The Force had the momentum and continued to press forward in the opening seconds of overtime, but the ball quickly reversed field and went to McVey, who fought off a defender and tapped it to Sterhng for the winning goal. "The girl trapped me, so I came around and reversed it farther out where [Sterling] was," McVey said. "She was able to hit it in."

DIAA FIELD HOCKEY TOURNAMENT: CAPE HENLOPEN 1, DELMAR 0

ViMngs secure three-peat
Cape edges Delmar in final for third year in a row
The News Journal

By Brad IMycrs

DOVER - Cape Henlopen did it again. The Vikings edged Dehnar 1-0 in the championship game of the DIAA Field Hocliey Tournament on Saturday at Dover High for their third consecutive state title. All three times, Cape had to beat Delmar in the final. A l l three times, it has been excruciatingly close. The Vikings ran their in-state winning streak to 51 games. The Wildcats have lost only six times in the last three years, all to Cape Henlopen - three in the regular season, three in the championship game. "It's hard to believe. I'm still shaking," Vikings coach Kate Windett said. "The whole game, I was shaking. [Delmar] is such a good team. It's hard to beat them six times in a row. It's mibelievable." Two years ago, the Vikings won 3-2 in the title game. Last year, Cape won 2-1. This year, it was 1-0. "The stars just aren't aligned for us in the state finals, I guess," Delmar coach Jodi HoUamon said. "I don't know. We just are unlucky, I guess. We played great hockey." Both teams are used to generating around 20 shots per game, but they knew that wouldn't happen Saturday. Cape (180-1) managed five shots, while Delmar (17-2) took three. The only one that got through came in the 39th minute, when Vikings junior Sam Broaclhurst drew the defense's attention and passed to sophomore Itess Bernheimer

Cape's Marlee McGlnness tries to maneuver around Delmar goalie Tressie Windsor during Saturday's championship game, GARY eMEiGnn-HE NEWS JOURNAL for an easy score. Delmar's best scoring chance came in the 23rd minute, when Cape goalkeeper Katie Kolobielski sprawled to stop two shots by Booter Ellis and Amy Wilson off of a penalty comer. "As long as we stopped the comer, I knew that we were going to win," Kolobielski said. "I stay on my feet when I know that it's right, but I knew that I had to dive to save the ball and I had to do whatever it took to keep the ball out of the net." Ellis was dominant in the midfield area, but Tiara Duffy and the rest of the Cape defenders did their best to keep the ball out of the circle. "We just knew that they would go to Booter a lot, and she is really powerful up the middle," Windett said. "We tried to shut her down and not give them comers." The Vikings did allow a comer in the final seconds, giving Delmar one more chance to tie it. But Bernheimer mshed out to stop EUis at the top of the circle, and that was it. The Wildcats' roster is dotted with 10 frustrated seniors. Their coach was proud of their effort - not just Saturday, but all through their high school careers. "They have nothing to put their heads down about," Hollamon said. "There are a lot of girls that wish to get to this spot every single year, and they've been there for the past three. "Sometimes, I think it has almost started to be taken for granted that we're supposed to be here. It's their hard work and the things they do in the offseason, that's what puts us here."

The other eight firstteamers represent eight different schools: Caravel's Jackie Gillen, Wilmington Friends' Danielle Kuller, Mount Pleasant's Kate Walker, Padua's Caitiin Cooke, St. Georges' Katie Sterling, Sussex Tech's Torrie Huk, Tatnall's Shay Cannon and Ursuline's Laura Hurff.

"I guess when there were big games that coaches saw that I try really hard and I play well when I have to and step up."

"I've never seen a defender get it. But she's not a typical defender," sajd Windett, the Cape Henlopen coach. "It's hard to miss her. She's not a small girl you're going to miss. She's a force.
