The Cape soccer squad moved to 2-1 with a 4-0 shutout of the Ravens Sept. 15 at Sussex Tech. The Ravens drop to 0-3 and have yet to hit the twine with a goal.
Cape sophomore Aldo Hernandez-Becerra scored twice just five minutes apart in the first half, assisted by Tiarnan Hefferan and Evan Burris. Brandon Somoza-Lima finished the first-half scoring at the 35-minute mark off a pass from Hernandez-Becerra.
Hernandez-Becerra finished off the Vikings’ barrage with a goal at 52 minutes off an assist from Diego Orozco-Carillo.
The Vikings outshot the Ravens 9-8 and held a 9-1 advantage in penalty corners.
Cape keepers Dalson Case and Dru Schneider stopped eight Tech shots while Ravens goalie Anthony Willey made five saves.
“We are very happy to get our first Henlopen North win of the season,” said Cape coach Patrick Kilby. “We have a very special player in Aldo Hernandez-Becerra. He provided three goals and one assist tonight. Our hope is that we can keep him going in a positive trend where he’s providing an offensive output that will keep us competitive in future matches. Tonight was a team win, and every player had substantial playing time. We showed well at every level of the roster. We now have to prepare for a very strong Sussex Central team. We know they will bring a very strong offensive effort.”
Cape will travel to Sussex Central Tuesday, Sept. 21, while the Ravens host Caesar Rodney.
