SCARBOROUGH—The Cape Elizabeth girls' lacrosse team learned its lesson well.

Tuesday evening, the Capers shot to an 8-2 first half lead against visiting Greely, but almost gave it all back, holding on for dear life in an 8-7 triumph.

Fast forward to Saturday, in a highly anticipated showdown between two of the best teams in the state, Cape Elizabeth enjoyed a 6-2 halftime lead at two-time defending Class A state champion Scarborough, but this time, the Capers didn't sit on their advantage, scoring three times in the first five minutes of the second half and never looking back en route to a surprising 11-5 victory.
