Cape assists were Craig and Clausius with three; Keen, Mendez and Ella Rishko with two; and Lexi Nowakowski and Bragg with one each. Saves in goal for Cape were Destiny Kusen with four and Anna Lopez with two.
Sophia Ludt had both goals for the Mallards.
Coach Lindsey Underwood said, “We looked good at Worcester. The girls really played as one unit, which is what we have been talking about. We have talked about ignoring all the noise, staying off social media and things like that so we can just focus on what we need to do. Have a few girls still on the mend, but hopefully everyone will be ready to go this week.”
Underwood added: “The freshmen have been stepping up and have been making huge strides quickly for us. Carrie [Clausius] had a huge game again, and Lexi [Nowakowski] does all the work that goes unnoticed in the stat book. Lulu [Rishko] has really been a steady force in the midfield for us this whole season as well. Senior Haley Craig stepped up for us as well.”
Cape will play at Lake Forest Tuesday, April 27, and Caesar Rodney Wednesday, April 28, before hosting Sussex Academy Friday, April 30.
