DRBA Commissioners Cup Pits Cape versus Cape
Caper Tigers Set to Battle the Vikings on September 12
(Cape May, NJ) On Saturday, September 12, the Lower Cape May Regional Caper Tigers will host the Cape Henlopen Vikings for a 1:00 p.m. varsity football game. The winner claims the DRBA Commissioners Cup. The game takes place at Lower Cape May Regional High School located at 687 on U.S. Route 9 in Lower Township, New Jersey. Game tickets are available at the football complex. The Cape Henlopen Vikings lead the series 2-1.
Separated by the Delaware Bay and a short trip aboard the Cape May – Lewes Ferry, the schools renewed their football rivalry in 2010. The Cape Schools hadn’t played in the regular season since the early 1980s. The host Caper Tigers beat the Vikings 25-3 in that first meeting while Cape Henlopen returned the favor on September 17, 2011, winning 32-14. After a two year hiatus, the Cape Henlopen Vikings blanked the Caper Tigers in 2014 to take the series lead.
The Cape May – Lewes Ferry is once again offering group discount ferry tickets for vehicle and foot passenger travel for family and fans to get to the game. For foot passengers, school buses will transport you from the Cape May Terminal to the Lower Cape May Regional High School and back to the Terminal. The Vikings will return to Lewes on the 4:30 p.m. departure.
“We want to encourage and make it easy for Viking fans to attend this game,” said Jennifer Shivers, Customer Service Manager for the Ferry. “Hopefully, the stands will be packed with family and supporters from both schools to watch these student athletes compete.”
Shivers added that fans can also travel with their bicycle for the same discount price. “Lower Cape May Regional High School is very close to the Ferry Terminal. The discount price is valid for any departure that day.”
