Cape Henlopen's 2019 DIAA Girls Lacrosse Championship Team

Cape Henlopen's Chloe Schaeffer scored 5 goals with 3 assists as the Vikings won their 11th straight DIAA Girls Lacrosse Championship with a 15-8 triumph over Archmere.

The Vikings looked to get off to a quick start against an Auks program making their first appearance on the title stage, and they accomplished that goal.

Lola Messick set up the offense from behind Archmere's cage twice, feeding Emily Monigle and Sawyer Walker for goals, giving them a 3-0 lead just 8 minutes into the contest.

Chloe Schaeffer would find the goal twice in the opening 6-0 run, as she worked from behind the net, and curled about 8 yards from the cage and unleashed sliding shots.

Mongile added a free position goal, and Cape had that half-dozen start, having kept Archmere off the board for the first 19 minutes.

Meghan Reilly finally cracked the score column for Archmere with 5:46 to go in the half, and Katie Olsen soon followed with a curling goal from in front of the net.

The half ended on a series of 5 free-position goals in the last 2:11, with Cape Henlopen claiming 3 of them to take an 11-4 lead into halftime.

Alia Marshall opened the second half with a goal, and the Auks could get no closer than 7 goals the rest of the way.

Cape Henlopen's dominance continued in a sport they'd never reached the final of, before this 11-year run.

Schaeffer's 8 point-night was aided by Marshall's five goals, as the longest-active single-sport run in DIAA sports continued.
