Cape boys’ lacrosse reloading and reconfiguring

Vikings scrimmage three good teams under tough conditions
March 9, 2020

Cape boys’ lacrosse went from the first day of practice March 2 to scrimmaging three top teams in the mid-Atlantic region March 7.  

A bright, sunshiny day buffeted by relentless northwest winds put players in full sweats for games of full-field lacrosse. 

Cape played the Hun School in Legends Stadium, then walked over to Champions Stadium to get a dose of Malvern Prep before returning to Legends to play Garnet Valley. 

Severna Park was also at the scrimmage, but the Vikings didn’t face them in the rotation. 

It was a good day just six days into the spring season if the Malvern scrimmage is extracted. The Vikings just couldn’t get the ball, and the Friars can light it up on the offensive end. It was a good practice game for goalie Baxter Travers and his cadre of long pole protectors. 

Cape played its starters for only a half in the Hun and Garnet Valley scrimmages. Everyone dressed for play day got to run some reps on the field. 

Cape will next scrimmage the Shipley School at home at 3 p.m., Saturday, March 14.
