The Milford High School girls’ soccer team entered a busy week, playing three games instead of the normal two. The week for Milford included a lot of defense in three shutout wins.

“Any time you win three games in one week, it is a good thing,” pointed out Milford senior Danielle Gove after the team’s 1-0 win over Dover Saturday night.

The Bucs kicked off the week with a 2-0 win against Seaford. After playing to a first-half 0-0 draw, the Bucs, entering the game fresh off a three-game losing streak, would see a change in luck in the second half as junior midfielder Tara Gleysteen struck in the first goal of the game putting Milford up 1-0. Later in the half, sophomore midfielder Jaimey Rouse scored a goal putting Milford up 2-0.

Despite all the good defense, Milford felt a large blow when senior fullback Elysia Liriano injured her leg. Liriano’s doctor later diagnosed her with a torn ACL, which will sideline her for the rest of the season.

After the emotional victory against Seaford, Milford traveled to Polytech and once again played strong defensively, even without Liriano, to put away the Panthers, 2-0. Sophomore striker Bekah Yanacek led the offensive attack for Milford with a goal 29 minutes into the first half, and the game remained 1-0 until the final minute when Yanacek added one more to close the scoring.

Milford’s week would end on the turf at Dover High School Saturday night as Yanacek opened the scoring with a goal less than 20 minutes into the game. From that point, Milford’s five defenders to hold off the Dover attack. Late in the game, Dover took several shots, but they all ended up in the hands of sophomore goalkeeper Brooke Hughes.

Milford (4-3) has been led by Yanacek’s seven goals and the play of Hughes who has held teams to just three goals in her six games played. The four wins have all come against teams which either tied or beat the Bucs last season – the program’s first that ended with a winning record.

The Milford High junior varsity team tied Seaford, 0-0, beat Polytech, 2-1, and tied Dover, 0-0, to even its record at 2-2-3 on the season.

Milford will travel to Laurel on Tuesday and Woodbridge Friday.
