The Cape Elizabeth Capers JV proved victorious in a topsy-turvy affair Friday night at Casco Bay Arena. The teams, playing in the league's debut of a "parity round" to ensure the best competition for all teams by the end of the season, showed there was plenty of parity between them as the game was decided by the narrowest of margins.

Cape Elizabeth got off to a strong start in the first period. With an offensive zone face-off in the Windham zone, Chris Laprade won the face-off back to freshman defenseman Ben Payson, who was playing in his first high school game. Payson collected the puck and unloaded a perfect wrist shot high over the goaltender's blocker to edge the Capers in front just two minutes into the game.

Laprade would figure into the second goal as well with a brilliant individual effort. Laprade beat a Windham defenseman one-on-one before making a deft move on the Windham goalkeeper to put the visitors in front 2-0. 

Windham would fight back, however, eventually tying the game at two before the end of the first frame. The game would ebb and flow throughout the second period, with another Caper striking for his first high school goal. Freshman forward Jonas Moon found himself open in the slot, one-timing a perfect pass from none other than Chris Laprade, his third point of the night. 

With the game squared at three late in the second, sophomore Spencer Sprague put the Capers ahead for good. Sprague muscled his way to the front of the net and tapped home a loose puck to edge Cape Elizabeth ahead 4-3. Sprague erupted in celebration, sending the crowd into delirium.

The third period remained scoreless with teams trading scoring opportunities. Windham pulled their goalkeeper with just under a minute to go, but Garrett Mello stood tall in net for Cape Elizabeth, while Stephen Murray and Brendan Goss had several key plays on defense down the stretch to secure the two points for the visiting team.

Cape Elizabeth will try to make it two straight when they square off with Yarmouth next Friday, December 9th. Puck drop is at 6:50 p.m. at Casco Bay Arena.
