Milford falls to Indian River

By Sean Marraffini

After a slow start in the opening week of the season Milford looked to get into a winning grove against Indian River but IR came out on the attack. Throwing for deep yardage and forcing turn overs IR defeated the Buccaneers 41-0.

The Buc’s started off on offensive opting to run. Chas Holden had a short run to get Milford’s offense going. A four and out drive lead to a Milford punt which was run back for a touchdown, putting Indian River up 7-0 after the extra point.

Despite the best efforts of Buc’s quarterback Nicholas Jefferson and the Milford defense the Buccaneers where unable to stop the Indians offense, which used the long ball and good blocking to make it to the end zone

“As I told the boys here, we have to learn from our mistakes,” Head Coach Mike Tkack said. “Now we need to chop away this coming week as we have Sussex Tech coming in. We have to prepare for them.”

“We are going to bust our butts.” Tkack said.

When asked for the game plan against Sussex Tech, “We have to go back to fundamentals.” Tkack said. “We might make some changes but we are going to have the best people out there. Play some Milford Buc football and get after Tech.”
The Buccaneers game vs. Sussex Tech is on Friday, September 23. Game time is 7:30pm.
