The intermittent rain that plagued most of the Cape Tech boys varsity soccer team’s Nov. 5 MIAA Div. 4 South tournament game stopped long enough for Paulo Loureiro to size up his free kick, the one he’d told his coach he wanted when Ivan Popov put him in during the final minutes of the second overtime. This was his team’s make-it-or-break-it moment and he didn’t want to let them down. As the official whistled,...

HARWICH – Falling to Sturgis East with a final score of 2-0 after winning the Mayflower League wasn't necessarily how Cape Tech head coach Ivan Popov wanted things to go, but the loss didn't diminish his pride in his team's efforts, or their determination as the Crusaders went on to defeat Upper Cape Tech 4-0 the next day, officially becoming league champs in their first season with Mayflower Small. The Crusad...

Let's take a moment to talk about Cape Tech girls soccer. It takes a minimum of seven players for regulation game play. How many players has the Cape Tech girls team had on its roster for the majority of its 2019 season? Seven. Since I can see y'all doing the math, let me break it down for you by reviewing one of the team's last games of the season, played Oct. 25 against Upper Cape Tech. First, huge praise to...

HARWICH – There's a saying that Saturdays are for the boys, but Oct. 5 didn't prove to be a promising Saturday for the Cape Tech football team, which fell 45-8 to South Shore Vocational. With team numbers greatly diminished due to injuries and other issues, the Crusaders were no match for the sizable Vikings in spite of some decent passing and ground play during a decidedly chippy game. It took Cape Tech un...

PLEASANT LAKE — There’s never been a shortage of community support for Cape Cod Regional Technical High School, but thanks to its new charitable foundation, there’s a new channel for that support. The foundation will help students by providing scholarships and “toolships,” helping support graduates who are on their way to college or full-time employment. Each year, the school and its supporters award between $...

HARWICH – The effort was there, but when the Cape Tech boys varsity soccer team hosted Upper Cape Tech on Sept. 26, the goals weren't, as both teams played to a scoreless tie in Mayflower League action. The Crusaders—who have been having a stellar 2019 season with the exception of one early season loss—dominated much of game play, consistently moving the ball into scoring territory, but neither team was able t...

HARWICH – When the Cape Tech girls soccer team fell 5-0 to Sturgis East on Monday afternoon, some might have chalked it up to just another loss for the Crusaders. Not head coach Matthew Theodore. For him, it was a sign of improvement. Theodore, in his first season with the Crusaders, said that in the past the teams lost by scores of 10-0 or more. This season, in spite of a decidedly younger team, many of whom ...

HARWICH – When Cape Tech quarterback Robin Crawford was being taken off the field on a stretcher after suffering an injury at the start of the fourth quarter of the Crusaders Sept. 7 game against Bristol-Plymouth, he had one request for his team: “You gotta win this one, boys!” Win it they did, coming away with a 30-28 victory in their 2019 home opener, and what a roller-coaster ride it was. “It was a wild gam...

PLEASANT LAKE — Compared to the heavy political, financial and legislative lifting needed for the Cape Cod Tech school building project, hoisting a several-thousand-pound steel beam in place for the traditional topping-off ceremony Thursday was clearly the easy part of the job. State Sen. Julian Cyr spoke about special legislation he pursued with ...

HARWICH – In a game of back-and-forth baseball that went into extra innings, both the Monomoy and Cape Tech teams were chomping at the bit to claim victory. Unfortunately for the Sharks, the hard-hitting Crusaders clinched a 6-5 win in the bottom of the ninth on April 25 in Cape and Islands League play. “It was a great baseball game, back and forth all game long,” said Monomoy head coach Steve Porter. “I figur...

HARWICH – It wasn't the outcome the Cape Cod Tech boys lacrosse team wanted when they faced Cape Cod Academy on Monday, but when the clock drained on an 11-10 loss to the visiting Seahawks, all the Crusaders could do was look to the next game. “It's a team we should have beaten,” said Cape Tech head coach Pat Lawson. “We didn't come out ready to play and they did.” The Crusaders started off strong in the Ca...

HARWICH – If ever there was a week to defeat the Rams, this was it. Not only did the Patriots win their sixth Super Bowl, in Harwich on Monday night it was the Cape Tech Crusaders who bested the Upper Cape Tech Rams in a thrilling 59-55 victory. While the Crusaders might not get any rings as a result of the win, they certainly deserve bragging rights after their tireless performance, which included clawing bac...

ORLEANS – There was a charge in the atmosphere around the home team bench of the Cape Cod Furies. The energy was nearly electric, the chatter among players intense and determined, peppered with “let's do this!” and “c'mon ladies, we've got this!” even though a single goal had yet to be scored. Then came the third period between the Furies and the Vineyarders and a final score of 3-1 in favor of the home team, ...

HARWICH – Chenoa Peters lit up the scoreboard to the tune of a game-high 19 points on Jan. 17 when the Cape Tech Crusaders defeated the Monomoy Sharks in girls basketball action. The majority of Peters' points came from well-aimed three-pointers, five in total, that helped the Crusaders earn a key Cape and Islands League victory. Following close behind Peters was teammate Taylah Gurley with 15 points. The e...

HARWICH – The Cape Tech Crusaders struck first, but it was the Monomoy boys who cruised to a commanding 63-42 victory on Jan. 17, keeping them undefeated in the Cape and Islands League. A pair of three-pointers from Jack Derosier and Tyjon Barrett led the Crusaders to an early lead in the first of two matches between the teams this season, but the lead was short-lived as the Sharks awoke ready to do battle. ...
