Roundup: Cape Henlopen shuts out Polytech 37-0

Rasheed Woods ran for three touchdowns as Cape Henlopen High blanked Polytech, 37-0, in Henlopen Conference Northern Division football on Friday night.

The contest, originally slated to be played in Woodside, was moved to Lewes because of the heavy rains that hit the area over the last few days.
Cape has an artificial turf field.

Woods scored on runs of 60, five and 38 yards as the Vikings (3-1 overall) scored all 37 of their points in the first half.

Robert Neall added a 20-yard touchdown run with Zachary Dale scoring on a 43-yard pass from Dillon Adams for Cape, which won its second game in a row.

Other games postponed: Only three games involving downstate teams were played on Friday — all on artificial turf — as the other games were rescehdeuled.

Caesar Rodney’s game against St. Georges will now be played today at 2 p.m. with the site being moved to St. Georges, which has artificial turf.

Also today, Sussex Tech will play Sussex Central at 6 p.m.

On Monday, Seaford will host Indian River at 4 p.m. with Lake Forest hosting Woodbridge at 6 p.m. The Lake-Woodbridge game will be broadcast on 105.9 FM with the pregame show starting at 5:30 p.m.

Delaware 1, James Madison 0: In a rematch of last season’s CAA title game, the three-time reigning league champion Blue Hens pulled out the victory over the No. 19 Dukes at the rainy JMU Field Hockey Complex.

As has been the case between Delaware and James Madison in each of the last nine, and 15 of 20 all-time, matchups between the two teams, the victor needed just one goal to earn the win.

Sophomore Lisa Giezeman tipped in the lone goal of the evening in the 17th minute off a penalty corner for No. 10 Delaware (9-2). Classmate Kiki Bink assisted on the play.

The Hens have won four of the last five meetings with the Dukes.
