The Cape girls' soccer team secured its fourth straight victory with a 3-1 win over Dover May 6 at home. The Vikings improved to 8-3-1 on the season to put themselves in good position for the postseason.

Dover struck first, as Kerri Lussier scored just seven minutes into the game. But the Senators' lead didn't last long. Mallory McDonald knocked home a pass from Maddi Smith just over five minutes later to tie the game. Then just before halftime, Shelby Thomas found the back of the net to give Cape the lead for good.

Thomas tallied another goal at the 64-minute mark to give the Vikings a cushion.

Cape outshot the Senators 6-4 and held a 4-3 advantage in corner kicks. Barratto secured five saves in the win.

The Vikings hosted Delmarva Christian May 8 and will be back on the pitch Friday, May 9, when they travel to Lake Forest (6-3-1). Cape caps off the regular season Wednesday, May 14, on the road at Smyrna (7-5).
