Cape Henlopen Head Coach Patrick Kilby says the two teams match up well against each other.
“We understand they have such a championship pedigry instilled in their program and we respect that,” Kilby said. “We are high level competition for them, we are going into this game with a winning mindset.”
Kilby is confident in his team and confident that their preparation all season will pay off. With handfuls of strong players, Kilby says there won’t necessarily be any individual players on the field that will stand out above the rest.
“Based on our preparation, everyone has their job to get done, we have a game plan set,” Kilby said. “We have been working the past three days to implement it and if everyone does their job well, we will come off as the winning team.”
Although the team is confident, they will have to play their best game to come out on top. Kilby says the main item the team will need is patience, especially when Salesianum has the ball.
“They like to pocess the ball for minutes at a time,” Kilby said. “We need to be organized and understand what they’re doing–look to cut the field in half, lock the ball in, win it and go to goal.”
If Cape wins this match, they will play in the State Championship game Saturday at Smyrna.
