The Milford High School varsity soccer girls recorded their best season ever ending with an impressive 10 wins and their first-ever bid to the Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association state tournament.

The 16th-seeded Bucs (10-4-1) will open play at home at Briggs Stadium, starting at 8 p.m. Tuesday versus the undefeated top seed Caesar Rodney (15-0). CR has allowed just three total goals this season and defeated the Bucs, 2-0, earlier in the season.

Milford’s season began well with a strong 5-0 win against Lake Forest as sophomore striker Bekah Yanacek scored four goals. Unfortunately for the Bucs, three straight losses to Indian River, Delmar and CR changed their luck as they failed to score in seven consecutive halves.

Two big goals by sophomore Jaimey Rouse and Junior Tara Gleysteen would help the Bucs get back to their winning ways versus Seaford. Then, Yanacek would go on to score Milford’s next three goals in wins over Polytech and Dover.

The winning streak continued against Laurel and Woodbridge before the Bucs let a 3-0 lead on Cape Henlopen slip away as the Vikings would rally for a 3-3 tie.

After a 2-0 loss to Sussex Tech, Milford came back striking, scoring four goals in the first half against Sussex Central en route to a 4-2 win that would spark three more wins to close the season, including key victories over Red Lion and conference rival Smyrna.

In their regular-season finale, senior Morgan Anton led the scoring with four goals as the Bucs defeated Campus Community, 8-0.

Milford’s 10-4-1 record marks the best in the program’s relatively short history. Yanacek led the team with 15 goals, followed by Anton with 10. The Bucs overcame key injuries which sidelined Yanacek and sophomore goalie Brooke Hughes for a few games and senior Elysia Liriano for the season. The 16th-seeded Bucs (10-4-1) will open play at home at Briggs Stadium, starting at 8 p.m. Tuesday versus the undefeated top seed Caesar Rodney (15-0).
