The Cape Henlopen varsity soccer team went head to head with the wind, driving rain and the Bulldogs Oct. 10, and the Vikings won, downing the visitors from Laurel 6-0.

It took a little time, 31:13 of the first half, before the floodgates opened for the Vikings scorers to hit the net, but when they did it came hard, like a nor'easter on Broadkill Beach.

Zach Swarbrick, Max Euler and Billy Swontek all scored within a five-minute span. Tyler Malloy assisted on two scores, while Drew Mulcahy helped on one.

The second half found Mulcahy, Euler and Swarbrick picking up the scoring honors while Swontek assisted on two; Jack Ashby also had an assist.

Cape had 28 shots in the contest while Laurel had just 1. Vikings goalkeeper Dan Lewis stopped the only Bulldogs scoring attempt.

Cape took 16 corner kicks in the game.

The Vikings will put their 9-1 record on the turf at Legends Stadium  at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 15.
