Sept. 11, 2022 — Delaware 4, Maryland 0, wary eyes 44

This weekend’s Bi-State Challenge at Lewes Cape Henlopen (Del.) was a great showcase of hockey showing off good players and teams.

The outcome was very heavily tilted towards the two Delaware teams in the competition. The host Vikings beat Pocomoke (Md.) 5-0 on Friday, then followed up with a 4-0 win over Severna Park (Md.).

Delmar, like Cape Henlopen a DIAA state champion, eased to a 9-1 win over Severna Park on Friday, then bested Pocomoke 8-0 yesterday.

Delmar and Cape Henlopen, of course, were taking furtive glances at each other, since each team is the benchmark for each other when it comes to playing championship-level field hockey.

These two sides have had some heated battles in the last decade, and last year, Delmar won two games against Cape, both by 2-1 scorelines.

The teams will be meeting in Henlopen Athletic Conference play on Oct. 6 at Delmar, and could very well meet again in the conference championship game the first week of November.

Should be some awesome hockey coming from these two sides.
