The Cape boys’ lacrosse team topped Indian River 24-1 in the opening round of the DIAA state tournament May 24 at Cape’s Legends Stadium.

The Vikings took 47 shots in the game and were ahead 13-0 before IR’s only goal was scored.

Junior Jack Schell cranked the rock for seven goals. Senior Luke Burton tallied four scores. Mike Guenther and Thomas Gibbs each hit for two. Joe Coveleski, C.J. Fritchman, Brexton Carter, Burke Healy, Anderson Smith, Brody Smith, Brady Mauro, Ryan Morgan and Lucas Stevenson each scored one.

Guenther and Cody Trivits had an assist hat trick. Fritchman, Healy, Smith and John Huss each had a pair of assists. Coveleski, Schell, Jahden Cannon, Carter and Mack Leonhartt each had one.

Cape goalie Augustine Musika made three saves.

“We learn something from every game,” said Cape head coach Geoff Shupard. “Indian River throws different kinds of defenses at you, and our guys did a great job of adapting to them.”

The Vikings will travel to Archmere Saturday, May 27, for a quarterfinal matchup with the No. 2 Auks.
