CAPE ELIZABETH – Wednesday night was Senior Night at Cape Elizabeth, and the 10 seniors on Cape’s boys’ lacrosse team made the most of it.

“We play 10 seniors, so we started all 10 seniors,” Cape Elizabeth Coach Ben Raymond said. “Some of them played positions they don’t (normally) play, but we managed to get them all on the field, and we kept them on as a senior group for a good portion of the first quarter.”

The seniors provided an early spark, enabling the Capers to open a 5-0 lead as they ended the regular season with a 10-5 win against Yarmouth in a Class B game.

“It’s been a great senior class, and we just wanted to go out and set a good example,” said senior middie Brian Brett, who scored two goals. “It was Senior Night tonight, so we had all seniors out there and we went to set the tone. We just melded (well) together.”

Despite the win, Cape Elizabeth (11-1) will go into the Western Class B tournament seeded second to Falmouth (11-1), which ended the regular season with a 14-2 win against North Yarmouth Academy.

The Capers dominated the Clippers in the first quarter. They won six of the first seven draws and held an 11-3 edge in shots and an 8-5 edge in ground balls.

“That’s been a theme for this team this season is that we get ourselves into a hole,” Yarmouth Coach David Pearl said. “We played toe to toe with them after that, but we really got ourselves into that hole.”

Yarmouth (6-5) will go into the Eastern Class B tournament as the third seed and could play two playoff games on the road.

Cape held a 6-2 lead at the end of the first half and an 8-3 lead at the end of the third quarter.

“It’s really difficult to stay in a game where you’re always four or five goals down,” Pearl said.

The Capers did a good job of milking their lead.

“We moved the ball pretty well,” Raymond said. “We were very patient. You know, once you get up you’re not in any hurry to score goals.”

The Capers’ Tim Lavallee, a senior attackman, led all scorers with four goals and an assist.

Max Watson led Yarmouth with three goals.

“It’s a good way to end the regular season,” Raymond said. “The best part is we were able to get all our seniors on the field together and have them in together just like they were in the old days.”
