SCARBOROUGH — Twin brothers Owen and Connor Thoreck each scored four goals Saturday afternoon while leading Cape Elizabeth to a 13-6 boys’ lacrosse win over Scarborough.

Owen Thoreck scored his first goal with 5:21 left in the first quarter to give the Capers a 2-1 advantage.

“(Owen) didn’t necessarily create his own goals, he worked off ball, got some work done off (ball),” said Cape Elizabeth Coach Ben Raymond.

The game was tied 2-2 after one quarter. Just over four minutes into the second quarter, Connor Thoreck scored his first goal to give Cape Elizabeth (1-1) a lead it would not relinquish.

“It’s awesome (playing with Owen). We love it, we work on it in the backyard, we definitely come out ready to play. We just want to score goals and win games,” said Connor Thoreck, who scored again with 2:38 to go in the first half to extend the Capers’ lead to 6-3.

“Whenever (Connor) has a short stick on him, he should be looking to go attack the cage. People have a hard time dealing with him when he goes full speed,” said Raymond. “Connor’s performance this afternoon is the difference.”

Cape Elizabeth led 7-3 going into halftime, but Scarborough (2-2) came out firing in the second half as Mason Parks and Marc Guerrette scored in the first 35 seconds to make it 7-5.

“We just wanted to make sure that we continued to push. At that point it was just executing one play at a time,” said Scarborough Coach Joe Hezlep.

The Capers showed great resolve, responding less than a minute later with a goal from Jacob Brydson. Owen Thoreck followed up with a pair of goals in a two-minute span to increase the cushion to 10-5.

“(Connor) is my twin, so we have that connection there. We both really push ourselves really hard and set high expectations and standards,” said Owen. “We just try to go hard on every defender no matter who it is.”

Connor Thoreck scored back-to-back goals to start the fourth quarter, pushing the lead to 12-6.

“I think there’s a little competition (with Owen), not too much. We’re passing or shooting, we just let it happen. We do the best for the team, it’s all for the team,” said Connor Thoreck. “It’s a little bit of a competition, I’d like to say, but most of it is just trying to get goals and assists for the team.”

Freshman goalie Jack Dresser also had a strong game for the Capers, making seven saves.

“(Dresser) is a stud. He played really well and the defense played really well in the clears,” said Owen Thoreck.

Scarborough senior goalie Dominic Joy was peppered with tough shots all afternoon and made 20 saves.

“(Joy) has matured so much. The difference in the goalie from last year is leaps and bounds. Last year, he was a good goalie, but this year his fitness level is better,” said Hezlep.

Cam Thibault scored twice and Marco Manfra had a goal and an assist for Scarborough.

“In typical fashion, Cape (Elizabeth) finishes and executes better than we do, and that was really the story of the day,” said Hezlep.
