Making good on a pre-game friendly wager, Mayor Michael Beck traveled aboard the Cape May – Lewes Ferry to meet Lewes Mayor Ted Becker for lunch. The ceremony took place inside the Lewes Ferry Terminal overlooking the Delaware Bay.
On Saturday, September 10, the Cape Henlopen Vikings bested the Lower Cape May Regional Caper Tigers 49-12 in a varsity football game to claim the 2016 DRBA Commissioners Cup. The game took place at Legends Stadium, home of the Cape Henlopen Vikings. Separated by the Delaware Bay and a short trip aboard the Cape May – Lewes Ferry, the schools renewed their football rivalry in 2010. The host Caper Tigers beat the Vikings 25-3 in that first meeting while Cape Henlopen has won the last four clashes. The Vikings now leads the series, 4-1. Athletic competition between the two schools brings the Twin Capes closer together.
