 The Dover and Milford High boys’ basketball teams met Tuesday, Jan. 4 to decide the leader of the Henlopen Conference Northern Division. After four hard-fought quarters, Dover came out on top, 73-62.

 Dover dominated early, taking a 19-11 lead at the end of the first quarter as Milford High had already picked up six team fouls, including two by senior Alvino Hazzard.

Down by seven to start the third quarter, Milford rallied, and with three minutes and 13 seconds left, Hazzard made two free throws to tie the score at 41. By the end of the third quarter, Milford had scored 10 straight points to lead, 51-41.

Dover soon went on a scoring spree and cut Milford’s lead to one with 4:27 left in the fourth quarter. The next six points were scored by Dover then scored the next six points before Milford senior Richie McClendon made two free throws, cutting Dover’s lead, 61-58.

Foul trouble eventually caught up with the Bucs with 1:44 remaining when senior Shane Letthand received a technical foul, his fifth with Dover up, 63-58. Senior teammate D.J. Cephas also registered his fifth foul 30 seconds later as Dover went up, 70-58.

“I can’t do anything about it once the calls are made,” said Letthand on receiving the technical foul.

 Much like Letthand, the Bucs (4-2) must realize that they cannot dwell on what happened Tuesday night. Instead, they must prepare for their next game at home Friday night Jan. 8 against Smyrna. Milford topped Smyrna, 90-80 to open the season.

“It’s going to be a war. It’s going to be physical,” said Milford High assistant coach Shawn Snyder.
