One thing for certain, Cape hockey will keep playing. The Vikings have passed through the intersection of Spirit Week and hell week and pulled into the bus barn for an oil change.

They have had three overtime games in six days, the last a dramatic and emphatic sudden victory over archrival Sussex Tech when Allie Yeager sent home a crossing pass from sophomore Erin Coverdale with 2:17 left before everyone went home.

Cape's win came two days after beating Delmar in overtime, also on a Yeager shot with 3:15 left to play. Cape is now 7-0-1 on the season, the lone tie coming against powerhouse Severna Park in overtime Sept. 28.

“Sophomores Erin Coverdale and Lizzie Frederick had the best games of their lives,” coach Kate Windett said after the game. “Maggie Delp is out with an injury and we had two others out for disciplinary reasons. It was a week of emotions and distractions, and we came through it. Tiara Duffy in overtime plays at an entirely different level."

Tech scored early in the game as a flock of Ravens swarmed a loose ball in an unsettled situation with Taylor Kvilhaug pushing the ball into the cage at 24:51.

The Ravens led through halftime, holding off a desperate Cape team that had 20 corners in the game and 19 shots.

One of the corners was converted at 21:30 of the second half as Cam Bernheimer sent home an insertion pass from Tiara Duffy to tie the game and set up another overtime finale.

Cape outshot the Ravens 19-7 with a 20-4 advantage in corners.

Goalie Katie Kolobielski was credited with two saves while Allison Moses had 10 saves for the Ravens.

Cape will play at Woodbridge Tuesday, Oct. 8, at 4 p.m. The Blue Raiders have played everybody tough and own a 2-1 overtime win over Sussex Tech.

The Ravens will host Delmar Tuesday Oct. 8, at 4 p.m. Sussex Tech lost to Delmar 2-1 in the 2012 state tournament.

Note - Polytech remains unbeaten in the Henlopen Conference at 9-0 and has a good chance of being 13-0 when they visit Cape Thursday, Oct. 24, at 7 p.m. The Panthers lost to Delmar in the 2012 state tournament semifinals 3-1.
