April 16, 2018

Cape girls’ lacrosse beat an athletic Archmere team at Champions Stadium 18-5 April 14 by utilizing depth and diversity of scoring, as 13 different players scored a goal and 10 of 18 goals were packaged with an assist.

The Vikings improved to 6-0 on the season, while Archmere dropped to 3-2.  

“Our strength is our team speed and running different midfield and attack lines, and we don’t look for one or two people to score,” said Cape coach Lindsey Eichner.

The draw was a battle all game long, with Annie Judge going against Caroline Donovan. Cape won the first face-off, and 11 seconds later, Alia Marshall sprinted right down Broadway for the game’s first goal. Just 10 minutes into the game, the Vikings led 7-1, and with the field temperature over 80 degrees, the Vikings are just a hard squad to catch.

The Auks are coming off a 14-1 season, where they lost in the semifinals to Saint Mark’s 14-13. Two seasons ago, they were 12-3.

“They are in the mix and will be a force in the playoffs,” Eichner said. “We are just working to get better and stay healthy.”

Goals were scored by Alia Marshall with three; Katie Frederick, Lola Messick and Mallory Jones with two each; and single goals by Emily Monigle, Lindsay Monigle, Anna Stancofski, Victoria Lockwood, Mary Grace Cannon, Annie Judge, Riley Spinelli, Meredith Lockwood and Kaylie Truitt.

Cape assists came from Monigle with three, Marshall with two, and Emily Monigle, Talbot Buck and Christina Benson with one each.

Cape outshot Archmere 27-13.  

Vienna Iacona had eight saves, while Maura Smeader tallied eight saves for the Auks.

Archmere goals were by Kate Olsen, Caroline Donovan and Sydney Yanick.

The Vikings will host Smyrna at 6:15 p.m., Wednesday, April 18, then play at Worcester Prep at 1 p.m., Saturday, April 21.

The Cape JV team defeated Archmere 17-3. Cape goals were scored by Riley Keen with six, Haley Craig and Caroline Maull with three, Alexandra Best with two, and Kathryn Knarr, Kayla Burkentine and Sky Dunmeyer with one each. Assists were Craig with six, Keen with two and Lindsay Rambo with one.
