Milford Soccer Unable to Continue Streak


By Sean Marraffini

Despite winning their previous two games, the boys’ soccer team was unable to keep it going as they lost to the visiting Sussex Tech Ravens 3-0.

From the opening whistle the game looked like it was going to be a battle for possession between both teams. With a fairly uneventful first half, the Ravens and Bucs chased the ball up and down the field looking to break the deadlock.

With some fancy passing and creative team work the Ravens were able to get a majority of the scoring chances in the first half. Using their big and quick forwards, the Ravens were able to win the ball inside the box and take shots on goal. Milford struggled to get the ball inside the Ravens zone and recorded one shot on goal to Sussex’s 15.

In the 49th minute Sussex Tech would take the lead. The Ravens Jacob Williams set up forward Carlos Ramirez who put the visitors up one.

Not long after Tech would go up 2-0 when a misplayed ball by the Bucs’ Isai Sorcia led to the Ravens second goal. In the 58th minute it looked like Milford would pull one back, but the shot was cleared of the Ravens line at the last second keeping a clean sheet for Sussex Tech keeper Dallas Millner.

In the 64th minute, a pass from Ramirez was crossed to Bebee, who fired a shot to the top right corner; out of the reach of Milford’s keeper McFarland.

“We’re going to take a look at the film, see where we can make improvements and go forward from there.” Outten said.

The Bucs look to get another win in their next game at home on Tuesday, October, 22 against Polytech.
