Tiara Duffy exploded with four hits including two home runs and a double to lead Cape softball to a 17-0 shutout over Delmarva Christian May 15 on the Vikings' field. Duffy also scored four runs and knocked in five RBIs to lead the offensive effort as the Vikings' bats came alive for 15 hits.
Riley Shields was the winning pitcher for the Vikings as Hailey Passwaters took the mound in relief in the fifth inning.
