Cape Henlopen eliminates rival Dover from playoffs
DOVER, Del – The Cape Henlopen Vikings eliminated Dover from the playoffs for the second consecutive season after a 3-1 victory.
Mason Fluharty pitched six solid innings for the Vikings and worked out of a big bases loaded jam in the sixth inning with a huge strikeout. Robert Baxley tacked on a two-run double to the gap in left-center that got Cape on the board in the first inning. The Vikings never looked back.
Parker Brown got two strikeouts in the seventh to quiet the Dover offense en route to the win. Cape will next take on Appo with a look at the state championship on the line.
