball fans at Dover can be brutal critics, and "Mongo" Allen may be in for a long season. The co-head coaching experiment at Indian River, featuring Jerry Pe- den and Pat Kelly, unveiled to an inauspicious opening Dec. 8, los- ing to Lake Forest, 69-43. Sounds like there's trouble in River City. Congratulations to Re- hoboth's B.J. Joseph, the head coach of the Laurel Bulldogs, for winning his season opener, 60-52, over Smyrna. Cape transfer George Miller did not appear in the lineup for the Ea- gles. McDonald wins at Northeast tournament Connor McDonald, 9, won first place in the 10-and-under, 50- pound weight class, defeating four of the Baltimore and Wilmington area's best wrestlers. All four matches were decisive victories; the closest was an 8-0 victory against Jacob Pennington of the Renegades. After sweeping the Midget 50 class, McDonald entered the 12- and-under 55-pound division. He queaked out two narrow victo- ries, defeating Ryan Huff, 8-6, and Hunter Doon, 3-2, while los- ing in the finals to Maurice Flem- ing, 15-9. McDonald was inter- viewed by "USA Wrestling" magazine and will likely ap- pear in the De- cember issue. He is a mem'- ber of the Re- hoboth MCDONALD Wrestling Yel- low Jackets, coached by Benny Mitchell. Anyone who knows an intelligent, athletic kid who likes to compete should take him or her to Rehoboth Elementary School, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6 p.m. ,, A, lllMI ..ioi,t'rlom_..,,..EU "94 ,,,,,,+ x,, ?:: ....... ,8,"'99"" "97 Ford $16.IPS "97 Chevy -lSO0 X-tab, $18,99S "9O Mercury Grand SPECIAL $5,995 "94 Olds utlese kwa JUST ARSlVED! 90 Ford F*ISO SPECIAL $7,985 "94 MJtm4dhdd MVFM Cmsene $7,99s "96 Chrlr S-IO p/Ill 15 Pkg. $7,987 "911 Chevy S*iO P/U $1 3,98S P/lJ t,o.. &/C O. $1S,987 302-422-3041 BUS.
