Shelby Thomas and Mallory McDonald each scored twice as the Lady Vikings scored a 4-0 win over Delmar May 2 at Legends Stadium.

Stephanie Mendez provided a pair of assists while Thomas and Joanne Garcia each tallied one. Cape outshot the Wildcats 10-2.

Olivia Baratto had two saves for the Vikings.

Cape moved its record to 7-3-1 on the season while Delmar dropped to 2-8-1.

The Vikings are scheduled to play at Sussex Central, 5-5, at 4 p.m., Monday, May 6.

Cape will host Sussex Tech at 7 p.m., Tuesday, May 7. The Ravens are 9-1. Cape plays Tuesday, May 14, on the road at Polytech, now 9-1, then plays May 16 at 11-0 Caesar Rodney.

A pair of wins in the last four games would likely earn Cape a berth in the state tournament.
