The Vikings, seeded fifth, rose to 13-3 with a 1-0 victory over No. 12 Caravel in overtime. Seaford, the fourth seed, lost to 13th-seeded A.I. DuPont 4-0 and Indian River, the 16th seed, lost to top-seeded Wilmington Christian, 4-0, in other first round games.

The losses finished Seaford's season at 13-4 and Indian River's season at 9-8. A.I. is 11-6.

In other first round games, second-seeded St. Mark's beat No. 15 Friends 5-0, No. 6 Archmere beat No. 11 McKean 1-0, No. 10 Newark blanked No. 7 Tatnall 1-0, and No. 9 Wilmington Charter edged No. 8 Glasgow 2-1.

The Vikings survived two overtimes and sudden death to win their first round match 4-3 in penalty kicks in a game that started on Tuesday, May 22, but couldn't be finished until Wednesday, May 23, due to a thunderstorm.

Junior Casey Cahill scored the final penalty kick for the Vikings to give them their 4-3 edge in penalty kicks. She hit the left corner of the net to put Cape ahead and Viking goalie Bonnie Mills stopped Caravel's Jamie Wallace on the next penalty kick to secure the victory.

Cape also got goals in the penalty kick phase from Erin Williams, Lauren Ford and Jessica Folke. The Vikings outshot Caravel 26-13.
