The Cape Henlopen Vikings girls lacrosse team defeated Tatnall Hornets to take back the DIAA girls lacrosse state championship. Tatnall came into this year as the reigning state champs after beating Cape last year 10-9 at Delaware State University. 


Cape took a 4-2 lead in the first quarter and never relinquished the lead. The two teams matched goals in the second quarter at 2 goals apiece. But a big third quarter by the Vikings put the game away. 


Cape scored 6 goals in the third quarter to take a 12-7 lead that proved to be too much for Hornets. The Vikings stepped up their defense in the fourth quarter only allowing 1 goal by the Hornets to hold on for a 12-8 victory. 


Cape was led by Louise Rishko and Lindsay D’Ambrogi who each scored 3 goals a piece. Claire Lopez and Haley Gamuciello each added 2 goals a piece. 


Tatnall was led by Charlotte Wilkinson who scored 3 goals.
