Playing without strong mid-field player Brayden Fannin, the Cape girls' soccer team won 2-1 April 21 on the pitch at Sussex Central. First-half goals from Hannah Bieler and Kassidy Ostan, both assisted by senior Carly Dmiterchik, were all the Vikings needed to secure the win.

"Carly has moved inside to play center mid and really stepped up with those two assists and her defense," said coach Jay Ashby. "Central is a team that can strike quickly, and they are very aggressive on their home turf."

Merci Diaz scored for the Golden Knights at the 25-minute mark, going far post past Vikings goalie Olivia Baratto, who had three shutouts coming into the game.

Liv, as her teammates call her, was credited with nine saves in the game, and most of those were realdeal ticketed attacks that got turned back.

"She is an all-state-caliber goalie, no question about it," said Cape assistant Patrick Kilby.

Freshman Stephanie Lane of Sussex Central had 10 saves for the Golden Knights.

Cape outshot Central 12-10, with a 9-3 advantage in corner kicks.

The Vikings improved to 4-4 on the season with their second straight victory. Cape will host Delmarva Christian Monday, April 25, and Seaford Wednesday, April 27.
