The Cape Henlopen freshmen football team faced sloppy conditions and a pumped up Dover squad and committed six turnovers in the 18-6 loss Oct. 9 at Legends Stadium.

"It's hard two come back when you commit six fumbles in the game," said coach Harry Hudson. "But, you take away two long pass plays they made and we're in the game."

Cape started slow in the contest by committing three turnovers in the first quarter, finding themselves down 18-0 before halftime.

"We shot ourselves in the foot, making missed tackles and turnovers," Hudson said. "The team played 2 1/2 great quarters on defense."

Erik-Stephane Stancofski scored for the Vikings on a 35-yard touchdown run.

"Eric made a real nice run," said Hudson. "Raiquan (Mosley) made a great interception in the second half."

"We have a bye next week," said coach Bo Gooch. "We should get back on track for Smyrna and finish the season strong."

The Vikings will host Smyrna Wednesday, Oct. 23 at Legends Stadium. Kick off is at 4 p.m.
