February 15, 2023

Cape coach Patrick Woods didn’t pull any punches when describing the Vikings’ 45-32 victory over Caesar Rodney Feb. 14.

“Ugly wins are better than ugly losses,” said the fifth-year head coach. “We didn’t do much right tonight. I thought we were sloppy, we didn’t shoot well, we didn’t rebound well and we didn’t take care of the ball well. But we made some plays. We got downhill and got some layups eventually.”

Freshman Amalia Fruchtman led the Vikings with 14 points, 14 rebounds and three blocked shots. Ja’Onna Lee zigzagged through the defense for 12 points while grabbing five rebounds. Hayden Hudson recorded nine rebounds and three blocks. Junior Mya Maull chipped in nine points.

“We came out thinking we were just going to win,” said Lee. “We didn’t have a lot of energy at the beginning of the game, for sure. We were saying in the locker room that it was good we had a game like this tonight rather than down the road. This game will keep us more locked in for the rest of the games.”

Ava Zerrad paced the Riders with nine points.

The Vikings move to 17-2, while the Riders are 7-12.
