 The Milford High girls’ soccer season kicked off Tuesday against Lake Forest as the Bucs scored a big 5-0 win.
 While the game ended in a 1-1 tie last year, the game had a much different feel this year as Milford pulled out ahead with an early goal by sophomore Bekah Yanacek.  Yanacek continued to play at high level, scoring two more goals in the first half of the game.
 

The Bucs took a 3-0 lead to the field in the second half, and within the first minute, junior midfielder Tara Gleysteen drove a corner kick untouched past her opponents as it bent its way in to the goal for a 4-0 lead.  The scoring ended with a fourth goal by Yanacek who had struck in six goals in three scrimmages during preseason. 
 

Yanacek, a starting goalie last year, has moved from the goal to playing striker and scoring goals.  Senior Jasneet Kaur said that with Yanacek “you have the best of both worlds: a great goalie and a leading scorer.” 

Yanacek said she still sees “room for improvement,” though, and she wants to do “whatever it takes” to help her team.  
 

Milford’s second game did not go as smoothly, though, in a challenging 1-0 loss to Indian River. 

The game began with Milford playing conservatively, trying to keep Indian River from scoring. The lone goal came on a penalty kick after a handball in the box

The second half of the game was defensively dominated with neither team able to put the ball in the goal early.  With five minutes remaining in the game, the Bucs passed the ball up to Yanacek who dribbled around several Indian River defenders, but her shot went up and rimmed off the top of the goal. 
 

Sophomore goalie Brooke Hughes was able to keep all but one of Indian River’s 25 shots out of the goal. Junior defender/goalie Brittney Hughes said the team’s goal is to “allow five goals or less for the entire season.” 
 

Milford’s junior varsity squad lost to Lake Forest, 1-0, but topped Indian River, 3-0, with junior Melissa Leon positing a shutout in goal.  Both squads are 1-1 on the season and will take on Delmar Tuesday at home.
