The Cape boys' lacrosse team cashed in at Dover May 2 with a 20-6 win for the team's eighth straight victory, but it's time to make a balloon payment on the back-loaded schedule.

The Senators of coach John Coveleski dropped their fifth straight game.

Cape is 9-2, unbeaten in Delaware after early season losses coming at Bullis School 10-6 and Severn School 10-7.

The Vikings now put feet to the oscillating fan with a Wednesday, May 7 game at Caesar Rodney followed by a Friday, May 9 home contest versus Tower Hill then go on the road to face Salesianum at Baynard Stadium Monday, May 12.

‘We played them tough in the first half (7-5 Cape), even leading at the quarter 3-2, but they just have too many guns and too much firepower," said Dover assistant Ron Allen. “Cape is a very impressive team.”

Cape was credited with an unheard-of 63 shots on goal with Todd Keen leading the way with a career-best 7 goals. He was backed up by Michael Hopkins 4, Blake Mann 3, Luke Benson 2, and single goals from Hunter Daily, Eric Stancofski, Kyle Orton and Christian Prestipino.

Cape assists came from Benson with 5, Mann 4 and singles from Hopkins, Keen, Orton and Matt Lally.

Dover goals were by Asani Edmonds with 2, Kobe Morris 2, Eric Davis and Dylan Handel.

Cape goalie saves came from Grant Gillan, 9, and Chris Argo 2.

Dover goalie Detione Jones had 22 saves.
