The Vineyard girls varsity soccer team capped off senior day with its first home victory of the season, a 5-0 whitewashing of Cape Tech, Friday, at Dan McCarthy Field.

Courtney Mussell scored the match winner in the first minute of play. Jesse Chandler and Maddie Hughes added two goals each, as the Vineyarders completed a sweep of the Crusaders. MV won in Harwich last week, 3-0.

The Islanders ended the season with a 3-0 loss at Mashpee on Tuesday.

Despite finishing with a 2-11-3 record, the girls showed character and sportsmanship, and represented some of the best traits of interscholastic competition.
