The Cape football squad finished its preseason with an Aug. 30 scrimmage at Indian River, which saw the Vikings improving on both offense and defense.
The Vikings scored 13 points, while the Indians tallied 20.
The offense moved 116 yards on 28 carries. Jaden Davis led the Vikings with 35 yards on 10 carries and caught a pass for 37 yards. Daniel Saez ran for 26 yards on seven carries.
Quarterback Hank D’Ambrogi threw 2-for-4 for 46 yards.
“Hank’s been Hank,” said head coach J.D. Maull. ”Hank’s a competitor. He scares me sometimes when he rolls out. Coaches worry about their quarterbacks when they run. He gets to the edge and he can run.”
Damian McFeaters had a 15-yard reception.
“Our ones hung with their ones, but we have no depth,” Maull said. “I‘m worried about the [Felix] Cruz injury. With our numbers, when one guy gets an injury, it’s like 10.”
Cruz, the only returning starter from last year’s squad, left the scrimmage during the first series with an ankle injury.
”I’m happy with our kids, though,” Maull said. “They did well. We have to get ready for St. Georges now.”
Cape will open against Maull’s former team, St. Georges Tech, Friday, Sept. 6, at Legends Stadium.
