Jaguars boys’ lacrosse upsets Cape 10-9

May 15, 2018

The Cape boys’ lacrosse team went from upside to downside in a pair of 10-9 games two days apart, winning at Caesar Rodney May 9, then falling at Appoquinimink May 11.

Cape is 10-4 on the season with a home game remaining versus Wilmington Friends at 6 p.m., Tuesday, May 15. Friends comes into Cape with a record of 10-3. The Quakers lost to Cape in last year’s semifinals 16-7 after beating Cape in the regular season 10-8.

“We dug a hole early with a lack of discipline, and at this time of the year, you also have to play consistent lacrosse,” said coach Mark D’Ambrogi. “We have good kids on this team; it’s time to get ready for Wilmington Friends and the tournament.”

The game was tied at 4-4 at halftime, but the Vikings endured two unsportsmanlike penalties followed penalty calls in the first half, which had them playing two men down twice.

Cape owned a 34-17 advantage in shots on goal, but they were outscored in the second half 6-5, including 3-0 in the final quarter.

Cape goals were scored by Andre Currie, Luke D’Ambrogi and Aarin Burton with two each, and single goals from Blake Gipko, Jack Dennis and Jake Brown.

Jaguars goals were scored by Connor Garrison with four, Brendon Massey with three and Campbel Garrison, Nick Boinovych and Hunter Wolhar with single goals.
