The Milford High School girls’ soccer team spent a week on the road squaring off with Laurel and Woodbridge.  Milford entered the week with a streak of three straight shutouts and added another with a 2-0 win over Laurel before rallying past Woodbridge, 4-1.

Versus Laurel, Milford squeaked by the winless Bulldogs without leading goal scorer Bekah Yanacek who sat out with a knee injury.   The game, in jeopardy due to strong storms to the west, started with a 0-0 first half that saw Laurel with multiple opportunities to score all shut down by sophomore goalkeeper Brooke Hughes. 

Halftime changed the trend for Milford, and as the rain began, so did Milford’s attack.  Midway through the second half, Laurel committed a hand ball, awarding Milford a penalty kick.  Junior midfielder Stefanie Clendaniel placed the kick low and to a corner to sneak it by Laurel’s goalkeeper.

Milford’s attack continued for the rest of the second half, so much so that Hughes never even touched the ball.  Senior forward Morgan Anton added a goal for Milford after having one taken away on a official’s call early in the half.  The 2-0 lead would be enough for Milford to record a fourth straight shutout victory.

Milford’s streak of shutouts would come to an end early against Woodbridge as the Raiders went up quickly, 1-0.  The Bucs responded, though, and rallied for the win. After a goal by senior Sarah Holbruner, the half ended tied at one.

The second half yet again turned the game around for Milford starting with a goal by sophomore Kira Byler, who nailed a shot from thirty yards out over the head of the Raiders’ goalie.  Later in the half, both Anton and Holbruner added a goal to close the scoring. 

At 6-3 on the season, the Bucs have only allowed seven goals through nine games. Next week, the team will play host to Cape Henlopen on Tuesday.

Milford’s junior varsity defeated Woodbridge, 6-0.  Freshmen Amy Wilson and Dina Sefiane both scored two goals, with freshman Mia Fabres- Parker and junior Lindsay Winckoski adding one goal apiece.  The JV record now stands at 3-2-3 on the season.  The team has allowed just three goals in eight games.
