Fourth seed Cape Elizabeth, with 15 seniors on their roster, put on a passing clinic for the Eagles in their 5-0 win over Lincoln Academy boys soccer team on Oct. 29 in Cape Elizabeth. The West Class B quarterfinal match-up was played on artificial turf, and the setting was perfect, with cool crisp air, and a beautiful sunset in the backdrop.
The young Eagles, with just two wins and seven ties, have struggled to finish all season. The Capers (5-5-4) showed them how it was done in grand style with all five goals hitting the corners.
Cape Elizabeth held a 19-4 edge in shots, with 14 of those shots on target. Wally Morris made nine saves for the Eagles, and Austin Armstrong three for the Capers.
Cape jumped out to a 3-0 halftime lead. Cole Caswell scored less than a minute into the game on a long shot from the right wing that breached the net at the far post. Caswell made it 2-0 on an Omar Khaliki corner kick at the 26:41 mark. One minute later, Eli Breed scored the third goal of the half on a through pass from Caswell.
RJ Sarka put the Capers up 4-0 2:17 into the second half. Kevin Hare scored the fifth goal 14 minutes into the period.
